Close to the picturesque Croyde Village and set right by Croyde Bay Beach, one of Devon’s best surfing spots, you can enjoy a variety of activities nearby. Walk over the headlands to discover nearby Saunton Sands or Woolacombe Beach or head out to Combe Martin Wildlife Park where little ones will love making friends with the animals.

On-park, try the obstacle course, 230 ft slide in our Tropical Adventure Pool, soft play, surf lessons and even fishing!

We had a marvellous time. Most impressed because out of 3 repairs needed in our chalets 2 were seen to immediately. Beds comfy. Lashings of hot water! Efficient heating system which we needed for 2/7 days..only in April.
Walks delightful..village near..baggy point has beautiful views and surf was up every day!
Choose a chalet facing South, they are great!

PortsmouthGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
We were very disappointed that we had to pay for swimming, the information sheets in the caravans were out of date, swim times wrong, difficult to get into show bar when the arcade was busy, very little to do on site.

GuildfordGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
Beautiful location, good facilities. Pool good although changing area could do with updating as dirty and old. Shop well stocked, food at the restaurants good and fish and chips not bad either. Very close to beach.

GloucesterGBGroups (5 or more accommodation)
Not good for group bookings, 20+ years of booking up to 48 friends and families for the annual get together in the same caravans every year, next year they offset the booking days so we can’t arrive on the same day, the site staff tried changing it at head office to no avail, it appeared to be stubbornness without good reason, not the way to keep good business, we are actively seeking another venue, or possibly abroad for the same money utilising economy of scale.

Ross-on-WyeGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
A nice little park. A quite location great for a few days.
Easy access to the beach which is a short walk from site.
Swimming pool is quite small and we had to cue for around hour on both occasions.
Nice on site restaurant but the on site fish and chip shop is hit & miss depending on who serves you. (We found the lady who was manager very rude and she literally gave our kids 8 chips in their meals.
Check in is very busy as the main car park is very small so we had to park away from reception and walk back.
For the money we have no major complaints but we would probably go to a slightly larger park with more on site next time.
