Visited this site last week courtesy of a Sun Hoiday deal. Pleasantly surprised to be allocated a Ashford caravan on arrival (despite only paying the basic price) which had 3 bedrooms (double and 2 twins) which had plenty of space for us (2 Adults, 2 small children). Despite the weather being pretty awful for the duration of our stay, we still had a wonderful time. Although we were grateful for the heating in the bedrooms and gas fire in the lounge.
The caravan and park were wonderfully clean and well maintained. All the staff were extremely polite, friendly and very helpful. And although the entertainment wasn't of a stellar standard, my children were more than happy with Sid & Lizzie and the entertainment on offer each day.
I have visited Croyde for many years (since 1996) and have never stayed at Ruda. Although I can imagine it being a bit frantic in peak season, I would have absolutely no hesitation in returning again for another short break and hope to see the team at Ruda again next year.
If I had one niggle, it would be the selection of drinks in the bar areas. It would be nice if they stocked more local brands rather than the type of stuff you can buy in any Wetherspoons pub throughout the country.
