We visited as three families on caravan touring and camping fields and had a great time. Location is great for beach, Croyde Village (a short walk across the fields) and the NT's Baggy Point.
Facilities are top notch and not too dear, although peak season the showers, toilets etc coped well and no complaints. The club had some dubious acts on in the evening but kids seemed to enjoy themselves.
A little on the expensive side but Ruda's central location saved us £5-£10 a day in car park charges elsewhere.
We asked the three grandchildren if they wanted to go to Spain next year or Croyde and they all voted for the Devon beach holiday.
Just a word of warning the traffic in Braunton is a joke. Long queues and delays throughout the holiday season are unacceptable. If the local council wants the stacation visitors to return they need to do something about this bottleneck.
Note to Ruda management - although good security patrols where in evidence throughout our stay a group of itinerants did slip onto the touring site and pitched up for a free day of surfing and use of the showers etc. They stayed from 1000hrs through to about 2000hrs before slipping away.
