Stopped in a Closely lodge which is a six berth having two twin rooms and one double ensuite. Good size kitchen, diner lounge any a useful utility room. Very clean and in good decorative order. Only down side is that the lodge has only one allocated parking space and there is little additional parking spaces. Some lodges have two allocated...

Fantastic location! Stones throw from an amazing beach and most caravans have a partial, if not full view of some sea! Lovely spot! We had a westleigh caravan upgraded on a sun newspaper hol and it was lovely and clean and modern. Pity about the lack of storage in this caravan though, I've been in lower graded ones and had...

Great venue, Wells mini's have been here a couple of times and always looked after. Fantastic rugby fun, adults and kids on the beach followed by BBQ at the top of the site. Amazing views over Ruda Bay. Swimming pool a hit with the kids and the bars were enjoyed by the parents

We had a lovely time at Ruda, great location and site. Beach about 5 minutes away and village around 10 minute walk. Baggy point definitely worth a visit. The reason for 4 out of 5, is I would have liked the kitchen a bit cleaner. The drawers were a bit dirty. Apart from that linen and bathroom very clean. The...

We booked ruda through the sun holidays promotions. Having not done this before we was a little bit unsure at what to expect. We was more than happy when we arrived. Having a 5 hour long trip with a grumpy 6month and a bored 4 year old we arrived early and went to reception which the lovely lady sorted us...
