Holiday Park Breaks
Combe Martin Beach Holiday Park
Holiday parks are perfect places to bring the family for a break, often accentuating North Devon’s rural and coastal location with activities galore for all ages and interests.
Ruda Holiday Park in Croyde has a close proximity to Croyde Bay Beach, offering an on-site surf school for beginners to get immersed in one of North Devon’s biggest communities. With a pool and kids club based at the park, it’s also not far from Cascades - a well loved local waterpark with slides, rapids and flumes. Bideford Bay Holiday Park has a pool with a waterslide, outdoor activities, and is a stone’s throw from Buck’s Mills and the stunning North Devon coast. Both parks are offering prime prices through the duration of the Easter holidays, with some availability still left over Easter weekend itself.
The popular seaside town of Combe Martin has a selection of parks, including Sandaway Beach, which has a busier, family-orientated environment, and Combe Martin Beach Holiday Park, which is slightly more rural and offers a peaceful break for families. Both of these are lucky enough to have their own private cove beaches, as well as on-site entertainment and links to North Devon’s local attractions, like the Valley of the Rocks and local beaches. Both parks are offering package deals for over the Easter holidays, and if you get in quick enough you may be able to still snatch up a reservation!
Croyde Bay Holiday Park is one of North Devon’s most loved holiday destinations. Close to Croyde Bay, it’s well connected to the beach and sand dunes, with a vibrant village and plenty to do on site.
Lower Campscott Farm
Whilst North Devon is renowned for its beaches and coastal proximity, it’s also a rural area, offering visitors a chance to really step into nature and the rustic lifestyle. Farm holidays are the perfect opportunity for this, and are particularly loved by families.
Bampfield Holiday Cottages offer the perfect combination between country life and charming, comfortable holiday cottages. Guests are welcome to collect eggs and watch the cows being milked - during April, they may even get to see the baby calves being born!
Similarly, Lower Campscott, near Woolacombe, provides hands-on animal feeding as well as tractor and trailer rides around the farm, with an outdoor play area for kids. It’s closely located to Woolacombe, Mortehoe, Lee Bay and Ilfracombe, so there’s plenty to do, as well as having the added bonus of being nearby North Devon’s famous beaches for the best of both worlds. There’s still Easter holiday availability for a number of beautiful cottages when the farm will be making the most of the Spring season.
Camping and Caravan Breaks
Newberry Valley Park
Camping and caravan holidays are another popular choice of holiday here in North Devon; after all, with stunning rural or coastal views, why wouldn’t you want to make the most of them?
Stowford Farm Meadows offer the same rural feel as a farm holiday would, but with a big and bustling park packed full of entertainment for the whole family.

For the Easter break, they’ve got a fantastic offer available; when you book 7 consecutive nights over the Easter weekend, you’ll receive a £40 discount off the price of your booking!
North Morte Farm offers some spectacular views, as it’s situated right over the coast and is surrounded by beautiful rural greenery. By being located along the South West Coast Path, there’s plenty to do and see, with the nearby village of Mortehoe within walking distance, and an array of beaches ranging from quiet Rockham to Woolacombe’s famous shores. Camping and caravans are both really reasonably priced during mid-season, with under 5s staying free.

There are also various wellbeing courses on offer for those who really need a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life; and really, what better time to rejuvenate than over Easter?
Whatever kind of holiday you’re looking to take this Easter, North Devon will have the perfect location and accommodation to welcome you. With so many events taking place for children and families over the holidays, why would you want to miss out?
