If you would enjoy escaping to an award winning beach during your holiday then Challaborough Bay is the perfect holiday park for you. The beach holds a prestigious Blue Flag Award and is one of the best beaches in the country. The beautiful surrounding area is credited as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with blue seas to paddle in, rugged paths to explore, tiny villages to discover and wonderful views across to historic Burgh Island- an all-around perfect location for a getaway.

On-park there are fantastic facilities to ensure your fun never stops. Splash around in the heated indoor pool, challenge the family to a game of pool or darts, beat your high score in the amusement arcade and let the little ones run wild in the soft play or adventure playground.

All that fun will work up an appetite which is why there is delicious food and drink available on-park. Dine out with the whole family at The Waterfront Bar & Restaurant, enjoy a cold drink while you take in all the excellent live entertainment at The Venue, or perhaps you will fancy the traditional taste of the seaside with fish and chips to-go from the Fish & Chippery.

Amazing accommodation awaits you here at Challaborough Bay. From caravans with up to 3 bedrooms, lodges and even an Ocean View Cottage available, there’s something to suit every family.
