National Sandcastle Competition, Croyde Bay 2014

Croyde Bay, Devon is hosting the UK National Sandcastle Competition 2014!

Grab you bucket and spade and join the fun!

After a very successful competition at Croyde Bay Beach last year, our sand sculptors raised over £2,500 for the fantastic local charity, North Devon Hospice. The day was full of excitement with live music, trampolines, ice cream trailers, face painting and of course some wonderful sandcastles.  With the help of the organisers at North Devon Homes we are going to do it all again!

The event takes place on Sunday 31st August and we are looking to recruit as many teams as possible for both the junior and adult competitions. Whether you’re a sandcastle enthusiast or just a beginner, we welcome teams of all abilities to join in the fun – register your place now. Bring along friends, family or even a colleague or two to take part!

This magnificent competition takes place whatever the weather, and if last year was anything to go by, make sure you bring the sun cream! There will be refreshment stations on the beach, not forgetting plenty of ice cream and activities for little ones. Plus after a hard day’s building, the quaint village of Croyde is just down the road, perfect for enjoying a celebratory beverage or two with your team mates!

If you fancy making the most of the weekend why not book a break at Ruda Holiday Park? Ruda is set just steps from Croyde Bay beach, nestled behind the sand dunes, making it a perfect base for taking part in the action. Plus you can enjoy our on-site surf school, fantastic facilities and free evening entertainment!

We have some fantastic new holiday homes for 2014, so book early to bag your first choice. Whether you prefer a caravan or luxury lodge, you’ll have somewhere cosy with all the comforts of home to retire to after a fun packed day of competing.

And who knows, maybe you’ll be crowned king or queen of the sandcastle!

Find out more and book your stay now at Ruda Holiday Park or Surfer’s Paradise.
