In a quiet, unspoiled corner of South East Devon, where rolling hills meet red sandstone cliffs, lies Ladram Bay Holiday Centre. Well established and family owned, here is the ideal base for a perfect get-away-from-it-all holiday.

Our private beach, just a few minutes stroll from your holiday home, has clean, sea-washed pebbles with sand and rock pools at low tide. The sheltered bay is great for safe bathing and all water sports from fishing to wind surfing – bring your own boat or hire one from the beach. Sorry – no jet skis allowed.

The beautiful coastline is unsurpassed for walking, painting, geology, fitness training (you can run up the hills?). Look out for special ‘theme’ weekends, or how about bringing your own club or group to Ladram Bay for a great holiday enjoying your favourite pastimes with friends.

A pleasant half hour ramble through farmland takes you into the nearby thatched village of Otterton, or if you’re feeling more energetic, a few miles in either direction along the heritage coastal paths will take you to the traditional and uncommercialised towns of Sidmouth or Budleigh Salterton. A short drive in your car will get you to a wide range of interesting places and attractions – full details are available in reception.

There is a superb shopping and amusements complex and a launderette. The indoor heated swimming pool (supervised at all times), games room, 10 pin bowling, crazy golf course, pool room plus free family entertainment every day of the week during the high season, complete the ingredients to help you and your children enjoy a happy, care-free holiday here at Ladram Bay.

Ladram Bay

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ladram Bay is located in East Devon, England.

The caravan park is the second largest holiday centre in Devon. It was started by FWS carter in 1950. The site hosts the first Digital TV Transponder in the United Kingdom. Mr FWS Carter passed away in 2012.

The bay is situated on Otter Sandstone of Triassic age which is the same rock that forms the oil reservoir at the Wytch Farm oilfield near Poole. The sea stacks are composed of the same rock, which is relatively soft, but they have a harder band of sandstone at their base which prevents their rapid erosion by the sea. At the south-west end of the bay pale pipes can be seen in the sandstone: these represent the roots of plants that were able to survive in the harsh dry climate of the Triassic.
