Top Camping Spots in the South West


The South West of England offers up some extraordinary views and a healthy mixture of sand, sea and rolling green countryside - in other words, a camping location to keep everyone happy. We’ve selected the cream of the camping crop on offer in the South West. By The Sea Surf’s up in the South West. There are so many camp sites along the coast that can provide the perfect base to go exploring miles upon miles of stunning beaches. If you pitch up at Sennen cove, an onsite bus route can take you and fellow campers to St Ives and Land’s end to explore some of the best coastal scenery the UK has to offer. Once your day trip is sorted, why not book an early morning surf lesson with one of many local surf schools in Cornwall? Kite and wind-surfing is also available in nearby campsites so if you’ve always wanted to dip your toe in the water of extreme sports on holiday, the crystal-blue Cornish waves are a great place to start. In The Woods If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure to spot great camping potential. Especially if said woods are the beautiful and majestic Devonshire woodland. Campers and glampers alike can take their pick from all 8 acres of it, whether you choose to settle into a furnished wooden deck or an open-air spot of your own choosing. With short walks to the beach and an abundance of logs for evening campfire sessions, the Devonshire woodland is one of the more versatile camping hot spots. Perfect for families and large groups who wish to experience camping outside the norm. Under The Stars For those in need of a no-fuss and no-frills camp site, the quiet and unassuming area of Combe Martin will do nicely. Slap bang between Exmoor National Park and some of Devon’s most prolific beaches, you can be well-hidden from the hustle and bustle of tourism that lines the coast in summer without losing out on the spectacular views. If you want to spend nights of beautiful isolation, sharing the area only with wildlife, we’d urge you to make this your new secret spot. If you decide to set up camp in the South West, be mindful of a few basic on-site rules. Following a basic camping code of conduct will ensure an enjoyable, stress-free stay for you and for future visitors.
