Stowford Manor Farm Campsite

51 units · Glamping, Motorhomes, Tents25 acres · Trowbridge, England
We are a family run farm situated in the beautiful Frome valley. The farm has a range of interests from the traditional Jersey milking cows to a community of workshops used by local craftsmen. The cafe serves cream teas from Easter to the end of September and pizzas are sold in evenings during the summer months. Ours is a small family run camp site with the River Frome on one side, next to the medieval buildings of Stowford Farm. The river is suitable for fishing, boating, swimming and paddling. Historic Bradford-on-Avon is only a 5 minute drive and the City of Bath 15 minutes. For those who enjoy more rural pleasures, 200 metres from the campsite Farleigh Hungerford boasts the only river swimming club in the country, and you can become an instant member for a very small fee.

Red Sky at Night Campsite

11 units · Motorhomes, Tents10 acres · Monmouth, Wales
If you’re lucky, you’ll get to see at least one of the amazing sunsets at Red Sky at Night Campsite near Monmouth – but if you don’t, there’s mighty compensation in the shape of the spectacular views from just about everywhere on the site. And of course, on clear nights, the night skies are diamond-bright with stars - we are under one of Wales' Dark Sky Reserves! This family-run camping field on a livestock farm is managed on very laidback lines. Pitch up wherever you like and feel free to park by your tent (weather permitting). Raised campfires are allowed and you can hire firepits and grills (the owners sell local eggs & sausages) and buy bags of wood & kindling. You can bring your dogs too (take them for walks in the adjoining woods) but just be sure to keep them on a lead. Kids are certainly carefully looked after here. Get a fact sheet on arrival and join mini-campers in wildlife hunts through the trees, looking out all the while for buzzards and red kites. Round and about the site, your offspring can entertain themselves on rope swings, making dens and following a mini-tractor course across the camping field. There’s also a football pitch. Wild camping this may be (there’s no electricity on site, please note) but there are two nicely designed compost loos and a covered sink areas with fresh water tap. So bring your guitar, light that fire, break out the barbecue and enjoy the chilled vibe.

Girt Down Camping

11 units · Motorhomes, Tents20 acres · England
Set the edge of Exmoor, we have unrivalled coastal views, direct access to the South West Coast Path and Combe Martin bay is just a little walk away (perfect for paddle-boarding and dolphin spotting!). Choose your pitch, settle down by a fire pit and watch the sun set across Combe Martin bay. With pizza’s available on some weekends, breakfast baguettes for breakfast and a selection of farm produce available - we have everything you could need! With footpaths from the farm in all directions you can join the South West Coast Path or just ramble down to the village with where there are shops, cafes and pubs. With full flushing toilets and hot showers, as well as a washing up area, there is even an old railway carriage with electric plugs to charge your phone or dry your hair, with a fridge and freezer to look after your supper too. We are a small site focusing on that quiet get-away. There is no road noise, just the farmer going about his day job, who’s more than happy to chat about the wildlife, birds and weather!

Farm campsites in South West England with campfires guide

Overview

South West England packs a punch when it comes to natural attractions—two national parks, four UNESCO sites, and more Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty than any other region. The idyllic coast and countryside of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, and Somerset offer plenty of perfect places to pitch a tent whether you fancy a site near the sea or a rural retreat. Seaside resorts and surf breaks await along the rocky shores of Cornwall and Devon, while inland is prime for hiking, biking, and horse riding across the moorlands of Exmoor and Dartmoor. Add in the usually warmer weather of the south and it’s no wonder that so many campers holiday in South West England. Summer is peak season for coastal campers, but many choose to return to admire the fall foliage or spring wildflowers. Winters are wet and windy but milder than elsewhere in the UK, making it a safe bet for campervan and caravan trips. South West England is a region well worth exploring—and a camping holiday is the perfect way to do it.

Where to go

Gloucestershire and Wiltshire

The enigmatic ruins of Stonehenge draw crowds to Wiltshire, and attending the Summer Solstice celebrations is a bucket-list must for adventurous campers. If glamping and gastro-pubs is more your style, nowhere does idyllic countryside quite like the Cotswolds, with its rolling green hills, honey-coloured stone cottages, and numerous celebrity residents. To the south, hikers can also set out along the legendary Offa's Dyke Path, a National Trail that runs between England and Wales.

Somerset and Dorset

The cities of Bristol and Bath are the gateway to the rural regions of Somerset and Dorset, where the beach is never more than a few hours’ drive away. Some of the best hiking and camping is found in the Exmoor National Park, but equally rewarding is a hike through the Cheddar Gorge. More than 40% of Dorset is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so it’s not hard to find a pretty pitch. Set up camp near the beach (sandy favourites include Weymouth and Bournemouth) or in the wide-open Dorset countryside. In Somerset, great campsites sit on its 40-mile stretch of coast (try Minehead, Weston-super-Mare, or the start of the South West Coastal Path), but even more lie inland. The Somerset Levels and Moors make up a flat landscape of fertile low-lying land perfect for farm and meadow campsites, while the Mendips, Blackdown Hills, and Quantocks are all Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Devon

With a north and south coast, plus a whole lot of countryside sandwiched in between, Devon’s sea views and hillside hikes make prime terrain for outdoor enthusiasts on camping holidays. Explore the wild landscapes of the Exmoor and Dartmoor national parks, where native ponies roam freely across the moors. Continue to the south coast to discover the Jurassic Coast, stopping at the port towns of Torquay and Brixham or surfer-friendly beaches like Croyde and Woolacombe, and don’t forget to try some traditional English scones, served with jam and Devonshire clotted cream. Like neighbouring Cornwall, Devon has plenty of campsites for experiencing the charms of both coast and country.

Cornwall

Soaring sea cliffs, tranquil fishing villages, and blue flag beaches provide the backdrop for hiking, camping, and exploring in Cornwall. Check into a beachfront campsite along the Cornish Riviera, try a countryside farm campsite instead, head to the surf mecca of Newquay on the north coast, or escape the crowds on the Isles of Scilly. Other must-dos include a visit to Land’s End, the westernmost point of mainland Britain, and a hike along the South West Coast Path. During a Cornwall camping holiday, you can get a taste for this fiercely independent county with Cornish pasties, cream teas, and ice creams. On days out from your campsite, visit the most westerly point of the British mainland at Land’s End or the most southerly point on the Lizard peninsula.

Top things to do while camping in South West England

  1. Have a cream tea. Devonshire or Cornwall, it’s up to you—as is whether you prefer jam on the cream or cream on the jam!
  2. Take a walk on the 630-mile South West Coast Path, which edges all the counties in South West England.
  3. Build sandcastles on one of the region’s sandy beaches.
  4. Hone your skills on a surfboard. Beginner or old hand, the south west is England’s surfing capital.
  5. Check out the geology—see the fossils and chalky stacks of Dorset and Devon, the cliffs of Cornwall, or the caves of Somerset.
  6. Enjoy West Country produce: apples, cider, and cheese, among other things, make for perfect picnic lunches on days out from your campsite.
  7. Visit a national park. Hit Exmoor or Dartmoor to explore the heathland and see free-roaming ponies.
