Carefree camping and glamping in Devon with a nature-friendly setting and imaginative owners

It takes an imaginative eye to create a place as special as Hideaway Camping, a remote, aptly named 24-acre campsite at the end of a private track in rural Devon. What to you and I may appear a rag-taggle of interwoven branches and overgrown trees, to Amy Rogers was the prime setting for a fairy glade,with tiny fairy doors, secret grottos and an enticing, natural entrance woven out of living willow trees. A tall cluster of young birches? Why that should become a hammock garden, of course. And those rocks? Well, roll them out, winch them up and we have our very own miniature Stonehenge, a ‘Hideaway Henge’ around the campfire.

It’s this synergy between the campsite owners’ creative ideas and the varied wilderness of the setting that makes Hideaway such a perfect spot. Great mature trees encircle the field, nature trails snake among the forest and the pond is left serene, untouched and wild. At its heart, of course, is the large, flat camping meadow itself, with heaps of space for pitching your tent and for little ones to run wild. A covered cabin offers plenty of facilities – showers, impressive throne-like loos, a shared kitchen area – and there’s a rainy day space with books, board games and the like. Such things also inject an extra social element to the place. Children will have made friends for life here by the end of day one – even if some of them happen to be fairies or the four gregarious kune kune pigs.

The well-spaced out grass camping pitches are accompanied by a handful of quirky glamping options that continue the creative trend. There’s a romantic wooden shepherd’s hut, a bow top gypsy caravan with an accompanying kitchen, a classic American Airstream trailer that was painstakingly restored over several years, and a pair of moulded igloos; dome-shaped cocoons with bubble windows, proper beds and soft furnishings. All have their own unique charm but share in the general vibe of the campsite – chilled out, carefree and condusive to nights beside a campfire.

Should you make your way along the farm track and back to the outside world, there’s ample opportunity to discover the rest of Devon. A convenient A-road whips you south to Dartmoor, which is less than 10 minute’s away by car, or, in the opposite direction, to Bude and the North Cornwall coast. And if the everyday hardships of ice-cream on the beach, walks in the moors and waterfall wandering in nearby Lydford Gorge leave you feeling rundown, you can even return to massage therapies and herbal treatments back at camp. Who knew that the official home of relaxation was hidden down a half-mile lane in rural Devon?

The site is well secluded in tranquil farmland, abounding with birdlife. The pitches are more than generous.

Amazing glamming trip!
We really enjoyed our stay in Hideaway Campsite. The area was absolutely amazing and the forest is just magical. We received a free upgrade as our UFO pod was waterlogged but the upgrade was fabulous on the airstream trailer and it had everything you needed for a fully equipped trip. There is a beautiful stream on site and the whole place was a stunning natural environment and we will defiantly be going back again. All I would suggest is you take food and drink on the site because you really are miles from any shops but there is great local pub that sells home cooked food and it was yummy. Defiantly worth a visit

Great campsite but needs to be clea
This is a lovely quiet spacious campsite and the hosts are really helpful and welcoming. The area around the campsite is great for the kids with little walks in the woods, pigs to stroke and see and lots of little places for the kids to explore. My two girls had a fabulous time and had it not been for the lack of cleanliness and up keep of the site I would definitely recommend and return. I didn't expect things to be pristine but the shared spaces were quite grubby, the shared fridge freezer was really dirty- I wouldn't have left any food in there and the showers were in need of a good clean too. My overall experience of this site was a good one and we enjoyed our stay but I wouldnt return due to everything needing a good scrub!

Nearby attractions

The top of the campsite's track meets a bridleway which runs through countryside from Okehampton to Holsworthy. It makes for a pleasant walk or cycling route directly from the site. The castle in Okehampton is a worthy destination too. It's the largest castle remains in Devon (03703 331181), set on a wooded spur above the rushing River Okement. It was originally a stone keep, built after the Norman conquest, but was transformed into a residence for the Earl of Devon in the 1300s. There is a riverside picnic area and beautiful woodland walks nearby. From Okehampton, it's easy to dive into Dartmoor National Park for walking, mountain biking and more. Visit Lydford Gorge (01822 820320), the deepest gorge in the South West with a spectacular 30m waterfall, or climb up the banks of impressive Meldon Reservoir. In the opposite direction it's an 35-minute drive to Bude and the beaches of the North Devon and Cornwall coast.

Food and drink

The campsite is at the end of a long, private track, so it's a bit of a shlep to find the nearest pub. It's just under 4 miles to the excellent Clovelly Inn (01837 871447) in Bratton Clovelly but most things can be covered in Okehampton, including a superb fish and chippie (Kempley's Catch; 01837 52503). There are also 3 supermarkets, a butchers, grocers and newsagents, amongst other independent stores.
