South Allington House
Kingsbridge, England
1 acre
Undiscovered camping on the South Devon coast in the civilised surroundings of a Georgian manor house
South Allington House may be slap bang in the middle of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Start and Prawle Points along a sweep of South Devon’s coastline, but the fact that you can camp in its grounds is a rather closely guarded secret – the owners don’t even mention it on their website. So don’t tell them we think their secretive site a bit of a camping oasis, with its facilities offering a cocoon to the least intrepid of campers, while its location in a beautiful valley surrounded by farmland will gently coax the toughest city nuts back to nature. You can treat yourself to a highly civilised cream tea with dollops of home-made jam at the Georgian manor house while the kids mooch off in search of woodland wildlife. Little ones are kept happy making friends with the grazing sheep, marvelling at frogs in the pond, and trying to keep up with ducklings as they wander around the manicured grounds.And if the weather goes pear-shaped you can always opt for a room in the manor house B&B or other self-catering options. Just be sure to book early during school holidays.
