The 10 Best Campsites in the UK

The 10 Best Campsites in the UK

If you’re looking for some of the best campsites in the UK, you’ve come to the right place. The following 10 campsites can be found across England, Wales, and Scotland, and are all just waiting to be explored by you! They are all stunning too, so sit back, relax, and plan your next camping trip:

1. Troytown Campsite, St Agnes

There are some fantastic beaches here, and the campsite is in a truly amazing position. If you’re after pure peace and quiet, then this is the place to go. You probably won’t get any phone signal, but you’ll be able to catch up on your reading and get back to nature.

2. Pleasant Streams Farm, Cornwall

There’s not a lot to do here, but you can create a campfire with no bother. 10 minutes up the road, there are even animals like pigs and goats…and a pub if you fancy a drink!

3. The Secret Campsite, Barcombe

Here you have a beautiful backdrop of trees, after making your way over an ancient brick railway footbridge. The foliage is amazing, and you’ll feel as if you’re really staying in the wilderness.

4. Swattesfield, Thornham Magna

Only a few years old, this place is perfect for strolls in the sunshine. There’s even an outdoor pizza oven for your perusal, so you’re dinner is sorted for the duration of your stay!

5. Hooks House Farm, North Yorkshire

Relax as you watch the tide wash in and out over the shoreline, and enjoy being at one with the grass, sheep, cows, woods, hills, and moors.

6. Turner Hall Farm, Cumbria

Walkers and climbers come from all over to stay here. The location and overlooking views are great, and you can simply turn up and pitch a tent with ease. If you don’t fancy pitching a tent, you could always rent/buy a motorhome. However, you’ll want to take a look at http://motorhomeinsurance.org.uk first.

7. Newgale, Pembrokeshire

You could never get bored here, with the wonderful cliffs, beaches, and views; also a great place to stay if you want to try your hand at surfing or windsurfing.

8. Aberafon, Gwynedd

There are rock pools here to explore, as well as places for surfers to do their thing. Wild swimming is encouraged too!

9. Caolasnacon, Argyll

Staying here is so relaxing; you can enjoy the sound of the rippling water and gently chirping birds as you kick back and chill; you can even try canoeing if you feel up to it.

10. Cleadale, Inner Hebrides

This is a very scenic place to stay; even JRR Tolkien agrees! This place inspired ‘The Lord of the Rings’, so you can imagine that it’s a wonderful place to stay. There are a variety of long words to describe the views here, but I could be here all day. Simply go along and see for yourself!

Now you know the 10 best campsites in the UK you can start planning out the most amazing camping trips – have fun!
