You can choose from five campsites on the island, two on St. Mary’s and one on St. Agnes, Bryher and St. Martin’s.

4. Cornwall

In case you’re missing the theme here – Cornwall certainly deserves its reputation as one of the UK’s most popular places to camp. The dramatic coastline, sandy beaches and cute seaside villages are a huge attraction, but there’s also wild inner moorlands that can’t be missed either. No trip down south would be complete without a visit to the Eden Project.

With almost 300 miles of coastline, Cornwall is naturally a water sports paradise and well-known as the surfing capital of the UK. Pretty much every water sport is on offer here – windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing, the list is endless. It’s a great place to go for some fun, whether you’re a seasoned surfer or just fancy one lesson! Festivals run throughout the summer or for a family-friendly day out, Newquay Zoo is one of the best around.


5. Devon

Devon has some of England’s best-kept beaches and an impressive coastline offering cream teas and scrumpy cider. Then, of course, there are two national parks, an endless number of delightful seaside villages, a perfect mild climate and friendly welcoming locals. What’s not to like? Book yourself a holiday to remember at one of the superb campsites in Devon.

From family days on some of the UK’s best beaches (Woolacombe is a regular award winner) to wild walks on the South West Coast Path and moorlands, there is plenty to keep all-comers amused while camping in Devon.
