Our Favourite UK Campsites

You know by now that we’re always taking our vans off for adventures around the UK and have a fair few awesome spots up our sleeves. 

We also really love to hear about the places you venture to in your Cambees and we weren’t disappointed when we asked you to share your favourites with us. So if you’re looking for a little inspiration for your next road trip, here are some fantastic recommendations from Team Cambee and our wonderful little community. 

Caefai Campsite, Pembrokeshire

Caerfai Bay Campsite, Pembrokeshire

A super headland location with sea views for miles around, Louise loves the convenient location as well as the peace and tranquility at this Pembrokeshire gem.  Offering lots of flat pitches and hardstandings if that’s what you’re after, Caerfai farm looks like an ideal spot to explore the Welsh coastline and we can’t wait to get there! 

Seasoned camper Louise also loves Treloan Farm Campsite down in Cornwall. Open all year round and offering yet more panoramic sea views, we can see why she loves this particular site too! 

D’Oyleys Farm, Oxfordshire

Vanessa was quick to add D’Oyley’s Farm Campsite in Oxfordshire to our list.  A glorious, off grid spot, D’Oyley’s offers a wide range of camping options and your pitch fee includes a brazier for cooking and a bag of logs to rustle up some tasty treats but no electric hook ups: wild camping at it’s finest! With breakfast and BBQ hampers available to order and a whole host of activities from wild swimming to den building on offer, we can’t wait to get out and explore this new-to-us part of the country!

River Dart Country Park, Devon

Of course we’re biased but Stuart’s recommendation is another favourite of ours and right on our doorstep here in Devon. There’s heaps for the whole family to do at River Dart Country Park which makes it an awesome choice to keep everyone entertained and with over 200 pitches available there’s loads of space to enjoy.  Great facilities, super clean and with such easy access to Dartmoor National Park, it’s easy to see why it’s such a popular camping option. 

Highertown Farm Campsite, Cornwall

This National Trust run site near Looe in Cornwall was Gary’s top recommendation.  Another low key site, Highertown farm is dog friendly, offers electric hook ups during the winter months and is in a great location to explore Cornwall’s pretty coastline. 

Compost toilets, eco friendly showers and supporting the fantastic work of the National Trust, you’ll earn great brownie points for choosing this lovely spot to pitch up.   

Mount Folly Farm, Bigbury

Mount Folly Farm, Devon

Andrea recommended one of our favourite sites in Devon – Mount Folly Farm at Bigbury.  Another that’s nearby to us, Mount Folly is a relaxed, back to basics spot with the most spectacular sea views. It’s the perfect place to watch the sunset over the iconic Burgh Island and an amazing base from which to explore the South West Coast Path and the incredible beaches of the South Hams. Immerse yourself in nature, keep things super simple and soak up the stunning surroundings.

Wild Camping Loch Lomond

Or why not go wild? 

Lauren shared her brilliant looking wild camping set up at Loch Lomond with us.  If you fancy keeping things a little more off grid there are still a few limited spots you can simply park up and rest up.  There are restrictions on wild camping across the UK, especially at the moment, so make sure you do your research before you set off.  If you do manage to find a spot there is something undeniably wonderful about being totally in the wild and self sufficient.

And we couldn’t miss out some of Team Cambee’s recommendations: 

Sally Tripp’s Field, Devon 

One of Devon’s best kept secrets, Sally’s Field tops our Director Matt’s list of favourite spots – just park up and immerse yourself in the unbelievable views along the South Hams coastline.  There are no bells and whistles at the field but the location is unbeatable and excellent The Pigs Nose Inn is within walking distance too, a huge bonus.  Book your pitch by phone  on 01548 511229. 

Penhalt Farm, Cornwall

There’s a running theme of incredible sea views throughout these recommendations and Cambee Office Manager Joe’s top campsite is no different.  Penhalt Farm near Widemouth is a working farm boasting Atlantic sea views from pretty much anywhere onsite.  Joe loves this campsite as a base to explore yet another bit of Cornwall. 

Of course the rules are slightly different in 2020 so we’d recommend checking out the specific regulations of your chosen site or area.  Let us know if you try any of our community’s recommendations and get in touch if we’ve missed out any of your favourites so we can keep adding to our list! 

Happy camping!
