Camping South Coast or South West
Well.. caravan really, but I didn’t want to put that in the thread title 🙂
We’ve been to West Wales the last few times out, so fancy a change as in the title. My wife seemed interested in Cornwall but I reckon it’d be shockingly busy over the BH weekend. I was thinking maybe Ilfracombe or Bude or something as possibly quieter.
Other option is Bridport or Lyme Regis area.
Campsite recommendations welcome – prefer the small field with a tap variety.Posted 3 years agodave_rudabarMember
There is this one South of Chard: http://www.alpinegrovetouringpark.com/ if you want woodland camping.
Freshwater Beach http://www.freshwaterbeach.co.uk/ near Burton Bradstock (just east of West Bay) – has its own beach, and is near the excellent Hive Beach beachside cafe
Or Graston Copse http://www.coolcamping.co.uk/campsites/uk/england/west-country/dorset/563-graston-copse – also near Burton B.
I’m not familiar with ones nearer Lyme, but there are a few good ones IIRC.Posted 3 years agostumpy01Member
We stayed in Wooda Farm Park just outside Bude a few years ago. It’s quite a big site, not really a ‘tap in a field’ type place, but nice anyway.
My memory of camping in Cornwall was spoiled somewhat by the constant rain that we had for the duration of our stay….. 😆Posted 3 years ago
Should go back sometime and try it again.brassneckSubscriber

There’s a decent site in Uplyme but I’m not sure it takes caravans. Bus or walk into Lyme is a nice day out, fossil hunting on the beach.
There is also a C&CC site if you’re a member? Thats more tap in a field.
Or further afield to Mount Folly Farm above Bigbury on Sea – lovely beach when the tides out.Posted 3 years agonickjbSubscriber
We stayed at Golden Cap near Lyme in Seatown. Its not a tiny field but the layout means you can find a quiet corner if you are lucky. Its tucked down a lane and right by the beach so has a nice out-the-way feel. Good walking and nice pub very close by.
Mount Folly Farm
One of my favourite tap-in-a-field camp sites. Nice views from the hilltop but that does make for a bit of a hike to the beach. That’s South Hams so not on your list but a nice place to be. Better beach than the Lyme area and not as far as Cornwall so a good compromisePosted 3 years agodave_rudabarMember
Golden Cap at Seatown is ok, but does have the feeling of being bigger/more claustrophobic than it is IMO. Plus the pub is trying too hard on the food now & may lose repeat casual visitors.Posted 3 years ago
The others I mentioned aren’t that big – been to much worse in Devon & Cornwall over the years!
