The Best Campsites in the South West of England

South West England has been a favourite destination for campers for decades and it’s not hard to figure out why. The idyllic coast and countryside of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset offer plenty of perfect places to pitch a tent whether you fancy a site near the sea or a rural retreat. The best campsites in South West England are as varied as the destinations that co-exist there. Cornwall and Devon share a reputation for a coastline of great surf, sandy beaches and quaint fishing villages while inland they remain largely rural. It’s a similar story in Dorset: lots of beautiful countryside along with the world-famous and largely unspoilt Jurassic Coast. Dorset’s neighbour to the north, Somerset, has its own wealth of beaches and seaside resorts and is known for its orchards, farming community and the famous caves at Cheddar. All this along with its two national parks, Dartmoor and Exmoor, and the longest national walking trail mean South West England is an incredible place to enjoy the great outdoors. Add in the usually warmer weather of the south and it’s no wonder that so many people choose to spend holidays in South West England camping and glamping. It’s simply the best way to immerse yourself in the beautiful scenery. There are lots of fantastic farm-based camping and glamping sites among the orchards, meadows and farmers’ fields of the south west as well as plenty of places to pitch up close to the coast or in sight of the sea. The Cool Camping team have given the thumbs-up to some of the very best campsites in South West England for this collection.

Camping in South West England

South West England has long been a magnet for campers. Fistral Beach and other surf spots in the south west attract surf dudes in campervans; the almost-annual Glastonbury Festival attracts music-lovers with tents strapped to their backs and the wealth of farms and seaside sites attract family campers in the school holidays. As a result, there are hundreds of traditional back-to-basics campsites in the region. It can be hard to know where to choose but our collection gives you a headstart as we’ve selected only places that offer something special. We tend to steer clear of big holiday parks and you’ll find most Cool Camping sites are independently-run and smaller in scale. We have a soft spot for tent-pitch camping: it’s great value, just about the most eco-friendly way you can go on holiday and, of course, it’s amazing fun too. In South West England you’ll be able to choose from beachside retreats, farmers’ fields and woodland pitches. There are campsites where there are top-notch facilities, electric hook-up and activities to join in with and campsites where there’s simply a great location with basic facilities which are part of the charm.
