Secret Spot Camping

UK England South West England Devon Braunton

Moor Lane Nursery, Saunton Rd, Braunton EX33 1HG

Finding this exclusive Devon spot is like making it on to the best VIP guest list in town

Never has there been a campsite more aptly named. It took this reviewer 20 minutes and two phone calls to find the place, despite the satnav indicating that I was around 200 metres away. Persevere, though, and the determined camper is rewarded with a brilliant little piece of England to call their own. Our tip is to look out for the sign for Moor Lane Nursery as, rather sweetly, the day-to-day business here is growing and selling gorgeous plants.

What this means is that the whole place is beautifully designed, with stunning plants at every turn. A stroll through the site is a revelation, revealing nooks and crannies peppered with comfy chairs, a barbecue, picnic tables and a wishing well along with essential amenities such as a fridge-freezer, microwave, kettle and so on. Its proximity to Croyde Beach means that it’s a favoured hangout of the surf crowd but, thanks to its tranquil, private vibe, it attracts the more chilled variety of surfer. There’s unspoilt countryside in every direction and you’ll share your stay with butterflies, owls, egrets, bats and dragonflies (plus the lovely Steve and family – this is their home and they'll be on hand to accommodate in any way). Back to nature, then, but with the bonus of the lively village of Croyde just down the road.

Hidden gem of a hideaway campsite.

Very friendly and helpful hosts, who did a great job at keeping on top of cleanliness and making sure facilities were up to scratch. Really handy having fridges and simple pleasures like a toaster, kettle and microwave. Great location, just tucked away enough, but convenient for local beach and shops etc. We definitely would like to return. I would go 5*, but always worth having something to aim for! Thanks again for a great break Secret Spot (Steve and Jo)

Lovley and peaceful

Myself and my two teenagers have just spent little over a week at Secret Spot. It’s was the perfect campsite for us and we enjoyed it very much. Loved the location so close to the Burrows and Saunton Beach. Will definitely be back. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Nice campground in very good location

Friendly owner who keeps the facilities clean enough. The fridge needs a good cleanup. There are a two (!) electricity points in the kitchen and some old sofa’s to chill on. Good wifi. Nice beaches down the road (you need a car) and good restaurants in Braunton. From the campside you can hike to the dunes.

Thanks for your review. The fridge is checked and cleaned regularly however this did become difficult during the recent heatwave (2018) with the sudden influx of extra campers, especially given the amount of food left behind. We are considering adding a 3rd fridge for next summer.  Not many campsites offer this facility at all. Secure device charging is available in reception area had asked!  Saunton Beach access is 1.7 miles (6 mins by car or 33 mins on foot) according to Google Maps. Thx.

Sweet relaxing

This is a great campsite, on the day we arrived the owner said it was his busiest weekend, but it was still a fully relaxed experience. Showers were excellent after a day on the beach, the campers shed was bliss and everyone was chilled.

Gardens

Nice campsite , beautiful setting and gardens to walk thru, clean showers but toilets could be better. Owner very friendly and gave a lot of info. On this website is tagged as " short walk to the beach" , but bear in mind that short walk is about 2.5 miles.

Thanks for you review. We are always totally transparent about the distance to the beach..  To be clear.. according to Google Maps- Saunton Beach is 1.8 miles, 6 mins drive or 33 mins walk. We do advise people that they are better off driving and saving their energy for the beach itself. As this is our own home we live on site so the toilets/showers are cleaned multiple times a day. We are generally on hand to rectify any issue once we are made aware of it! Regards Steve

Gorgeous place

Loved my five nights staying here. Really friendly and helpful owners. Clean and tidy facilities. The most beautiful garden to eat dinner in. Plug sockets and WiFi available. I stayed here without a car and it is to access the local beaches and town. Will be going back!

Laid back, quiet gem!

What a great little campsite - hot showers, very clean, beautiful gardens to sit in, with hammock, fire pit, pond. The owners were very relaxed and helpful. Quiet location within easy reach of shops/restaurants in Braunton and the beach/surf! Wish I could have stayed longer.
