How excellent is this? The outdoorsy accommodation at Exford Hostel lets guests indulge their fondness of canvas but have a little extra luxury too: campsite guests have access to all the facilities in the hostel including its comfy lounge, self-catering kitchen and dining room, washing machine and drying room. (And, as you'll presumably know everyone in your tent rather than being in with strangers in a dorm, you can feel free to kick them when they snore.)
The site part is all quite handsome (have a squint at the site pics), tucked away in the grounds of the hostel, which in turn is in the centre of Exford village – and it's all slap bang in the centre of Exmoor National Park. The scenic Somerset coast is about six miles away.
As it's Exmoor, there are of course many most excellent range of activities to try nearby: the Exford Hostel team can arrange horse riding, photography tuition, fly-fishing lessons, coasteering, Exmoor safaris and clay pigeon shooting if you let them know between booking and arrival what you might fancy.

Leave the M5 motorway at junction 25 (Taunton) and follow the A358 from Taunton towards Minehead for about 3 miles. Then turn left along the B3224. After about 10 miles you will come to Raleghs Cross (pub). Travel straight on and then turn right, following the B3224 (which changes direction here). Continue for around 6 miles until you reach Wheddon Cross. Go straight ahead at the crossroads, following the signs to Exford (around 5 miles). The site is located on the bridge by the river and signposted Exford Hostel.
The moorland villages of Dunster and Dulverton are a short drive away, along with the comely coastal villages of Lynton, Lynmouth and Porlock, and the smashingly spectacular scenery of Somerset's moorland, hills, woodland, wildlife, the north Devon and Somerset coastline, and the peaceful landscapes of Horner, Cloutsham Valley, Oare and Dunkery...
Both the South West Coast Path and the Coleridge way are close to hand for those who fancy splendidly scenic hikes, and eight circular walks start from the hostel. Many cycle routes are nearby.
The Exford Hostel team also recommends a picnic by the medieval bridge at Landacre, hiking among the wild goats of the Valley of the Rocks (Coleridge and Wordsworth waxed lyrical here, verse fact fans), or taking the 11-mile drive to the excellent watersports opps at Wimbleball Reservoir, all sorted by the competent South West Lakes Trust.
