The Best Campsites and Holiday Parks in South West England

Here’s one for the fact fans: there are more campsites and holiday parks in south-west England than anywhere else in the nation. But why do so many folk flock all the way down to the bottom of the UK, you ask? Reasons vary, but the stunning nature, brill beaches and friendly people might have something to do with it… 

Cornwall alone has 400 miles’ worth of coastline, and there are spectacular stretches of sand in Devon and Dorset too. Somerset is the birthplace of the impressive Roman city of Bath, while Wiltshire plays host to the famed neolithic monument of Stonehenge.

Not got months and months to spare for exploration (sigh)? Then bite the bullet and pick just one county. Here’s a look at all the different parts of the region – and the sort of holiday parks and campsites dotted across them – to help you make a worthy choice for your next trip.

Your guide to the hotspots for camping in the South West

South west is best, as the saying (sort of) goes, and holidaymakers who hotfoot it to this part of the UK tend to agree. Especially those who like to roam: the whole area is a haven for hikers as the seasides of Somerset, Devon, Cornwall and Dorset are flanked by the 630-mile South West Coast Path running from Minehead to Poole Harbour. Amble along the entire trail – it takes approximately 30 days to complete if you’re a speedy stroller – or select a small section for a couple of hours’ worth of wandering alongside rugged cliffs, vast estuaries and windswept beaches.

The protected areas of Exmoor, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor (in Devon and Cornwall) also have trails to totter along – with tors aplenty to scale – if you prefer jaunts in the countryside, while Wiltshire is top for pottering on public trails through lush downland and vast valleys.

Wondering whether you can fit in some watersports on your trip? Skedaddle straight to sites near surf and sailing schools in Cornwall (think Newquay, Fowey and Sennen) or paddleboard around the calm coves of South Devon (East Prawle is a prime pick).

Fancy some fossil-hunting? Nab yourself a nook at a south west England campsite close to Dorset’s Jurassic Coast (Lulworth Cove is one of the most scenic spots); if you’re more of a city slicker, stay in Somerset and have a gander at the graffiti in buzzing Bristol, the home of world-renowned street artist Banksy.

Which sort of campsites in the South West of England are available?

Set aside a few hours when seeking a holiday park or campsite in the south-west of England: you’re bound to lose track of time while investigating all the fab parks in this region. The selection includes camps in Cornwall, digs in Devon and wigwams in Wiltshire to name but a few… 

If you’re after something specific – like a dog-friendly campsite in the south west – move your mouse over to the filters on the left-hand side of the page and have a look for what you want. Travelling with a crew? Narrow it down to campsites in the south west that allow groups (great for bigger families or special birthday celebrations).

If a serene break is more your bag, go for a peaceful park or choose a site in a remote location.

Fab facilities at sites in the south west of England

If you’re attempting to tour all of the south west (a worthy challenge), hone in on holiday parks that have all the essentials: many in the selection include laundries, communal kitchens, waste disposal and electric hook-ups to make life easier for long-term nomads.

On the flipside, folk who are away a shorter while might want to splash out on staying at a site with swisher places to stay (perhaps a bell tent set up ready for your arrival, or a cosy little shepherd’s hut) and smart amenities from fine-dining restaurants to state-of-the-art gyms. Other fancy facilities to keep an eye out for include wellness areas with heated swimming pools and saunas, along with sports amenities like miniature golf courses and archery for guests who can’t keep still.

Psyched about cycling but don’t fancy lugging your bike with you? Plenty of parks in the south west have bike rental either on site or nearby, and are close to cracking trails for pedal-powering your way around.

The top sightseeing spots in the south west

If you’re keen on seeing Stonehenge, wander to Wiltshire for the mysterious collection of prehistoric standing stones (or avoid the crowds and seek out some of the other lesser-known circles sprinkled around the south west, like at Avebury).

For slightly newer structures, the 13th-century Salisbury Cathedral is worth a look for its Early English-style architecture; if you’d like to visit a place that’s far more recent, the Eden Project’s futuristic-looking biodomes are brimming with botanicals from across the world.

The south west is also scattered with stately homes and gorgeous gardens: the Elizabethan Longleat House, the subtropical Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Sudeley Castle fortress are a handful to add to your bucket list.

To strut around natural sites (with some cheese-tasting thrown in for good measure…), make a beeline for the Somerset village of Cheddar and invest in goodies of the dairy variety in the shops to haul to the gorge for lunch in the open air; the 45,000-year-old Wookey Hole cave in this Mendip Hills location is also worth poking around, especially if the kids are with you.
