- Peaceful, adults-only site with spacious woodland pitches in Devon
- A 45-minute drive from the coast; Tintagel Castle one hour
- Firepits and barbecue grills, plus a café; showers and a launderette
As the owners of Hole Station Campsite are fond of saying: ‘You wanted privacy? Here it is.’ Their catchphrase is no gimmick, either, for this is a supremely secluded adults-only spot in rural Devon, halfway between Dartmoor (40 minutes’ drive) and the beaches of the Hartland Devon Heritage Coast (45 minutes).
The site is set in 23 acres of woodland, with each pitch getting just shy of an acre. Vehicles have no access to the woods, so you won’t hear car doors slamming at ungodly o’ clock. Instead, you can park next to the reception and use a wheelbarrow for loading and unloading. What’s more, there is a monitored 11pm quiet time. And there’ll be no inopportune barking, either, since dogs are not allowed. Can’t you just feel your shoulders unclenching at the thought of all that peace and quiet?
Staying in the woods, listening to the birds warbling away, is a tempting proposition, but there is also plenty you could do in the area, from fishing at Anglers Paradise (10 minutes) to surfing at Westward Ho! (45 minutes).
Each pitch has its own firepit and barbecue grill, and campfire kits (with firelighters, kindling and logs) are for sale at reception. When it comes to provisions, there is a farm shop a 10-minute drive away, plus several weekly markets in the vicinity. A café on site serves full English breakfasts and snacks, and the local pub is in the village of Highampton (25 minutes’ walk). In terms of amenities, the site has a toilet block and showers, plus a washing-up area and a launderette.

Wading birds and butterflies (plus roaming Exmoor ponies) inhabit the watery landscape at Meeth Quarry Nature Reserve (20 minutes). Take a leisurely stroll along the trails, or turn your walk into a hike by joining the long-distance Tarka Trail from here. Speaking of tarka and other otters, you might be able to spot these critters in Halsdon Nature Reserve (half an hour).
For a walk among fragrant blooms, head to RHS Garden Rosemoor (half an hour), where the so-called Hot Garden comes into a fiery riot of reds, yellows and oranges in the summer. There is also a collection of exotic plants, a cherry garden and orchards.
Pop into neighbouring Cornwall to visit Tintagel Castle (one hour), on a rugged island accessed via a hanging bridge. The atmospheric medieval ruins and spectacular surrounds are inextricably linked with the legend of King Arthur. Check out his life-size bronze statue, then wait for low tide to explore Merlin’s Cave.
