Wheeeee! Adventure sorts, you're sorted. Adventure Camping is a site right behind the Ultimate Adventure Centre near Bideford in Devon, where there's all manner of adrenalised activities to try – and all in the scenic surroundings of comely Devon countryside and hills with views of the Devon coast.
What's promised as 'the ultimate assault course' is laid on at the adventure centre, alongside other active options like coasteering, laser tag, mountain boarding, kayaking, a surf school, climbing wall, and high ropes, low ropes and a zipwire. Kids are welcome to join in and the site is dog friendly too. Showers, toilets and washing facilities are all available to get everyone clean when the day is done.
In the evenings, stroll around the lake or sit around the barbecue or firepit to discuss/boast about your day's activities with other campers, then wake up to the spectacular views, have brekkie in the café, and get ready to do it all over again…

Top day full of adventure
From the manager...
Thank you for your comments, I'm sorry your experience was what you were expecting.
We don't have designated camping pitches. As an outdoor adventure centre we have several areas for camping but yes, it is a little different to a traditional campsite with designated areas.
Our Ultimate Day Out has been incredibly busy this season and we do advise all customers to book in advance as it sells out quickly and we cannot accept bookings on the day.
I apologise for the comments you received from one particular member of staff, I will investigate that personally. I will pass on your kind comments to Lewis.

The only bus which passes The Ultimate Adventure Centre is the 319 Stagecoach bus from Barnstaple town centre to Hartland. The nearest bus stop is outside the church in Abbotsham, which is approximately 2- 3 minutes' walk from the site. However, if you ask the driver nicely, they usually stop outside the car park to drop you off.
The nearest train station is Barnstaple, approximately 10 miles away. From here, a taxi will cost around £20, or you can take the 319 bus which stops outside of the train station (details above).
Adventure Camping is in the small village of Abbotsham, niftily placed for the best of Devon attractions and the nearby beaches of day trips to Croyde, Woolacombe, Westward Ho! and other Devon beaches.
Less than half an hour's drive will see you at Saunton Sands, the eminently suitable surfing beach, and Braunton Burrows, the eminently spectacular sand dune system that's the biggest in England. Botany and nature buffs will find over 400 species of vascular plants and several rare species here; take a guided walk for the easiest way to spot.
Closer to home, on the edge of the Taw Torridge Estuary and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Northam Burrows Country Park is a smaller but still very viewsome option for nature walks among its sand dunes, salt marsh and grassland. Access it from the beach at Westward Ho! and drop in at the visitor centre at the northern end of the beach, open to the public in summer.
Heavenly hikes on the South West Coast Path are just a mile away, and nearby Bideford has two of Devon's toppest attractions for kids and families, the Milky Way Adventure Park and The Big Sheep.
See also the fishing village of Clovelly along the coast to the south west, a day out among the greenery of RHS Rosemoor, another among the waves of surfing spot Woolacombe, or a drive to Dartmoor for yet more outdoorsy activities: you're on an adventure, after all…
