Seek space at Secret Spot Camping, a site on open north Devon farmland 15 minutes’ walk from the pubs and shops of Braunton and five minutes’ drive from Saunton Sands beach.
Pitches here form part of the grounds of a family home – guests are welcome to wander about and admire the gardens (a lot of effort goes into tending them, as you’ll see from the pics). Clubs and groups are welcome but be aware that the vibe here is very much more peaceful than party.
Facilities on site are centred around the convivial campers’ shelter, a hub full of handy things including a kitchen (with a fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster), comfy sofas, sockets for charging gadgets, and a wifi connection. If it’s a fine day, there’s also plenty of outdoor seating scattered around the place and a communal firepit area for campfire chats. Barbecues are welcome too as long as they’re kept on the bricks provided.
With several famed beaches nearby (not just Saunton Sands but also Croyde 10 minutes’ drive and Putsborough within 15 minutes) this is a tiptop location for surfers as well as those who want to chill; the site owners also manage a surf shop in Croyde, so folk who don’t have their own kit might want to hire or buy down there (with a little discount to aid proceedings).

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Sorry you had trouble finding us - lt should have been easy with the 2 emails that both Pltchup.com and l send out. We are also on Google Maps and have a Facebook page showing our location.
When you rang me l went out to find you but you would not give me the slightest indication as to where you were! After driving all over l returned to find you pitching your tent.
We deliberately have no signs up as we don't want to be found except by people who have pre-booked. Sorry this didn't run smoothly for you. We have now requested changes to the automatic booking response sent out by Pitch Up. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Turn off the main Saunton Road into Moor Lane. Continue on Moor Lane past the lodges and farm stall until you drive around the sharp right-hand bend. Directly after the bend, turn left up the site's driveway by the dark blue postbox and drive up to the bungalow.
