Campsites in Brixham for spectacular South Devon days

Whether you’re fond of fresh fish or are into admiring art, amble over to one of these campsites in Brixham. This South Devon town centred around a lively harbour is on a section of the English Riviera called the Seafood Coast – a nod to its famed market selling and auctioning off creatures caught from the sea.

And what about that aforementioned art? Well, that’s to be seen in the local galleries and at a corner on the Strand where creatives sit and work.

It’s not just about filling your belly or looking at pretty pictures while on a trip to this town, though. From meandering along the coast to bobbing about on boats, a stay at these campsites in Brixham allows access to all sorts of absorbing activities. 

Campsites in Brixham: from sea-view caravan parks to fab farm stays

So now you’ve decided on a hol in this South Devon settlement, where should you stay? Most Brixham campsites, as well as caravan parks and glampsites, are out of town but within driving distance. To be a short walk away – and have views of the centre and the English Channel from your pitch – pick a place high up near Berry Head.

You could also bed down in other nearby English Riviera settlements, like Paignton (15 minutes’ drive) and Torquay (20 minutes’ drive) with their family-friendly amenities, or swing by stunning Salcombe (an hour). Alternatively, settle in at a smallholding or farm site deep out in the countryside for lazy days in lush green surrounds. 

If you’re not the type of person who’s into parking themselves in a meadow for a weekend, book a glampsite around Brixham with posh accommodation. Some of the best of the bunch include ensuite pods, vintage-style shepherds’ huts and huge bell tents.

Holiday parks offer a happy medium – these spots tend to have pitches for tent-toting travellers and caravans for those who don’t want to cuddle up under canvas. They usually have top-notch facilities too, like saunas and steam rooms for folk who want to relax and miniature golf, kids’ clubs and adventure playgrounds for the younger humans in your holiday crew.

Fancy a weekend full of family-friendly activities? Look out for sites with zipwires and arts classes or outdoor pools for splashy sessions under the sun.

Things to do in Brixham – from eating to ambling – on your break

Sampling some seafood. That’s the number one activity to get on the go when camping in Brixton. Number two is tucking into a cream tea at a seaside coffee shop, restaurant or pub (you are in Devon, after all…).

Stuffed with fresh fish (and scones. Don’t forget the scones), work off the calories by wandering along the seaside waterside promenade and by the breakwater, passing the old lighthouse enroute. This is all part of the fab South West Coast Path and you can keep going to walk through woodland and across clifftops as well.

Amble up to Berry Head National Nature Reserve for views that will get you gawping; eagle-eyed sorts might be able to catch a glimpse of wildlife like bottlenose dolphins, grey seals, harbour porpoises and basking sharks in the sea too.

If it’s sunny while you’re holidaying or camping in Devon, saunter back towards town and unfurl your towel for a lie down on Breakwater beach. Dips are to be had in the sea and at the attractive art deco Shoalstone lido (or perhaps back at base in your Brixham campsite with an indoor swimming pool?).

For more of an intro to the town’s days of yore, get yourself to the Golden Hind, a replica of the Sir Frances Drake ship, in the Inner Harbour, then finish off your explores learning about the area’s maritime past at the Brixham Heritage Museum.

Get a glimpse of some very different Devon scenery by having a hol in Dartmoor National Park at a campsite around Okehampton.
