Feel well, feel free at Freshwell Camping close to the seaside town of Croyde in north Devon: this pretty place overlooks the sea and guests can pitch up anywhere they please in the main field overlooking the beach.
As you’ll know if you’ve ever been to Devon before, there’s enough to do around here to keep you busy for weeks. And as you’ll also know, this can lead to dithering as you decide on what best to see and do first… all sorted here, as the friendly Freshwell team are more than happy to share their expert tips and advice on local attractions (and are available 24/7 to assist with checking in or with questions about the site).
You won’t need any help finding the nearest sands though, as Croyde beach is a couple of minutes’ walk away. The site’s also within easy driving distance of days out at Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Saunton Sands and Baggy Point; inland adventures around Exmoor and the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and waterside days around the River Taw. Barnstaple is half an hour’s drive away.
Freshwell has a ‘limited but reliable’ set of facilities including showers and toilets checked and cleaned twice a day, a sink area to wash and clean utensils, free parking for vehicles, a wetsuit wash bin, some mobile phone charging and waste recycling bins.
Bars, pubs, cafés and restaurants are a 15-minute walk away; supermarkets are within 15 minutes’ drive.
