- Back to basics woodland site in scenic north Devon
- In the Lee valley, a 15-minute walk from the coast
- Wildlife haven over 10 acres: look out for deer, foxes and badgers
Craving some good old-fashioned camping, with nothing but a bit of canvas over your head, an open fire to cook on and the sounds of wildlife to keep you company? Pick up your pack and head to Yomer Wood Camping, a back to basics site a couple of minutes’ drive (10 minutes’ walk) from the scenic coastal village of Lee in north Devon.
Don’t worry about soothing stays being interrupted by other guests either: there are 10 acres here, and running into the neighbours is far less likely than encountering a badger, fox or deer... When (if?) you feel the need to return to the outside world, the site’s about 15 minutes’ walk from the Devon coast, which is handy for the 630-mile South West Coast Path and the sheltered cove at Lee Bay, and is in the Lee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. (Time visits just right to find out why the locals call it Fuschia valley…)
Yomer Wood is no-frills at its finest: there’s no electricity and certainly no wifi, so you can stay nicely sheltered from social media or other digital distractions. Streams and a pond are to hand for your morning ablutions; there's a compost toilet for your calls of nature, and a rainwater-supplied pot washing area is at your convenience for the scrubbing of saucepans.
And for the sizzling of sausages? Campfires are – but of course – fully approved of here.
Open from 04/07/2020 to 08/09/2020
This site has no on-site shower facilities.
No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Although there’s parking by the pub and the beach in Lee, there’s no parking next to the site so pack light – you’ll need to carry your tent with you.

If watersports and sands appeal, this is a top spot, as the site is 10 minutes’ drive from Woolacombe surfing beach and surfing schools, 20 minutes from Croyde and Putsborough, and 25 minutes from Saunton Sands. And if fingers and toes are crinkled beyond recognition and need some time to dry out? The Museum of British Surfing is 20 minutes from base.
Surfing isn’t the only coastal pursuit worth sampling hereabouts… the site is half an hour from Braunton Burrows, the largest sand dune system in the UK and the country’s first biosphere reserve. A handful of scenic coastal towns and villages are also within easy reach: make a trip to the nearest of these, Ilfracombe (10 minutes away), to explore the Victorian seaside town and harbour.
Finally, turn away from the ocean and make tracks inland for Exmoor National Park (20 minutes) and its 620 miles of footpaths and bridleways, its cycle paths and climbing routes, and its canoeing and kayaking. Prefer to spend some time among exotic wildlife? Exmoor Zoo is less than half an hour away.
