A basic but pretty camping site located ¼ mile from Bantham Beach, close to Thurlestone and Bigbury and 4½ miles from the South Hams town of Kingsbridge. Higher Aunemouth Farm campsite offers affordable rustic camping for tents, camper vans or caravans within easy reach of this beautiful stretch of the South Hams coastline in South Devon.
There are four recycling toilets, commonly dubbed ‘long-drop’ loos. Don’t be put off! They are well designed and with just a scoop of sawdust thrown over, the waste matter gradually decomposes. As long as no non-biodegradable items go in, the loos are completely environmentally friendly.
No electricity we’re afraid, but there is a standpipe for water located near the entrance of the field and an outside cold shower which has a wicker fence surround for privacy
Recycling and rubbish
We try to be as green as possible at Higher Aunemouth and bins are provided near the entrance of the site for food scraps, paper, cardboard, plastic, tins and bottles. There is also a bin for general non-recyclable rubbish. If you could dispose of your waste in the bins provided, we’d be very grateful. Black bin rubbish is expensive to dispose of so the more we can recycle the better, as this helps keep camping costs down.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
