Time to take the family – and the family dog, should you have one – on a back-to-basics holiday in deepest Devon? Let’s raise a cheer for Maple Meadow Camping, a pretty-much-wild site set on a small family-run farm five minutes’ drive from the town of Modbury, its food shops, pubs and restaurants.
This may be a no-frills site, but it’s one with running water, a composting toilet and off-grid shower. What’s more, it’s right on the edge of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with far-reaching views over Dartmoor National Park and the South Hams. Enjoy those views from the picnic benches dotted about the camping field.
There are no marked pitches, so settle in the best spot for you. Some areas of the field are on a slight incline, but there are plenty of level areas to choose from. Once you’re all settled in, you can hire individual firepits, seasoned firewood and fire-lighting kits for a small fee.
Sunsets can be pretty special up on that camping field, and after dark on clear nights, watch the stars come out and glitter in the skies above. Huddle up around the communal firepit and keep warm to make the most of the experience.
Campers are welcome to meet the farm’s small flock of sheep and chickens on request – food for the sheep and fresh eggs for your breakfast are also available for sale.
Open from 01/08/2023 to 31/08/2023

When going to the beach heads up the to-do list, South Devon has plenty of options. If you prefer seclusion, Wonwell Beach (10 minutes’ drive) on the River Erne estuary, is often nigh-deserted, while Mothecombe Beach provides a crescent of sand and plenty of rock pools for kids to splash around in. For surfing and kayak rentals – and food trucks to stave off hunger attacks – Bantham Beach (both 20 minutes) is the place to be.
The spit of sand at Bigbury-on-Sea (15 minutes) promises safe swimming for families, as well as sea tractor trips to Burgh Island at low tide. Once there, pay a visit to the Pilchard Inn, a former smuggling pub, or take afternoon tea in the renowned art-deco Burgh Island Hotel.
To explore inland, Ivybridge (15 minutes) is the gateway to hiking routes and bike rides leading up to rocky tors in Dartmoor National Park. You can also visit the National Trust-owned Buckland Abbey (40 minutes), one-time residence of Sir Francis Drake and now home of formal Tudor-era gardens, a tithe barn, café and souvenir shops.
