South Devon Wild Camping: The camping field

General

  • Pop-up wild camping site in the South Hams countryside with sea views
  • A 10-minute drive to Mothecombe beach and 25 minutes to Dartmoor
  • Coast path, bars, restaurants and ice cream parlour nearby

Which to dig into first? Tasty seafood and tapas or silky sands? Bed down at the pop-up South Devon Wild Camping in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, founded by like-minded explorers who will help divulge the favourite local’s haunts in South Hams. With Mothecombe beach 10 minutes’ drive away and views of the waves from the site, it’s easy to taste the salt on the air from these grassy clifftop pitches, but you’ll also find views of Dartmoor in the distance, too (25 minutes' drive if you want to take a closer look at the moors).

Busy days may well be packed with paddleboarding, surfing and kayaking along the coast, or cycling or hiking on land, with coastal grooves a fan favourite not just for countryside fans but birds too. At the end of the day, return to the family-friendly wild camping with portaloos. Dogs and barbecues are permitted, so no one has to miss out on the sea views.

Follow the footpath to Mothecombe, where a 45-minute walk gets you to a choice of two beaches and food options including seriously cool seafood and tapas, barbecues and flavoursome cocktails. The local ice cream parlour is a great antidote for any sweet tooth, with a laidback garden to bask in the sea views.

There’s more locally sourced food in the shops and pubs in the local villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo (both ten minutes’ drive), with riverside picks overlooking the River Yealm. For more choice, you can always head into Plymouth (half an hour away) for a slice of the city.
