If you quite fancy the idea of wild camping but aren’t sure you’ll take to the idea of abandoning such things as toilets, there's a great compromise to be had in the form of Camp Wild at Burrow Hill Farm.
This secluded site on a Devon hillside has all the atmosphere of a proper wild camping location: it’s completely off grid (so you’ll need to bring torches), with just a couple of large pitches and well away from any roads. You can pick your own camping spot here, but as the pitches are not accessible by car your kit will be transported for you.
After that, you’re left to your own devices to forage for wood, build your campfire, or explore the footpaths that can be accessed from the farm. You’ll be sharing your space with lots of wildlife, so sit or stroll quietly and you may spot badgers and deer in the field or buzzards, ravens and swallows in the sky overhead. And even if you’re not lucky on that front, there’s many a pretty thing to see among the wildflowers, the hedgerows and the woodlands.
Later on, the dark skies lend themselves well to nights of stargazing, and you may see the bats at play in the woods or hear the odd owl hooting.
And those amenities? There’s a portable toilet, a solar shower tent and a camping kitchen unit for each pitch, and you can get water from a spring (piped from the main house supply). There's also an electric vehicle charging point available for use on a metered basis.
All the bits you need for your barbecue or campfire can be sourced at the supermarket in Hemyock, a mile away along the footpath or lane (it’s also got a pub if you’d rather have your food cooked for you…)

Burrow Hill Farm is within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are plenty of ways to explore some of the scenery that earned the area its title. Set out straight from your tent to get going on local footpaths, perhaps to the Wellington monument or up to Culmstock Beacon for some smashing views.
For walks further afield, head to Exmoor National Park (45 minutes’ drive) or head shore-wards to the South West Coast Path. Burrow Hill is fairly central in Devon so it’s about an hour’s drive to the north coast or 45 minutes south to the fossil-filled Jurassic Coast.
Time for a bit of a sit down? Head to the beach in Lyme Regis or Sidmouth or take a ride on the tramway in Seaton (all 40 minutes). Devon Railway Centre and Knightshayes Court (both 35 minutes) are also good ideas for days out nearby, as is a wander around Exeter (40 minutes).
