Do you like hols where you can ditch the car and wander merrily into the countryside and possibly also along a scenic canal? Have a stay at West Sussex's Donnington Wild Camping if so, for closeness to waterside hikes, city days, cracking local pubs and long lengths of local cycle and bike paths.
Set on a rural farm in spectacular surroundings, the site is a short stroll of 100 metres or so from the Chichester Canal, which you can wander or pedal along to get into Chichester a few miles hence or onto the beach at West Wittering, four miles away. About 50 minutes' walk in the other direction takes you to Chichester Marina in the city's handsome harbour, for bites to eat in the restaurant or taking a bike along the 18-kilometre Salterns Way.
Donnington is a wild camping site, with well-spaced pitches marked out in circles among fields of long grass. It allows campfires (in hired firepits only, please) and has toilets and washing-up facilities.
Tasty food is dished up at the local pub about 15 minutes' walk away (have their roast if you're around on a Sunday); if you'd rather cook up a storm on the campfire, the local village with supermarket is within easy walking distance, and if you do want to take the car, more supermarkets (along with shops and pubs) are within five minutes.
