Wheeeee! Adventure sorts, you're sorted. Adventure Camping is a campsite right behind the Ultimate Adventure Centre near Bideford in Devon, where there's all manner of adrenalising activities to try – and all in the scenic surroundings of comely Devon countryside and hills with views of the Devon coast.
What's promised as 'the ultimate assault course' is laid on at the adventure centre, alongside other active options like coasteering, laser tag, body zorbing, mountain boarding, kayaking, a surf school, climbing wall, and high ropes, low ropes and a zipwire. Families, stag parties and hen dos are all welcome and the campsite is dog-friendly. Showers, loos and washing facilities are all available too.
In the evenings, stroll around the lake or sit around the barbecue or firepit to discuss/boast about your day's activities with other campers, then wake up to the spectacular views, have brekkie in the café, and get ready to do it all over again…

From the north via the M5, leave the M5 at Junction 27. Follow the A361 towards Barnstaple. Take the A39 towards Bideford. Look out for the brown Ultimate Adventure Centre signs on the A39 just outside Bideford.
From Cornwall, take the A39 past Bude towards Bideford. You will drive past Hartland and Clovelly. Look out for the brown Ultimate Adventure Centre signs on the A39 just outside Bideford.
The only bus which passes The Ultimate Adventure Centre is the 319 Stagecoach bus from Barnstaple town centre to Hartland. The nearest bus stop is outside the church in Abbotsham, which is approximately 2- 3 minutes' walk from the site. However, if you ask the driver nicely, they usually stop outside the car park to drop you off.
The nearest train station is Barnstaple, approximately 10 miles away. From here, a taxi will cost around £20, or you can hop on the 319 bus which stops outside of the train station (details above).
Adventure Camping is in the small village of Abbotsham, niftily placed for the best of Devon attractions and the nearby beaches of day trips to Croyde, Woolacombe, Westward Ho! and other Devon beaches.
Less than half an hour's drive will see you at Saunton Sands, the eminently suitable surfing beach, and Braunton Burrows, the eminently spectacular sand dune system that's the biggest in England. Botany and nature buffs will find over 400 species of vascular plants and several rare species here; take a guided walk for the easiest way to spot.
Closer to home, on the edge of the Taw Torridge Estuary and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Northam Burrows Country Park is a smaller but still very viewsome option for nature walks among its sand dunes, salt marsh and grassland. Access it from the beach at Westward Ho! and drop in at the visitor centre at the northern end of the beach, open to the public in summer.
Heavenly hikes on the South West Coast Path are just a mile away, and nearby Bideford has two of Devon's toppest attractions for kids and families, the Milky Way Adventure Park and The Big Sheep.
See also the fishing village of Clovelly along the coast to the south-west, a day out among the greenery of RHS Rosemoor, another among the waves of surfing spot Woolacombe, or a drive to Dartmoor for yet more outdoorsy activities: you're on an adventure camping trip after all…
