One of the first things you will notice upon arrival at Hooks House Farm is that the campsite sits high on a hill away from Robin Hood’s Bay, so it offers spectacular views. Therefore, you will be able to relax on a grassy field and choose to look out to sea, along the neighbouring fields, woods, rolling hills or moors.
You can enjoy a relaxing holiday at this campsite but if you’re the adventurous type that’s seeking a challenge that it’s advised to consider the coast-to- coast walk that wil take you in the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and parts of the Lake District.

Location: Great Langdale, Ambleside, Cumbria LA22 9JZ
Telephone: 01539 437150
Nestled within the middle of an 800-acre farm, Baysbrown Farm is a relaxing campsite. It also lies underneath the rocks which make up Bowfell, Crinkle Crags and the Langdale Pikes — three sights which should already be making up your list of places to visit while here. What’s quirky about this campsite is that you don’t need to book a designated pitch, but instead you can choose a spot and inform the nearby farmhouse on your arrival.

The name gives a clue of its location – it’s based just off from the River Lee but is hidden within a collection of ash and birch trees.

After you’ve got used to the sleeping arrangements, you can also take part in a wide variety of events around the campsite. Why not take up one of the cookery classes which sees meals being prepared using local produce? Or enjoy some stargazing once the sun goes down.

The Secret Campsite


Season: March – October
Location: Brickyard Farm, Town Littleworth, Cooksbridge, Lewes, East Sussex, BN8 4TD
Telephone: 07730 525560
You really will be returning to a natural way of living when you visit The Secret Campsite. This is because this campsite is for tents only — no cars or pets allowed unfortunately — and is based on a stretch of land that was once occupied by rail tracks but has since seen countryside foliage reclaiming the land.
You’ll be met with a wild feel to camping when you arrive at The Secret Campsite as a result, though you’ll soon feel relaxed as you sit around a campfire pit in a scene that is surrounded by a beautiful collection of ancient oak and hornbeam trees. Just be sure to keep an eye out for a passing deer, as they are known to live close to the site.
Amenities:
Campfires permitted | Disabled facilities | Perfect for a romantic retreat
Size: Pitches for 15 tents, as well as a Tree Tent and the Gridshell facility.

Ninham Country Holidays


Open season: May - September (though ‘Willow Brook’ camping area is only open between July -
August).
Location: Ninham Farm, Shanklin, Isle of Wight

Telephone: 01983 864243
The fact that the Ninham Country Holidays campsite is situated within the ‘Garden Isle’ part of Isle of Wright — found to the south-east of the island — should instantly make this a place that you need to book a spot at. You have a decision to make upon arriving at this campsite though; do you choose to pitch up in the ‘Orchard’ fields with its ultra-modern eco-facilities and both solar and rainwater-harvesting tech, or select a spot on the ‘Willow Brook’ field with its more basic facilities but which are still very functional and well kept? Whichever option you go with, you’re guaranteed to make so many wonderful memories at this family-run and award-winning campsite.

Caravans & campervans permitted | Children’s playground on site | Disabled facilities | Dog friendly

Aberafon


Season: April - September
Location: Gyrn Goch, Caernarfon, Gwynedd LL54 5PN
Telephone: 01286 660295
You’d have a really good argument for stating that Aberafon is based at the most fascinating location of all the campsites on this list, as you will find a scenic, private sandy beach on one side of the site and the mountains of the Llyn Peninsula in the other direction. Are you a fan of extreme sports? Then you’ll also be pleased to hear that the surroundings of the Aberafon campsite is perfect for canoeing downstream and paragliding. The nearby Glas Fryn Park sports facility even accommodates wakeboarding lessons too!

Cleadale Campsite


Season March - October
Location: Cleadale Campsite, 13 Cleadale, Isle of Eigg, Scotland PH42 4RL
Telephone: 01687482480

What better way to start hyping up the Cleadale Campsite than to state that renowned author JRR Tolkien used to spend some of his holidays there! Inspiration for the fantasy landscapes that he created in such well-loved series as The Lord of the Rings can certainly be seen all around the site, from the imposing mountains of Rum that serves as a stunning backdrop, to its grassy vantage point that looks out towards the sea. Even the journey to reach the Isle of Eigg where the Cleadale Campsite is based may be filled with amazing sights, as it’s not uncommon for dolphins, minke whales and an orca to all be spotted during the ferry crossing.
Amenities:
Dog friendly | Wi-Fi available on site | Remote location
Size: Pitches for 10 tents.

Gimme Shelter

Environmentally friendly is a common theme throughout the Gimme Shelter campsite. You won’t find any showers or access to hot water at this site, while the toilets are of a sawdust-composting style.
Before you begin to think that this is a bit too I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here for you, take note that everything at this campsite — based in the meadows and hills, just a few miles away from the Forth Bridge — is self-built and sublimely improvised. Just wait until you’re feeling at your calmest around a campfire that is set amid rich woodland and playing host to fantastically designed hand- carved wooden furniture.
Amenities:
Campfires permitted | Woodland camping | Forests nearby
Size: No size given, as the site consists of a campsite and a holiday cottage.
