The Secret Campsite Beech Estate
Located in East Sussex, this campsite offers glamping and regular camping. The area is set on the edge of a beautiful 600-acre woodland, with attractions, nearby towns and pubs perfect for a good trip for families or friends.
Chalky Downs is found in the rolling hills near Brighton. This means that not only is near Brighton, one of the UK’s most popular seaside towns, but also loads of awesome beaches. The campsite aims for a chilled atmosphere, so it’s car-free but with free parking available in the nearby farmhouse.
The Pig Place Campsite
This is a child-free campsite in Adderbury next to a set of awesome canals. This is for campers who don’t mind roughing it, with basic tents available, and a boar hole instead of typical showers and portable toilets. Perfect for groups who enjoy the simplicities of good honest camping.
Nestled in North Wales near top sites like Snowdonia. The camping area lies adjacent to a private beach and there’s a river nearby, perfect for bathing and fishing. Families and groups enjoy panoramic views of valleys, mountains and seascape.
This is located overlooking the sea on epic cliffs in St Davids, Pembrokeshire. The campsite welcomes all ready to bring the essentials. There’s a low-carbon eco-friendly dairy farm with award-winning food and a great little farmstall selling local produce and delicious croissants.
The Ceridwen Centre
This award-winning campsite is set in the stunning Teifi Valley, West Wales. The organisers have made this a very eco-friendly campsite with a focus on sustainability, peace and relaxation on their 40 acres. They cater to all sorts of needs with small cabins, eating area, restaurants, and a farm shop.
35 acres of great camping in the stunning Nene Valley. Visitors can either traditionally camp, camping pods and lodges. With so much space you can really make what you want of this site, with a short or long stay by water, by spacious grass or sheltered spots.
Located in Warwickshire this 50 acre area is great for people who love camping by water. Take a canoe, pedalo, swim or let the kids play in the Pirate’s water playground and mini golf course. There’s even local carp pools for some great fishing.
This is a boutique camping facility in the Peak District, just a mile from the quaint Hartington Village. Stay in one of the fully facilitated luxury teepees with all the nicest hikes of the Peak District at your feet. There are local caves to explore, Chatsworth House Estate, and incredible fine dining and events.
Cashel Camping in the Forest
This is an idyllic spot with the camping area on the edge of Loch Lomond. Not only do you have stunning still waters with far-off mountains but the Queen Elizabeth forests just behind you. If you’re by car there’s the Go Country Adventure Park just a 40 min drive away. This is a great day out with cliff diving, kayaking, archery and clay pigeon shooting.
A beautiful part of Scotland with camping and self-catered lodges. The farm has planted thousands of trees over the years adding to the nearby forest – all in line with their eco-friendly philosophy. It’s by Loch Sunart, which is a sea loch creating a beautiful array of marine life. A top choice if bio-diversity and natural splendour is what you’re after.
Found on the Northern Coast of Scotland, Sango Sands overlooks some incredible beaches. The site will have basic supplies and accommodations but perhaps best is the sheer sense of sublime isolation that this place offers. A great suggestion for those who want to feel at the edge of the world.
We hope you found this list helpful. Remember whether for groups or solo camping Sixt car hire is a great affordable option to take you and your gear all over the country.
