We are going to go camping tomorrow for one night.
We want a basic site, you know a farmers field with a toilet block and showers, and running water. That'll do. What we want though is a good location.
We have been to a fantastic one near Bedruthan Steps in Cornwall, right on the cliff edge and walking distance from the beach. Ideally we would like something similar, near a beach, or a river or lake, with walking access ideally, and maybe access with a canoe? And plenty of space for DD to run around/put up our enormous hippy tent. Devon or Cornwall, but around an hour drive from plymouth. Unless it is amazing then we will go a bit further.
We are by nature rustic campers, not interested in pools and shops, so doubt we will find what we want online.
Word of mouth recommendations would be appreciated
We stayed [http://www.harfordbridge.co.uk/ here]] a couple of years ago - looking at the website it seems a bit less basic than it was, but the location is wonderful, and it's about an hour (maybe less?) from Plymouth. Really nice people running it as well - they kept apologising for the rain!
oh paddling is good,we have a kayak and a canadian (well our friends have the canadian, but are hopfully coming too).
I sort of like not having shops near though. Does that sound daft? I like actually feeling like we are remote. A bit close to nature. I am sure when DD and the new baby are older they will require more entertainment than gathering wood for a fire, but while they have no choice...
We're going here in a couple of weeks. Not been before but i'm getting excited looking at the pics. We've booked a pre erected tent with all the equipment, as our current one is way too small, and need to test how dd is with camping before investing!
