Best campsites for the East Devon AONB

Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

185 million years ago, the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty was at the bottom of the sea. Today its 268 square kilometres represent a diverse collection of habitats, with plentiful wildlife and a vibrant cultural heritage that still thrives on traditional practices. This is a captivating landscape of secretive wooded valleys, windswept heath, rolling hills and tranquil rivers.

The AONB stretches from Exmouth in the west to Sidmouth in the south and borders Honiton and Lyme Regis. Designated an AONB in 1963, it’s popular with walkers, especially for the South West Coast Path.

The Jurassic Coast is a notable highlight, an important World Heritage Site, where fossils can be found without too much trouble as you wander along the beach. The East Devon Way is a good place to start when exploring the hinterland, with myriad walking and cycling trails that allow the visitor to weave through the picturesque villages and rural byways that might otherwise be missed.
