Best campsites for the North Devon AONB

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

Spread across 66 square miles of some of England’s most attractive and important coastline,  the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty features dramatic cliffs, tumbling waterfalls, secret coves, sandy dunes and wooded valleys. Each habitat represents shelter and an environment where different species can find refuge, as well as providing geological and cultural interest for visitors.

There are countless villages and little ports to visit, including Clovelly with its pirate history, historic Bideford and Woolacombe with its magnificent beach. The enormous sweep of Barnstaple Bay and the sands of Westward Ho! and Braunton Burrows are in stark contrast to the jagged cliffs that face resolutely out to the Atlantic at Hartland Point. Further variety can be found in the cliff-top grasslands, many incorporating Sites of Special Scientific Interest and harbouring rare species like marsh orchids.

Walkers can enjoy the Hartland Easy Access Trail or the Combe Martin Cultural Trail, while the Tarka Trail is popular with both cyclists and walkers.
