As far as popularity as a tourist destination is concerned, very few counties can rival that of Devon. Whether it’s staying in hotels, seaside B&Bs or, most alluring of all, camping sites, there’s so much to do in this friendly, tranquil part of the south west. If you’re looking for camping sites, Devon has plenty of places worth visiting, whether as a family, with friends or if you’re going as a couple.
One of the best campsites in Devon for campers who love their fair share of outdoor activities is the Roadford Lake Campsite near Lifton. Visitors can take part in canoeing, surfing and other watersports, as well as drier pursuits such as climbing and archery. On site, there’s a play area for the kids, all the usual amenities such as a laundrette, shower block and toiler block, and it’s fully accessible for wheelchair users.
The award-winning Langstone Manor Holiday Park near the charming market town of Tavistock is a must for people who want their camping experience to be comfortable. Langstone Manor was awarded a Silver David Bellamy Conversation Award, and its eco credentials alone make it worth visiting. The site has numerous amenities to its name, including the Langstone Bar, where hot food is served regularly.
Equally well-equipped is the Hedley Wood Caravan & Camping Park in Holsworthy. Set in a rural idyll, this site is everything to everyone. It has a bar, café, shop, and takeaway, as well as a games room for the kids and nearby facilities for fishing, swimming and even surfing. It’s even dog-friendly, and doesn’t charge extra for them to come along with you.
