Summer is the best time to enjoy the charming caravan parks and campgrounds found all over England. Camping is a fun and affordable way to experience the world-famous and inimitable English countryside. England has many renowned and popular campgrounds; the following are our top picks for camping in England.
Housedean Farm, East Sussex
The Housedean Farm is a renowned 900-acre campground that is situated in Brighton Road, Lewes. Situated in rural England's prettiest scenery, this is certainly a walker’s country dream. One can just get lost in the beautiful and irresistible scenery of South Downs Way and start exploring. Spend an exhilarating (and tiring day) of exploring the river valleys, winding trails, and Saxon churches.
Hooks House Farm, North Yorkshire
Robin Hood’s Bay, situated near Whitby, is a place steeped in intrigue and romance. According to legend, the infamous green-clad champion of Sherwood Forest fought French pirates at Bay Town and returned their pilfered loot to the local villagers. But there’s no solid proof that the area has any connection to Robin Hood. Regardless, the bay's sweeping seaside views are beautiful. Stay at the family-run and friendly campground of Hooks House Farm, located high above the town. One cannot hope for a more beautiful and marvelous vantage point as you explore North York Moors National Park.
Ocean Pitch, Devon
The Ocean Pitch in Croyde, Devon, is a campsite that offers a direct view of the beach. One can always keep a watch on surf and race down to the water just as the waves start breaking. For those, who are not into surfing can just visit this beautiful campground, and experience the serene beauty of this camping site. One can wake up and enjoy the view of the ocean before cooking up some breakfast sausages.
Pleasant Streams Farm, Cornwall
Pleasant Streams Farm near Sticker, St. Austell, is a perfect field for camping and pitching a tent. There is a nearby lake which attracts wildlife and has a rowing boat for a pleasant afternoon afloat. In addition to that, there is also a summerhouse with games and books for the rainy days. One can also explore the wonderful coast around Charlestown and Gorran Haven while staying there and explore rural Cornwall.
The Meadows are found at the center of Pentewan Valley where the river of St. Austell joins the Atlantic Ocean. This site is a traditional Cornish campground. This campsite offers stunning seascapes and unmatched access to Pentewan Trail. You can even rent two luxury vintage caravans for a chic, romantic getaway. The campground emphasizes the local beauty, trail, and having a more relaxed and comfortable experience. That means it’s an adults-only campground, while families should check out the nearby Pentewan Sands holiday park.
The English countryside is known around the world for its natural beauty, walking trails, and contemplative energy. Make the most of your experience at one of these awesome campsites and escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
