Great North Devon Campsite


We have just spent four nights camping at the fantastic Little Meadow campsite on the north coast of Devon between Ilfracombe and Coombe Martin.  The 50 tent pitches ALL overlook the cliffs, a vast expanse of sea and dramatically sloping green Devonshire hills.  It is absolutely beautiful in the sunshine and the view looks partly like this:


The site is quiet, uncommercial, friendly and eco!  Small children's play area, shop selling organic produce and table tennis table are the only recreational facilities, but that's all you need with these views - you can just sit outside your tent and gaze......

It's in the Cool Camping book and also featured in the Torygraph Top 25 UK Campsites, but I'm certainly not a Torygraph reader, so I won't link to that one.


You can access the South West Coastal Path from the campsite and you can also walk down to the tiny Watermouth harbour where my daughter took a great photo of this fishing boat (wow = colours):

thanks, Marie. You must visit again soon! Camping is hard work though - love it, but it's exhausting.

Donk - are you local, or a visitor? Little Meadow is a bit of a find - a special place.
