Camping and Touring in North Devon

As with the holiday parks, most of these sites have evolved from the original farmer's field camp sites of yesteryear. But unlike the dynamic holiday parks on the coast, many of these touring sites are still run by their original farming families. Here one's family can enjoy the simplicity of a traditional camping holiday in clean air, under a warm sun, in the rolling Devon hills and combes. A holiday of country walks and rockpool rambles, of fishing trips and bathing beaches, of country pubs and cream teas. And all at an affordable price.
