Being a fan of coastal camping, I thought I should share with you the beside the sea camping sites I find amazing. I’ll try my best to express what makes them stand out for me. I hope you get to like them too. However, you must know that these sites are not arranged in any particular order.
- Bryher campsite
Located at the Isles of Scilly, you will be blessed by the salty views of Tresco and Hangman Island. It is best to visit this campsite during the summer. You will enjoy the sandy beach at Green Bay and have great swims at a quieter cove situated at Rushy Bay. There, you can also enjoy facilities like the washing machines, tumble dryers, showers operated with coins, hairdryers, basins and lavatories.
- Treen farm campsite
This campsite is situated in Penzance, about three miles away from the Land’s End. This campsite is not far from some of the best beaches in Cornwall. Pitching your tent there will give you easy access to the isolated sands of Pedn Vounder. You can also make a 10-minute drive to Sennen where you can surf in Whitesands Bay. Many people say this is the best place to surf. There you will find some showers, washing up areas and lavatories.
- Trehenlliw farm
Located in Pembrokeshire, Wales, this campsite is a farmland of about 115 acres and is used in breeding sheep and cattle. It is shaped by the Penberi and Carnllidid mountains. This campsite has a lovely sandy beach and well-known surfing beach. You can take a boat to Ramsey Island from there for dolphin spotting, or travel a mile with the road to the Whitesands Bay. You can also access the little city of St. David to see its cathedral. At this campsite, you will have some shower blocks, washing up sinks and free hot water.
Southern and south-east England
- Grange Farm in the island of Wight
This farm is balanced on till cliffs right behind Brighstone’s sandy beach. This camping field is vast and spreads widely till the edge of the beach. The Ocean View which is adorable from the 100 yards' distance, and the unforgettable moments at the beach is more than enough to cover for it’s exposure to high winds. In this farm, you will see built and designed on-site camping pods. The necessary facilities to look out for there include hair dyers, slot operated washing machines, free hot showers, lavatories, and a heater block with a well built wash-up facility.
- Hooks house farm in North Yorkshire
This is really suitable for romantic camping. This is because this site is situated at a field just sloping to the Robin Hood’s Bay (which is renowned for rocky romance). Camping at the Hooks House farm will allow you to smoothly go for crabbing, rock-pooling, and fossil-hunting on the rocky island. You can also cycle with the disused railway that runs from Scarborough to Whitby. They have available well-maintained toilets, showers, sinks, refrigerator, microwaves, electric kettles, and freezers. You will not be requested to pay before using them again, as the cost is included in the camping payment. All these things are allowed, but in this camp, you will not be permitted to light a campfire.
