Top Ten Scenic Campsites

Great Langdale

The National Trust’s remote Great Langdale site is circled by some of the country’s most alluring peaks, notably the craggy Langdale Pikes. It also has one of the best mountain pubs on its doorstep.

Shieling Holidays on the Isle of Mull

Shieling Holidays owner David Gracie knows exactly how to make and run a successful campsite. But what really makes this one stand out from the rest is that you're surrounded by some of the finest coastal and mountain views of any in the UK. 

Whitesands Beach Campsite

Among the spectacular cliffs and golden beaches of St David's lies a campsite legend. Yes, it does get rammed in the summer, but views from your tent really don't get any better than this.  

Troytown Farm

Pitch a tent here and you are resting your head on the last inhabited piece of land before 3,000 miles of uninterrupted Atlantic. With that comes some seriously sensational scenery.

Gwern Gof Isaf Farm

It's not just the committed hill folk, who are hell-bent on standing atop the Tryfan’s 3,000-feet-high pinnacles that come here. Nowadays, all sorts of people travel far and wide just to be able to camp in the presence of this startling scenery.

Housedean Farm Campsite

Here you are slap, bang in the heart of the iconic, undulating East Sussex Downs – an area boasting some of rural England's loveliest scenery, and you have 900 acres of it to roam in.

Ayr Holiday Park

This happens to be the only campsite right in the heart of St Ives. So as well as waking up to breathtaking views, you also get to be just a hop, skip and a jump away from everything St Ives has to offer.

Bryher Campsite

If it's remote, rugged and scenic camping you're after, then Bryher certainly ticks all the right boxes.  Right on your doorsept is a short climb upwards for spectacular, boulder-strewn views from Shipman Head. Perfect for sunsets.

Tyllwyd, Cwmystwyth

You might find camping right next to a Welsh mine a little weird, but the spoil heaps and tumbledown buildings don't detract from the glorious landscapes of high, rolling hills and moors and tumbling, clear rivers.

Wasdale Head Inn

Celebrated as the birthplace of British climbing, Wasdale Head Inn still draws in the mountaineers and hardcore walkers.  Although it has rooms, we think their campsite gives you the best experience of some of the best mountain scenery Britain has to offer.
