From Karrageen, it feels you could almost roll down the hill to the beautiful bay of Hope Cove

From Karrageen, it feels you could almost roll down the hill to the beautiful sandy bay of Hope Cove about a mile below. Neatly laid out, the camping and caravan site offers ample space, with terraced areas separated by low hedges to give private camping zones. The enthusiastic and friendly owners, Phil and Nikki Higgin, keep the site in tip-top condition, with well-tended grass and clean, tidy amenities. The takeaway food menu (traditional, vegetarian, Indian and Oriental) and the croissants and bread in the mornings are a welcome addition, and if you fancy a bit more comfort then you can go old-school glamping – with a small fleet of two-bedroom static caravans on site too.



The camping field is a terraced hillside split into a series of quite small, intimate, and attractive cul-de-sacs, where no one overlooks anyone else. Facilities are excellent, with loos and 9 showers (4 womenss, 4 men's, 1 family/disabled room equipped for baby-changing). The 20p shower charge is to preserve Karrageen’s scarce spring-water supply. There are 50 hook-ups, and campers have access to the freezer. Downsides: some static caravans lurking about; no campfires, though BBQs off the ground are okay.
