3. Cerenety Eco Campsite, Cornwall
Cerenety is peaceful, old fashioned, back to nature camping, where you can spend lazy days in the grass or playing cricket with the kids. Spend the morning surfing, delight in a relaxing afternoon picnic and while away long summer evenings watching camp fire smoke spiralling idly into the Cornish sky. Do all this whilst happy in the knowledge that your holiday is having a limited effect on the environment.
Solar powered showers, compost toilets and wood burning fires allow you to indulge in an off-grid holiday in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Meander down the canal into town or take a 5 minute wander down our country lanes to our local quiet beach.
4. Castle Knights, Monmouthshire
For something different, the well-preserved Norman keep of Usk Castle in Monmouthshire boasts stunning views over it’s namesake town and beyond to the Black Mountains.
In its grounds, four striped pavilions (with additional space for 10 tents - ideal for group camping) offer guests the chance to gather together like Knights of the Round Table and generally enjoy having the run of the castle grounds, with the ruins free to explore.
Kids will adore the medieval fancy dress, archery, and bicycle jousting on offer, while grown ups have a peaceful setting, magnificent sculpture trail and a pretty market town to discover.
