Camping in Sidmouth

Camping is the ultimate British pastime and there is nowhere better to set up your tent than along the Jurassic Coast where you can enjoy beautiful views, family friendly attractionsdog friendly locations and plenty of wonderful places to eat full of seasonal, local products.

In Sidmouth you’ll find a number of different campsites giving you the chance to find a site that best suits you – whether you want to be in the heart of the countryside, high up along the cliffs or somewhere with a sea view, you’ll find lots of choice in the east Devon region.

Great for families

When it comes to a family holiday, you can’t go far wrong with a camping holiday. It’s a wonderful way to make memories together as a family and you can get out into nature and away from screens. Plus, camping is often a great way to enjoy a budget holiday, especially if there are a lot of you. It’s also a good option for large groups, you can easily book pitches next to each other and create your own little village for the duration of your stay.

Alfresco dining and alfresco sleeping

There is something very special about eating in the open air, imagine starting the day with a fry up cooked and eaten outside? Imagine ending your day with a BBQ or toasting marshmallows over an open fire? These are things you can only do if you’re staying in a tent.

Camping also encourages you to get out and about and enjoy the natural world, so staying along the Jurassic Coast is ideal. You have the south west coast path to explore as well as the East Devon Natural Landscape (AONB) with its many walking trails and cycle tracks. If you choose to stay in September, you can join in with the Walking Festival or if you’re visiting in the summer, you can easily access a wide range of beaches.
