Amazing British Campsites beside the Sea

Is there anything more enjoyable than a camping holiday for all the family? With sun, sea, sand, fish and chips and outdoor games to enjoy, there is plenty to recommend the experience – and some excellent coastal campsites to experience. Here are some of our favourites:

  1. Ewelease Farm in Dorset – open for just one month in August each year with a family atmosphere and festival vibe. It has 1,000 tent pitches and superb facilities.
  2. Kintra Farm, Isle of Islay – ideal for secluded wild camping, but with access to great facilities. Ideal for surf lovers.
  3. Overstand, Norfolk – great clifftop campsite with a path directly to the beach. Find a pub, shop, games room and cafe on the site itself.
  4. Sango Sands Oasis, Sutherland – this is located in one of the most northern points in the UK. Fantastic for getting away from it all.
  5. Glenbrittle, Isle of Skye – ideal for hikers and climbers, with a local distillery and hand-roasted coffee at the campsite cafe.
  6. Coastal Stay, Pembrokeshire – head to Wales for a superb location with plenty of sport and leisure facilities, plus a great cafe and shop.
  7. Beach View Holiday Park, Suffolk – geared towards caravanners and glampers who like to have their creature comforts close to home, it’s a stunning location near RSPB Minsmere and the beach.
  8. Aberafon, Wales – head to Llyn Peninsula to enjoy the sea and mountains with its own pebbled beach. Enjoy sea sports, swimming and sunsets aplenty.
  9. Troytown Campsite, Isle of Scilly – you’ll find wonderful sunshine here in St Agnes, with dairy farms around you and white sands. Enjoy the island pub and boat trips around the local coastal sites.
