Top 5 Child-friendly Campsites | Summer Holidays

Let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than listening to somebody gloat about their upcoming holiday abroad when your bank balance won’t allow you to do the same. While we all love a good holiday abroad, the UK has places which can be just as enjoyable, providing the weather stays as hot and sunny as it is right now. We looked at some of the best and affordable child-friendly campsites in both England and Wales.

Cofton Country Holidays

Dawlish, South Devon This campsite ticks pretty much all the boxes for those who love to stay active or relax. The many features include an outdoor and indoor pool, outdoor play area and a play room, all of which will keep the kids active and entertained. We love our kids but there will be moments where you need to get to the bar or get away for a short while. Good news, there is a bar and a beach, plus plenty of other activities to indulge in nearby.

New Forest, Hampshire The only campsite on this list which hasn't got wifi access and that’s definitely not a bad thing. You get to spend more quality time with your kids uninterrupted and embrace traditional camping. Don’t worry though, you will only be a five-minute drive away from shops, glorious takeaways and pubs, plus connections to neighbouring towns and attractions.

Combe Martin, North Devon This family owned campsite has everything you need including a shop, in case you forget to pack some essentials. Amenities include a horseback riding centre, crazy golf, bars with evening entertainment, licensed restaurant and much more. Even if by chance it rains whilst you’re there, you can take advantage of the heated indoor swimming pool.

Pembrokeshire, Wales You couldn’t get any more scenic than Pembrokeshire. Point Farm is situated on the coast with guaranteed beautiful views to wake up to every morning. As it’s usually cold in the evenings, they offer firepits to hire so maybe bring that guitar for a Kumbaya rendition around the fire and sing along with the kids. The beach is a walking distance from the campsite and if you’re a water baby, you will love all the watersports they offer including surfing and kayaking, to name but a few. The surrounding areas offer so much more and we could go on about them but we’ll let you find out for yourself.

So next time you run into Gemma, back from her all inclusive trip to Benidorm, chances are that you probably had the better deal and destination after all.

Lastly, don’t forget to take those all-important holiday snaps for the family photo album!
