With school holidays just around the corner, how about an escape that combines adventure, relaxation, and stunning scenery? A customer visited Tarka Trail Camping last year and recommended it as a perfect getaway.Nestled on the River Taw estuary and the South West Coastal Path, Tarka Trail Camping is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Wake up to breathtaking views, the gentle murmur of the river, and promise of endless exploration right on your doorstep.

The campsite takes its name from the beloved children’s novel “Tarka the Otter.” Here, you can retrace the famous literary journey on the iconic Tarka Trail. This 180-mile, figure-of-eight looping trail winds its way through ancient villages, wooded valleys, and along scenic riverbanks.

Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or a leisurely hiker this predominantly traffic free trail offers spectacular views of Dartmoor and vast stretches of pristine beaches.

Tarka Trail Camping is also conveniently located between the famous surfing beaches of Croyde, Woolacombe, and Westward Ho!

After a day of adventure, head next door to Yelland Manor Brewery. This on-site gem offers freshly prepared pizzas, snacks, and hot meals, perfectly complemented by their handcrafted ales.

A short walk from the campsite lies Instow Beach, a pristine stretch of sand ideal for building sandcastles and creating lasting family memories. You can even hop on a ferry across the estuary and explore the charming village of Appledore.

With its abundance of activities, stunning scenery, and convenient location, this North Devon campsite offers the perfect setting for an unforgettable GlamperRV adventure.

As ever, happy planning!
