Interested in a place to camp in the UK ? Wapsbourne Manor Farm, or ‘Wowo’, as it’s affectionately known by a growing band of regulars, is a rare and beautiful thing – a great campsite within just two hours’ drive of London. It’s light on unnecessary rules and regulations and big on fun and freedom. There’s always something fun going on during summer weekend evenings: soup suppers; pizza making; and plenty of mingling. Children’s entertainment is strictly of the old-school variety: climbing trees, swinging on tyres and making camps in the undergrowth. In fact, the entire 150- acre site is a huge, natural playground extending well beyond the four main camping areas. Saturday night is music night, with free camping for musicians in return for sing-songs around the fire.

With English wines taking top awards, who can resist the urge to stay in a campsite with vineyards all around? Open from May, long with guided tours of the vineyard, winery and tastings, the pitches are close to the small village of Winkleigh where you can enjoy a pint in the local pub and stock up on essentials. Facilities are basic (there’s a shower, compost loo and freezer) but if you find the wonder of the wilderness a bit lonely, there’s a shared fire pit where you can chin wag with fellow campers.
The island of Arran is often dubbed ‘Scotland in miniature’, thanks to its northern mountains, southern hills and central dividing glen. It also gives a taste of Scottish island life just a short ferry ride from the mainland. On the coast road between Lamlash and Lagg is idyllic Seal Shore Camping Site, offering a private beach and views across the sea to Ireland. Palm trees thrive in the garden thanks to the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. If sleeping under canvas gets too much, you can go for a cosy wooden camping pod or gypsy caravan.
Plush Tents Glamping, Sussex : Going off-grid doesn’t have to mean ditching comfort, as you’ll find out at Plush Tents. As the name suggests, punters can experience ‘the last word in luxury camping’, in yurts that are probably nicer – and bigger – than your flat. The location is a beautiful site tucked-away in the South Downs, and if you get bored of the on-site hammocks and hot tub (as if), you can always stroll down to the sea nearby or explore the rather lovely city of Chichester. Chapel Lane, East Ashling, Chichester, West Sussex, PO18 9AW.
