Camping in Barnstaple
Just as with holiday parks, there are no Barnstaple campsites itself; however, with the wonderful surf opportunities that are presented to you upon a visit to North Devon, it’s easy to see why there are such a high number of campsites in the villages around Barnstaple near the beaches.
With the areas around Barnstaple considered some of the most beautiful that the whole of the South West has to offer, should you want to make the most of the great outdoors in North Devon then a camping holiday could be perfect for you. Even if you’d prefer to be a little further from the beach and closer to the town, there are a number of campsites in the woody areas surrounding the town centre.
One of the highlights of the year that always fills the campsites just outside of Barnstaple towards Braunton and Croyde is GoldCoast Oceanfest. This surfing and music festival is popular with people of all ages and means that the campsites in the area will definitely be full for the weekend which takes place in mid-July.
