You can check out a more comprehensive list at CoolCamping.com.
Treen Farm Campsite, Penzance
They say: A legendary Cornish campsite with breathtaking views, sandy secluded beaches, cliff-top professional theatre and fascinating heritage sites for all ages - all within walking distance.
Located near the awesome Minack theatre, where you can enjoy a performance in the theatre cut into the cliff-side facing the ocean.
Celtic Camping & Bunkhouse, Pembrokeshire
They say: Our bunkhouse (s), group accommodation dormitories and campsite are all based on the National Trust 250-acre working farm of ‘Pwll Caerog’. The farm is very much a real farm where we grow potatoes & barley, graze roughly 100 beef cattle, keep a few pigs and look after sheep over the winter periods.
Our location is amazing, enjoying spectacular views across the Irish Sea, easy access to the coastal path and the picturesque bay of ‘Abereiddy’ and the Blue Lagoon, which was recently home to the Redbull cliff diving team. We even have our own little beach of ‘Aber Pwll’ at the foot of the farm.
They say: Set Amidst The Rural Splendour of Dorset, Rowlands Wait is a quiet, secluded (but not isolated) privately run park situated in eight and a half acres of outstanding natural beauty. This multi-award winning site overlooks the beautiful Purbeck Hills and the picturesque village of Bere Regis in the heart of Thomas Hardy Country. The park is family-managed and carefully maintained and has direct access to woods and heathland offering walkers and cyclists varied routes and, for wildlife enthusiasts, opportunities to see many rare birds and animals.
Sango Sands, Durness
They say: Whales, seals and even the occasional Bottlenose Dolphin may cruise by as you take in the impressive views that keep some of our visitors coming back every year.
There is much to do and see in this most northerly part of the highlands including visiting impressive and dramatic features of the surrounding coastline such as Smoo Cave, Faraid Head, Cape Wrath and Loch Eriboll.
The impressive rock formations, beaches and caves are carved out by the unique local geology as this is part of an amazing Geo Park.
They say: Fragrant Orchids, Greater Butterfly Orchids and Heath Spotted Orchids all flower in June on the croft and neighbouring crofts. The Early Purple Orchids flower in early June on the limestone beds near the shore to the west of the campsite. During the spring and summer there can be good sightings of harbour porpoises from the campsite also numerous otter sightings both from the campsite and nearby. Also seals, buzzards, hedgehogs, swallows, pine marten, Night Jar, Corn Crake and Golden Eagle.
