What is cool camping?
To us, camping is all about finding those extra-special places to camp. Our team has spent years searching the UK for the very best campsites in England, Scotland and Wales (and throughout Europe too). Between this website and our guidebook series, you can discover our most-loved campsites. At Tent HQ, we don't judge campsites on the number of showers or electricity hook-ups. We're more interested in the location, the view, the ambience, and whether it allows campfires. We understand that different people are looking for different camping experiences; families need half-decent facilities and plenty of room for the kids, couples need peace and quiet, walkers want to explore straight from the tent, and who doesn't love glamping (luxury camping) every now and then in a yurt, tipi or treehouse! But whatever you're looking for, as long as you favour the characterful rather than the commercial, smaller rather than larger sites, and value location or views over pristine facilities, then you're in the right place for discovering the very best campsites in the UK and France.
There are an immeasurable combination of factors that transform a regular campsite into a Cool Camping one, but we'll leave it up to you to find your perfect place ... And don't forget to tell us how you get on! Your campsite reviews are important to other campers, so please tell us about your experiences.
If you'd like to stay up to date with Cool Camping, why not sign up to receive a regular email about the latest campsites we've found, competitions, special offers and more.
When it comes to encouraging wholesome outdoor play for the kiddywinks, this site has it sorted with a capital S.
Too good for tents? What about sleeping in the middle a wood with only a tarpaulin for protection? Real-life bush camping fun!
Batcombe Vale Campsite
Find Utopia in the Shangri-La of Somerset. It’s not so much ‘cool’ camping, as ‘totally chilled out and horizontal camping’.
Bucking the holiday-park trends that abound in this part of the world, Little Meadow remains happily…well, little. Simple, friendly and unassuming, it’s a low-impact, ecological hillside site with terraced pitches that offer great views .
A truly magical place that will spirit you away from your usual troubles.
