For most of the year there is little to see at Fairlinch. For 11 months the place operates as a traditional Devonshire farm and it is only from the last weekend in July to the first weekend of September that its metal gates are opened to campers, unveiling a small and simple slice of camping paradise to the general public.

Firstly, the Fairlinch field is fantastically spacious. Due to its impressive size, the meadow never feels overloaded and there is always plenty of space for ball games and family fun. Flat as a pancake pitches are found at the ascending campsite’s base, or, if you don’t mind sleeping on a wee slope, there’s the reward of breathtaking coastal views from the summit.

The surrounding landscape can’t fail to inspire, with the glorious and iconic Saunton Sands beach located just minutes away. Not content with being drop-dead gorgeous, Saunton is also renowned for hosting some of Britain’s finest surf conditions – when the Atlantic swell’s good it produces row after row of slow rollers, proving irresistible for boarders.

Behind the beach, meanwhile, lies vast Braunton Burrows, England’s largest psammosere (that’s er... a sand dune system to you and me). Boasting an extraordinarily diverse plant community (with over 400 recorded species), its ecological importance has been recognised by UNESCO, ranking the site alongside Mount Vesuvius and the Danube Delta for international significance. Plus, credentials aside, it’s a pretty great place for grown-ups and nippers alike to run wild and explore.
