Never has there been a campsite more aptly named. It took this reviewer 20 minutes and two phone calls to find the place, despite the satnav indicating that I was around 200 metres away. Persevere, though, and the determined camper is rewarded with a brilliant little piece of England to call their own. Our tip is to look out for the sign for Moor Lane Nursery as, rather sweetly, the day-to-day business here is growing and selling gorgeous plants.

What this means is that the whole place is beautifully designed, with stunning plants at every turn. A stroll through the site is a revelation, revealing nooks and crannies peppered with comfy chairs, a barbecue, picnic tables and a wishing well along with essential amenities such as a fridge-freezer, microwave, kettle and so on. Its proximity to Croyde Beach means that it’s a favoured hangout of the surf crowd but, thanks to its tranquil, private vibe, it attracts the more chilled variety of surfer. There’s unspoilt countryside in every direction and you’ll share your stay with butterflies, owls, egrets, bats and dragonflies (plus the lovely Steve and family – this is their home and they'll be on hand to accommodate in any way). Back to nature, then, but with the bonus of the lively village of Croyde just down the road.

The Owner Says

Based near Saunton in Devon, Secret Spot Camping is a small, family-run campsite. It is the owners own home - they do not wish to be over run so there are no signs etc. to attract passing trade. Booking Online is the only option. Once booked, campers are sent directions - it's actually not far at all from the main road however unmarked and hidden from sight! - It's the perfect place to getaway and relax yet close to the beaches of Saunton, Croyde and Putsborough. - The Campsite itself has beautiful gardens, butterflies and birds. It overlooks fields to the back of Saunton Sand Dunes. It is a 15 minute stroll into Braunton but transport is better for the short hop to the Beach.
The atmosphere is relaxed and laid back, the perfect place to chill out and forget about the modern world!
