With its no-frills, close-to-nature approach, Cerenety proves you can still enjoy the wilder side of camping in a uniform, family campsite.
Just a smattering of tents are allowed in the seven sprawling acres, so for large group camping, space is never a problem, and facilities are as green as the surroundings with compost loos and solar panels.
Alpacas roam a few feet shy of the tents, while campers wander further - it’s a mile’s easy stroll along a canal to Bude, where kids can get a seaside fix without sanding up the car.
Price: £8 per person for a large tent for six people (staying between July 4th - September 8th)
