Five fantastic UK campsites from the author of Cool Camping

Deepdale Farm
This is my number one place to camp. Close to the coast in North Norfolk, you can camp in one of the two on-site tipis, or bring your own tent. The showers are blissful and there’s a real family vibe. For details, visit

Devon Yurt Holidays
Yurts are a great place to start if you’re new at camping, so why not stay in a fabulous yurt on a Devon smallholding and take advantage of the on site farm shop, which sells local organic produce. For details, visit

Cornish Tipi Holidays
This is the very definition of cool camping, a tipi village on a gorgeous site in Cornwall. With a roaring camp fire, lake to swim in and a beautiful, spacious tipi to sleep in, it doesn’t get much better than this. Visit

Vintage Vacations
If you fancy the glamour of a vintage Airstream, then the Isle of Wight’s the place to be. Here you’ll find cool, quirky and utterly chic Airstreams in a beautiful setting. To see this excellent campsite, visit

Canvas Chic
It’s here that the cool camping movement really kicked off in real style. Camp in the south of France one of the chic yurts and hang out in the communal kitchen tent. Plus, if you love a good bathroom you can’t go wrong here. Visit
