Little Meadow, Watermouth, llfracombe, DevonThe ancient South American tribes of Inca and Maya might have invented terracing to help with their crop cultivation, but seldom can they have done it so well as the folk have here at Little Meadow. By levelling off the land in a series of flat lawns, they've ensured that campers benefit from being plumb-line level with the well-tended soft grass for easy tent pegging, while still enjoying views of the stunning North Devon coast. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has everything: dramatic granite cliffs; wide, sandy beaches; and quaint little coves and harbours.

The terracing also helps create privacy -you'd never guess there are 50 pitches on this unassuming, environmentally friendly campsite. Bright splashes of flowers border the pitching areas, providing colourful framing to the views over Watermouth Bay, the Bristol Channel, and the cliffs of Hangman Point. It's a magnificent spot in which to settle comfortably into a deckchair and survey the scenery - you might even spy a seal or a basking shark if you're lucky (and in possession of a good pair of binoculars).
