the Orchard Campsite in Suffolk is lovely - its smallish, has a little play area, good loo's/ showers, washing up and a little shop. Best of all you can have fires, most people seem to set up alongside an existing firepit. They charge for logs but its for a barrow and we made ours last for 3 days. Got a little lake and wooded area as well. We took our 2 a couple of years ago when they were 2 and 5, and they loved it. It can get busy in the school hols although we didn't notice any noise issues after 9-10. there's many reviews of it on here

There's a lovely camp site at Hawkser,about 4 miles inland from Whitby, called Sunset view! They let you have camp fires and you can buy their logs-£4.50 a bag will last you 1 night! Basic site in hay fields, so take something to burn your logs in which is off the ground(we find the bottom of our BBQ does very well as the legs unfold to keep it off the ground! Basic site with a most wonderful 180degree panoramic view of moors & coast! Situated in the national park, with very helpful/friendly staff! At only £16 per night for 2adults,tent & car it's a snip! Only open for 1month of the year though!-Aug/Sept(national park rules) It's a working farm with rare-breed, free range pork!(best sausage i'v ever eaten!)
A wonderfully relaxing atmosphere, with no specific pack-up time & no silly tent stickers! just turn up & find yourself a spot in either the quiet family field or the more noisy one where groups & youngsters are welcome! A brilliant site if you want to get back to the old fashioned camping experience!

Looking for a site allowing campfires in the south (2 hrs from surrey ie kent/sussex/Hampshire/oxford). We are in a caravan, but don't want that held against us ?!, we don't want hard standing, straight lines, separate fields, just to be able to let the kids be free in the day and keep warm under the stars at night(Oh, and a clean toilet facility. Ideas welcome.

Only open for 1 month per year?? On the campsite directory it states 'open all year' Can anyone confirm this as we are planning to go here in July and may have to change our plans if it's not open.Whitby Sunset View Campsite

Why not give them a call and ask them, as the site themselves have added the info to state they are open all year.

Breck Farm, near Kelling Heath and Bodham allows fires. And one on Weybourne which looks lovely ....and allows naturists, too, but surely naturists don't venture out at this time of year?

Llyn Gwynant North Wales gives you just that (hmmm weather permitting)

http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/details.asp?revid=3010

Basically the set up is you get one of the many metal "fire trays" and buy a bag of wood £4 which are a fair size. This rightly discourages the random stripping of the local trees.

The scenery is STUNNING - walking, canoe hire the coast not too far away. or just do nothing

RECOMMENDED





I'd +1 this site and you'll have no mobile phone signal or wifi to help break the connection with the modern world.

Its also the perfect excuse if you need a break where the office cant get hold of you!

You cant book up the site in advance though, if there is space they will let you on, if not hard luck, but we've always gone out of summer holidays and never had any problems getting on site no matter what time we turned up.

Its great with stunning scenery, and if you like walking/hiking, you can go over the little stone bridge and head left where they filmed parts of one of the TombRaider films with Angelina Jolie in, & head towards the start of the Watkins path.
http://www.walkupsnowdon.co.uk/places/the-watkin-path/

Then you can head up the Watkins, to the summit of Snowdon and then walk down the Pygs/miners track to the Pen Y Pas car park below.
http://www.walkupsnowdon.co.uk/places/the-pyg-track/
http://www.walkupsnowdon.co.uk/places/the-miners-track/

At the Pen-y-pass car park theres a path that runs down the valley near the A4086 to the A498 where you can pick up the farm track that runs beside the A498 right back to the campsite.

The circular walk is a good 8-10hr hike so a nice all day event where you can leave the car at the site and not have to drive anywhere, so if you get a day with nice weather it will be a memorable walk with stunning views.
