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