If you are heading to Exmoor then I can recommend this riverside site just east of Brendon

Just turn up and pitch, fires allowed. Ray the owner will happily sell you some logs. Its a 10minute walk to a decent pub. No streetlights for miles so the night skies are awesome. Exmoor is a Dark Skies Reserve now.

Two stand out.

The Fox Holes in Bishops Castle - very nice views good eco showers and toilets, clean well maintained, close to the town for walking distance. Carravan pitches, close to longmynd, offas dyke, welsh marches and styperstones.

Tump Farm, Whitebrook MonmouthShire - right by the river, no ammenaties so take a bucket and a sponge, one water tap, river, fires allowed try to use an old fireplace, forest on hand, grass and if your lucky the dairy herd ! Monmouth 15 minutes away.

Opps sorry Toddy
just reread through your post
Never stayed overnight at an official campsite in my life that I can remember sorry.

They have their place, especially if there's a need for reliable clean drinking water, or enough folks that decent sewerage is a very good idea.
I have camped in some very remote places and ended up being incredibly wary of turning over rocks :sigh:

I heartily recommend Newbourne Camspite in Suffolk.

It's a purpose-planted woodland that's just a short drive from the beach and a 5 minute walk from a pub. Tents up to 4 person in the, or you can string a hammock if you like. You can take a giant tent, but they only have a couple of clearings big enough, so specify before booking. Campfires are allowed in the firepits/barbecues and they even sell wood/charcoal to put in them if needed.

Adults-only, dogs allowed, pitch wherever you like, lovely (and free) toilets/hot showers. Peaceful, beautiful etc.

In fact, I think I'll book another weekend there once I post this.

I spent last saturday night on a riverside campsite in Aberedw & had the place to myself. £4 per head, pay at the pub in the village. 1 Portaloo, wash in the river. There was supposed to be a water tap, but i didnt see it and carried drinking water from the tap in the village half a mile away which wasnt a problem. Don't know about fires but if you lifted the turf and replaced it you would probably be ok. The trees looked like they would be ok for hammocks, but the wood is on a slope and i know nothing about hammocks so i may be wrong about that. Great walking country & i was going to go for a bimble but ended up dozing under the basha listening to the river and the buzzards and watching the clouds roll in from the west. No photos or website but Google the Seven Stars Inn Aberedw for a phone number if you're interested. A little piece of heaven but avoid the week of the Royal Welsh Show in nearby Builth Wells when apparently the place is heaving.
