Wild Camping and Camper Vans

The pandemic has seen many more people wanting to come to Exmoor in their motorhomes, camper vans or to camp. These are fantastic ways to enjoy the National Park but please be aware that you must seek landowner permission before parking up or pitching overnight on Exmoor – no matter how remote the location may seem.

By only staying in designated sites you are helping to reduce pressure on the landscape and make space for nature. Our local site owners have had an extremely difficult year and are very much looking forward to welcoming you. So whether you prefer a luxury camping or motorhome experience, or a wilder more back to nature one, make sure you book ahead with a legitimate site (see map below).

Campfires and BBQs

Moorland fires spread quickly and in the summer breeding season can be devastating to ground nesting birds and other wildlife. When conditions are dry, they can start from something as simple as a disposable BBQ, cigarette stub or glass bottle. Always follow the Countryside Code and please don’t use disposable BBQs or light fires of any kind outside of designated areas.
