Remote, remote, remote location, the waters at the western edge of this ex-farm campsite feel like they're at the edge of the world. The fact that a tractor comes to pick up you and your gear just adds to the feeling of being away from a lot of the things that probably bother you about the world. The views are of the Atlantic behind Bishop's Rock, a lighthouse and the uninhabited island of Annet. The remoteness means the beach is clean and uncrowded, and the ex-farm status means that the home produced cream, clotted cream, ice cream, butter, yoghurt, seasonal veggies and beef and pork sold in the store are way better than what you can buy at home.

You need tokens for hot water in the showers, like the laundry, but that doesn't stop the same families coming back year after year – so you need to book in season - or people popping in for a quiet retreat out of season.
