With English wines taking top awards, who can resist the urge to stay in a campsite with vineyards all around? Open from May, long with guided tours of the vineyard, winery and tastings, the pitches are close to the small village of Winkleigh where you can enjoy a pint in the local pub and stock up on essentials. Facilities are basic (there’s a shower, compost loo and freezer) but if you find the wonder of the wilderness a bit lonely, there’s a shared fire pit where you can chin wag with fellow campers.

In the heart of the Yorkshire Dales sits the tiny village of Kettlewell, with a range of facilities that belies its size: three pubs, a restaurant, a shop and an ice-cream parlour, plus the excellent Kettlewell Camping. On the edge of the village, surrounded by traditional dry-stone walls, this site offers great views of the surrounding fells (hillsides) and furnished bell tents if you don’t have your own, or just want a touch of luxury. For ramblers, there are lovely paths through fields and wildflower meadows along Wharfedale or Littondale, while road cyclists can retrace the route of the Tour de France, which passed though Kettlewell when it visited Yorkshire in 2014.

Alde Garden, Suffolk ; At this tiny, idyllic Suffolk retreat you can choose to stay in a yurt, bell tent, gypsy caravan, woodland hideout or even experience full-blown country living in Badger Cottage – or just bring a standard tent to pitch. It’s a lovely, tranquil spot surrounded by greenery and woodland, full of ducks and chickens. Oh, and the site is actually set in the grounds of a rather belting pub – the Sweffling White Horse – which serves all kinds of local ales and has won several CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) awards. Bliss. The White Horse Inn, Low Road, Sweffling, Suffolk, IP17 2BB.
