About Higher Aunemouth Farm

Our Main Camping field


A basic but pretty camping site located ¼ mile from Bantham Beach, close to Thurlestone and Bigbury and 4½ miles from the South Hams town of Kingsbridge. Higher Aunemouth Farm campsite offers affordable rustic camping for tents, camper vans or caravans within easy reach of this beautiful stretch of the South Hams coastline in South Devon.

We have lots of families with young children staying on the site, we kindly ask that music is turned off at 9pm and no noise please after 10pm.

There are four recycling toilets, commonly dubbed ‘long-drop’ loos. They are well designed and with just a scoop of sawdust thrown over, the waste matter gradually decomposes. As long as no non-biodegradable items go in, the loos are completely environmentally friendly.

No electricity we’re afraid, but there is a standpipe for water located near the entrance of the field and an outside cold shower which has a wicker fence surround for privacy.

Campsite 3Recycling and rubbish
We try to be as green as possible at Higher Aunemouth and bins are provided near the entrance of the site for food scraps, paper, cardboard, plastic, tins and bottles. There is also a bin for general non-recyclable rubbish. If you could dispose of your waste in the bins provided, we’d be very grateful. Black bin rubbish is expensive to dispose of so the more we can recycle the better, as this helps keep camping costs down.

Please do not throw bbq ashes into the hedge, extinguish with water immediately after use and dispose of them in the bins either by the firepit or the rubbish area. BBQs are permitted but off the ground. If you are using disposable ones, please grab some bricks which are near the rubbish point and put under your bbq to prevent the grass from burning. There are lots of trees in the field so please, no open fires. There is a fire pit for general use; wood and kindling is available on request.

Arrival and booking
There are no designated pitches at Higher Aunemouth, we have room for about 25 tents/vans and a further 25 or so during the main 6 week summer holiday. Please pitch to the sides of the campsite to allow others to pass through either in amongst the trees or on the main flat expanse of the field. Please call or email us when you’d like to come as the site gets busy during half terms, bank holiday weekends and school summer holidays, therefore booking is essential at these times. We also ask for a small deposit (non refundable) during the main holidays. (An answer phone is on if we’re out) We tend to come up to the site in the mornings and early evenings to say hello and take payment. Cash or cheque preferred please.
