Youth hostels

For those working to a budget, these days Youth Hostels offer surprisingly good facilities.



For those of you who want to get back to nature, the county has a large array of campsites with facilities tailored to suit. From the Wild Camper through to large sites offering all the comforts of home (almost). Camping has come a long way in recent years, improvements in camping gear and equipment as well as facilities now mean that it is possible to stay longer for less. Some even offer yurts, tipis or camping pods. A large number of campsites are just a stones throw from the sea whilst others offer the chance to explore the interior simply and affordably. The south west has a warm climate tailored to suit outdoor activities and this style of living. Give it a try, once tried you'll be hooked!
