Sites accessible by public transport?
Edale in the peak district springs to mind but it is near hills rather
than beaches, couple of nice little sites within 5 minutes of the
Newquay in Cornwall is another option, plenty of camp sites around
Newqay (the site at Porth is virtually on the beach and close to town
also) tho you might need to take a short bus ride from the train
station if you dont fancy walking a couple of miles. I would think
most of the bigger seaside resorts are on coach routes and have
campsites again within local bus distance.

We're planning on taking up camping again - but with two small
and 3yo) and no car the biggest challenge is finding somewhere we
We don't drive so hiring a car isn't an option. We need to find a
well-equipped site (with loos, showers, on-site shop etc) within
distance of a train station - I guess within a mile or so. Ideally
a beach and a town.
We'll be carrying everything on our backs, including the tent and
equipment, plus enough clothes for the four of us, so we won't have
loads of equipment. We did this a few times when we had just the one
and in practice it meant that we tended to eat out a lot - so we
need to be
near somewhere with shops, cafes etc.
A tall order? Surely there must be somewhere. We've looked at a
of campsite recommendations - I've checked 20-30 or so promising
sites on the map, but they're all in the middle of nowhere.
So I'm hoping some of you have been to great sites which you happen
are near train stations. We live in London, so the South coast would
easiest, but we'll consider anywhere in Britain.
TIA for your recommendations -
