Wild swimming spots in North Devon

Planning day trips for your next camping adventure at Lobb Fields? Make sure you have these wonderful wild swimming spots in North Devon on your hit list

September is an excellent time of year to visit Lobb Fields: the sea is at its warmest, the beaches less busy and the sunsets simply sublime. And, thanks to our prime location near excellent wild swimming spots, our camping park is an excellent base to return to after adventures in secret coves, caves, waterfalls and river pools. Here are a few of our favourite wild swimming spots to add to your hit list.

Watersmeet (pictured)

Visit Watersmeet on Exmoor for a woodland walk, cream tea and splash in the river, all rolled into one delightful experience. With its luscious dappled canopy and background melody of bird song, wild swimming spots don’t get much better than this. Make sure to follow a swim with a Devonshire cream tea in the National Trust tearooms.

Pinkery Pond

Located on the Devon/Somerset border on the wilds of Exmoor, this picturesque destination is a beautiful spot to enjoy a dip amid a natural moorland setting. We recommend making a full day of it by packing a picnic and going for a post-swim ramble on the moors.

Woody Bay

Wild swimmers have long treasured this sheltered bay for an exhilarating plunge in the tidal pool. Expect plenty of camera-worthy stops as you zig-zag through the picturesque woods down to Woody Bay. Once there you’ll find sparkling blue sea backed by wooded cliffs and striking rock formations.
