Introduction - Editor's picks for adult campsites

Campsites just for adults offer a tranquil retreat among other like-minded guests who enjoy child-free holidays. So, if you’re looking to take a break away without children in tow, or want a relaxing campsite just for grown-ups, have you considered a campsite exclusively for adults?

You might have older children who no longer go on holiday with you, or be having a holiday to yourself for a change. Whatever your reason for choosing a campsite that doesn’t accept children, you can take your pick from the campsites below and start planning your adults-only adventure.
