As long as you don't pitch until dusk and strike early in the morning, try any stretch of the SWCP that's at least a mile or more from a road and you will probably be undisturbed.
Okehampton is about 30 miles away.

South West Coast Path
Sorry, I should've put it in full
Mole is absolutely right - Bude to Hartland is a particularly fine section of unspoiled coast. There are roads that run down some of the combes to the sea (Sandymouth, Duckpool, Morwenstow, Marsland, Hartford Quay et al) but once you walk away from those roads the path should be pretty deserted. Obviously wind could be a problem on the high cliffs facing west into the Atlantic and salt spray is not good for tent fabric - rinse the fly when you get home.
Bodmin Moor is mostly farmed and in the morning farmers are often about on quad bikes feeding livestock. But there are some secluded nooks and crannies up there, especially north of the A30. Much of the high moor gets boggy in rainy weather and sheep roam freely. Again, you should pitch late and leave early (dusk and dawn). Watch out for The Beast Of Bodmin (reputedly a ferral panther).
I absolutely love Bude, went surfing there a couple of years back for a weekend, it was awesome! camped in some farmers field but it was still great! There and Croyde Bay in Devon are 2 of my favourite places on earth and I regularly find myself yearning to move down there!
