Wild Camping weekend

Wild Camping weekend
Lake District
July 2019

A weekend of wonderful weather, beautiful views and a fantastic sunset.

Wild Camping is a tolerated tradition in the Lake District, as long as it's done responsibly. All land in England and Wales is privately owned, so you theoretically require landowner's permission to camp. This can be a bit tricky when walking across mountains, as you may only decide on a suitable wild camping spot at the very last minute whilst on your walk. So, responsible wild campers adhere to a 'code of conduct': arrive late and leave early (I always leave before 9am); leave absolutely no trace; no fires; camp high amongst the mountains, away from paths and popular areas; protect water sources (go to the loo 50 metres from water); small group sizes; respect and protect the environment. Enjoy!
