Leave the site as you find it. (aka ‘no trace camping’)
We keep your group as discreet as possible, your camp is away from popular areas – your presence may attract other campers to your unofficial ‘site’ A location map will be forwarded when you confirm your booking and please feel free to email or send a text message. Bus train or car, for larger groups we advise you to use our secure parking and confirm this on the booking form available from one to four people or five to eight people.
Be inconspicuous. Our green tents blend into the landscape whereas a brightly coloured tent can spoil the view.
The camp is in one place for two or three nights and on dry / well-drained ground that won’t be easily damaged.
Large stones these are likely to be the homes of small insects and plants.
We carry out all litter – even biodegradable material can be slow to decompose in the mountain environment and may be scattered by animals. We do not dig rubbish into the ground or try to hide it under boulders. Try to take away any other litter left by people less considerate than you.
Fires can be highly destructive. Apart from the risks to you, wild fires can be very damaging to vegetation. Heathland fires on blanket bog can burn into the peat and destroy the habitat. The limited amounts of dead wood in the uplands are also essential habitats for the insects on which birds and other animals feed. Charred fire sites are also unattractive.
A stove for cooking is provided and in the evening put on more clothes, or snuggle down in your sleeping bag to keep warm.
Clean, pure water is a valuable resource relied upon by many people living in the mountain regions. The nutrient content of streams in most upland areas is low, and altering this by adding pollutants and soap could kill local insect and plant life. If you have to wash, dispose of soapy water well away from water courses. All toilet areas are at least 30 metres from water. Always consider your impact downstream.
Keeping warm and dry
Be ruthless when planning what to take. Identify what you won’t need and leave it all behind. When packing, the knack is to minimise the weight of each individual item, so that together there is an appreciable saving. For wild camping, please bring a sleeping bag, some boil-in-the-bag rice and some dehydrated or boil-in-the-foil food for the duration of your visit.
These days boots and waterproofs are watertight, so there is little need for too many additional clothes and your tent should keeps you dry in the rain, so there’s no need for an additional bivi bag. Nibbling dried fruit for tea or something more substantial It all depends upon the type of ‘memorable experience’ you want to have.
Finally, think about what you’re carrying all your kit in. Whatever size your rucksack, you’ll fill it and larger sacks are heavier, especially when incorporating adjustable back systems. For a three-day trip, take a simple 35-litre sack, weighing about ten kilos when full.
Finally, and most importantly, check the weather and pack accordingly. A cold and wet forecast could see you taking extra food and another drybag containing spare thermals etc. Enjoy!!
