Camping weekend - do as much or little as you wish!

Join us for a weekend of back to basics camping in Staffordshire.
The small, secluded eco-campsite is set within 12 acres of woodland and wildflower meadow overlooking the beautiful Churnet Valley.

We will have our own private camping area, with firepit, within the wildflower meadow itself, perfect for getting away from it all. The campsite is a great base from which to explore the surrounding countryside by foot.

On the Saturday we will take a relatively easy walk through the Churnet Valley and nearby Dimmingsdale woodlands. 

There’s also the possibility, for those who’d prefer a more relaxed weekend, to simply chill at the campsite (hopefully in the sun!). 
 

Facilities

Facilities on the campsite are limited, but perfectly satisfactory. The shared facilities include a compost toilet (yes, this is really an eco camp), a new gas-powered outdoor shower and washing up facilities.

If your looking for glamping level comfort, this campsite may not be for you. However, if you're looking for a back to nature, off the beaten track adventure, then this event is for you!

Firepit: We will have our own firepit, so please feel free to bring some logs - and don’t forget the marshmallows!

Environment: The owners of this campsite are wholeheartedly committed to a sustainable and eco-friendly way of life, so consideration of this should be given by the group.

Dogs: This campsite does not allow dogs sadly.

Campervans: These are accepted, and can be driven into the campsite in fine weather.

Caravans & Motorhomes: Are not accepted.

Photos: Used with permission of the venue. 

IMPORTANT! - Participation Statement

You MUST complete a Participation Statement, here, in addition to booking your event space before attending an OutdoorLads event. You only need to complete this Participation Statement once, not for each event you attend. 

COVID-19 – IMPORTANT, Please read the following before you sign up to this event:

  • Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are extremely mild, or who lives or is in a support bubble with someone showing symptoms, is asked not to attend. This is in line with the government’s coronavirus advice.
  • You must also immediately self-isolate and not attend the event if you or someone in your household or support bubble shows coronavirus symptoms or tests positive. You can find the NHS self-isolation guidance here.
  • This event takes place after 21 June 2021, which is currently the earliest date by which the Government hopes that we will have entered Step 4 of the Roadmap out of lockdown. At step 4, the Government hopes to have removed all legal limits on social contact. 
  • It is possible that Step 4 takes place at a date later than 21 June 2021 and could affect this event. We will review the situation as things change and will advise members signed up to the event if there are changes necessary to ensure compliance with restrictions in place at the time of the event. 
  • If the event is unable to proceed sue to Covid-19 restrictions, a replacement date will be offered, or a full refund. 
  • We must all remember that COVID-19 remains a part of our lives. We are going to have to keep living our lives differently to keep ourselves and others safe. We must carry on with ‘hands, face, space’. Comply with the COVID-Secure measures that remain in place. Meet outdoors when we can and keep letting fresh air in. Get tested when needed. Get vaccinated when offered. If we all continue to play our part, we will be that bit closer to a future that is more familiar.
