Important - Please note!
OutdoorLads have booked the site for 2023 for this very popular event. The five night event will be Tuesday 4 July - Sunday 9 July.
However, the site have not determined their 2023 prices, and so we don't yet know what to charge our members. We know people are keen to get this in their diaries, so by registering your interest on this event page, you'll be notified first when the paid-for event page is open for bookings - which we expect to be well into the Autumn. We'll give you several days notice by site message of the day and time that booking opens. Please do note that we will NOT be able to transfer any bookings you make independently with the site to the group field.
This is an amazing location surrounded by some of the most famous mountains in the Lake District great for walking, climbing, & mountain biking. There is a tarn within walking distance and we have links with a local watersports centre around a 30min drive away.
Due to the type of event we won't be listing the majority of events before the event as we don't know the weather, leaders available or skill set of people available that day. Leaders will write their events on a whiteboard during the week so you'll be able to see meeting times, location and type of event that way (example in the pictures). Tried and tested and this method works; just means we can make the most of what's possible on the day.
You don't have to camp with us to take part; other options including hostel and a hostel on the same road are available, and full members are welcome to join us for the daytime events. A separate event page will be made available nearer the time for this purpose.

What to bring
Recommended Kit List
In addition to what you need for the daytime activities, some reminders for what you'll need for camping:
Hand sanitiser and a face covering: whilst we are living with Covid-19, please bring your own to events to help keep everyone safe
Tent: make sure you know how to pitch it, even in bad weather or in the dark. Check you have all the poles, ropes and pegs. A 3 season tent is the minimum recommended level of protection.
Sleeping bag: one that provides adequate warmth, designed to go below the temperature that you expect
Sleeping mat: will keep you warmer and dryer
Waterproof bags: for spare, dry clothing
Food: search online for camping food that’s easy to cook and filling
Hot drinks: at least in cold weather
Cooking Equipment: check you have fuel and know how yours works
Eating equipment: mug, bowl or plate and cutlery
Washing up equipment: detergent, brush/scourer and tea towel
Wash kit: remember to include a towel, shower gel and shampoo
Torch: or easier still, a head torch
Food & drink
There are several pubs within walking distance, but it's a good idea to make sure you have emergencies supplies or are willing to drive.
There is a Co-op about a 5-10 min drive away and Ambleside is 20mins away.
The shop sells coffee and bacon butties etc as well as things to make a basic camp meal.
