6 people attending
10 places left
Escape the hustle and bustle and get a breath of fresh, Lincolnshire air before the start of Autumn. This event is a the perfect, smaller camp for anyone wanting something a little more relaxed and after a busy Summer, or just a well-earned chill weekend!
We will have a gentle stroll through the area of outstanding natural beauty that is the Wolds, followed by an evening with campfire, pub and good friends in the mellow end days of Summer.
The campsite is in the grounds of the Three Horseshoes pub, which will be open both evenings we are there. The plan is to have dinner on Saturday evening before repairing for a relaxed evening around the firepit.
Dogs: well-behaved dogs are welcome, and must be kept on a lead on site. Additional cost of £2 per dog per night, payable to the site on arrival.
Campervans, Caravans, Motorhomes: There is an additional fee payable of £21 for the weekend, please contact the OutdoorLads office on 0161 420 0001 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.

What to bring
As ever the weather may be unpredictable. Please ensure you have adequate layers to keep warm and waterproofs to keep you dry. Although the paths themselves mostly are well-trodden and maintained, it may be a little wet and muddy underfoot after rain, so you'll need decent boots.
Please review the information provided on the My First Walk Event page on the ODL website for more information on walking kit.
Note that this is only a guide and you will need to consider the weather forecast.
A tent is, of course, essential! You should make sure that you have pitched the tent previously, and have all parts, such as poles and pegs. The tent should also be able to stand up to the changeable weather. A 3-season tent is recommended to provide a minimum levels of protection. The event leader has a spare 1-2 person tent you can borrow if you're keen to camp but don’t yet have a tent. Contact him directly to ask about this.
Sleeping Bag / Mat:
You should look for a sleeping bag that provides adequate warmth, below the temperature that you may expect. A decent sleeping mat is also essential – a ‘thermarest’ inflatable mat or a thick rubber yoga-style mat is essential to insulate you from the cold of the ground.
Cooking / Eating Equipment:
Campers should bring some kind of cooking equipment so that they can cook hot meals and prepare a decent cuppa. Check you have fuel for your camp stove and you know how it works. The bare minimum for eating is a mug, bowl or plate and cutlery. Additional equipment such as chopping board, sharp knife, grater, wooden spoon, etc. depending on what you plan to cook.
Sponge / scourer, detergent and tea towel
Don't forget a torch, or better still, a head torch
If you're unsure about any of the items in the kit list, please contact the leader.
Food & drink
As this is a camping event, please bring all your own food and drink for the weekend.
At the very least you will need food for two breakfasts & dinners at the campsite and also lunch for Saturday’s walk.
There are a few shops in the nearby village and town. Not to mention, the pub next door where no doubt several of us will go for Saturday night dinner :-)
