Rustic mountain weekend in Ennerdale
0 people attending
12 places left
This idyllic camping barn is set in a beautiful spot just past Ennerdale Water. Ennerdale is also a dark sky area which means very little light pollution; in the past we’ve had some magical skies.
It's small, basic but very charming! Sleeping is on shared sleeping platforms with individual mattresses and facilities are rustic, all of which adds to the charm and sits nicely with the environment we'll be in.
This only a small group, so we'll probably all head out as one group on the Saturday, aiming to do as much of the Ridge / horseshoe as possible - but as ever will depend on the leaders attending. This is a proper mountain environment and walks will be challenging, so you should be comfortable in such an environment. That said, this is a great spot with some fantastic walks which we'll be making the most of! There may well be an option to run for the day too.
This is self catering and the event will be led with a very light touch. That said, bring food for an OutdoorLads buffet on the Friday night. There is a small and basic kitchen in the camping barn with an oven grill, kettle, and small refrigerator with freezer compartment.
Dogs: Dogs are permitted on site as long as they are well behaved, under control and any mess is cleared up. Hostel guidelines are that they should be on a lead at all times when in the grounds. there is an additional charge of £30 per dog, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to bring a dog with you.

Food & drink
- OutdoorLads Buffet - Bring something you're happy to share.
Otherwise, bring everything you need food and drink-wise for the rest of the weekend. We may well repeat the Friday night buffet - so try to be flexible - but you're just as welcome to sit in a corner and eat on your own too.
The kitchen is tiny, with limited fridge and cooking space, so please bear this in mind.
