This event is planned to go ahead. OutdoorLads has exclusive use of the camping on site, and to remain within the guidelines, we will be operating as several, six-person mini-camps over the weekend. The event leader will communicate with participants further on how this will work. If you are signed up to this event and now wish to cancel as a result, please do so in the usual way via the website, and you will be refunded in full. 

 

Join Rob and Ste for a camping weekend in the Yorkshire Dales. Some famous Falls are on our doorstep (if a tent can have a doorstep). One of the country's best preserved medieval castles is within walking distance. The hills are gorgeous. The campsite is attached to a great hotel and pub with real ales and outstanding food. We have exclusive use of the campsite. 

We'll gather on Friday evening, and have a walk or two lined up for Saturday, and a shorter option for Sunday before we all leave. 

There are some things you should know before you book, as set out on the hotel website: 

"Our camping facilities are very basic, but clean and cute… in fact there are two toilets and two showers built inside little sheds, but campers also have access to toilets in the pub during busier periods from morning until night. You will have easy access to the bar with great beers and wines and lovely food, but there are drawbacks (for some!).

We don’t have a shop, (but there's a new and very good one at the garage up the road, only a 10 minute walk away) and we don’t have a laundry! Also, the church bells ring on the hour, every hour, with a reminder that you are still alive every 15 minutes! The birds sing at alarming volume, and occasionally a sheep might bleat - but your rabbit neighbours will be quiet and charming. If this sort of noise worries you, then Aysgarth Falls Hotel Campsite, probably isn’t for you…" Just bring earplugs!!!!!

Finally, you might wonder why there's a pic of my mum on the web page. As we gather on Friday evening, it will be exactly 1 year since she died. She always loved my stories of OutdoorLads adventures, and our earliest family holidays were camping, so how fitting it is to mark 1 year on an ODL camp. 😊😊 Cheers, mum and dad.

Dogs are welcome, when kept under control and with owners who clean up!

Caravans, Motorhomes, Campervans: There is a dedicated hardstanding area for these, but pitches must be booked through the OutdoorLads office on support@outdoorlads.com and there is an additional cost of £12 per night, so £24 in total.
