Winter weather likely, but we will aim to offer a range of walks.

Our annual Winter Camp is OutdoorLads' birthday event in February each year, and in 2023 we will be returning top where it all started back in 2006 - Great Langdale!

This page is for a pod rather than a tent, each pod shared between two people. (If you're coming alone, that's fine - we'll pair you up with someone on arrival.) You can book to camp in a tent on this page here. 

The name should give it away, but this is camping in the winter and so will be cold - it is not for the faint hearted, but equally it is not out of reach of anyone.  It goes without saying that you'll need to make good preparations to keep warm  and dry all weekend, but having done that you'll find that winter camping can be a great experience! Think mountain views, cold weather  and if you're lucky some snow, but also think roaring fires in great pubs with hearty food, good conversation with new and old friends, all making a memorable weekend!

The walks available on the day will vary depending on the conditions at the time, but in this part of the country, every walk is a stunner and there are lots of options - very likely there will be a harder mountain walk and something a bit easier, but there will still be lots of ascent involved - this is the Lake District after all!

Our campsite has great onsite facilities including a cafe serving early morning breakfast snacks and some truly great showers which are free to use, heated by the onsite Biomass boiler! Truly environmentally friendly! As with most of our camping events, no catering is provided. While you are welcome to cook for yourselves on site, there is a pub nearby and we have a group booking for the Saturday night for those who wish to join us.

Pods are great for not having to bring and erect a tent, and offer a little more protection from the elements, however this is not luxury "glamping" - nothing else is provided other than the pod so you still need a sleeping mat, sleeping bad and blankets, etc. The price shown is per person, not per pod. 

Dogs: Well behaved dogs are welcome, must remain on a lead on site and owners will need to clean up after them.
