Nearly-wild camping @ Heggs Farm

1 unit · Tent136 acres · Reeth, England
Get back to basics and immerse yourself in the joy of simple living with a nearly-wild camping experience @ Heggs Farm, Arkengarthdale--part of a collaborative, 200-acre renaturing project, spanning the northern tip of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Stretching from the wooded banks of the Arkle Beck, up to the dizzying heights of Fremington Edge, our site is a wonderfully biodiverse and off-the-beaten path spot, offering adventure-loving families and small groups the chance to unplug completely, and get a taste of no-frills camping, the way mother nature intended. What's more, every booking is for exclusive use of the camping area by you and your group, guaranteeing you a truly unique (and undisturbed) experience. Why Heggs? Get a taste of 'wild-camping' with a few bare bones facilities: Pitch up where you like, make the most of a private firepit cooking area, and enjoy our compost loo with a view. Our remote, no-frills site is the perfect intro to simple living; yet sits close enough to 'civilisation' to hike out for picnic supplies, and/or a pub dinner. Reconnect with nature through wholesome, unplugged activities: Fill your days with poo sticks, pebble skimming, and foraging for kindling. Spend your evenings playing scrabble by torchlight, identifying owl calls, and marvelling at the constellations in our Dark Skies conservation area. No wifi = no distractions. Explore endless routes right from the doorstep: Arkengarthdale is one of the Dales' most beautiful yet undiscovered valleys. Multiple bridleways and footpaths connect Heggs to Reeth and Langthwaite, running along both sides of the Arkle Beck, and up the slopes of Fremington Edge. Part of the adventure is getting here: Our walk/cycle-in camping area is all part of the magic of our tucked-away site. Free bag transfer is available from the nearest on-road parking spot to the farmhouse; and the camping area lies a further 200m along a rough grass track. Every stay plants trees, literally: All profits from nearly-wild camping support our ongoing habitat restoration as part of the Heggs-Castle renaturing cluster. Enjoy the 'feel-good' factor as you roam free across the site and explore our latest woodland creation areas. Find out more at heggscastlecluster.org. What's included/provided with my booking? -Exclusive use of the camping area for you and your group (up to a max of 8 people), including compost loo and firepit with grill. -Access to weatherproof cow byre HQ for storage of camping equipment, including bikes. -1 x wheelbarrow load of firewood, with kindling and natural firelighters (more can be bought on site). -Unlimited potable water in canisters with taps. -Large Ghillie Kettle, firepit cooking utensils and heatproof gloves, biodegradable washing up liquid, washing up bowl, tea towels, first aid kit, fire extinguisher. -Bag transfer from/to the nearest on-road parking place on arrival and departure. Please pack everything else you need to sleep, cook, eat, and keep yourself and your equipment safe. Note too that the site is completely unlit after dark, there are no charging facilities, and phone signal can be spotty. Headtorches, camping lanterns, and portable battery chargers are all strongly recommended. Where can I stock up? Our local businesses would love your support! Award winning bread, cafe-quality ready meals, and Thursday night pizzas can be pre-ordered for collection at Two Dales Bakery; the Bike Centre is known for its incredible cake selection (and excellent rental service); Reeth Post Office sells the usual camping cupboard staples, as well as local milk, cheese and sausages; and Reeth's Friday morning market has all your meat, cheese, and fruit and veg supplies covered. For dining out, there are five pubs within easy-ish walking/cycling distance: The CB Inn, The Bridge Inn, The Black Bull, The King's Arms and The Buck. Ramsay’s Fish and Chip Van also visits Reeth between 4-6pm every Friday evening; you’ll find it parked up in Langhorne Drive. Finished reading and not sure it's for you? Search for our off-grid annexe on AirBnB for simple, off-grid living with a few creature comforts e.g. hot running water, a bed and a bath. This can also be booked in tandem with our nearly-wild camping area, subject to availability.

The Ingleton Waterfalls Trail is probably the most popular route from here but as the village is in the shadow of Ingleborough, one of Yorkshire's Three Peaks, serious hikers might be tempted to take on the 12-hour challenge to conquer them all. Ingleton is also a centre for underground adventure and outdoor activity including, of course, camping. Nearby, there are plenty of local campsites, some within the national park, others just outside. Where ever you choose to pitch, our recommended short-list of campsites will offer the perfect guidance...

Overview

Camping and glamping in Ingleton

Underground and overground, Ingelton is spectacularly situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This small village is technically just outside the national park boundaries but within sight of it. The high fell of Ingleborough looms in the distance and a huge network of limestone caves underground attracts cavers, potholers and sightseers. The scenery and activity are what bring people to this part of the world and there's no better way to enjoy them than on a camping or Glamping Holiday. There are classic campsites where you can pitch a tent with little more than a great view and campsites with electric hook-up for campervans and caravans. These days Ingleton and the Yorkshire Dales are also home to a wealth of glamping sites with shepherd's huts, safari tents and more available to those who are looking for a bit more comfort from their next camping holiday.

Things to do in Ingleton

Walkers, hiker, runners, bikers, cavers, climbers and, of course, campers will fit right in at Ingleton. The village is full of outdoor shops and people about to head out on adventures. Some of the most spectacular scenery can be found on the five-mile Ingleton Waterfalls Trail. It's a paid-for, well-kept trail through woodlands past eight falls, including the 50-foot Thornton Force. For a longer and more challenging route you could walk up Ingleborough and discover the site of an Iron Age Fort along with spectacular views. And for the truly hardy, don't just take on one peak but go for Yorkshire's Three Peaks Challenge which also takes in Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent. It's a serious undertaking of more than 24 miles when approached from Ingleton but it's a great way to see some of the best scenery in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Of course the national park has plenty of other opportunities for walking and exploring and you can find out about them at the National Park Visitor Centre in Hawes or the tourist information centres in Kirkby Lonsdale or Settle, which are a little closer. If you're interested in caving, pot holing or climbing you'll find specialist shops and guides in Ingleton village itself. The village has also got an indoor climbing wall and an outdoor pool among it's attractions. White Scar Cave is about two miles outside the village, at a mile-long it is the largest showcave in Britain, and there's another, Ingleborough Cave, a little further away but en route to Ribblehead Viaduct - an impressive Victorian railway bridge over the dales. Malham is a drive of around 20 minutes from where you can take a circular walk to see yet more spectacular Dales scenery.
