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-only camping area is all part of the magic of our tucked-away site. Free bag transfer is available to our farmhouse from the nearest public parking in Reeth or Langthwaite (40 mins walk), and the camping area lies a further 200m along a rough grass track. (Please note we cannot accept campervans or trailer tents). 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 public parking place on arrival and departure. Please pack everything else you need to sleep, cook (portable gas stoves welcome), eat, and keep yourself and your equipment safe; remembering that you’ll have to carry your own gear for the last 200m to the cow byre, and then beyond to wherever you pitch up. 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.

Mountain campsites near Lockerbie guide

Overview

The small town of Lockerbie is in the Dumfries and Galloway region of southwest Scotland, not far from the English border. The town lies on the main road and rail routes between Glasgow and Carlisle over the border, but those who stop rather than passing through will find plenty to explore. The attractive town is largely made up of red sandstone buildings and its home to one of the UK’s oldest ice skating rinks, which continues to host top-flight curling events. Those wishing to set up camp nearby will find plenty of options.

Where to go

Lochmaben

Just to the west of Lockerbie, the small town of Lochmaben is home to the pretty Kirk Loch, which is home to a variety of bird life including coot and swan and is a popular spot for canoeing, rowing and windsurfing. In winter, ice-skating is possible. Kirk Loch Caravan Park offers pitches by the water.

Moffat

A 20-minute drive north of Lockerbie, Moffat is a designated Dark Sky Town and popular with walkers following the Southern Upland Way long distance footpath and exploring the surrounding hills. Just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, Moffat Camping and Caravanning Club has grass and hardstanding pitches.

Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve

Situated where the River Nith meets the Solway Firth, a 35-minute drive southwest of Lockerbie, the mudflats and saltmarsh of Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve are home to plentiful wildlife, from barnacle geese to natterjack toads, which visitors can see from a network of paths with raised boardwalks. Nearby, the small site at Caerlaverock Castle Corner has pitches for campervans.

When to go

With its promise of good weather and guaranteed long days, summer is the most popular time to visit Lockerbie and the surrounding Dumfries and Galloway region. This is the best time to visit if you are planning to take advantage of the walking and watersports opportunities nearby. Alternatively, if it’s stargazing you’re interested in, October to March is the best time of year for visiting the Dark Sky Town of Moffat and heading into Galloway Forest Park, which is a designated Dark Sky Park.

Know before you go

  • Wild camping is legal throughout Scotland as long as you follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
  • There is a train station in Lockerbie with direct connections to Edinburgh and Glasgow, and over the border to Carlisle and Liverpool
  • You can pick up the essentials in Lockerbie’s small shops but for bigger purchases, head west to Dumfries.
