Cumbria Way.
« on: 14:30:48, 12/06/17 »
Hello there.

Doing the Cumbria Way first week in July. Over 5 days. From North to South.


Day 1: Walk to Caldbeck : 16m
Day 2: Walk to Keswick: 13m
Day 3: Walk to Great Langdale 16m
Day 4: Walk to Coniston 16m
Day 5: Walk to Ulverston 15m

Looking for some wild camping spots in the area of the spots listed above. Any ideas or spots you know off would be great.

Thanks
Charles

Ah, it makes sense now  O0

I did the Cumbria Way last year in the opposite direction and enjoyed it. Can't help you with wild camping spots as I stayed at Youth Hostels along the way at Coniston, Borrowdale and Skiddaw House, all which allow camping. There's also a bunkhouse in Caldbeck that can be booked online.

Ok thanks. Right now I have found campsites to stay if I can find any wild camping spots. I know in Great Langdale I can wild camp next to Stickle Tarn. Just looking for spots anyone might now near/around the other stops I have listed.

Late report, but better than never.

I finished the walk. It was a great walk up until the last day. Rained all day. Got lost a few times, Fell twice, met a bull almost face to face, walked in cow poo and disappointed at the end. Wish I would have walked into Carlisle. Lake district was what you imagine. Great place to be.
