Quick lakeland wild camp.

Quick lakeland wild camp.

With it being bankholiday weekend we thought we’d make the most of it, pack all our gear into my rucksack and head for a wild camp in the Lake District, We parked up in Seathwaite, walked up the path to Stockley Bridge, turned right and climbed up over Greenhow Knott, followed the path up Styhead Gill to Styhead Tarn before heading up to the stretcher box and then carrying on to Sprinkling Tarn, the weather was gorgeous, the sun was shining and the skies were pretty clear meaning we had some great views on the way up. It took a while to find somewhere to pitch the tent as a lot of the ground was soaking wet or really rocky, when we eventually found somewhere we put our cans of beer and Gin and Tonic in the tarn to cool while we erected the tent.

Danby, Fryup and Danby Castle Walk

Danby, Fryup and Danby Castle Walk

This is another one of those walks we tend to do when we are looking for a quick few miles to stretch our legs followed by a pub meal somewhere, in this case usually the Fox and Hounds at Ainthorpe.

Walking Weekend in the Yorkshire Dales

Walking Weekend in the Yorkshire Dales

Sorry if this is a huge post but I decided the only way I’d get it done was to do it all in one post. What seems like an age ago now, we were invited to a Beer and Food evening at the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham, (click here to read about it) I thought it would give us the perfect base for a few days walking and drinking in the North Yorkshire Dales. I’ll upload the routes for the walks soon in case anyone wants to use them. Our first night was spent at the Kings Head in Masham which was close to the brewery, the¬†accommodation¬†was excellent and we were perfectly placed for a short walk round Masham the next day. The plan was to head to the Druids temple and back again, a total of around 10 miles. However not far from the temple we lost the path and...
