I have always wanted to go wild camping and the bank holiday weekend just gone gave my husband Michael and I the perfect opportunity. Knowing the Lake District would be at its busiest we decided to go to the West of the Lakes. The area that has only one road in and one road out. It only got electricity 15 years ago and has some of the roughest climbs in the lakes, Wasdale.
Wasdale, the wildest of the valleys in the Lake District, is the remote and beautiful area between Gosforth in West Cumbria. Past Wastwater, England’s deepest lake and up to the mountains Great Gable and Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain. So it was perfect for my first wild camp adventure….
