hi, does anyone know of any sites that allow open campfires?
not very many, if any, i would say.
health and safety rules and insurance clauses will have put paid to that idea on official campsites.
maybe some beachside wildcamping spots on the beach but i wouldnt hold out much hope.
Saw on another Forum on their meet recently at Hay on Wye at the Hollybush Inn, that they had a lovely camp fire which looked safe
Also the site has tipis which have chimineras so suppose they would not be against others lighting up ...safely
We go to one every July where about 10 of our vans all form a circle like the cowboy days and have a huge fire in the middle. We have sing songs, people bring their instruments along etc. It really is good fun. In the day-time we play organised crazy games and the kids are included. Alongside runs a small river and some people bring their canoes. It is really a no holds barred site with some weird tents and teepees, as well as lots of caravans and motorhomes. It's a private campsite and I'm not sure if I should give it's location on here for fear of 'Elf & safety' involvement.
the one I am does
where are you?
We were at a camp a few weeks ago where you could even set fire to the kids:
i like mine a little on the charred side but not too big.......they get tougher as they get bigger.....:Rofl1::Rofl1:

And we've been to a campsite where fires are positively encouraged. It is in France, though:

Bwch yn Uchaf - Camping and Caravan Park - Llanuwchllyn, Bala, Gwynedd, North Wales
The Orchard at Wickham Market in Suffolk allow open fires, they'll even sell you the wood for it. :Laughing:
Many sites won't allow an open fire but will allow a fire in a proper fire bowl providing it is kept off the ground and doesn't mark the grass.
ye one between fairbourne and tywyn think it cy ddu right on the cost and the farmer will sell you wood too as well as home made lamb burgers :thumb:
Theres a site at "Brandy Wharf" Lincolnshire that hire you a huge brazier for £3.00 + wood at £3.00 per bag so bring your own wood + just buy 1 bag. I was there 2 weeks ago + the site was lit up with them all, we a group of 2 m/h's + 2 tuggers formed a square, awnings up, brazier flaming away, food cooking, music playing (all music off at 01.00 am) + beer flowing. Was £14.00 per night 2 adults with h/up. Had a great time.
PS, 5 mins walk is the famous "Brandy Wharf Cider Pub" with alcohol strength as high as 7.2% maybe higher but that was the strongest i saw.
Fisherground in Eskdale have fire pits next to every pitch, old wheel rims, good for cooking on.
Lanes to Eskdale are narrow but we managed ok with our 24ft motorhome.
