    hi all anyone know of any remote wildcamping spots in the Lakes,weve been up there this weekend ,stopped in a layby on the road to Ulverston didnt see many ideal spots though(been all round europe they seem to be geared up for motorhomers),weve got an onboard generator so we were,nt stuck for luxuries like TV and cold beers ha ha,the missus wasnt happy because of the traffic noise from the road,any info on spots would be good,also i,ve read on a thread here theres a list of places to overnite (pubs etc) where could i view this list?

    Try googling "campsites at pubs" or something similar such as pub camping. It works!:Smile:

    Nice pub in Langdale Dungeon Gill, they have allowed parking in the past, The Travellers Rest after Ambleside going North. Talking of Ambleside don't forget Miller Field, like an Aire, £10 a night but right in the centre. :thumb:

    Full list of Pubs all over the country - see below at end of my signature. :Cool:

    Also remember the section on fun for wild camping, see the list at the right of the main page. :Doh:

    If you travel from Torver towards Broughton in Furness and take the first right turn up a steep incline The old Rake just half a mile out of Torver straight this will take you to Hummer Lane and Broughton Moor forest. Adjacent to this road are two large areas that are close to the forest and suitable for wild camping. Very quiet and superb views.

    Very few but if I know they do any services I will add to the description, so if anyone knows of any I have missed let me know.

    Not the same list, mine is all my own work that I have found on public web sites when other MH's tell about their experiences of stopping at pubs. I have been collecting these for years & hoped other MH's would find them useful.

    I know I'm not Keith, but if you look under Kieths signature you will see in orange writing 'My Pub Stop Overs' click on it and they will come up.

    Hi Carol,thanks so much for you reply. I must be doing something wrong because I still can't see it. Is it because I'm on my phone and not on a laptop?
