At a time when interest in the outdoors is at an all time high, this year sees the launch of a brand new guidebook: Almost Wild Camping, from the experts behind the best-selling Cool Camping series. Featuring 50 off-grid-style campsites in some of Britain’s wildest locations, this glovebox sized guide is packed with inspiration for first-time wild campers looking for a remote place to pitch without having to arrive late and leave early – and withthe added benefit of campfires, a composting toilet and maybe even the chance of a bucket shower beneath a tree. Exciting recommendations include a tiny 10-person campsite in Scotland only accessible by boat, a restricted riverside site in a Norfolk Broads nature reserve and woodland pitches in Pembrokeshire over a mile from the nearest road.
Every site featured is brought to life with entertaining, insightful reviews and dazzling colour photography. Each entry is also accompanied by a quick-fire fact box detailing the basic facilities provided, how to access the wildest pitches, how far to the nearest pub and levels of mobile phone coverage, along with Ordnace Survey map references and essential contact details. Meeting the needs of would-be wild campers, this brand new title also features an opening chapter on wild camping, with tips and tricks, safety information and advice on wild camping responsibly, with particular pages dedicated to Scotland and Dartmoor National Park.
So, whether you’re a seasoned camper looking for wilder places to pitch or a first time wild camper heading out to test the waters, Almost Wild Camping is the ideal guide to help you plan your trip.
