The area and details of the meet

This meet is again back by popular demand. I’ve booked the whole of the barn at St John’s in the Vale which sleeps 8. This is a good cosy barn with a log fire and hot showers. It’s effectively a stone tent so you need all the usual camping and cooking/stove gear minus the tent.

The barn is very well located on a farm and gives direct access to the Helvellyn range plus other local walks, and there is more superb walking and climbing in easy reach e.g. on Blencathra or in Borrowdale.

The trip is currently fully booked as we have to secure the space early on given the high demand for this kind of accommodation. If you are interested in being on the reserve list, or going on similar trips in future, please contact me. For info, the cost is £20 each for the barn for the weekend. On the trip I will need to also take from you a few £1 coins for wood and heating.
