You may believe that going on holiday is expensive, but there is a way in which you can go on a break without having to pay a single penny. Wild camping is where you pitch a tent on a campsite free of charge, where, depending on where you’re camping UK wide, you can do a number of activities in the surrounding area. To accommodate people interested in wild camping, there are a handful of camping sites in the UK which cater for them.
One of the best places to enjoy this form of cheap camping offered by PitchuUp.com is the Dernwood Farm Wild Camping site near Heathfield in East Sussex. For those of you who like the idea of a free holiday, this site is perhaps the best place to go wild camping in the entire South East of England. Set on a farm, the site is tucked in dense woodland, and you could go tree climbing or wildlife spotting while you’re there. As for food, the farm shop has everything you could need for cooking over a campfire during a clear evening.
Rathlin Island Wild Camping is set on the beautiful Rathlin Island of the coast of County Antrim in Northern Ireland. The island itself is a peaceful place which is just made for camping, while you’re not short of places to go walking, if that’s your thing. If not, you can go fishing on the coast.
The North West Highlands is home to Sheigra Wild Camping, which is in the village of Kinlochbervie. Here, free of charge, you can walk along the mountains, take some photos of the stunning scenery or, if you’re feeling a little lazy, stay at your campsite and spot some of the local wildlife. The money you’ll save from paying for a pitch could be spent at one of the local pubs if you fancy sampling some of the local tipples or cuisine.
