Wild Camping

Back to Sleep Out 2019 Home

Wild Camp

The National Trust has given us exclusive use of the Wild Camping site at Wicken Fen on Friday 25th January & Saturday 26th January 2019. There are four open fronted shelters which can sleep a maximum of 6 adults each.


Important Information

This is a wild camping experience – the camp site is a 2 mile walk away from civilisation, and there is no running water. This really is the ultimate challenge, so please only sign up if you are willing and able to commit.

We ask you to raise at least £120 of sponsorship. We will provide you with an info pack to help you with sponsorship and awareness-raising.

There is a limit of 24 spaces for each night, we ask you to choose one night so that we can open this experience to as many people as possible.

You must bring your own equipment (clothing, sleeping bag, mat) appropriate to sleeping out in winter, and be responsible for your own comfort and welfare.


Site Information

Arrival time at the site is after 12 noon, departure before noon the following day.

There are 4 open fronted shelters in which to sleep.

Parking is available at Wicken or Anglesey Abbey for the night. Parking is free, but please contact the property before arriving to arrange access.

The venue is accessible on foot or by bike from Anglesey Abbey (2 miles) or Wicken Fen (6 miles). There is a drop-off point where you can leave your gear before parking.

You will need to arrange your own transport.

Dogs are welcome on site but please notify us at the time of booking. Keep them on a lead at all times and please clean up after your dog, promptly.

Please keep noise to a minimum.

There is an area in the middle of the camp designated for a campfire, please bring your own firewood. Cooking inside shelters is NOT permitted and can be lethal due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
