hey,i have been searching for a spot like brockwell for ages...and its not far from my house!cant wait to check that place out...made my day!
so does that mean your coming then tree monkey drew
bump bump no one interested
Drew. You can go to Middlewood and have all the facilities for £5 a night. Last year I organised a meet on Loch Achray with no facilities for 75p a night. I think £6 a night for no facilities is a bit steep mate.
it depends on the owners, and there isnt enough people able to organise meets anyway so Im happy for £6 a night, but i might not be able to make it, Ill have to see.
sofar we have

Excellent find Drew, I'm always looking for sites like this up North, save me having to trek to Scotland, I'll definitely be going at some point, thanks for sharing.
Looks like I'll be testing the site this weekend, first time out for my 6 year old daughter so taking it easy, going up Sat afternoon returning Sunday afternoon. I'll post pictures etc when we get back.
Good trip, not a bad spot at all. The wood is owned by a couple who also own the adjoining fields, you basically drive past their house, up the field with the cattle and into the field next to the wood. We were given a map with locations of the most used spots but opted for an camp out of the way.
We saw one dog walker and there were no other campers.
There is a water source but it looked dubious. A quick walk up and down the main section of stream saw submerged tractor wheels and an industrial pumping station doing their thing in the water.
No problem finding a spot for the hammock or one man tent.
Plenty of dead wood for fires.
They're obviously not used to having conscientious campers are there were quiet a few fire scars about.
I'm glad we didn't choose the main camping area as it was nice to feel we were in virgin forest. Loads of broad leaf woodland, birches in abundance and surrounded by fields of crops.
I'll be going back, was great for a first trip with my eldest and easy distance of Leeds, well easier than Scotland that is!
Massive thanks to Drew, hope I haven't stole your thunder, this will really help improve the possibilities for regular weekend trips.
