Wild With Consent is a pioneering business that connects campervanners with consenting landowners, allowing them to get off-grid legally in the UK – including the Dartmoor National Park.
As of Friday, 13th January 2023, wild camping is no longer legal in the Dartmoor National Park. This was the last area in England and Wales which allowed the public to camp without the landowner’s permission (source BBC).
With a growing collection of sites across the UK, including in the Dartmoor National Park, Wild With Consent provides the perfect solution to wild camping laws. In connecting campervanners with landowners, they enable their guests to legally get off-grid, disconnect and immerse themselves in nature at exclusive and remote sites – be it Dartmoor or elsewhere in the UK.
Grace Fell, founder of Wild With Consent, explains, “Our aim is to “share the wild” with others in a way that does not degenerate the very resource itself: the stunning views, peace and tranquillity, wildlife and raw nature. By strictly only allowing one campervan at each location per night, guests are guaranteed complete privacy, while the ‘leave no trace’ ethos ensures locations will remain unchanged and the wilderness left wild.”
Wild With Consent currently has 60 private sites across the UK, including two stunning sites within the Dartmoor National Park, with more in the pipeline.
