The thought of escaping the stresses of modern-day life and becoming the master/mistress of your destiny is something that many yearn for. Wild with Consent can help you to do this with their new self-drive experience in Northumberland’s beautiful and wild landscape.
Wild with Consent is a brand new eco-tourism concept. It has partnered with Northumberland 250 and Northumberland Defenders to create an experience that will undoubtedly be very popular with those needing to find inner peace and balance without heading overseas. The partnership has created a bespoke self-drive experience, enabling guests to get off-grid legally* whilst adventuring across the stunning Northumberland 250 route.
Wild With Consent has put together a beautiful handpicked collection of off-grid sites along the official Northumberland 250 route. The 250-mile driving route will take you along Northumberland’s AONB Heritage Coastline with vast empty beaches, long stretches of rolling hills and woodland teeming with wildlife. It also offers a glimpse into the area’s rich history; clifftop castles, ancient battlefields, and Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage site which is celebrating its 1900th anniversary this year.
All the sites along the route have been personally visited and approved by Founder Grace Fell to ensure they fit the Wild With Consent brief. And those who are seeking peace and solitude will be pleased to know that they are sites which offer the utmost privacy in some of the most secluded spots in the UK.
Northumberland Defenders offer campervan hire with a difference. Their desire to get off the beaten track in an environmentally friendly way complements Wild With Consent’s ethos, which centres around a passion for experiencing the wild whilst leaving no trace. These Land Rover Defenders are fully kitted out with roof tents and come with comprehensive levels of local knowledge, tips on the best places to visit, and access to the Nland250 official map.
All the itineraries can be totally bespoke depending on the length of the journey.
Three nights off-grid Northumberland 250 self-drive experience, including 4×4 defender camper hire (minimum three days), is available through Wild With Consent from £575. To book, visit www.wildwithconsent.com.
* Wild With Consent is a new concept that allows campervanners legal and responsible access to remote sites across the UK.
It is important to note that wild camping in the United Kingdom (including Scotland) in a motorhome or campervan without explicit permission from the landowner is illegal.
The Law in Scotland: Contrary to common belief, The Scottish Access Code notes that access rights do not apply to motor vehicles. The Code also highlights the risk of impacts due to high levels of use in particular areas.
“You need to be aware that whilst you might visit a place only occasionally and feel that you cause no harm, the land manager or the environment might have to cope with the cumulative effects of many people. Acting with awareness and common sense underpins responsible behaviour”.
