Wild Camping Bessyboot – Lake District

It was early March 2023 when I set off for a one-night wild camping Bessyboot adventure near Rosthwaite Fell.

I camped at Tarn at Leaves beneath Bessyboot in the MLD Duomid tent.

But before the wild camp, I hiked up to collect Castle Crag, the smallest Wainwright.

The weather was dry and cold and there was very little wind so the surface of the tarn in the morning was so still that the mountains surrounding it reflected perfectly.

I used my MLD Duomid lightweight tent which was more than enough for this wild camping bessyboot adventure.

Overall it was a great adventure to revitalise the mind and body.

Bessyboot and Rosthwaite Fell: Lakeland Fells for All Folks

The Lake District whispers adventure with every rustle of fell grass and gurgle of a beck. On this adventure I set my sights on two neighboring Lakeland areas: Bessyboot and Rosthwaite Fell.

Rosthwaite Fell, with its highest point known as Rosthwaite Cam, stands tall at a mighty 2,008 ft (612m). But don’t be fooled by the round numbers – this fell packs a punch! The summit scrambles over rocks add a touch of excitement if you are seeking more than a bit more than a leisurely stroll.

Bessyboot, Rosthwaite Fell’s slightly shorter sibling at 1,804 ft (550m), might seem unassuming at first glance. But Bessyboot was championed by one and only Alfred Wainwright himself!

Nestled between these two fells, you’ll find the charmingly named Tarn at Leaves. This little mountain tarn tadds a touch of magic to the landscape, and on a clear day, reflects the Lakeland sky in all its glory.

Farming has been a mainstay in the Langdale Valley for centuries. The slopes of Bessyboot and Rosthwaite Fell would have echoed with the bleating of Herdwick sheep, a breed known for their resilience in the tough Lakeland climate.

Up until the Victorian era, the Langdales were a bit under the radar. But then came the thrill-seekers! Rock climbing put the valley on the map, with Bessyboot and Rosthwaite Fell offering challenging crags for adventurous souls.

So, whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a casual nature lover, Bessyboot and Rosthwaite Fell have something to offer you. The views from the summits are nothing short of spectacular, circling the sprawling Langdale Valley and beyond.

For the history buffs, there’s the lingering presence of the Langdale’s rich farming heritage. And for those who enjoy a bit of a challenge, the scrambles and climbs provide a touch of excitement.

So, lace up your boots, pack a hearty lunch, and head out to explore these Lakeland gems. Bessyboot and Rosthwaite Fell await, ready to share their unique blend of beauty, history, and adventure.

The Importance of Nature & Mental Health

As a hypnotherapist, I know how important being in nature is. Hiking and wild camping gives me an opportunity to disconnect from my busy life and reconnect with what is important – inner peace.

Sitting on a mountain, listening to nothing more than the sound of the wind and the birds (and occasional sheep!) is good for the soul.

This Lake District Wild Camping video is part of the Wainwright Challenge to hike all 214 of the Wainwrights in the Lake District, England.
