Option 1: Camping
At Fell Edge there is plenty of space for field camping. You will need to bring your own tent and other camping equipment. There are composting toilets in the field and showers in the barn. There is a charge of £10 for field camping. You can also camp in shared space in the tipi – you will need to bring a sleeping mat and bag. There is a charge of £15 for the tipi. Finally, there is indoor camping in the barn – you will need a sleeping mat and bag. The barn is also the venue for late night music so may not be suitable for light sleepers who go to bed early. The charge for indoor camping is £20. All camping options include a simple breakfast.
Option 2: Arranging your own accommodation
There are some suggestions on the Fell Edge website but Fell Edge is also within a short drive of Ilkley and Skipton which are great places to stay, especially if you are planning a longer visit to Yorkshire.
Rota and help
We operate a rota of help which all workshop participants are involved in. You will usually work in a small group for just one short slot of time which you will be allocated to. This helps keep the weekend time we spend together running smoothly as well as keeping the basic cost down to a minimum. Please let us know when booking if there is a specific task type you are unable to do e.g lifting, handling food etc or a day or timing you prefer not to do.
The food we provide over the weekend is vegetarian. The provision is generous and varied but we cannot guarantee to cater for restricted diets other than vegan and gluten-free. As the kitchen is used by many different groups we regret that we cannot cater for life-threatening allergies. We therefore encourage you to bring anything extra that you may need (ready-prepared food only please).
Weekend Tickets include:
- lunches on Saturday and Sunday
- the Saturday evening Tish (celebration meal)
- drinks and biscuits during the weekend.
If you are eating with us on Friday evening, please bring a cold only vegetarian dish to share.
Please bring a contribution to a communal fruit bowl.
For those who are camping, a simple, self-service, breakfast will be available.
The nearest rail station is ‘Steeton and Silsden’ with frequent trains from Leeds, Bradford and Skipton. A taxi from Steeton and Silsden station will take about 15 minutes and cost around £6.50 (at the time of writing). Information about all UK trains is available from www.nationalrail.co.uk or www.thetrainline.com.
Coming by car
There is parking at Fell Edge although space is limited and we will need to distinguish between those who can leave their cars on site and those who need to travel back and forth to accommodation. We wish to minimise car movements for safety reasons so we encourage as many drivers as possible to not move their cars until they leave at the end of the day or weekend.
