Cook on a campfire

Duration:2 hours or less
Activity:For kids - things to do before you're 11¾

We’ve got four National Trust campsites in the Lake District so you’ll be spoilt for choice about where to cook your alfresco dinner. And if you don’t fancy a night under canvas you can even hire one of our wooden camping pods which come complete with heating and lighting (a camping experience known as glamping!).

Simply bring along your gas camping stove or disposable barbeque and get cooking beans on toast! It's easier to stick to simple meals with such small equipment, but always make sure you have an adult on hand to watch you don't burn anything!

Don't forget to make the marshmallow skewers - a mandatory must for all camping trips.
