There are a lot of scouting campsites in the UK, some that list quite reasonable rates for an overnight stay while backpacking or cycle touring. However, are these only available to large groups, scouting affiliates or can just anyone make a booking?

  • Do you realize that most of these sites are booked by huge groups with mostly young people, where they do not keep quiet for separate visitors and where they do not like strangers who are not checked out for work with children. – Willeke Jun 10 at 12:46
  • Yes, I realise that, and it is an unusual place to stay, but none of that prohibits actually staying there. – Gremlin Jun 10 at 14:00
  • Do you have the clearance to work with children? (It might make a difference whether they do allow you to book?) – Willeke Jun 10 at 14:13

    If you are a big group, it's sometimes possible. You'd have to contact the site directly. As an individual, it's highly unlikely - they tend to be either nearly full of kids or locked up and unattended – Chris H Jun 10 at 15:06
