Our famous Masham camping weekend is back, at the Fearby campsite with on-site pub, and with lots to do over the weekend, including our walk, and the optional trip to Theakston Brewery.

If you haven’t spent a night in a tent since being in the cubs or brownies – go on, beg, steal or borrow a tent & sleeping bag and enjoy this weekend under canvas. Facilities on the site include a toilet block with showers, sink and laundry facilities. Spice will have a central area where hot water, tea, coffee and milk will be available for you to make a drink.

We include your breakfasts and a fabulous barbecue on the Saturday afternoon. There's a guided walk on Saturday morning too.

Location & Itinerary

Arrive at the camp site on Friday afternoon from 3pm and set up your tent. That evening you can bring food along or eat at the pub at the campsite, or maybe go into Masham for a bite to eat. Breakfast will be provided on Saturday morning and then there will be enough time for you to explore the local area or join our guided walk to the Druid's Temple.

Cooking around the BBQ starts at approximately 3pm. There will be lots to eat with all food supplied so don’t forget to say if you are veggie, but please bring your own drinks, plate, cutlery and glass.

For those on the brewery tour, we will meet at 6pm and set off on a short walk of approximately 2¼ miles to the village of Masham, home to Theakston brewery. Your knowledgeable guide will welcome you to the Visitor’s Centre and your first drink of the evening.

Then we’ll stroll across to the Brewery for our tour and return to experience the flavour of as much of the range of Theakston's products as time allows (included with tour).

We will then return to the campsite by minibus (included) for the party to continue at the Black Swan before returning to the luxury of your tent for the night.

Awaken on Sunday morning to the smell of hot coffee & bacon butties.

After a leisurely breakfast we will strike camp. Why not spend the rest of the day in the dales or maybe enjoy lunch in one of Masham's pubs.

"What a brilliant way to spend the first weekend of sunshine after weeks of rain!”

"A fantastic weekend on a very well equipped site so if you have never camped before it is quite civilised. A chance to really get to know other members of Spice and most of all it is good FUN!!!"

"Fantastic event. Friendly people, well hosted and organised. I can't say anything negative - as a first event it was perfect!"

"A fun weekend at a great location. Handy to visit the beautiful Dales, or take it easy in the picturesque villages on Masham or Bedale. If 1 brewery tour isn't enough, there's always the Black Sheep to try!"

"Another fabulous weekend in Masham with Spice, on my 'must do' list every year - and we were again blessed with glorious Yorkshire sunshine. Brilliant bbq and huge fun at Theakstons - a wonderful weekend with Spice friends old and new!!"

"What a fab first weekend away with Spice. Masham camping and brewery tour. BBQ and breakfasts ace. Great people. The bar tours are fun too."
