    I’ve spotted a site that allows wild camping called Brockwell wood near Newcastle. Worried about noise. Anyone have experience with this place before?

    Been quite a few times , great place , numerous spots to camp in , when dry can get car quite close otherwise a walk in from farm house , plenty of established fire pits , not much standing deadwood ( can take some logs or buy from owner ) , there is a natural water source ( I would filter and boil ) or carry in ( can fill up at farm ) .

    No toilets so make sure your prepared for that .

    Shops five min drive away ( or half hour walk ) .

    Although Brockwell is only 7 miles from Newcastle it does feel remote and wild . There is sometimes some traffic noise in the evening and planes do overfly but to be honest I’ve always felt I’m in the woods and it’s not been a problem .

    Sometimes you might not see anyone else all weekend

    Thanks fellas, Brockwell does seem very good just needed some confirmation from others so I didn’t get disappointed. Any other suggestions of places that were remote would be greatly appreciated. I adopt a leave no trace attitude and respect the land so any suggestions would be respected
