New ecotourism concept, Wild With Consent, has announced its partnership with Northumberland 250 and Northumberland Defenders.

Together, they have created a brand new bespoke self-drive experience enabling guests to get off-grid legally* whilst adventuring across the stunning Northumberland 250 route.


Wild With Consent has launched a beautiful handpicked collection of off-grid sites along the official Northumberland 250 route. The 250-mile driving route takes guests along Northumberland’s AONB Heritage Coastline with vast empty beaches, long stretches of rolling hills and woodland teeming with wildlife. It also affords a glimpse into the area’s rich history; clifftop castles and ancient battlefields, as well as the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hadrian’s Wall, which celebrates its 1900th anniversary this year.

All sites along the route have been personally visited and approved by founder Grace Fell to ensure they fit the Wild With Consent brief: they are sites which offer the utmost privacy in some of the most secluded spots in the UK.


Northumberland Defenders offer campervan hire with a difference. Their desire to get off-the-beaten-track in an environmentally friendly way complements Wild With Consent’s ethos and passion to share the wild, whilst ensuring members leave no trace.  These Land Rover Defenders are fully kitted out with roof tents, and come with comprehensive levels of local knowledge, tips on the best places to visit, and access to the Nland250 official map.

Itineraries are all totally bespoke depending on the length of journey.


Three nights off-grid Northumberland 250 self-drive experience, including 4×4 Defender camper hire (minimum three days) is available through Wild With Consent from £575. To book, visit

*Wild With Consent is a new concept that allows campervanners legal and responsible access to remote sites across the UK.  It is illegal to wild camp in the United Kingdom (including Scotland) in a motorhome or campervan without explicit permission from the landowner.

Contrary to common belief, the Scottish Access Code notes that access rights do not apply to motor vehicles. The Code also highlights the risk of impacts due to high levels of use in particular areas.
