Extreme Sleeping, Wild Camping Adventurer Phoebe Smith ( knows good mountains. For over 10 years she's been exploring Britain's extensively and has written about them in a range of magazines and newspapers in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia as well as being the author of 7 books - all on the British wilderness and the joys of camping. Phoebe frequently appears on radio and TV talking wild camping, travel and women in the outdoors and In 2014 she became the first person to camp at all the extreme points of mainland Britain, solo, on consecutive nights. In 2016 and 2017 she was named an Ordnance Survey #GetOutside Champion for her work encouraging everyone to have adventures in the UK.

When it comes to mountains we all seem to be obsessed with height. From the scrabble to become the first person to stand on top of the world’s highest, to undertaking the National 3 Peaks Challenge. Phoebe used to be the same – until she discovered the incredible views, stories and secret sleep spots that are on offer on some of Britain’s more vertically challenged bumps. For instance did you know that the Lakes alone is home to a tiny fell that once housed the Caveman of Borrowdale? Or that Yorkshire has its own Matterhorn? And that the perfect hammock spot exists on a hill under 300m in the South Downs? So what are you waiting for? Some of the best views in Britain can be gained for the minimal effort. Don’t believe us? Walk this way…

Because Phoebe would hate for you to be camping on a hill somewhere without a hot drink, she will be doing a little quiz and the winner will get a Jetboil stove worth £80.
