I plan to hick in the dalesway afterwads. But my budge is limited. Thus, I prefer the rate for per person in one night is not more than 10 pounds. Does anyone who has some advices? Please inform me of your information. Thank you very much!!

When you plan to hick on a budge it is customary to sleep rough in hedge bottom. This is not to be recommended if you are female travelling alone.
YHA is closest to your budge - 13.50 to join (UK), 10.50 - 11.50 per night (Kettlewell, Dentdale on Dales Way) Kendal (off route), Windermere (2m from end of route)
Camping Barns are also at: Barden, Hubberholme(Grange Fm), Cam Houses and Cat Holes (Nr.Millthrop) and will cost less but you will need to carry s/bag.
If you carry tent also your accomodations will be easy, but you will be ripped off for turf wear and tear... 'tis the season

The camping barn at Hubberholme is not open to individuals at weekends.Parties only.

Not much for 10 these days.A farmer might let you use his barn if you offer a few pounds.I shared a barn at a farm near Burnside with a bull.

What does this mean? I was thinking of carrying a tent and doing some wild camping on the route. Will this be a problem?

It means camp sites can be expensive, considering... and Merry Christmas!

Thanks.

Is it feasible to wild camp my way along the route?

Not really.Most of the Dales Way crosses enclosed farmland.You could take a bivvi sac and sleep in ditches etc.Campsites are far and few between.Howgill, 10 miles from the start,is quite pleasant.Others are at Kettlewell,Hubberholme,Cowgill,Dent,Lowgill and Burnside.
