Rest assured, we've got plenty of space for everyone and enough room to make sure that you feel like you've booked your private slice of camping paradise.
We offer a full range of on-site outdoor adventure activities, and programme experiences for schools, Scouts and Guides too.
FACILITIES AND ACCOMMODATION
Outdoors or in - it's your choice.
Ideal for camping with a wide range of areas on-site to accommodate camps of all sizes from a small group to a large-scale camp of 2,500+ people. Many of our camping sites also have fire spots and we can provide altar fires for you to fully immerse yourself in your camping experience.
We have benches and tables available for hire to save you lugging them with you!
Why worry about having to bring lots of bulky equipment with you? Our tented village takes care of all the hard work for you (well, most of it anyway!). Our tented village is a horseshoe of tents already pitched for you, complete with comfy mattress pads. There’s also a group tent with tables, benches, lighting and a basic camp kitchen. It’s a great alternative to the standard camping experience or even staying in a lodge. Mix it up a bit and book a different option each time you visit. Available to book from May to October.
Choose Broadstone Lodge if you're looking for an easy, comfortable stay indoors. Sleeping 38 people, the lodge also has a kitchen and hall, toilets and showers, and a drying room.
We're renovating the Log Cabin and its kitchen facilities, so watch this space! It'll be a great space for self-led classroom time, indoor activities, or for catering if you're camping with us.
