Ferny Crofts provides camping facilities for up to 500 people across 27 campsites. Our sites provide accommodation for a variety of camping needs, from the open space of the Main Field to secluded clearings in the woods.
We offer a range of different size campsites to suit your needs, from large field sites to smaller campsites in the woods.
Our campsites are banded in the following categories:
A – 30+ people
B – 20-30 people
C – 10-20 people
D – 5-10 people
For each of these bands, the sites have a set minimum charge according to their minimum capacity (eg ‘B’ Sites have a minimum charge of 20 people).
If more than one campsite is booked than the minimum fee payable equates to the maximum capacity of the larger site plus the minimum capacity of the smaller site. Click here to view our Minimum Charge Policy
When making a booking, please let us know whether you would prefer a field site or a wooded site.
Please see our Site Map for campsite locations and sizes.
Each campsite has a small concrete fire pit which can be used for open fires at your site. Fires are only permitted on these fire pits or on portable Altar Fires which are available from Reception.

TOILETS AND SHOWERS
Our main Amenities Block at Ferny Crofts houses 15 toilets, 12 showers and 6 washing up sinks. There is also an additional toilet and shower suitable for those with disabilities.
There are also an additional four toilets and one shower close to Reception.
The Amenities Block was refurbished in spring 2016, bringing a fresh new look, and additional hot water supply.

A chemical toilet disposal point is also available on site.

As well as individual fire pits on each campsite, we also provide a large Campfire Circle, which is suitable for larger fires and has benches to accommodate large groups.
This is open for all to use, and is non-bookable. We encourage groups to make full use of this facility, and to invite other groups to join for a campfire during your stay.
During the summer holidays, Ferny Crofts staff organise a Camp Fire every Thursday evening for everyone on site.
Our Tuck Shop sells a range of souvenirs, badges, confectionery and ice creams. It also carries a small supply of essential items that you may have forgotten.
The Tuck Shop is open regularly during the Summer Holidays, during the hours stated on the shutters. At other times of the year, please come to Reception to arrange a time for the Shop to be opened for your Group.
