Catering at Ferny Crofts

Ferny Crofts provides facilities throughout our accommodation options for self-catering stays. However we know that some groups would like to remove the hassle of catering from their visit.

We are therefore pleased to offer options for fully catered stays with us, working alongside our partners, The New Forest Catering Company, to provide nutritious and balanced meal options to keep your group well fuelled for adventure.

Ferny Crofts Catered Menus

Sample Menu

on site pizza oven

Ferny Crofts have installed a brand new Pizza Oven on site within our Quiet Area. 

Groups can hire the oven out as a self-led session either during a midday or evening time slot. Ferny Crofts will supply all of the cooking equipment and some firewood, however all required ingredients are to be supplied by groups themselves. 

If required, we can offer Instructed sessions, where all ingredients will be supplied by Ferny Crofts along with a member of staff who will guide the session.

Why not cook up some burgers on our personalised BBQ within our Quiet Area?

Groups can hire out the BBQ and the Quiet area either as an alternative to cooking at their campsites whilst staying on site, to use for a self-catered Birthday Party or Team Building Day or even hire it for an evening visit to ferny Crofts (restrictions apply).
