Welcome to Ferny Crofts


Ferny Crofts is now open for all group and visit types, although we have a number of restrictions still in place to ensure the safety of all on site. 

We have carried out detailed research and developed risk assessments regarding reopening, and are constantly adjusting our new processes and procedures according to latest Government and Public Health England guidance, along with industry best practice. 

This means that we are confident that we can welcome groups back to Ferny Crofts whilst keeping everyone safe and controlling the spread of Coronavirus. 

COVID 19 Coronavirus Safety

During to the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic, we have a number of measures in place to help keep everyone on site safe and ensure everyone on site enjoys their stay to its full potential.  

These measures have been developed using the latest information and guidance from Public Health England, the Scout Association and various industry bodies such as the Camping and Caravanning Club, UK Hospitality and Visit England.

This includes limiting site capacity to approx 75%, enhanced cleaning regimes, retaining various social distancing measures across the site and on our activities, and continuing to advise our guests to wear face coverings in all instances where social distancing cannot be maintained.


All of these measures and how they affect your stay will be explained to you when you place your booking.  

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about Coronavirus safety measures in place on site.

As always, it is ESSENTIAL that you or any members of your group do not attend site if you are showing any symptoms of Coronavirus, have tested positive for Coronavirus, or have been told by NHS Test and Trace to self-isolate.

Thank you for helping us to ensure Ferny Crofts remains a safe place for all to enjoy.


We are now open for Scout Groups to use our outdoor and indoor spaces for all approved activities under the latest amendments to the Scout Association's Yellow Readiness Level. This includes use of our indoor spaces and campsites as day visitors or for permitted overnight stays.

We are open 7 days per week, with bookings to be made by email. It is ESSENTIAL that you do not attend site without having a booking confirmed. 

Before placing a booking with us you must ensure you are meeting all the requirements of the Scout Association's "Getting Back Together Safely" guidance, which can be found here.


You can book the site for your own planned activity, or alternatively book one of our self-led or instructed activities. 
Some activities will be delivered in a different way to usual to ensure social distancing can be maintained throughout the sessions. Our Instructors will continue to wear face coverings where social distancing cannot be maintained, and we invite you to do the same.

In addition, we are currently unable to run the following instructed activities due to staffing restrictions that we are facing this year:

  •   Zip Wire

  •   Quick Jump 

  •   Tunnelling
