Information For SCOUTS
Ferny Crofts is the perfect location to bring your Scout Group, whether for an overnight camp on an expedition challenge, or a full week of adventure.
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.
Ferny Crofts offers three indoor accommodation units;
- The Mountbatten Lodge (32 beds),
- The Croft Centre (32 beds)
- The Inca Suite (6 beds).
These are available for hire on a weekly, weekend (minimum 2 nights) or daily basis during the week. Each of these units have a fully fitted kitchen, a dining room/activity/living area, are centrally heated, and have bathrooms equipped with showers, toilets and wash basins.
The “Sky High” Conservatory is a large 10m x 4m timber and glass room attached to the Croft Centre. The room is furnished to a high standard, with tables and chairs and can include tea/coffee making facilities. The Conservatory can be booked independently or in conjunction with the Croft Centre, at an additional charge. The design of the Conservatory means it is ideal as an indoor space for day visitors.
