Our tented village is located on Campsite One which is a wooded campsite situated behind the volleyball court.
It is the ideal distance from the amenities block, water points and washing up station.
Please note that the Tented Village is not available all year round. It is only available between April - September. (Exact dates vary each year)
We recommend that 6 - 8 young people can fit in each bell tent (depending on age) and 3 - 5 adults leaders in each tent. The allocation of tents will vary from group to group and will depend upon each groups set up. It is up to each visiting group to allocate participants to each tent.
Ferny Crofts can set up 3 man pop up tents on the campsite for any extra participants that are unable to be accommodated within the bell tents. Please note that there is a minimum charge of 26 participants per night within the Tented Village.
Please contact the office for further information regarding minimum numbers to hire the tented village.
