Our Family Park & Campsite is situated within the grounds of Fairthorne Manor, offering opportunities for families to drop in for the day or to stay overnight.
A golf course since 1974, the stunning park and woodland expanse were returned to its original use as a campsite. The area is dotted with copses, a stream and plenty of room in which families can enjoy themselves.
The site is open for families to enjoy a relaxing and picturesque setting in which to unwind along with a range of both organised and self-led children's activities. We can also provide access to the YMCA Fairthorne Manor activity programme including activities such as Kayaking, Archery, Abseiling, Raft Building.
