First Name

Based at our beautiful outdoor activity centre, Fairthorne Manor, we have a truly spectacular public family campsite ready for everyone to explore. But what we wanted to share today was the fact that, through the support of fantastic volunteers and funding opportunities, we can make the most amazing experiences for children.

Introducing our newest campsite feature – the Adventure Play Park, which was built in September 2017 by volunteers from BAE Systems and Splash Projects. The team had just 3 days to complete the new addition and worked down to the wire before it’s grand unveiling, where it was put to the test by local school children (no pressure!). Luckily, they all gave a thumbs up to the volunteers’ efforts. The area features ramps, walk ways, netting, imaginative play spaces, and is right next door to our campsite bar – bonus! You don’t need to be staying with us to access the park, it is open to all so pop along and give it a try!

Or before you do why not have a look at the videos of how it got made:
