Welcome to the YMCA Fairthorne Manor campsite, near Southampton, which offers family friendly stays in a lovely setting with the opportunity to enjoy wide open spaces and access to the surrounding woodlands. (Please note that dogs are not permitted on our site).

All the camping areas are based on flat ground and are beautiful and relaxed settings dotted with copses, a stream and plenty of room to play ball games and fly kites.  Monday-Friday campers are can access the Family Park campsite and surrounding woodland areas only and we ask that you do not wander around the reminder of the site unless you are attending a pre-booked activity with us – thank you for your co-operation with this.


We safely welcomed campers back in summer 2020 with a number of COVID related changes including a drive thru check in, increased cleaning schedules and takeaway snacks and drinks plus our popular fire pits and BBQ rental.

2021 reopening

In light of the Governments roadmap out of lockdown and subject to any date changes, we will be opening the campsite from 17th May 2021 when we can use our shared toilet and shower block subject to Government restrictions.   Bookings for this period can be made online or by calling 01489 785228 during office hours.

New river launch & craft hire

in 2020, we were pleased to offer campers direct access to the River Hamble which borders the site with our river launch and river hire facility (normal charges apply to all visitors and campers).  In the Spring and Summer, river hire is available most weekends – please check our Facebook page for the latest times.  Please note that access is to a tidal river and therefore sessions are restricted to these times only.

Facilities at Fairthorne


Our campsites include purpose-built toilets, showers and washing up facilities

Fire pit & BBQ hire

What better way to finish off each day than sit around your own campfire, roasting marshmallows and chatting to friends or family?  Please ensure you bring your own barbecue utensils.


Activity Sessions

Activity sessions are ideal for a family day out, to try something new with friends or to add some more excitement to your camping stay!

In summer 2020, we were limited with the activities we were able to offer but we are busy making plans for 2021 and will update this page with more information shortly.

Groups and Day Visitors

In summer 2020, we were unable to offer group bookings of more than 2 tent or caravan pitches and day visitors to keep within government guidelines.  We will continue to monitor the advice and will update our plans for 2021 when further information is available.
