What's in store?

Fancy camping with your family but want to try it before committing? Join a Family Adventure Weekend at YMCA Fairthorne Manor and we’ll already have a tent set up ready for you - no stress, no hassle!

Take time to relax and explore the stunning woodland on the 94-acre site including the River Hamble. Take part in our exciting family activities, including water, bushcraft skills, and more led by our knowledgeable team. All of this adventure is included as part of your weekend experience.

We'll even take care of all the food which is included from your arrival to departure, so you can relax knowing everything is taken care of. No washing up either – just fun in the great outdoors!

"Can't recommend you enough"

"The team at Fairthorne Manor were all absolutely fantastic. Very helpful & attentive with both children and adults on all the activities. We all had a thoroughly good time. They also made a huge effort to supply vegan dishes that matched the meat mains. I was very impressed, it was all super delicious, well done! We'll definitely be coming back again & can't recommend you enough."
