Camping has been a part of YMCA programming for more than a century and we founded the first continuously used camp in 1861, so by choosing us for your camping holiday you will be benefiting from 149 years of experience!
Our Campsite is situated within the grounds of Fairthorne Manor, offering opportunities for families to drop in for the day or to stay overnight.
The Campsite 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 such as nature trails and natural play. Families can drop in for a full or part day or of course camp overnight. We can also give scheduled access to the YMCA Fairthorne Manor activity programme including our fantastic regular clubs kayaking and sailing.
We can also cater for large groups, wedding and special occasions, just get in touch!

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
