We want the whole experience at Croft Farm to be one school groups will remember for years to come. The waterside adventure continues on-site with accommodation at Croft Farm not only designed and furnished based on feedback from our schools, but with the natural outdoor atmosphere that reminds groups they are staying somewhere truly unique. We therefore offer accommodation options that are both comfortable and practical for groups enjoying the many watersport options on offer.

The safety and security of all our groups is our number one priority. All residential visitors are accommodated in purpose-built blocks set within the grounds that are covered by CCTV.

There are areas of the site that are used by public guests and these are clearly marked and are not used during the groups stay.

A team member is on call 24 hours a day to support groups during their stay. Senior members of staff are on duty until 22:30pm each day. The main entrance gates are locked automatically at 11.30pm and re-open at 6.30am.

In the event that any one wishes to leave or enter the site during these times they must contact a member of staff for the code to open the gates.

What group sizes do you cater for?

Please give information regarding room sizes and room facilities?
The majority of our groups are accommodated in 2- and 4- person heated chalets, located in close proximity to the toilet and shower blocks.

A popular choice with our school groups are the recently added purpose-built Scandinavian-style heated log cabins, which can sleep up to 8 in each. These cabins contain a living room with TV, sofa bed, en-suite facilities, and also benefit from a large veranda ideal for storing wet items and muddy footwear. The popular cabins are perfect for groups of up to 40.

9 Camping pods make up the final area of accommodation at Croft Farm. Each heated pod can sleep 4 and toilets and showers are close by. The maximum group size is 36.

All of our accommodation options consider how we can bring the outdoors inside without skipping on the warmth and comforts everyone desires when it’s time for lights out.

What is the cost of the accommodation?
Our standard price throughout the year is £10+vat pppn, although with larger groups there is room for negotiation.

What is your process for booking pre arranged risk assessments?
We can provide risk assessments on request.
