All bookings are taken online via this website, here you can book session visits, day visits, and residential stays.

We have two separate booking systems on our website, this one you are in now for visitor/residential bookings, and another for booking activities and facilities such as the campfire circle, which you can access HERE or use the links on the top menu.

Both booking systems work in real-time, if you cannot find a particular site, building or activity on the relevant form once you have put the dates in, then it is not available, please try other options/dates. You can book activities at any time prior to your stay, but we recommend you book them at least 8 weeks ahead to avoid disappointment.

Our instructed activities are delivered by Buzz Active, an ESCC non-profit activity provider.

You will receive a confirmation email when your booking is accepted, an initial price will be displayed, please do not pay this in full immediately as we need to check/adjust fees if required (for bookings with several buildings/campsites we often have to make adjustments).

Discount codes are available on the main booking system, these will ensure you get charged the correct rate, please read that section carefully and choose the correct code for your booking.

Booked buildings & campsites ? - one campsite comes free if you have buildings booked, we will deduct the campsite fee from your booking for you.
