Twenty-Tenty-Three: New Year’s Eve Camping Party

There’s something quite magical about the community created by families here on the Woodhouse camping fields and we love that we can offer a fun and safe environment for like-minded camping and outdoor enthusiasts to come together to celebrate the year that was… and welcome 2024!

There is no minimum number of nights so book just for December 31, or a night or two either side! You’ll have access to the camping field, amenities, facilities and activities from 9am on your day of arrival to 5pm on your day of departure.

Set up your site then, crawl, climb, swing and splash your way around Challenge Hill, weave your way through The Labyrinth, conquer Cameron’s Climb, have a round or two of Disc Golf… or just curl up under a tree and read a book. The Tube Slide will be open for fast and furious fun (subject to weather).

On NYE settle in for your own family camping party, gaze up at the shooting stars (nature’s fireworks) and ring in the new year with old friends and new.
