The 62 acre site has been an educational facility since it was established in the 1920s by philanthropists, Raymond and Hope Ffennell, who believed outdoor education was ‘beneficial for health’. Now owned by Oxford University it is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and the chalet-style buildings on site are those originally erected in the 1920s and 30s.

Besides the beautiful woodland, pond and chalk grassland setting, central to our decision to use this rural haven is the variety of accommodation options available.

Hill End is an educational venue and operates a strict ‘NO GLASS and NO DOGS’ policy. There is also a ‘NO CAMPERVANS’ policy. There is a carpark for cars on site, but only motorcycles can enter the main camping area. Cars and vans need to purchase a parking pass. Disabled vehicle users should contact us with any special requirements, which we will do our utmost to accommodate.
