For camping, there are approx 15 glades cleared in the wood. Some are patrol size, with others big enough for a troop camp or larger events. Most have space allocated for an open fire and there is also a campfire circle available for all.

The main compound contains ‘Stag Cottage’, toilet blocks and the site office.

The remaining part of the woods is undeveloped and can be used to experience backwoods, bivouac or survival techniques.

Stag Cottage

As well as camping facilities, Hamergreen Wood offers 'Stag Cottage', an indoor accommodation facility with 3 bunk rooms sleeping 4, 6 and 8 people (totalling 18 bunks). The cottage has a fitted kitchen with 2 domestic gas cookers, fridge, freezer, microwave, running hot water and heating. The main hall is approx 350sq foot. with tables and chairs available to seat approx. 50 people.

Stag Cottage is suitable for Beaver Sleepovers.

Electricity & gas costs are included in the Stag Cottage hire charge

Stag Cottage is closed until further notice due to a refurbishment. We apologies if this may have inconvenienced you.


As Harmergreen Wood is a 'back to basics' site, there are no provided activities on site. The woodland can be used for backwoods and woodland craft as well as an introduction to camping.
