Woodland Kata

Nordic Katas

Our unique handmade kata tents are the ultimate wild camping experience without the hardship. Go to sleep to the sound of the deer and owls outside, or (if you are lucky) the silence of snow falling!  Six of the seven katas are set in open birch woodland around 1-2 minutes walk from the facilities.

Kata 5 is located next to the low meadow with its own private boardwalk and car parking space (blue badge holders only).  It's the nearest to the campsite facilities, perfect for families and is wheelchair accessible.

All the katas are hand-crafted by Croft staff to make them really amazing, and they now have toilet out houses too! You can keep cosy in them in all weather using the wood-burning stove in the centre of the tent. We've had people staying in them happily when its -15C outside!
