Creating fun adventures for over 20 years


Over the past two decades, Camp Hill Estate has built a reputation for delivering fun in a thrilling, creative and inventive way for all its audiences.

Built in 1738 the Estate has been a family home, agricultural estate and a sporting residence to the Serjeantson's, Leyland's, Reynard's and since 1945, the Ropner family.

Robert and Jo Ropner took the helm in 1993, throwing the gates open in 1996. Since then the Estate has welcomed over one million people, providing events for top UK PLC's,  Adventure Experiences for Families, Life skills for School Children, Weddings, Festivals and Private Parties

In 2003 Robert Ropner pioneered the High Ropes Adventure Course at Camp Hill with Nick Moriarty of Ropes Developments, one of the earliest recreational courses of its kind in the UK. The experience has since been replicated and rolled out in many locations rural or urban throughout the UK.

In 2005 the introduction of an Equestrian Centre was established with dedicated educational facilities for visiting horses and riders. Eleanor Mercer Equestrian specialise in Cross Country training, Equine Events, Courses and Workshops.

In 2012 Camp Katur Glamping Village was created with a mixture of Safari Tents, Tipi, Bell Tents, Hobbit Pods and Unidomes nestled amongst breath-taking meadow and woodland. It is a place of fun and tranquillity, a back to basics experience, a way of living with one another whilst discovering true outdoor happiness.

In 2016 we significantly enhanced the family offering with the addition of the Woodland Kingdom, a beautiful family play area with a theme of fun and exploration to help a child’s imagination grow in confidence through challenge and excitement.

As a small, flexible and energetic team we punch well above our weight. We have an experienced ground crew and team of Event Managers who all have the capability to handle any scale of event from 5 to 5000.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Camp Hill.

Robert and Jo Ropner
