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!  Four of the five katas are set in open birch woodland around 1-2 minutes walk from the facilities.

Kata 5 (our newest kata) is next to the low meadow with its own private boardwalk and car parking space.  It's the nearest to the campsite facilities, perfect for families and has been made wheelchair accessible.  This kata is fully insulated, and has a stove with an oven (one guest has managed to cook pizza in it). 

All the katas are hand-crafted by Croft staff to make them really amazing. 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! They are furnished with sheepskins, cushions and solar powered lighting, and all the camping essentials you need, including homemade furniture.
