LGFC is available as a base for Field Studies, Outdoor and Social activities. We can accommodate any number up to 40 people in 5 dormitories of 4, 4, 8, 10 and 14 bunks (see About page).

Smaller groups and individuals are also welcome on the proviso that they are prepared to share facilities.

A group of 26 or more may request 'exclusive use', i.e. we would not book anyone else in alongside you (including campers), although individual Association members retain a right to accommodation, subject to child protection issues. Please don't be put off by this - we can be very flexible!

The Wolfson Room (if available) may be booked by non-residents.
There is no extra charge for Centre users, but you are advised to arrange this when booking.

As described in these additional notes, you can now opt for the Warden's cleaning service.

 LGFC is keen to encourage all sections of the community to use our facilities so the warden has discretion to give concessions to people in some situations. For example, if you do not have regular earned income, if your children are entitled to free school meals, or other similar situations which might make it difficult to afford a visit, then please contact the warden to discuss it. Also, if you have a disability which requires you to be accompanied by a carer, then there would be no accommodation charge for the carer. Please note that we may need to request evidence in some cases.
