Ashley Activity Centre and Campsite is approximately half way between the villages of Ashley and Mobberley. It offers a range of facilities for holidays, overnight stays, camping, meetings and training.

Covid-19 Update (June 2021) - Ashley Activity Centre is closed to residential stays due to Covid-19. Currently, we do not expect to be able to hold residential stays until August 2021 at the earliest . However, we are now open for a limited number of daytime events ( GMW members only) which can be booked using the website in the normal way. Please keep checking the website for further updates in relation to opening for residential / overnight stays.
