The Sayers Croft Environmental Educational Trust in Ewhurst

The Sayers Croft Environmental Educational Trust

  1. The Sayers Croft Trust was established in 1996 as a registered charity to involve the local community, especially young people, in the enjoyment and care of the environment. Over the year's the Trust has grown from a small charity involving just a few hundred children annually to what is now a valuable part of the community - engaging over 3,500 children and families each year. 

    By working in partnership with the Sayers Croft field centre, the Trust aims to make all the facilities of Sayers Croft available to those who may otherwise be unable to access them due to physical, financial or social disadvantage. With this in mind we run regular school and group day visits as well as dedicated holiday activities for children with additional needs which are heavily supported through grants and donations. There are many facilities for wheelchair users including accessible toilets and ramps. 

    Based in a beautiful 56-acre site, the Trust has a variety of habitats just waiting to be explored including ancient and managed woodlands, meadows, ponds, streams and fields. Our dedicated activity base, The Burrow, is available for free use by local groups and organisations and we are also lucky enough to have many historic facilities such as original WWII air raid shelters (from when the centre was used as an evacuation centre for a boys school from Kent) and a reconstructed Iron Age roundhouse. Other facilities include: wildlife hides, outdoor solar heated swimming pool, ropes courses, climbing tower, zip wire, maze, rafting pond, campfire areas and much more!The Trust runs a varied programme of activities and events throughout the year including regular themed youth clubs for 0-11year olds, fun and adventurous holiday activities, craft days, camping weekends, conservation days, evening talks and events, fun seasonal activities, birthday parties for families as well as educational and team building days for schools. There are plenty of ways to get involved!

    The Trust exists to serve and support the local community and takes an active role in education and conservation. By providing fun, adventurous and challenging activities for young people we hope to create good relationships, increase self esteem, and foster a sense of responsibility and community spirit. We look forward to seeing you at some of our activities soon!

    • Jackie, Mum of Evie (12), Cranleigh

      Evie has been going to Sayers Croft for a couple of years now and thinks it is great fun. I think it is a great place: I like the rural atmosphere and the rural activities they do such as weaving. The kids make friends too and learn to trust each other through games such as going through the maze with one person blind folded.The staff treat all the children well and when Evie is there for the day with other children with learning difficulties, she really feels equal to everyone. Sayers Croft put on extra staff for those
      days and even did so for Evie's birthday party there. It is a great place to go for everyone and I have no hesitation in rating it highly.

    • Katherine, Mum of Two,

      I took my children to Sayers Croft for my son’s birthday and they had a fantastic time. They were able to take part in various different games where all the children could get stuck in and play with all their friends. The staff a brilliant too, they’re really engaging with the children and their energy creates a brilliant atmosphere that the children feel at ease with and participate in everything. It was a great birthday day out that all the children loved.

    • Debbie, Mum of Jake (8) and twins (4), Epsom

      I think Sayers Croft is brilliant and can’t fault the place. It is beautiful, tranquil with so many different activities and things to do for the kids. The staff are well trained, friendly, reliable and even get to know the names of the children. My son Jake goes to days set aside for special needs children and loves it – he comes home so tired. Sayers Croft is an hour drive from home and yet on those days we drop him off in the morning and pick him up in the evening so do four hours of driving but it is well worth it. I feel totally confident in leaving him there and it really is fantastic.

      My boys just completed the beginner's archery course and loved every second of it. The staff were always welcoming, friendly and helpful. Can't praise Sayers Croft enough.

      My daughter has had the pleasure of visiting Sayers croft since she was five or six years old and loves all that it has to offer. The staff are friendly and approachable and the facilities are wonderful, utilising its beautiful surroundings. My daughter recently attended a six week archery course, which she really enjoyed. Sayers Croft has so many diverse activities for all ages.

  3. Sarah Miles

    I have been the Community Education Officer for The Sayers Croft Trust since August 2010 and previous to this I worked as an Assistant Instructor for a year at the same facility. My background is actually in Marine Biology and I graduated from the University of St Andrews in 2009 with a first class degree. I wanted to go into teaching and now outdoor education is my passion. My favourite activity at the Sayers Croft is pond dipping because the children get so unbelievably excited when they catch something! I will usually be your first point of call if you contact the Trust and I will always do my utmost to accomodate your needs - I look forward to meeting you soon!
