Accommodation, events and facility hire
Breaks and stays
Our four accommodation buildings can host up to 180 visitors in a mixture of twin, triple bunked and larger four to eight bunked rooms - some with private showers and facilities. Communal lounges, drying rooms and tea / coffee making facilities are available.
Full board, half board or bed and breakfast options are available for residential visits. Catering is to a high standard in our large modern dining room with views of the Solent.
Perhaps you are looking to hold an event that requires accommodation and facility hire? We’ve hosted everything from sailing and cycling to karate competitions. Or perhaps you’re looking to lead a local expedition and require accommodation only.
The centre can be hired for wedding receptions, birthday parties, shows, exhibitions, corporate entertainment and more. Catering for large numbers is no problem with our well-equipped kitchen. Smaller, more intimate catering packages can be booked through the The Café/Bar at Calshot.
Indoor sports facilities
Calshot has a large multi-purpose indoor playing area which includes five-a-side football pitches. These are available for hire either to individuals or groups throughout the year subject to availability.
