Our beautiful 100 acre camp in the heart of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is usually reserved for private groups. However, this summer we are welcoming families and small groups for the very first time. Come and enjoy our hidden, off-grid, campsite!


Real wild camping with freedom to pitch where you like, explore our ancient woodlands and enjoy an open fire - all with the added comforts of hot showers and flushing loos! Our simple, affordable pricing cannot be beaten - just £8 a night per person and under 5's go free! Exclusively for tents and camper vans under 2.7m meters high. Sorry, no caravans or motorhomes due to access restrictions.    

With an outdoor activity centre a short walk through the woods you'll have access to rock climbing, canoeing, caving, skiing, tobogganing, frisbee golf, abseiling, bushcraft and more. Plus our licensed rooftop cafe-bar has been voted the best alfresco breakfast in the South West

After the sacrifices everyone's made this year, it's time to get off-grid. Reboot and reconnect with your family and friends in the great outdoors! 

Get together for a proper, off-grid, outdoor, family adventure this summer. Camping as it should be! 

The government have confirmed campsites can open from July 4th. However, please ensure you have travel insurance to ensure you and your group are covered in case you are asked to isolate or have COVID symptoms at the time of your booking.


Group sizes


The current government advice restricts groups of more than six people from outside your household or more than two households staying out overnight together. Therefore, we have the following group size restrictions in place:


- A maximum group of six people from different households

- A maximum of group of two households


Social distancing


If social distancing is still expected at the time of your visit we will ask everyone to do their bit. Don't worry we have plenty of space and outside is the safest place to be! Current guidance requires you maintain 2m social distance from people not from your own household. 

Toilets and showers


All of our showers and toilets are individual cubicles accessed from the outside - which is great as we have no higher risk shared indoor spaces. We are committed to making your experience as safe as possible. Hand sanitiser and hand washing stations will be available. Our campsite facilities are cleaned regularly and operate in accordance with all appropriate government advice. Our toilets and showers will be open with increased cleaning schedules. Our showers will be open in the morning and again in the afternoon and evening but may be closed during the middle of the day for deep cleaning. 



Toilet roll


Toilet roll has been identified as a high risk touch point. We are therefore asking guests to bring your own or buy one from our camp shop. Please also bring your own soap and if you are high risk or have people in your social/family bubbles that are high risk or shielding we recommend you bring your own masks, cleaning products, anti-bacterial wipes and hand gel etc.




Our activity and snowsport centre is just a short woodland walk away. Due to current government guidelines on group sizes and socialising we are only able to offer private activity sessions in your small groups or household units. Our prices are for your own exclusive group session which include a qualified instructor and all specialist equipment. Instructor led activities are now live to book on our website here and self-led activities can be booked through our partner Booksy here.


Thanks for your patience


Finally, please bear with us. Everything that needs doing will take slightly longer so your patience is greatly appreciated. We are constantly updating our guidelines, reviewing training and refining procedures to ensure both our team and guests are safe. 

Play your part and keep everyone safe.


If any of your group or any member of their household have COVID symptoms in the two weeks prior to your arrival date we ask that you follow guidelines and isolate at home. Please do not visit our campsite. If you or any of your group test positive for COVID-19 please follow all official advice and ensure you are permitted to travel and stay overnight before your arrival date. Please contact your travel insurers as we cannot offer refunds in this case.
