MENDIP LODGE

Our indoor residential centre, Mendip Lodge, is a large rural bunkhouse, overlooking our ski slope right here in the heart of Somerset.

 

This Lodge will be exclusive to you throughout your week. Downstairs, a spacious lounge area and dining room ensure there is plenty of space to relax in your downtime.

 

Upstairs, there are 15 bedrooms, each sleeping between 4 and 9 people per room in double and triple bunk beds. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with a shower. There is UBS charging and free WIFI throughout.

Bedrooms will be single-gender and age-appropriate. There will be a member of the Mendip team sleeping on-site each night.

 

MENDIP BASECAMP

During the summer, we offer Gold DofE residentials based in canvas accommodation.

 

These take place in our bunktents which are already erected and  up and waiting for you- it's a cross between camping and glamping! You will be based at Mendip Basecamp, our onsite, family campsite which is part of our 250-acre multi-activity centre in the heart of the Mendip National Landscape. 

 

Everyone will have an individual foam mattress in the tent and access to hot showers, flushing toilets and running water as well as WIFI and USB charging! You'll have a large communal marquee for lounging and relaxing. Dining will take place in our dedicated dining tent.

 

Tents will be single-gender and age-appropriate. There will be a member of the Mendip team sleeping on-site each night.
