Camping & Campervans

Mendip Basecamp is an award-winning, off-grid family campsite perfect for both campers and campervans. Surrounded by ancient woodland you can pitch where you like, park by your tent and enjoy a campfire. With no no check out time you can leave when you are ready.

We may be off-grid but we still have hot showers, clean flushing toilets, a camp shop, washing up areas, a giant sandpit, toddler play zone, USB charging, wifi and a communal ice-block freezer.

Check in from 4pm and check out whenever you are ready!

The camp cafe is open every day for hot breakfast rolls, fresh croissants, barista coffee, ice-cream and soft drinks and our shop is always open for all the essentials and plenty of treats.

Our licensed country lodge and beer garden serves the best local ciders and ales plus craft pizzas, Pieminister Pies, loaded fries and basket meals. Check out our schedule of free outdoor live music and take advantage of our activity centre and make your stay a real family adventure camp.
