Our Glamphouse safari tents sleep up to six people and are the perfect option if you don’t have your own tent and like to camp in style.

Your Glamphouse will be set-up, ready and waiting for you and comes complete with six mattresses and a picnic bench. You’ll just need your own sleeping bags, pillows and outdoor cooking equipment (or eat in Mendip Lodge).

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.

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.

Check in from 4pm and check out by 10am. Sorry, but dogs are not allowed inside our bell tents. Due to low bridges access to our site is restricted to vehicles under 2.7m high.

Rules: We like to keep things simple and relaxed. As a family campsite we only need a few common sense rules to ensure everyone enjoys their stay at Basecamp. Read our rules and quiet night policy here
