Mendip Basecamp

Mendip Basecamp, Lyncombe Drive, BS25 5PQ, Churchill


Rural, off-grid, (nearly) wild camping in the Heart of the Mendip Hills! Usually reserved for schools and private groups, Covid restrictions forced us to rethink in 2020. Following the overwhelming response and success, Basecamp is back for Summer 2021!

Mendip Basecamp
Nearly wild means we have all the joys of rural, off grid camping plus those extra essential luxuries! We have two, clean toilet blocks complete with flushing loo’s and hot showers. Our onsite camp shop stocks all the essentials you need, including firepit hire, bags of logs and the all important marshmallows ready for an evening sitting round the fire and under the stars. Our onsite cosy, country lodge serves great value food and drink.
No tent? No problem! We even have accommodation options including bunk tents complete with bunk beds and sofas or you can rent a bunkroom in our country lodge!  Each room has an en-suite, including shower and full sized bunk beds with proper mattresses!
The campsite and lodge is less than a 5 minute woodland walk from Mendip Activity Centre, our main base and home to over 15 different adventurous, outdoor activities!  We have a full range of target and rock sports onsite, and even a dry ski slope and toboggan slope!  Our activities are perfect a perfect way for families to try something new, together.
