We welcome you to our simple and cosy Bush Camp Lodges. Nestled in the heart of our farm surrounded by 70 acres situated on the Quantock Hills, Somerset, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, our lodges are tucked away in their own private hidden valley.

The space
You will have the opportunity to have your own bit of tranquil countryside, with sole use of the lodges you have booked. The ‘Bush Camp Shelter’ is where you will dine, cook and relax, with plenty of space to play games or sit around a log fire, toasting marshmallows or gazing at the stars around the outdoor firepit. Set away from the Lodges it provides a beautiful, rustic, spacious area to relax and get away from it all. Outposts Bush Camp allows you to enjoy being off grid. There is no wifi and little mobile reception – although you can get some networks if you head up to the top of the hill.

The Lodges:
• Are clean, crisp, warm and comfortable. Originally designed for school groups, with bunk beds and plenty of showers we have evolved to provide simple yet perfect accommodation for families, friends and large groups who embrace the great outdoors. Some rooms are kept as dorms (the kids love piling in in here!), some have been reconfigured for couples or singles, we can adapt to your every need. It’s not camping. It’s not glamping. It’s a unique place to stay and spend quality time in a beautiful place with the people that you love.
• There are 5 lodges, which can accommodate up to 40 people depending on the group configurations. In order to maintain a low base price, we allocate rooms as required.
• Each lodge has a bathroom with 2 showers, 2 toilets and 2 basins. Lodge A has access for the less-able, with a ramp and a toilet/ shower wet room.
• A base sheet is provided for all beds booked, please bring your own bedding.
• Children: There is space in selected rooms for a travel cot if you require one (please bring). The Bush Camp Shelter is in line of site of 3 lodges, so most baby monitors should work.

The Bush Camp Shelter:
• Is rustic, practical, spacious and outdoorsy. A large dining room with tables and benches, a wood burner to cosy up next to and a very functional kitchen with 6 burner gas oven, large fridge, small freezer, microwave, toaster and kettle, we think you will have everything you need to cater for your family and friends.
• There is a large covered area by the kitchen for doing the washing up.
• Is 60m from the nearest lodge.
• Has a large BBQ area and fire pit outside the shelter. Bring a guitar, toast some marshmallows, have a big BBQ, gaze at the beautiful stars around a roaring fire, make special memories.

Lydeard Farm has been used for more than 20 years by hundreds of clients as a center for outdoor education and activities for both youth and corporate clients, giving a huge amount of enjoyment as well as learning. The location is unique. We built our wooden lodges in 2019 and they need to be enjoyed, so we have decided to offer this stunning location to "family bubbles" for private use for the foreseeable future.
