Facilities & Amenities

Mendip Camp is a basic campsite which aims to provide all guests with ‘The real camping experience’. There are 2 male and 2 female toilets, cold water basins, a washing–up sink and 4 hook-ups. Please note that we do not have any showers, however there is a leisure centre in Cheddar with a pool and private showering facilities.

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Mendip Camp is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the flora and fauna of the natural surroundings as well as numerous outdoor and indoor activities.

We actively encourage our guests to have open fires for which you can purchase the logs from us at £6.00 per tub of kindling, soft and hard wood. Firelighters are also available to buy from reception. We very much approve of singing around the campfire but ask that campers respect others and keep the noise down after 10pm.

Well behaved dogs are welcome as long as they are kept on a lead around the camp site. There are several circular walks from the camp of varying length to keep you and your dog interested for days.

On arrival please pop up to reception to sign in and pay. Please note we only accept payment by cash but deposits can be paid via paypal, online bank transfer or by cheque (if booking 30 days in advance)

The Swan pub in Rowberrow is just a 20 min walk or a 7 min cycle away serving good food, local ales and ciders. Wilcox Cider is situated in our closest village - Shipham with good food and lots of local ciders to choose from.

The amenities of Cheddar are just a 5 minute drive from the camp.
