The area around Mendip Scout Base provides excellent

opportunities for a wide range of outdoor scouting activities

These include walking, trail biking, rock climbing and caving. There are also forests, areas of industrial heritage and places of historical interest that are suitable for visiting Cubs and Scouts; as well as Explorer and Network Scouts. Mendip Scout Base is just a few miles from the Mendip Hills and is close to the Avalon Marshes, so provides easy and quick access to an unrivalled range of outdoor activities in some of England's most unusual places. It is on the edge of Wedmore village, just a short journey off the M5, and is easy to get to from the East and the south coast. There can't be a better county for outdoor scouting activities than Somerset. There are different types of terrain, a wide variety of countryside, and exciting places to end up. On the hilltops, there are hundreds of ancient monuments, as well as spectacular views across to Wales, the Quantocks and Glastonbury Tor. While hidden beneath the hills are the famous Mendip caves. It is also where King Alfred the Great lived, and where the legend of King Arthur still resonates. The Base can be hired during the day and at the weekend, as well as all school holiday periods

It is well insulated, double glazed, and has oil fired central heating that also provides the

hot water supply; so it's 'cosy' even in the colder months.

Camping and outdoor games can take place in the grassed area at the side and to the rear of the hut, where floodlights are available. The main hall is bright, airy and well lit, and the kitchen has an electric cooker, a large fridge and freezer, a double stainless steel sink and is equipped with cooking utensils, etc. There are crockery and cutlery together with tables and chairs/benches to cater for 40 people. There are two unisex WC’s and two wash hand basins in the toilet; as well as a separate shower cubicle with an electric shower unit. There is also an outside tap for washing off dirty clothes and boots. There is a bunk room for three people (but no bedding), and 14 Trespass two-person ‘pop-up’ tents that can be used in the hall to separate the adults and the sexes, where required. Additionally, if needed, suitable tents can be used in the grounds of the hut to sleep in (the quieter option!).
