The Campbell Room has been converted to provide comfortable accommodation for self-catering groups of up to 24 people wishing to visit the Quantock Hills or the surrounding area. Because it is centrally heated and has drying facilities it is available for use throughout the year.
The main building is clad internally in timber and houses the main hall, two bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen, while an adjoining building contains showers, washrooms and WCs. There is also have a new multi-purpose cabin. Access by disabled people is possible, but please contact us to discuss this prior to booking as there are some restrictions.
The main entrance to the Campbell Room is under a large verandah, which is useful for changing outer clothes and boots. A door on the verandah provides access to a heated drying room where there are hooks for outer clothing and racks for shoes and boots.
The light and airy main hall, measuring 6 m x 12 m (20' x 40'), is equipped with tables and chairs and is used as a dining, activities and study room during the day. Comfortable mattresses are provided to sleep up to 18 in the hall at night.
Two bedrooms, each provided with 2 bunks and a bed, are normally used by staff. Pillows are supplied. New: wash basins are being installed in each room ready for January 2013.
A new multi-purpose cabin measuring 3.5 m x 5 m was officially opened at our Open Day in October, 2010. While this has the potential to accommodate up to 8 extra people, it also provides greater flexibility in sleeping arrangements for mixed groups, or an additional room for activities, study or storage.
Between the main hall and the bedrooms is a well equipped kitchen, with two sinks, a new Calor gas range cooker with a large oven and 5 rings (including a large high power ring), a microwave oven, a fridge freezer, cooking utensils, plus crockery and cutlery to suit groups of 24 people.
Accessible via an enclosed corridor, the main washing facilities are housed in an adjoining building, also provided with hot water and central heating. One washroom is fitted with 2 WCs and 2 wash basins, while a second contains 1 WC and 1 shower (both semi-wheelchair accessible) plus 2 wash basins. There is also a separate single shower.
Outside there is an area of grass where a games can be played or few small tents could be pitched, as well as a flagpole and a purpose built campfire area with semi-circular seating.
In front of the building there is a parking area for a maximum of 3 cars or 2 minibuses (which must not intrude into the road). A further 3 cars can normally be parked in a nearby lay-by.
