We use LPG gas to heat water for the lodges, so you’ll have hot showers and running water on demand.
No – each lodge has its own inside en-suite shower room with toilet and basin.
Our accommodation is self-catering, each lodge having a fully
equipped kitchen. However, we can arrange for hampers of locally sourced produce to be delivered to your lodge on request for a reasonable price.
You can also arrange for delivery of food directly from The Newt In Somerset to your safari tent through their website.
The lodge will be thoroughly cleaned and serviced on the day of your arrival.
There is a designated parking area, with room for two cars per lodge. Please do not drive onto the field to park next to the lodge itself. There’s a trolley in the parking area you can use to transport luggage to your lodge.
Most definitely. There’s a Cadac barbecue grill on each veranda. We do have a “no naked flame” rule inside the lodges though, for reasons of fire safety.
Due to the rural nature of the area and livestock on site, we are unable to accommodate pets at Hadspen Glamping.
Yes, there is a fully stocked wood store at your disposal.
No, we don’t have internet due to the off-grid nature of the site. However, 4G mobile signal is good with most networks.

The three lodges combined can sleep a maximum of 15 people, although the bunk beds in the second bedrooms are not suitable for adults. You could book all three lodges for a large family group. Call us on 07730 355945 to discuss your options.

We are exceptionally lucky to be situated next door to The Newt, in Somerset, a fantastic award-winning visitor attraction set in the grounds surrounding Hadspen House. Visit the farm shop, the gardens, museum, roman villa, garden café, orchards and much more. We are just a few minutes’ drive from the towns of Bruton, Castle Cary and Wincanton, all well-supplied with shops for essentials. There are numerous interesting attractions and quaint villages to explore very close to our site. Feel free to ask us for suggestions!

Our glamping lodges are comfortable and warm inside even in wet, chilly weather.
