Quirky glamping site and log cabin, sleeping up to 43, perfect for hens, stags and families, near Glastonbury Tor

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Old Summer Dairy, West Lydford, Somerset, sleeps 2-43 in 16 bedrooms.

Sleeps up to 43 in a log cabin and glamping accommodation (glamping open from Easter to mid September only)
The Cabin sleeps 5
7 x 6m bell tents sleep 4 each
1 x 4m bell tent sleeps 2
2 Crash Pads sleep 2 each
Sprite 400 sleeps 2 as does Sprite Alpine

Ideal for families, hens and stags, weddings and reunions, Old Summer Dairy is 6 miles from Glastonbury, 1/2 hour drive from Cheddar Gorge, close to various National Trust properties and less than 2 hours from the Jurassic coast.

The private Glamping site package includes the 5 6M Belltents and mini Marquee for activities. There is a fully equipped kitchen facility, toilets and showers. There is a covered barn for outdoor dining and gathering, a piazza space, a BBQ area, chillout space with sofas and a woodburner. Outside is a sunken firepit in a dell. We can add another 6M Belltent or our 2 Crash Pads which are like American covered wagons on legs with double mattresses in sleeping up to 2 each. There is a Vintage Sprite 400 caravan sleeping 2 in a 6 x 4ft bed and retro styling and an Alpine with double bed and Indian theme. We have a 4M Belltent which sleeps 2 in single beds as well.

We are trying to balance the needs for our guests to celebrate and have fun whilst considering our planet
so we donate £50 per month to the WWF and reinvest money in our Nature Reserve. We are off grid with power provided by solar so high output electrical equipment cant be used although there is plenty for everyday use.
We are passionate about recycling and provide eco toiletries.
We have a no dogs policy due to the wildlife.

The Cabin was featured on Channel 4 'Cabins in the Wild' and sleeps up to 5 in 2 double and 1 single sleeping lofts accessed by stepladders. The cabin has a toilet and shower, kitchen/living area with TV and double sofa bed and a covered porch with gas barbecue. There are views to Glastonbury Tor, and lots of outdoor space with wildflowers. We can add a 6M Belltent outside here too.

There is lots of outdoor space for games and activities and for extra campers with their own facilities for a small fee.

We have contacts for suppliers such as caterers and entertainments if required.
