The Old Summer Dairy, West Lydford, Somerset

Sleeps 2 - 43 16 Bedrooms 150 Dining 150 Venue Capacity

Glamping site offering a blank canvas for unique wedding celebrations for up to 150, with accommodation for family

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

We offer a completely blank canvas for you to create a unique and personal wedding event here surrounded by our nature reserve and with stunning views to Glastonbury Tor. We have an arrangement with a local marquee company who can provide a wide range of marquees to suit your personal taste and design and he can furnish them and provide generators as well.

Our glamping site has 5 large furnished bell tents which each sleep up to 4 so sleeping 20 in total. The site has a toilet and shower block with fully functioning kitchen for the use of the bell tent guests. There is a covered barn with large dining table, a barbecue area and chillout area with wood burning stove. Outside is a sunken firepit.

The Log Cabin sleeps up to 5 in 2 double and 1 single sleeping lofts accessible by stepladders. There is a toilet and shower too. We also have a smaller bell tent with 2 single beds and 2 Crash Pads which are like American covered wagons on legs not wheels with double mattresses in.

Your friends and family can be involved at the outset to prepare and decorate the site as there is unlimited space for other tents or outside features such as wedding arches and woven tipis for you to have a blessing on site in front of your guests. The wildflower field lends itself to this and is great for photos or to create a festival style theme with banners, flags, Raj tents or similar.

Our glamping site is available from the Thursday to Monday giving ample time for the event to be set up and taken down with friends and family able to be on site throughout. Our Log Cabin is included from Friday through to Monday and our Crash Pads and additional small bell tent can be added as required. Additional campers are welcome on site throughout for a small additional fee. There is ample parking on site.

We can assist with ideas and contacts for catering, photography and flowers or you can use other service providers according to your personal theme.
