Larkshall (Mendip Bunkhouse) Bookings

Larkshall (Mendip Bunkhouse) availability is given in the table below. The weekend dates are Fri/Sat unless otherwise stated.  Bookings are normally for complete weekends starting on Friday night.  Preference is given to complete weekends but single night bookings may be available nearer the date.  Bookings are valid for a 24hr period commencing at 6.00pm at a cost of 8 per person per period (see below regarding minimum charge and raising of fees). Mid-week bookings are very welcome. 

There are normally 30 guest spaces in rooms of varying size, however the property is undergoing major refurbishment at the moment and the number of spaces and rooms available are subject to change. Please confirm your requirements with the Bookings Officer. Camping is possible as required in addition to the available bunk spaces. Bookings marked (P) are provisional.  If you are interested in a provisionally booked weekend please feel free to check if it has been confirmed.

Sole booking of the property is not possible. You may book complete rooms if you wish but note that this will only provide exclusive use of the room and not the property. Larkshall is available for use by members and their personal guests at all times.

There is a minimum charge of 15 per person.

A deposit is required to confirm a booking. The balance of the fees is normally payable when invoiced, but must be paid in cash before collection of keys, or by credit/debit card for which there may be a small transaction fee.

Please note that  fees are under constant review and subject to change, and any fees not paid in advance may be subject to increase.

If you need to cancel a booking this must be done giving a minimum of 6 weeks notice otherwise all booked spaces must be paid for.

Non caving/climbing/diving groups are required to pay a key/cleaning/damage retainer which is returnable if there are no problems.
