The Campbell Room

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to explore and appreciate the natural world.

The Campbell Room offers low-cost self-catering group accommodation for up to 24 people in Somerset’s Quantock Hills. It provides an ideal base for outdoor activities, exploring the local area, for training courses and for residential educational visits. The centre is centrally heated, operates throughout the year and accepts advance bookings from organised groups.

Located at the mouth of an attractive wooded valley leading to the heart of the Quantock Hills – England’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – the centre is close to many routes for walking, cycling and horse riding, with extensive views from the moorland tops. The centre is just over a mile from the start of the Coleridge Way long distance footpath and within reach of National Cycle Routes 3 and 33.

During 2013 it was recognised that new, younger people were needed to refresh Sedgemoor District Scout’s management committee if the Campbell Room was to continue.

This eventually resulted in a public appeal for volunteers, aided by the local press, which resulted in several welcome offers of help, including from YMCA Somerset Coast Group.

As a result the subsequent discussions, the Scouts decided that the best way to secure the Campbell Room’s long term future was, in fact, to transfer its management to the YMCA. YMCA Somerset Coast Group have a very similar ethos to the Scouts, and under their management the Campbell Room will continue to welcome a similarly wide range of organised groups, as well as being used by the YMCA themselves for their Camps, Trips and School Work.

‘It is a real privilege to be selected to manage the Campbell Rooms. A building that has offered so much to communities, schools, Scouts, youth groups and many other people for so many years. We are really excited about its continued use to offer opportunities for youth, communities and other organisations.’ – YMCA Somerset Coast Group
