Experience the great outdoors along with the peace and tranquility our Bermondsey Huts site can offer. Bring your own tents or sleep in the huts themselves. The Bermondsey Huts camp site offers a wonderful opportunity for time away from the madding crowd.
You can have a quiet, restful time, soaking up the sun and enjoying the country air or you could go for energetic hikes, sporting activities and nature studies. In the evening enjoy time around a camp fire with a time of worship or just sit and enjoy the sounds of the night.
There are many good walks (and public houses) in this area of outstanding natural beauty. Local towns provide the usual attractions for sport and entertainment. Those who wish to include an explicitly religious dimension are invited to take part in the church life of the Benedictine Monastery that can be seen from the Huts, one mile across the valley to the North.
What do you bring?
- Sleeping bags/and or bedding
- Washing up kit, inc washing up liquid, dish cloths, tea towels and washing brush

What will we find there?
You can think of the Huts either as very comfortable, ‘hard-roofed tents’ or ‘very basic buildings’ depending on your expectations! The only electricity is a solar-charged battery system (installed in September 2016) to run the fridge, lighting and a couple of mains sockets (only very low power – not for electric motors or heaters!) and USB ports for charging mobiles. There is a mains water supply, but it is not suitable for drinking.
In accordance with the great respect for created things and in line the famous rule of St Benedict (480-540) the monks of Worth Abbey like to share and make available to others the estate on which they live. Since the 1930s the monks have made the Bermondsey Huts available to groups of people who would benefit from an inexpensive holiday or retreat in the countryside.
