2019 Update - The Scout Hut has been renamed and is now 'Shackleton Lodge'
Shackleton Lodge is the larger of our two main accommodation buildings (it can also be booked for day events etc).
For normal residential use it can support a maximum group of 24 young people on the floor in the main hall, there are three side-rooms, one contains 4 bunk beds (sleeping 8), one has 3 bunk-beds (sleeping 6) and the other has two bunk-beds (sleeping 4).
For residential stays wholly within the building the maximum party size is therefore 42, this will not be exceeded under any circumstances due to fire safety regulations, but additional numbers camping outside on the glade area are not counted within this total.
At the rear of the building is a camping area, this is an open area that can accommodate a number of tents, when used together with the building this creates a very flexible residential arrangement, with the combination of the building and camping area.
The building is equipped with tables and chairs, and is heated by wall mounted electric fan heaters (no extra charge).
The kitchen is equipped with a fully certificated commercial gas cooker, and a full extraction system with gas safety interlock.
A full range of cooking equipment is provided, such as pots, pans, plates, mugs and utensils, sufficient to support 50 people, extra can be supplied upon request for larger events.
The kitchen is also equipped with a large fridge, large freezer and microwave.
Free Wifi is available within and around all of the buildings at Bushy Wood.
