National Trust Basecamps offer simple self catering accommodation.
A National Trust Basecamp is a bunkhouse offering simple self catering accommodation, not only for groups of volunteers taking part in conservation work but also for recreational, educational and corporate groups looking to escape the rat race of the city. Each bunkhouse is rich with its own unique history and offers the outdoor enthusiast an ideal base for exploring beautiful landscapes and unspoilt coastlines.
