Kipling Lodge (previously named Cub Hut) is the smaller 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 14 young people on the floor in the main hall, aside from which there are three side-rooms, two contain 2 single beds (sleeping 2 in each bedroom), one contains a single bed (sleeping 1), this side-room has a sink with hot water, and is wheelchair accessible.
At the rear of the building is Kipling Glade, this is a large area that can accommodate a large 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. (please note the outdoor cooking shelter close to Shackleton Lodge is no longer included with this building).
For residential stays the maximum sleeping capacity in the building is 20, this will not be exceeded under any circumstances due to fire safety regulations, however anyone camping outside on the glade area is not counted in this total, the building can support much higher numbers if the camping glade is used as well.
The building is equipped with tables and chairs, and is heated by wall mounted electric infrared and fan heaters, with underloor heating in the toilet and wetroom (no extra charge).
The kitchen is equipped with a fully certificated electric gas cooker, with a full extraction system.
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 fridge, freezer and microwave.
Free Wifi is available within and around all of the buildings at Bushy Wood.
