Hut Hire

Hiring Our Hut

Yes! We do rent our hut out on a hourly basis throughout the week, and for overnight stays as well for youth organisations (Scouts, Schools, Church Groups, DofE, Etc.)  We’re really lucky to have a busy Scout Hut.

The Main Hall

The Unisex Toilets and Shower

The Disabled Toilet and Shower

The Fire Pit and Benches (Bring your own wood)

The Field

We’re really fortunate to have our own parking (a rarity in Lyme Regis and Uplyme), and grounds for camping on – with Lyme Regis just a 40 minute walk away, down the river, for those staying at our hut. Within our hall, we’re able to provide tables and chairs to use.

The hut also has a kitchen as well which groups can use, with two ovens, a freezer and a fridge.

If you wish to enquire about using our hut, you can use the contact form here – it would be really helpful when enquiring if you could let us know about potential time and dates, what the hut will be used for, and how many will be using the hut. We have a quick Hut Hire FAQ below that might be able to answer some of your questions before you get in touch.

Quick Hut Hire FAQ

How much do you charge?

We charge from £8.50 per hour for hourly rates, which includes from the moment when you set up to the moment you lock up, and from £5 per person, per night, for those using the hut for overnight stays (hourly rate does not apply when staying overnight).

Will I have exclusive use of the hut and the grounds?

Pretty much! There might be times when the group might need to access its stores to get hold of equipment, but the leaders will do their best to be discreet. We will always let you know if there are any conflicts between bookings.

Will I have to sign a Hall Hire Agreement?

Yes, we’ll provide you with a Hall Hire Agreement to sign in advance of your use of the Scout Hut.

How many cars can you fit in the car park?

Around 12 cars.

What’s the size of the hall and field?

The hall is 12m x 8m, and the field is 30m x 40m (on an incline)

Are there any bookings that you will not take?

We are likely to decline bookings that either represent a conflict of interest to us as a Scout Group, or are likely to upset our neighbours (for example, we don’t normally take bookings for teenage parties). However, we approach each booking on a case by case basis and judge it pros and cons.

Can non-youth organisations stay overnight?

We’re not open for general camping, however, we will consider each request on a case by case basis.
