I find it hard to rate Avon Tyrell. The accommodation is not great, I had no hot water for a shower in the morning and the paint on the ceiling was peeling. However the activities... read more

I find it hard to rate Avon Tyrell. The accommodation is not great, I had no hot water for a shower in the morning and the paint on the ceiling was peeling. However the activities were a lot of fun whilst teaching teamwork and making you push yourself. The instructors were excellent, they knew their stuff but also were involved... More

Having just returned from a lovely long weekend stay with my boyfriend we feel wonderfully relaxed. What a beautiful campsite and wonderful surroundings kept in great condition with friendly staff. Plenty of activities on offer if you were to take children. We throughly enjoyed the mountain biking and walks round the grounds. The facilities were great too, we never queued... More

Unfortunately like many of the other reviews here we also suffered from all sorts of noise. The first day and a half we had 2 tents next to us full of young men which were noisy to say the least and didn't really observe any etiquette or rules about noise. The camp is also under a flight path so overall... More

We stayed here on a Thursday, myself and my son were booked in a budget twin room in the main house, however we were upgraded to a lodge, we were over the moon as the lodges are amazing, in a beautiful wood setting, with kitchen, lounge patio door, hot showers and beds, the beds weren't that comfy but the place...

Got to sample some of the activities today at the Easter Egg Hunt. Good selection of things to do and the kids loved it all. My criticism comes to the price of drinks. £2.50 for a hot drink is extortionate, especially when it comes from a machine that is one step up from a vending machine. It was only about... More

Lovely site, rustic and pefect if you are a real camper..(woodland, muddy, uneven ground). Good facilities; clean shower/toilet block, water tap, washing up point. It was clean and we didnt have to wait to use but can picture in the summer it being busier and having to wait for a shower. Plenty to do on site and the surrounding areas.... More

We had a wonderfully relaxed family weekend away. The log cabin was cosy and warm, the perfect base with everything we expected to be there provided. We took bikes and enjoyed exploring the site as well as making use of the play area. We would thoroughly recommend booking onto an archery session. It was very good value for money.. Scott... More

Fantastic time had at Avon Tyrrell with four children (aged 7 to 10yrs) following the Halloween trail. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and so much to do, never a dull moment. The kids loved!! Thanks to all the staff working there, their dedication and friendly welcome made our day extra special - they are all brilliant!!

I would have given this review a terrrible but the boys that run the 3 activities on offer for our 9 and 12 year old were fantastic. Considering it's half term I think 3 activities over 3 days that were apparently suitable for our children was a bit poor. We payed a lot of money for the campsite and thought... More
