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

Beautiful site but the toilets and showers were filthy.There were shared toilet and shower blocks which I feel unsafe for youngsters using them . The showers were full of hair ,the toilets were disgusting and considering this site is not by any means cheap. The staff said about noise at night but they had a very noisy party themselves one...

'Escape Camping' is the name given to the two pre erected canvas tents. They are filthy, damp, full of mildew and (at full occupancy) incredibly cramped. Our tent had muddy footprints on the beds and on the inside of the canvas. There were crisp packets, water bottles and sweet wrappers on the beds, not hidden under the beds but in... More

Stayed here I'm the main house, wasn't that impressed when we got there ad the facilities are really unclean and there was even mould growing on the wall.
