We visited Avon Tyrrell for a 2 night camping stay in the 'ready2camp' tent, as we have booked 2 tents later on in August for the extended family we thought we'd just take the 3 younger kids as a trail run! So glad we did! As campers you get 2 sessions in the pool, great however I wish the morning... 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. Some of the houses features are very beautiful like the ceilings and fireplace in the main room, however this is somewhat ruined by the facilities they were forced to install overtime. They... More

We spent a night camping at the lake. Great facilities. Lovely walk around lake and in the woods. Excited to see open air swimming pool. But! There was rubbish everywhere and the shower/toilet block was disgusting. I appreciate I have my fellow campers to thank for this, but is there really no cleaning staff at all on the weekend?

Four families had a great time together at this picturesque campsite alongside the lake. There are loads of activities to enjoy, from kayaking to zip lining. The facilities are clean and close to the camping area. The only downsides, were the constant jets overhead (it's on the Bournemouth and Southampton airport flight paths), and the unisex facilities, which the girls... More

Just come back from a couple of days at Avon Tyrell. Nothing posh but ideal family fun. It was a friends 50th and wanted to find somewhere that catered for a number of friends with children that had activities; swimming pool, bike hire, climbing wall, zip wire, campfires. Whether you are camping, caravaning, want to stay in a lodge or... More

Just returned from a weekend with my two children. I shared a room with a friend and her children and everything about this place was fantastic! The room was clean and comfortable, the showers and toilets were always clean and warm. The staff were very friendly and nothing was ever any trouble. The food was lovely and there was plenty....

We camped down by the lake for a few nights with family. The campsites aren't marked so you can pitch anywhere, the campsite was pretty quiet for most of our stay. You pay per person so it is good value as we were not penalised for taking a large tent for 3 of us. The toilet and shower block was... More
