General

  • Peaceful site surrounded by lakes, on the edge of the New Forest
  • Activities including high ropes, climbing, abseiling and zipwiring
  • Play area, tennis, exercise trails and café

Set up camp for a night or several at Avon Tyrrell Outdoor Activity Centre in the New Forest, for guaranteed busy days among a wide range of foresty fun.

For among the outdoor adventures and field study activities here you can try high and low ropes, climbing and abseiling, archery, zipwire and heaps more under the eyes of its experienced instructors – or take yourself off under your own guidance for orienteering, treasure hunting, mountain biking and fishing in its lush surrounding lakes....

Happily, a café serving the likes of jacket potatoes, paninis etc is here too so that adventurers don't have far to forage when it comes to light bites, and if you need a day off from all the action the site also has a play area and free wifi. (A tennis court and Trim Trail points are around too if you really can't help yourself.)

The Avon Tyrrell amenities block is well equipped with toilets, hot showers, a baby-changing room, washing-up facilities and a launderette. A small shop is to hand for basic supplies, but both Bransgore and Burley are only two miles away if you need anything else – maybe see how fast you can run there and back...?

Please note

Facilities/activities including climbing, kayaking, high ropes and archery are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

  • Liked: 

    Ideal location for us for our first camping trip, we loved the idea of being able to have camp fires... we both had the best sleep we’ve had in ages on our stay. Lovely place to fully recharge your batteries...
    shower and toilet blocks were not too far away either and we’re clean and warm.
    Every staff member we spoke to was extremely helpful.

    Disliked: 

    The only things we would say was the cafe wasn’t open our entire trip but having said that we were slightly out of season and we pitched up in Scott’s pine camp- thw ground was hard with roots so difficult with pegs... having said that we improvised and carried on.

    Disliked: 

    On our second night there, we arrived back at the pitch and discovered a very large family gathering (60 plus) had appeared in the middle of the field, with a catering tent and loud music. We chose Avon Tyrell, and have many times before, for a quiet couple of nights in the middle of the forest so we weren't very happy. The duty site manager was massively harassed checking off the big groups arrivals, on his own. Fortunately, the place has two quite separate camping areas so we managed to get moved to the other which was quiet - bit of a nuisance having to pack away and re pitch but we met some other lovely campers so not all bad!
    Prob worth ringing Avon Tyrell directly to check whether they are expecting large groups before you book

    The campsite was nice and quiet, with plenty of space for the kids to play. On exploring the site we found loads of walks both on a off site.

    The site is in a great spot within close proximity (short drive) to the beaches and a very nice local pub!
