A Unique & Special Place
Avon Tyrrell Outdoor Activity Centre is situated in the idyllic setting of the New Forest and is part of the national youth work charity UK Youth. The Centre provides residential and day visit facilities and activities for all groups of people.
Avon Tyrrell is situated in the heart of the New Forest. The centre is surrounded by 65 acres of its own, beautiful grounds near Burley, perfect for a bit of sweet singletrack and XC riding!
The campsite is only a 2 minute walk from the main event area, so you’re never too far from the action! If you’d prefer to stay in the comfort of the Avon Tyrrell house itself, you will be even closer to the main events, less than a minutes walk! There are also a limited number of Scandinavian style wooden lodges available, which are also only a small distance from the event area.
Please contact Avon Tyrrell for enquiries regarding booking rooms in the house or lodge only. For enquiries regarding regarding the Big Bike Bash please contact email@example.com
The house and lodges need to be booked directly through Avon Tyrrell, though camping is included in the cost of your ticket. Contact the house on 01425 672347 or email firstname.lastname@example.org . Don't forget to mention you are attending the Big Bike Bash!
Showers and Toilets
There will be extra toilets and showers provided to supplement those already in place. The toilets will be both in the main arena and the camping area.
Access to Avon Tyrrell is Available All Year Round
At Avon Tyrrell, we have two purpose built Mountain Biking tracks taking you through the forest areas of site. Both tracks are approximately one kilometre long and looped.
We also have a full loop that takes you around the site.
There is Mountain Biking available for every ability level from complete novice to intermediate and we also have a small ‘black’ loop for expert riders.
Mountain Biking is accessible in a number of forms:
- Pay and Play – bring your own bike and ride the courses. Purchase a ticket from reception and you can use the track all day.
- Guided Sessions – Avon Tyrrell offers guided skills sessions with qualified Mountain Bike instructors.
- Residential Guests can hire bikes (up to 14 at a time). Please note, this MUST be arranged before your visit so that we can ensure there is a member of staff available to fit your bikes, sign them out and see them back in.
- A pump and gravity track and some north-shore in the wiggly woods, part paid for by the previous Big Bike Bash events.
