AIR RIFLES

WOODLAND FRISBEE GOLF

TWILIGHT TOBOGGANING

The ultimate personal challenge; step out of your comfort zone to receive a thrilling mix of emotions - and afterwards, an uncontrollable urge to do it all again. 

Air rifle

Our outdoor covered rifle range is nestled in the woods. Develop your skill level through games, challenges and fun targets to help improve your shot accuracy and consistency.

Archery

Our floodlit archery range allows for a great introduction to traditional archery. Archery requires patience, concentration and a good sense of humour. 

Archery Active

Our very own activity, a combination of paintballing, archery and dodgeball. Our brand new floodlit range has an apocalyptic feel; perfect for all groups. 

Assault course

Our assault course is based at our watersports site. A series of assault-course, army style challenges are focused on team building, personal challenges, and good fun in the mud and water!

Axe

Axe throwing is one of the coolest new sports out there!  It's all about technique over strength and is the perfect activity for having a laugh and letting off a bit of steam.

Bushcraft

With 200 acres of ancient woodland our site has plenty of clearings to learn the ultimate bushcraft and survival skill sessions. Shelters, fires, knifework, flora and fauna, the possibilities are endless. 

Canoeing

Our large open canoes can be used by one, two, or three people. Originally used by North Americans, they were designed for exploring and hunting. Nowadays, canoeing is a test of skill, balance, communication and teamwork.

Caving

The Mendip Hills are famous for their huge network of caves. Sandford Levy is a cave right onsite at our activity centre, perfect for a gentle introduction to caving. Or, meet us in Burrington Combe and we’ll take you on a more sporting trip crawling, squeezing, climbing and exploring underground!

Climbing

Our very own limestone quarry, Sandford quarry, is the perfect epic location to learn the art of climbing. Climbing is possibly our biggest confidence-boosting activity and nothing quite beats the buzz of conquering an epic rock face! 

Frisbee

Mendip's 18 Hole Frisbee Golf Course, one of only 35 in the country, winds through beautiful woodland and over rolling Mendip hill tops with stunning views. 

Enjoy the outdoors, get active and have fun trying something new with family and friends.

Frisbee Golf is suitable for anyone over six years. Younger children are welcome to share your disc and play for free. Plus, every round of frisbee golf comes with a free Yeti Hunt!

Kayak

Our private section of the River Yeo based at Hewish is a great place to learn to kayak. Kayaks are individual boats and you use a paddle with two blades. Our friendly, qualified instructors will use fun, mini-games and challenges to build skills and learn the next kayaking strokes, whilst exploring a stunning nature spot. 

Orinteering

Our permanent orienteering course is a great introduction to this addictive sport. In this self-led activity you will use a map to find your way between the points in order. Race against the clock or each other to add a competitive element! 

Raft

This is a creative activity; use your ingenuity to turn a pile of poles, rope and barrels into a raft to keep you and your crew afloat! Race your raft and complete the challenges before using your raft as a floating platform for jumping off.

Air r
Skiing

Skiing is the sport for adrenaline seekers, nature lovers and travellers. You can learn to ski on our dry ski slope and then take your newly learned skills all over the world. Whether you want to gently take in the views, race down the slope or constantly challenge yourself, skiing is for you.

Snowboarding

With a board strapped to two feet, snowboarding has roots in surfing and skateboarding. Racing down the slope, feeling free and jumping through the air, everyone should try snowboarding at least once!

SUP

Start off with kneeling down and then before you know it you'll be an expert standing, jumping and playing around on your large inflated paddle board. Awesome fun!

Tobogganing

Our flood-lit, outdoor toboggan slope is great fun all year round, whatever the weather. Aimed at children between 4 and 12, exclusive sessions mean adults can take part and enjoy the thrill of rushing down the slope on their own Zibob toboggan.
