The Zip Wire at Avon Tyrrell is an adrenaline charged experience as you travel at high speeds over our stunning lake. Climb 30 feet up to your starting platform, but make sure you don’t close your eyes, or you will miss the amazing scenery as you zip from up in the trees, down to water level. Our Zip wire is 60 metres long and is an exhilarating experience you will never forget.

"Thank you very much for our weekend. It went very well indeed and everyone had a great time, especially my wife. Special mention for my wife's aunt who shinned up the pole for the zip wire at the age of 75 and her husband, disabled with MS who had a great time on the four wheel motorised mountain bike - which enabled him to get to see her flying along the wire. It was a very memorable weekend."
