Try Air Rifle

1.5 hour air rifle activity session.

How does it work?

Learn how to load, aim and shoot an air rifle on our purpose built range. You'll use rifles with sights to shoot at both paper targets and more challenging rocker targets. You can take your target home as a memento.

Who are these activities for?

These activities are suitable for anyone aged eight or over. You have the option to book individual spaces on this session or, if no spaces have sold, you can book the session exclusively for your group of up to 12 people by selecting the "Private group" option. If you book the session exclusively we can relax the age restriction and you can bring children aged six or seven. If you have anyone under eight in your group at least one adult must take part.

As an outdoor activity centre, we go ahead whatever the weather! The only exception to this rule is lightning directly overhead, which we monitor very closely and rarely stops play for more than a few minutes. Make sure you bring a change of clothes if it's raining, wrap up warm if it's windy, and drink plenty of fluids if it's hot. Make an adventure of it!!!

Yes! We are now able to accept gift vouchers again. You may use your voucher on any instructor led activity that your voucher is valid for. If your voucher was due to expire after 22nd March 2020, we have automatically extended it by 18 months so your codes will still work for an online booking. 

All vouchers can be used for the value paid for them against any of our activities. 

We will need a completed copy of our medical declaration. Where possible please print it out and bring it with you. We will have copies available on site.

Well behaved dogs are welcome to join you onsite however unfortunately, they can't join you on any of our activity sessions other than frisbee golf. 


If you are bringing a dog with you, one of your party will have to not take part in the activity session to stay with the dog.


Yes! If you find an activity on a time and date that suits you, you are able to book for an exclusive group which means it will just be your group with the instructor. If you do this, once you have checked out, pop a note in the notes box to let us know its a stag or hen do and we'll make sure we're prepared. 


If your group is larger than our group sizes or if you are looking for a more bespoke package, specific activity or to add multiple activities or a catering option, check out our Stag and Hen webpage here - www.mendip.co.uk/stagandhen 

We can certainly arrange this activity for you. If you are booking for an educational/school group, please take a look at our dedicated webpage: https://www.mendip.co.uk/education

We go ahead with our activities whatever the weather so please wear light layers and bring a waterproof. 

Please make sure you have a long sleeve top/jumper for archery. 

Our activity centre is in the countryside and our target sport ranges can get muddy underfoot, especially if it has been wet. Please wear sturdy, closed toe shoes that you don't mind getting muddy (trainers, walking boots, wellies are all great). 

Archery, Air Rifles and Axe throwing all take place at Mendip Activity Centre. You can find us in the heart of the Mendip Hills at BS25 5PQ.

All of our activity sites have plenty of parking onsite. Parking is free of charge.

We are very fortunate to be situated in such a stunning location set in the Mendip hills. Unfortunately, this does come with its limitations. We have recently installed a lift in our main centre which allows disabled access to our cafe-bar. 


The paths leading to our onsite activities can be fairly muddy and uneven. Pushchairs/wheelchairs/mobility scooters may struggle depending on what part of the site they are trying to access. 


Please view our full accessibility statement here: www.mendip.co.uk/accessibility

You will receive a confirmation email from us once your booking has been made. Sometimes this email can end up in your junk folder, so please check there first if you can't find it. 


If you can't find a confirmation email, your online booking may not have been fully completed - please check whether the session you were trying to book is still available online. If it is, please try to make the booking again. If it's not, please contact us so that we can check what's happened.

Tobogganing
Christmas and Twilight tobogganing is sold out so we are unable to rearrange your session outside of your booked times.


Frisbee golf or recreational snowsports

We are likely to be able to change your start time at arrival as long as it is within our opening hours and on the same day.


Private session
We will start whenever you arrive but we are unlikely to be able to overrun.


Individual spaces on a session

We will do our best to fit you into the session at a point that does not disrupt it too much for other participants. If you are more than 10 minutes late, we're sorry but it is very unlikely we will be able to fit you into the session due to missing the safety and equipment briefing and kit up.
