What our customers say

I booked to stay at oakerwood wood for my sisters hen weekend- there were 18 of us hens and everyone had a fantastic weekend!!!!!!!! I can not fault the accommodation, activities or staff - everything was perfect and exceeded my expectations!

We took 22 of my son’s friends and family paintballing to celebrate his 13th birthday, and it was a blast! The paintball supervisor was very good at explaining each shooting area, tactics and so on, he was also very good with the kids, all of whom were aged between 12 and 13. The paintball supervisor was firm, but not over firm, he kept it on the side of fun at all time while not allowing anything unsafe…very well done!

We were there for part of my friends 50th birthday celebrations. What an outstanding morning. Both of out instructors were brilliant. Funny and serious they certainly made the whole thing a real pleasure. We had a couple of ladies with us and although we thought this would not be their 'thing after a couple of minutes tuition with Gerald and Mark they were soon into the swing. A fantastic place so welcoming and friendly but very professional. I would thoroughly recommend these guys...

Just a quick email to say a big thank you from everyone here at the RNC for your time with us last week. We all had a great day and was so impressed with your facilities and how good your staff were with the Visually Impaired students and in general.

Cannot rate this place highly enough. We took our 9 year old for his birthday party along with 10 of his friends in a junior quad biking experience. They guys who taught and accompanied the group were incredibly friendly yet professional. Safety was first class. Cannot believe that this place has so many amazing experiences going on. Will definitely be back for more parties in the future. Thank you Oaker Wood.

Katrina Clegg - Junior Quads - March 17

Great Activities - lovely people. The activities were challenging and fun - we had a great morning climbing trees etc! What really stood out for me was the staff, they were really engaged with the group and made it loads of fun. They learned all our names - there were 14 of us - and encouraged us and worked hard to make sure we enjoyed the morning as much as possible.
