What our customers say

Great event that all 11 kids really enjoyed. Well organised and safety briefing was really clear and all the kids took note. Feedback from kids was really positive and even some shouts of ‘best party ever!’ My Son had a blast. Will definitely be returning to try out some of the other activities!

Kerry Rowlatt - Paintball Party -March 18

All in all I have been really impressed with Oakerwood, from enquiry and booking, right through to the day (with a snow postponement in the middle). Thank you for making our sons 10th birthday such a memorable one.

Rachel Lish - March 18

Our sons verdict - best birthday ever! We even had some less confident riders that were really nervous about joining in but the guys were great with them, jumping on the back of the quad and helping them to steer, in no time they were out on their own having an amazing time. By the end we had 8 very muddy, very happy children, all of whom want to come back, all the adults were pretty keen to get on a quad too!

As ever, Oaker Wood came up trumps with my son's paintballing party. Brilliantly organised, reasonably priced, with staff who are both completely professional & great fun. Would highly recommend!

Second visit within the year to Oaker Woods with the kids. Amazing family fun for us, last year it was paintballing, low ropes, this time quad biking, zip wire and high ropes. Quad biking an absolute favourite with all of us, hands down the most fun we have had as a family group. Completely recommend. Instructors get a big shout out from us. Only downside, we wish it was closer to home!!!!

Lisa Owen - Feb 2018

You were all so kind and patient with us all and I know for a fact that many of our group achieved far more than they thought possible when they were so far out of their comfort zones!

An excellent place, would recommend to anyone. We had a blast a few weeks ago, loads of activities to do, we loved the paintballing. Also the quad biking looked loads of fun.The staff were very friendly and very helpful which made the experience more fun. Will definitely be visiting again.

A wonderful outdoor pursuits centre located in a magnificent setting - away from it all. An ideal outing for all ages and for any size group, offering numerous activities from swinging through the air on the high ropes to quad biking, all under the supervision of a great team of qualified instructors.

We had a excellent time, the boys loved it . Lots of variation. Instructors were excellent and really friendly. Gave encouragement to those who were nervous but not pushing them if they really didn't want to do it.

Hereford U12 Rugby Team - Dec 2017

Our family of 4 visited on Thursday whilst staying in the area for half term. Had an excellent experience with friendly instructors. Lots of time on the bikes with fun and challenging ride around the woods. First time for all of us, boys loved it (14 & 17), we loved it. Will definitely be doing this again. Highly recommend it.
