Raft Building

A favourite amongst summer hen & stag parties, especially those staying in our Glamping Village. Set on our picturesque woodland lake you can try out your scout & girl guide knot tying skills to build a vessel strong enough to transport you across the lake.

Great competitive fun on the water. Groups between 8 and 12 people will build one raft working as a team, larger groups compete to build 2 or more rafts.

Tug of war, races and general mayhem on the water.

Come dressed as pirates for some great Stag photo opportunities of the Groom walking the plank!

Mike Clark - Stag Weekend - May 17

Absolutely amazing place, couldn't recommend it highly enough. I've just got back from my hen do weekend (paintballing & quad biking) and loved every minute. The amount of effort, care and attention shown by the staff is lovely.

Fiona Raffan - Hen Weekend - May 17

I would firstly like to thank everyone that made this weekend possible, it was amazing from start to finish, the activities were great fun and the staff were on top form all day, making the weekend more enjoyable.

Fiona Raffan - Hen Weekend - May 17

Thank you for everything! The weekend was absolutely amazing, Jessica had a fabulous time as did all the hens. We can not fault Oaker Wood for accommodation activities or staff. The whole experience was amazing, Mikey and Mick were absolutely brilliant and thank you to both of them for keeping and eye on us!

Joella Angus - Hen Weekend - April 17

Myself and six mates on a stag do visited Oaker Wood for a day of quad biking and target shooting and it was absolutely superb. The staff were really friendly and accommodating throughout and the activities themselves were great fun. The quad bike lads even took the stag and a couple of others out for a bonus run. Highly recommended!

Gary - Stag Weekend - Feb 2017

The accommodation and facilities were great! Completely perfect for the event, great set up and very private! The BBQ hut was a fantastic feature that we thoroughly enjoyed, but we did spend most of our time around the fire. It was far better than I could have anticipated.

Will Langer - Stag Weekend - Oct 16

I can't think of anything negative about the trip at all... we just wish you were closer to Leeds! Thanks folks.

Tom Airey - Sat Weekend - Oct 16

First of all, a big thank you to everyone involved at Oaker Wood! What an awesome weekend!

Chris Davies - Stag Weekend - Sept 16

Well... what a weekend! Went for a friend's stag do and we were not disappointed! Awesome service from excellent and friendly staff, providing a camp upon arrival all ready and set for the weekend. Not a single issue throughout the whole time. Quad Biking & Target Shooting activities were both great fun with excellent instructors. If anyone reading this is even remotely considering Oaker Wood Leisure, just go for it! You will not be disappointed!
