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!
