What our customers say

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a wonderful day today. Many of the participants (including me!) were completely out of their comfort zone, but you all made us feel welcome, challenged and supported.

Emma Martin - Hereford 6th Form - Oct 18

We had a mixed group of adults and children (9 years old upwards) doing some of the adrenalin activities. We all really enjoyed the morning - the staff were very encouraging and ensured that we were all ok doing the activities!

Jenny Hall - Adrenalin Exp - Oct 18

On the Saturday we Quad Biked in the rain, which was incredible fun and then spent the afternoon paintballing when the rain had subsided. The quality of the paintballing facilities and scenery greatly exceeded all of our expectations.

Joel Rawlinson - Stag Weekend - Oct 18

Even in a slightly cold, rainy October weekend Oaker Wood was fantastic for a stag do. There were 16 of us, well housed in the cabins which were pleasantly warm and long enough beds to sleep even the taller members of our stag group. The facilities were great, with everything we needed to cook and BBQ all our meals. The warm showers were greatly appreciated at the end of the day. I think it's safe to say the fire pit was our favourite feature, keeping up all warm throughout the weekend. Would highly recommend.

Joel Rawlinson - Stag Weekend - Oct 18

Can I just say a huge thank you to you and all of your team, each year we come to Oaker Wood and it remains a highlight for everyone in Year 6 including myself and Mrs Creber. The week is a sensational week not just because of the activities but for me the sense of family. Most of the core staff remain with you which makes it special as many outdoor centres have a high turn over of staff which doesn't allow the continuity which your place naturally does. So once again a brilliant week really can't wait to come again next year.

Jon Westwood - Wyche Primary - Oct 18

Our children had a fabulous time and haven't stopped talking about their stay with you last week. Staff too were very complimentary about your staff and activities. This was the first time we have travelled so far afield and would love to return. As our children are grouped Y5 and 6 together we would only be looking to visit again in 2 years time.

Christine Friar - Creeting St Mary School - Oct 18

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for a great weekend, your staff and facilities were amazing and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Joel Rawlinson - Stag Weekend - Oct 18

From what I hear the weekend was excellent and despite poor weather, you all kept the young people in very high spirits as we had them all raving about the weekend as they came onto Phase 2!

Leo Williams - Delivery Officer NCS programme

We have just been for two nights for my Dad’s 60th birthday. It was a party of 14 adult couples. We had a great time, the facilities were great and the staff could not have been any more helpful. We did clay pigeon shooting and low ropes/ codebreaking and it was great fun for all ages. Would definitely go again.

Hannah Robbins - Sept 18

The activities we did (including high and low rope challenges, raft building and quad biking) were excellent fun and really encouraged our young people to get stuck in! The employees were brilliant- I would strongly recommend this place for team building activities, the staff are very flexible and cater to your every need!
