What our customers say

What a fabulous time we had at Oaker Wood as part of 50th birthday celebrations. 23 of us split between the quad bikes, high ropes and clay shooting and each group thought they had the best experience.....quite an achievement. The staff were friendly, professional and supportive while the activities were exciting and fun, all set in a glorious location.

Sally Ledger - Jan 19

The instructors were fantastic with the boys, giving clear instructions of what was expected from them and rules of safety around the guns. Overall, Oaker Wood is just the place for 10 energetic boys to have a morning outdoors and I now have a very happy birthday boy with memories of a wonderful party!!!!!!

Organised a quad biking party for my 9 year old daughter and her friends. They had a wonderful time and the guys running it were fantastic with them, giving them encouragement when they first started and getting them more confidant with the quad as they got on. Could not fault the day. Very helpful there and would definitely recommend.
