Fantastic and memorable experience for my sons 12th birthday. The children loved every minute and were very well looked after. The set up was so exciting and spectacular and the staff were so lovely and informative. The children are still all talking about it now (weeks later) and saying thank you for inviting us. Thank you Oaker Wood Leisure!!! My son wants to do it every year :).

Charlotte Cable - Paintball Party - Sept 2019

Brought a stag group for paintball , great day made incredible by the awesome staff. The games were well thought out and the staff made it a brilliant experience , with short breaks in between games with soft drinks, tea & coffee. The price is very reasonable indeed and when you take in to account the quality of the venue and the customer service we received this is an incredibly cheap activity and we will certainly be back. Well done guys !!!

50th Birthday Fun - 14 friends came to Oakerwood as part of my 50th birthday celebrations where we all took part in Code breaking. The setting was fantastic, the activities so much fun and superbly organised. Jack looked after us on the day & was fab. If you are in the area & want to do something different/fun I’d highly recommend Oaker Wood.

Alex - Stag Weekend - Sept 19

May I say how much we enjoyed our paint ball party experience at Oaker Wood and our host’s Georgie and Pav were fabulous at seeing that everyone was looked after and had a great time. Please pass on our thanks once again to them. We will most definitely be back for more adventures with you in the future.

Lynne Luke - Paintball Party - Sept 19

Very organised (for a small organisation it puts the larger venues to shame in term of their professionalism and friendliness). The instructors are excellent; thorough on safety, easily connected with the kids, helpful to me with all the hassles relating to a kids party, making sure everyone had a good time. I think the best thing though was watching the kids fly down the zip wire upside down screaming. None of them will forget that birthday party!!!!!

Gareth Huxtable - 9yr old Birthday - Sept 19
