What our customers say

Great day, 4 couples some of us hadn’t even picked up a gun, the guys were instructive, patient and entertaining, the scenery over the lake was stunning! We all had a really good day.

Dawn Day - Clay Pigeon Shooting - July 19

A group of ten of us did the clay pigeon shooting activity at this wonderful venue. The setting is wonderful and the staff could not have been more helpful. This is the second activity we have done here as a group and can't rate the place enough. The clay pigeon shooting itself was well organised, safe and above all somersetting that all of us could take part in and enjoy. Will definitely return. Thank You.

Family Clay Session - July 19

I organised a stag do at one of the Glamping camps and it was perfect, food and activities all taken care of by the staff who made for an excellent weekend. The accommodation is great and there are bbq and kitchen areas to use. The campfire was roaring all weekend. Would highly recommend anyone booking a stag to consider it, you’ll be in safe hands and have a great weekend.

Saturday we did our chosen activities – Code Breaking & Rafting. These were so well organised and fun, also great for big groups to bond and get to know one another. Big shout out to Chris and Pav, our amazing hosts for the day who managed to put up with 18 rather strong willed, hyper and hungover ladies! You guys were great and we can’t thank you enough for making it such a giggle.

I would like to begin this review with a huge THANK YOU to the Oaker Wood Team. We organised a weekend at the camp for our friends hen party – from the initial enquiries stage, all the way through to the weekend itself the team were beyond helpful. I spoke to many Glamping venues and most were proving inflexible in terms of people, activities and options. Oaker Wood has a very simple and organised set up, however the team were more than happy to make tweaks to the package to suit the needs of our group.

We did the codebreaker for my brother's 30th birthday as we wanted a family-friendly activity that provided both physical and mental components. All correspondence with the company was efficient and helpful. We were a mixed age group from 13-56 years old. Everyone absolutely loved the activity. It was like 6 team-bulding activities done as a competing between the two teams and then an escape room style code breaker at the end. It was really accessible whilst still being challenging. The reps were great and the setting is stunning and beautifully maintained. We'll be back to try out some of your other activities in the future!

Becky Florida - Family Code Breaker - July 19

Thank you for having us. We had a great time during visiting you. Our visually impaired and blind participants from the ICC camp truly enjoyed the experience.
