Booked a Raft Building Session for a team building exercise. Great fun was had by all and the staff were fantastic, at hand to help and joined in which made everyone feel comfortable and safe! Would definitely recommend and consider again.

Corporate Raft Building - September 2018

Selected Oaker Wood Leisure as a corporate team building event. Booking the event was simple and easy. Oakerwood presented the activities at a pace and ability that not only matched the abilities of our rather diverse group, but also achieved the end goal of promoting personal and team confidence and growth. A fantastic day that we all thoroughly enjoyed at a great price.

Thorough instructions with continuous feedback from the instructors. Had so much fun. Would definitely do this activity again. Recommend anyone to try it- it’s so much fun. Lovely to have these activities on the doorstep that are such a reasonable price.

Sarah - Clay Pigeon Shooting - Aug 18

We stayed at Oakerwood for my sisters hen party. We had our own glamping village with our own sleeping pods, campfire,kitchen, bbq hut, showers and toilets. We did the Borne Obelisk and quad bikes activities which were great fun. The team who looked after us were lovely and really helpful. I highly recommend this place for families, friends or stag and hen parties

Natalie - Hen Weekend - Aug 18

I have been to many paintball sites around the UK and none come close to Oakerwood's professionalism. I would happily recommend this place to everyone, it makes Herefordshire worth visiting!
