What our customers say

Very good centre staff, incredible communication. The instructors were very good at including everyone, and pushing them to everyone's individual limits. Campfire was a brilliant way of getting whole wave to bond together and everyone to join in.

NCS The Challenge - Summer 17

A quick note to say Thank You for hosting our group this weekend. Georgia has fed back how great your staff were in adapting their language and approach to the YP we had on this NCS, particularly to the staff who played football and cards with the YP, it’s simple things like this that show the YP they are valued and helps it run smoothly.

Rachael Clarke - NCS Leicestershire

Safety was paramount, but so was fun and the boys had that in bucketloads. Fantastic experience beginning to end, I really hope we can go back sometime and try another activity when the boys are a bit older.

Rachel Read - Junior Paintball - Nov 18

The whole place is breathtakingly beautiful. The facilities were great, and nothing was too much for the staff. There is everything you could want need and more. The staff were very knowledgeable, safe and fun at the activities and I honestly could not recommend this place enough! I would go back in a heartbeat, and now only want to get engaged so I can have my hen party here!

Hen weekend - Oct 18

Had a great day out paintballing with our family, something we will definitely do again, great staff.

Robert Davies - Family Paintball - 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.
