Low Ropes Helpful Hints

Below is a list of helpful hints intended to make your experience with us as enjoyable as possible. Please ensure that all of your group are aware of these hints, as inappropriate clothing can ruin the session.

We recommend you plan to arrive about 15 minutes prior to your booking time. If you arrive late, your session will not be extended to accommodate your lateness. 

• Make sure you wear comfortable clothing that does not restrict your movements. There is a good chance that your clothes will get a bit muddy, you may wish to bring some spare clothes for your journey home.

• We do not recommend wearing denim jeans – if they get wet they become heavy and have little to no insulation properties.

• Footwear should be comfortable and supportive. Trainers and walking boots are good, if the weather is or has been bad then wellington boots. Flip-flops are not advisable as they offer no protection for your feet.

• On wet weather days waterproofs are advisable as is spare footwear to travel home in.

• On cold days hats and gloves are advisable.

• There are mosquitoes on site during the summer so insect repellent is advised if you are prone to being bitten.

• We can provide tea, coffee and squash free of charge. There is no shop on site so if you require anything else you will need to bring it with you.

My Daughters Best Party EVER!!! This weekend my daughter had her 10th Birthday party with you quad biking. All 8 children had a fantastic time and all want to come again. It was very well organised, children were safe at all times, the staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. I would highly recommend quad biking. I think it is worth every penny and we will be back again. Keep up the good work.

Fantastic day had by all the boys, they really enjoyed paintballing. They got to play 4 games in the two hours they were there. The staff were great and explained every game to the boys. Super birthday party for a thirteen year old.

My family and I had an excellent time quad biking. All four of us were grinning from ear to ear the entire time. My kids (10 & 12) will never forget this experience!

Neil Morris - Behind Bars - Oct 19

We had the most amazing weekend here! The owners and staff are lovely and accommodating. It’s very organised from booking to leaving and Dave who looks after you when you’re there is brill. We all loved it - the communal areas are perfect for big groups. The big fire pit, barbacue hut and eating area are perfect. We had the most fun on the krypton trail - fun for all ages. Our ages ranged from 1-70! We all loved it so much we are making it an annual event! Highly recommend this hidden gem if you love the outdoors but want to sleep in a warm bed!

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 :).

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.
