Helpful Hints For Paintball

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. 

  • Wear old clothes that you do not mind getting dirty. Although we do provide overalls they cannot be guaranteed to keep your clothes clean (the paint does wash out).

  • Wear old footwear as they will get dirty.

  • On wet weather days waterproofs are recommended. These can be worn under our overalls to protect you from some of the mud.

  • On wet days we recommend spare clothes including footwear for your journey home.

  • We recommend that you bring gloves to wear as these will protect your hands during the games.

  • On cold days we recommend warm clothing. Multiple layers of clothing is best as it is easier to regulate your temperature.

  • If you wish to purchase more paint on the day you will need to bring cash as we do not have a card machine on site.

  • You can bring your own paintball gun and goggles to use on our site should you wish, please contact us first. The goggles and gun will need to be assessed for safety by your marshal on the day.

  • If you wish to bring your own paint you can but your whole group need to be on our 300 ball package.

  • There will be tea, coffee and squash available free of charge, if you think you will want anything else you will need to bring it with you as there is no food or drink that you can purchase on site.

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

Josh - Stag weekend - July 19

What an amazing place Oaker Wood is...upon arrival our camp site was immaculate, camp fire was ready to go and staff were brilliant. Ended up doing quad biking, rafting and paint balling and each activity was brilliantly put together by the team. Had a right laugh. It’s been a fantastic weekend in an amazing place. Would 100% recommend this place and I really hope we all come back in the future.

Luke's Stag weekend - July 19

Within our group of 11 we had two pregnant girls who were able to get involved with the target shooting and then watched on as the girls completed the code breaker tasks. Lunch was simple but great. I will 100% be back again, I was one of the pregnant girls and I was so jealous of the girls activities I want to come back and get on those high ropes among all the other activities I’d love to do there. The activity day truly made the hens weekend so thanks so much. Would 100% recommend to people if all ages and looking to book for all occasions. If in doubt about the activities to book, the staff will 100% be able to help. Can’t wait to come back guys!

Maxine - Hen Weekend - June 19

What can I say about Oaker. Such accommodating staff when booking, easy to communicate and organise everything with. Staff super friendly before booking and on the day of the hen’s activities. The group of us booked in for target shooting which was great fun and code breaker. We had the most amazing day made super special by the staff and the actual activities we picked. There are sooo many different activities there is something to suit everyone. Thanks for an amazing day. Maxine

Thank you to all of the Oaker Wood team for a fantastic stag do! All the staff there were really friendly and went the extra mile to make sure that everybody was having a good time. Loved the glamping village, we will return soon!

James Hatton - Stag Weekend - June 19

Absolutely awesome weekend. Highly recommend it. The team there are fantastic. Very well organised. Accommodation was comfy and warm, and hot showers. Even if the weather is wet there's a lovely Scandinavian bbq hut for you to eat, chat and keep warm altogether. Great campfire area for you to enjoy on those dry evenings. The fact that the 'village camp' was ours exclusively meant we could do our own thing and not have to worry. We did the quad trekking and code breaker activities which were hilarious... Who knew we could be so competitive. Can't wait for another chance to get back and try something else! 5 stars to Oakerwood.
