What our customers say

Very organised (for a small organisation it puts the larger venues to shame in term of their professionalism and friendliness). The instructors are excellent; thorough on safety, easily connected with the kids, helpful to me with all the hassles relating to a kids party, making sure everyone had a good time. I think the best thing though was watching the kids fly down the zip wire upside down screaming. None of them will forget that birthday party!!!!!

Gareth Huxtable - 9yr old Birthday - Sept 19

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you especially, Dawn, Georgia and Brooksey for today, not only were they helpful and lovely to both of us but they were absolutely fantastic with Thomas. Tom really enjoyed himself as did I! We will 100% be back really soon!

Chloe Morris - May Half Term 2018

A wonderful outdoor pursuits centre located in a magnificent setting - away from it all. An ideal outing for all ages and for any size group, offering numerous activities from swinging through the air on the high ropes to quad biking, all under the supervision of a great team of qualified instructors.

Louise - Jan 18

Fantastic place, fantastic weekend, fantastic facilities, fantastic activities, fantastic people.

Alison - Hen weekend - September 2016

The team are brilliant. Everything is very personal and they bend over backwards to help you out. The activities are really well run and great fun. A good value professional set up. I would thoroughly recommend using Oaker Wood if you have the option.

March 2016

What a wonderful site. From glamping to paintball via high ropes and clay pigeon shooting this place has it all. Beautifully set in a woodland site with plenty of space this is the perfect place for small groups and large. While we were there they also hosted a junior rugby team and a hen party- truly versatile and manages to feel private throughout.

March 2016

Ideal for kids and young groups, don't expect to stay clean. Instructors are excellent and very helpful. Everyone had a great time

John - Sept 2015

Overall I have to say that Oaker Wood is a perfect venue - however it is by far the staff that make it. Nothing is too much trouble, they have the right balance between supporting you and pushing you to overcome your fears, and they are friendly with a sense of humour! Thank you!

IHG - Corporate Camp - Oct 2015

A fab place, staffed by truly nice and friendly people who definitely work hard and ensure you have a fun rewarding time.

Hen Party - Aug 2015

Please could you pass on my thanks to all your staff for an excellent three days. My group is not always the easiest but your staff were amazing. There is nothing I could of asked for to have been done any differently. Thank you very very much for all your help and we hope to return in the future.
