What our customers say

Thank you for having us. We had a great time during visiting you. Our visually impaired and blind participants from the ICC camp truly enjoyed the experience.

Aniko Klein - ICC UK - July 19

What a fabulous time we had at Oaker Wood as part of 50th birthday celebrations. 23 of us split between the quad bikes, high ropes and clay shooting and each group thought they had the best experience.....quite an achievement. The staff were friendly, professional and supportive while the activities were exciting and fun, all set in a glorious location.

Michelle Morris - June 18

We took 35 girls on a very cold day but they didn't notice the weather as they got muddier and muddier. They absolutely loved everything.

I visited with a group of deaf children too who can present a challenge in terms of communication but the staff at Oaker Wood rose to that challenge exceptionally well and did themselves proud looking after our youngsters who ranged in age from 14-20. Brilliant!!!

19 Beaver Scouts + Leaders enjoyed a fantastic camp at Oakerwood. The oakerwood staff were fantastic. They even did the catering for us and it was well worth it for the price so we could spend our time watching the Beaver Scouts enjoy their time on the Zip Wire, challenges/games in puzzlewood and on the Low Ropes Course. We will certainly go back time and time again. A BIG thank you from all the Beaver Scouts.

I think Oaker Wood is the ideal location for touring Mini & Junior rugby teams with the perfect combination of an easy to get to location, range of age appropriate activities and clued up staff. Thank you for making our tour so memorable. I’m sure we’ll be back next year.

We've just got back from other half's birthday weekend - what an absolutely fantastic place. Hired a glamping village and it was perfect. Staff were great, there if we needed them but left us alone to get on with it.

The course for making a cob oven at "Oaker Wood" was very informative ,what made it extra special was being with nature in lovely woodlands,with a great bunch of people,&being tutored every step of the way by Mathew Lloyd so expertly.
