We have 2 completely separate Glamping Villages both sleeping up to 60 students. You can book each camp exclusively for your school.
Both Camps are set amongst mature trees and positioned in a beautiful secluded spot overlooking the sun setting over the Welsh mountains. Designed to give a wilderness feel without removing too many of your creature comforts.
Accommodation is in Wooden Glamping Pods each sleeping between 4 and 8 on bunk beds. Pods have electric lighting and heaters for the colder months. In one of the Villages winding paths, lit by fairy lights at night lead through the trees to each Pod.
Each Camping village has a covered communal dining area where you can opt for catered/self catered or a mixture of the two. All cooking equipment & crockery is provided together with a barbecue, gas oven, microwave, & toaster for cooking.
At the heart of each camp area is a fire circle, with fixed tiered benches allowing plenty of room for your group to sit around the fire.
We have a Nordic style Barbecue hut so should the weather turn wet you can toast marsmallows and sing camp fire songs in comfort.
We also have a wooden chalet style Activity Hut which can be used for evening activities and games and quizes in wet weather.
Each village has its own toilets and hot showers so its easy to warm up after a wet rafting session!
Costs of our residential activity camps vary depending on number of nights, catering options and choice of activities.
We had one camp village with pods to ourselves which made it easier to allow the pupils to be under our supervision during free time which was good! The staff are very friendly and very approachable and most importantly child friendly. Hopefully this will be the first of more visits planned by our secondary school. Cheers Oaker Wood
Holte School - Oct 17
First time of taking out school pupils to Oaker Wood. The pupils stay in camping pods which I thought were quite accommodating and warm with heaters that automatically switch on if the temperature goes below 18 degrees. The site itself is very impressive with an array of activities to suit all ages and abilities spread over the site.

I wanted to thank you and the rest of the team at Oaker for another fantastic weekend. All the students are still buzzing from the activities and again we were looked after brilliantly.

The food is plentiful and delicious ("this is the best curry ever", said several boys), and the activities of adrenaline high ropes and paintball are perfect for the needs of active lads.

Difficult as it may seem, the Oaker Wood experience was even better this time than last year. With the newly-built wooden pods, the boys had heated accommodation and no wind or rain could unsettle their night's sleep.
The camp remains a magical place, with the fairy lights and firepit. Even the compost toilet has become part of the legend!
