Raft Building

A favourite amongst summer hen & stag parties, especially those staying in our Glamping Village. Set on our picturesque woodland lake you can try out your scout & girl guide knot tying skills to build a vessel strong enough to transport you across the lake.

Raft Building for Stag and HensGreat competitive fun on the water. Groups between 8 and 12 people will build one raft working as a team, larger groups compete to build 2 or more rafts.
Tug of war, races and general mayhem on the water. Come dressed as pirates for some great Stag photo opportunities of the Groom walking the plank!

What our customers say

The whole place is breathtakingly beautiful. The facilities were great, and nothing was too much for the staff. There is everything you could want need and more. The staff were very knowledgeable, safe and fun at the activities and I honestly could not recommend this place enough! I would go back in a heartbeat, and now only want to get engaged so I can have my hen party here!

Hen weekend - Oct 18

Even in a slightly cold, rainy October weekend Oaker Wood was fantastic for a stag do. There were 16 of us, well housed in the cabins which were pleasantly warm and long enough beds to sleep even the taller members of our stag group. The facilities were great, with everything we needed to cook and BBQ all our meals. The warm showers were greatly appreciated at the end of the day. I think it's safe to say the fire pit was our favourite feature, keeping up all warm throughout the weekend. Would highly recommend.

Joel Rawlinson - Stag Weekend - Oct 18

Organised for my stag do, had a fantastic day. Well organised, staff were friendly and fun and the activities (paintball and Quad Bike Trekking) were great fun!

Tom Davies - Stag Weekend - Sept 18

We stayed at Oakerwood for my sisters hen party. We had our own glamping village with our own sleeping pods, campfire,kitchen, bbq hut, showers and toilets. We did the Borne Obelisk and quad bikes activities which were great fun. The team who looked after us were lovely and really helpful. I highly recommend this place for families, friends or stag and hen parties

Just wanted to pass on a massive thank you for helping us make this weekend such a success for Jonny's Stag do. Everybody commented on how amazing the venue was, the food was good and all of the staff we came into contact during the activities were really engaging and really added to the whole experience.

James Whitehouse - Stag Weekend - Aug 18

We spent the weekend here for a hen do of about 20 people. Such a great place - the facilities are excellent. We had loads of private space for the group and the staff even come and get your camp fire going for you. Would wholly recommend this place for a group get together of any sorts!

Hen Weekend - Jul 18

The set-up of the "camp" was ideal. There's a large communal enclosed area for cooking and relaxing, with a fridge that is a good size to hold a weekends supply of beer, plus some food. If you're looking for a place to hold your stag or hen weekend then I'd give Oaker Wood serious consideration. I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

Steve West - Stag Weekend - July 18

Tthe activities were great and the set-up you have with the pods, communal area and BBQ room made for a superb weekend. Thanks to all.
