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

Great place great staff,and great location as plenty of space for what ever the occasion from stag/hen or just a quieter trip with friends or family. Made to feel very welcome with lots of activities on offer we went as a stag party and did quad bikes and clay shooting both highly recommended and well run and up to date facilities. Many thanks guys for all your hard work will be back again some time

Nigel - Stag Party - Sept 2020

I booked a stay at the Oaker Wood Glamping site for a stag do during the Covid 19 restrictions. The site was large enough for our small group to socially distance and still have a good time. When we arrived the team had freshly cleaned and disinfected the site. We were then left alone on site but with the knowledge that the staff were on hand should we need them. The facilities are excellent, the staff are friendly and helpful and they've put the correct practices in place so that you can book during these restrictions and still be safe. I'd highly recommend.

Alex - Stag Weekend - Sept 19

My daughter had her hen weekend here, despite the fact it had been raining all week and the ground was wet, we had a fabulous time. The activities were brilliant and the attention to detail from the staff was second to none. There is a large indoor seating area with tables as well as a lovely indoor Bar-B-Q shed, the crowning glory is the fire pit, for a cool evening this is a lovely way to sit and socialise, there is plenty of wood to keep the fire going but the staff are also on hand a very good at keeping it topped up. Highly recommend.

Linda - Hen weekend - Aug 19

I organised a stag do at one of the Glamping camps and it was perfect, food and activities all taken care of by the staff who made for an excellent weekend. The accommodation is great and there are bbq and kitchen areas to use. The campfire was roaring all weekend. Would highly recommend anyone booking a stag to consider it, you’ll be in safe hands and have a great weekend.

Tom Fleetwood - Stag weekend - July 19

Saturday we did our chosen activities – Code Breaking & Rafting. These were so well organised and fun, also great for big groups to bond and get to know one another. Big shout out to Chris and Pav, our amazing hosts for the day who managed to put up with 18 rather strong willed, hyper and hungover ladies! You guys were great and we can’t thank you enough for making it such a giggle.

Hollie Hunt - Hen Weekend - July 19

I would like to begin this review with a huge THANK YOU to the Oaker Wood Team. We organised a weekend at the camp for our friends hen party – from the initial enquiries stage, all the way through to the weekend itself the team were beyond helpful. I spoke to many Glamping venues and most were proving inflexible in terms of people, activities and options. Oaker Wood has a very simple and organised set up, however the team were more than happy to make tweaks to the package to suit the needs of our group.
