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.

Great 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

We visited Oaker Wood to quad bike as part of a stag weekend. The stag is a wheelchair user and from start to finish the guys at oaker Wood were amazing. They helped us organise the event and went to great lengths to make it as accessible as possible. Everyone at the centre was amazing and helped to make it a day to remember and the quad biking was so much fun, learning the ropes on a track and then taking them out in to the beautiful woodlands! Would definitely return any time and would highly recommend it to anyone. Such a great company!

We opted for two activities; the adrenalin package and the borne obelisk. Basically these all involved various adventures with ropes and forests. We finished bruised, knackered and having had a great time.

Hen Weekend - April 17

We opted for semi-catered; we were brought bread, spreads, cereal and freshly cooked bacon each morning (more than we could eat - and we tried!) and hot dogs for lunch on the Saturday. We catered our own evening meals using the kitchen in the glamping village and the barbecue hut.

Hen Weekend - April 17

Our group had a wonderful day quad biking and paintballing. The location is peaceful, the staff were friendly, helpful and knew what they were doing. Felt like we had plenty of time to enjoy each activity and everyone had fun. We will be back! Would thoroughly recommend. 5/5.

Tom Davies - Stag Party - April 18

The Borne Obelisk was really well organised, fun activity for a group of 17 of us, across a range of ages. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and the instructors were really helpful and encouraging. Thank you so much for a great time!

It was awesome having our own camp fire circle for socializing and drinking around in the evening ! I cannot recommend this place enough ! Everyone commented on it being such a good place for a weekend away ! Thankyou Oaker Wood !

Richard Norman - Stag Weekend - March 18

We went to Oakerwood for my friends hen party. It was a small party with only 5 of us and as such we were technically below the minimum number for the activities. Oakerwood were extremely accommodating and helped us book activities we could do. They even helped us arrange the day when we discovered one of our party was pregnant so they could join in too. They couldn’t do more to help and the staff were very friendly and made the day one the hen wouldn’t forget.

Went on a stag do with some mates, really great value for money and well looked after by Mikey, Dawn and especially Brookesy. Top marks all round, quad trekking was especially good

Absolutely brilliant day Quad bike Trekking. Have already recommended it to work mates and will definitely be going back. Being a mixed age stag group 16 - 61 they ensured that the day was perfect. Thanks for being a really professional outfit.
