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!

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.

Josh - Stag weekend - July 19

What an amazing place Oaker Wood is...upon arrival our camp site was immaculate, camp fire was ready to go and staff were brilliant. Ended up doing quad biking, rafting and paint balling and each activity was brilliantly put together by the team. Had a right laugh. It’s been a fantastic weekend in an amazing place. Would 100% recommend this place and I really hope we all come back in the future.

Luke's Stag weekend - July 19

What can I say about Oaker. Such accommodating staff when booking, easy to communicate and organise everything with. Staff super friendly before booking and on the day of the hen’s activities. The group of us booked in for target shooting which was great fun and code breaker. We had the most amazing day made super special by the staff and the actual activities we picked. There are sooo many different activities there is something to suit everyone. Thanks for an amazing day. Maxine
