What a great day EVERYONE had! From the ease of booking to the actual event was such an easy process. On the actual day I found the staff very polite, helpful and professional and good fun! Nothing was too much trouble - I even forgot to take a knife to cut the birthday cake but Helen was on it straight away - thanks Helen! The kids had so much fun - 4 games, all very well organised, very safe (if you follow the instructions). Kids are still talking about it days after. Thanks OAKERWOOD for a brill day!!

Visited Oaker Wood back in the summer, the guys Sam and Chris were brilliant. My son was a bit nervous but Chris helped him become confident quickly and all had a great time, will definitely return and highly recommend.

My Daughters Best Party EVER!!! This weekend my daughter had her 10th Birthday party with you quad biking. All 8 children had a fantastic time and all want to come again. It was very well organised, children were safe at all times, the staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. I would highly recommend quad biking. I think it is worth every penny and we will be back again. Keep up the good work.

Fantastic day had by all the boys, they really enjoyed paintballing. They got to play 4 games in the two hours they were there. The staff were great and explained every game to the boys. Super birthday party for a thirteen year old.

Neil Morris - Behind Bars - Oct 19

We had the most amazing weekend here! The owners and staff are lovely and accommodating. It’s very organised from booking to leaving and Dave who looks after you when you’re there is brill. We all loved it - the communal areas are perfect for big groups. The big fire pit, barbacue hut and eating area are perfect. We had the most fun on the krypton trail - fun for all ages. Our ages ranged from 1-70! We all loved it so much we are making it an annual event! Highly recommend this hidden gem if you love the outdoors but want to sleep in a warm bed!

Emily Lerego - 40th Birthday - Oct 19
