“Great fun”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

We are a group of nine women who play sports together and go away for the weekend once a year. We decided we wanted to have some stuff to do this year so our organiser found us this place and booked us in for clay pigeon shooting, archery and team games, with a camp fire in the evening. The instructors/games leaders were very friendly and took all of our silly nonsense in good spirit. The setting is lovely and although the accomodation was a bit basic, we were well looked after and the breakfast was awesome!!

i took my wife here for clay pigeon shooting. neither of us had shot before, but the instructor made us feel at ease and took us through everything we needed.
i managed to hit 18 out of 25 clays - mostly because of the instructors wise words!

all in all, really good fun.

We booked for archery for a Saturday morning in December. The instructor was friendly and helpful. He had a great sense of humour and was good fun. He let us have a few practice goes and then set up a couple of competitions between the adults and the teenagers! We booked a BBQ lunch at the centre, the food was basic but good and hot. Staff again very friendly and helpful. On Sunday morning of the same weekend we booked for the clay pigeon shooting with a different instructor but again the whole event was very well run, again the instructor was very helpful, friendly and good fun.

“Amazingly good fun!!”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

I took my boyfriend here to do some clay pigeon shooting which neither of us had done before. Hidden away down a country lane was the activity centre which have lots to offer! We walked to the shooting area where we were greeted by a lovely man who certainly knew what he was doing, he knew we were all learners too! (there were 6 of us) he went through everything with us and we got given the appropriate gear along with scoring cards. It was a very enjoyable day, staff very helpful and friendly, highly recommended!

“Brilliant fun”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Took my son and husband to do some clay pigeon shooting and it was very enjoyable, the staff were lovely and they make you feel very welcome. They do lots of different things e.g Shooting, paintball, Archery, Raft building, Quad bike courses, Assault courses and a few other things. They do hen and stag parties and you can also stay the night in one of their rooms.
Plenty for all the family, well worth a visit.
