  • Pete White

    We had a great time yesterday as part of my sons stag do. Great relaxed tuition from Ken & loads of time to try out the archery, cross bows and knife throwing. All hidden away in a quiet part of the forest. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

  • Cia Del Greco

    Ken was brilliant at showing us how to use the archery bows, crossbows and axe throwing. Once we knew this and the safety precautions, we could choose which activity we wanted to do, Ken was always at hand to assist us if we needed it. Would definitely book this session again.
