Archery or Crossbows

Fancy some competitive fun?

Archery and Crossbow are both great activities to introduce some healthy competition to your team and an enjoyable opportunity for them to try their hand at some new skills. Your delegates will be supervised by our qualified instructors. They'll be in safe hands and discover some surprising differences between these ancient disciplines.

Clay Pigeon shooting

How well do you know your team? Are they calm under pressure? Can they react quickly and keep their eye on the detail? Let them try clay pigeon shooting and find out for themselves! As well as being great fun, it's an opportunity to develop these desirable skills. It's also a suitable activity for a competitive team building event.

Air Rifle Shooting

Our highly qualified instructors will encourage your delegates to practice aim and marksmanship skills; adhering to the highest safety practices. Suitable as an individual or team activity.

Laser Clay

Laser Clay is highly recommended as a first introduction to shooting, as it's quiet and cartridge free. Your delegates will be coached by qualified Instructors (using the Lasersport system), who will help them get the most out of this popular activity.

Bow Tag

Based on the popular American Archery Tag, Bow Tag is a competitive team activity where teams take to battle on the Bow Tag Field. Equipped with bow, mask and armguard the objective is to tag the opposing team with a foam tipped arrow. Each team has a scoreboard when a core is hit it will fall from the score board 5 fallen cores and your team is out! The game area is covered in large inflatable obstacles (similar to typical paintball sites) and the arrows are foam tipped, so it's all perfectly safe. There's even a 'no man's land' between the team areas to make sure the competitive spirit doesn't get out of hand! All games are refereed by qualified Instructors, who keep safety and fair play in mind at all times.

Our happy Clients

  • I was looking forward to this as I have already driven 4x4 offroad in Land Rovers and I am pleased to say I was not disappointed. Driving an 8 ton 4 wheel drive army truck through mud and deep water is great fun and I would thoroughly recommend this experience.

    Tom C

  • A warm and very friendly welcome awaited us at the site. Offered a coffee as we were early and offered wifi use. ( we arrived very early) Taken out to the land rover defender. Given a brief on the vehicle and it's 4 wheel drive functions and off we went. Each driver was taken on a different course. The team have a wealth of experience and are happy to talk 4x4 with you.

  • Best 4x4 driving experience we've had! Perfect time of year - lots of water & lots of mud. Mark provides very thorough instruction, and gives you the confidence to get the most of your time behind the wheel. We would highly recommend this off-road experience. We'll certainly be back!

All of the activities a great fun and you have a lot of choice to choose from. They are all very unique and provide for a really different day out. Would highly recommend.

    K J

  • An off the cuff booking for the Segway experience for a group of novices. Staff very welcoming and provided good introduction to 'riding' a Segway and then a nicely graduated programme to off road. Will look to consider other 'experiences' on the basis of the quality of the staff and the experience that we had with the Segway.

    Benson Paul

  • We really enjoyed all our activities (clay shooting & 4x4 driving) Especially ending our day on such a high with the Segways, which were such fun!


  • A good rural location for an off site Management meeting or team building event. The booking process was simple, pro-active and efficient from Amie and our 5 man Management Team had an enjoyable Segway Experience with a very pleasant and tolerant instructor despite us not always following the rules and being a little cheeky. Will use again
