I can't thank Gordon enough for accommodating us at short notice on a blustery, hail-filled Sunday afternoon.
The archery introduction and explanation of some of the history helped to set the scene for a fantastic session.
My husband and I bought our son (14) and his cousin (16) and we all loved it.
Getting to grips with the technique was taught beautifully, we were encouraged to trust ourselves and not overthink the shot. The target shooting was brilliant, and then we moved on to the 3D targets. Gordon kept everyone involved and supported- He's really friendly and clearly loves archery. Then we had a try at knife and axe throwing, which rounded off the afternoon brilliantly.
If you are looking to do something engaging and interactive with your family, in beautiful surroundings, this is it.
We all talked non stop on the way home about our best bits, and our best shots. Thanks so much Gordon- we'll definitely come back
Fantastic day out.
Gordon's way of setting the scene and evoking the historic context for archery was great. He really made me feel like an archer.
The range is fantastic, I loved shooting the life-sized animals and the zombies were awesome
Give it a go, you will have a great time.
