Such good entertainment

Gordon was as informative and patient as he was when our family wanted to do archery last year. The very fact we went back to him is testimomony to that. My brothers were able to shoot higher-powered bows too, which clearly they both enjoyed, and my mother (77), sister-in-law, and son, niece and nephews all were beaming at the end. Bravo, Gordon!

A real gem Of a place

What a wonderful find! I can truly say anybody would be hard pushed not to have a great time at this place even I if archery is not your thing.
Gordon is one of those people you rapidly warm to as well as being a wonderful tutor. He will take you into a journey of Zen, building your confidence and self belief relevant not just to becoming a hot shot on the targets but also to life in general. All in a stunning Dartmoor setting.
I have a background in Archery but it was so much fun I took my teenage daughter . She raved about it so much I had to take my son. Now my wife wants us all to go and in the summer months I plan to go with workmates for some fun and team building !
