This is the second time l have come back to Gordon and Dartmoor Archery, this time my wife came with me and she really enjoyed the experience and we have vowed to return. Gordin gets everyone fitted with glove and arm guard making sure it fits snuggly. The he goes into a safety talk and he teaches the youngest of the group on a one to one basis if necessary. First getting a feel of the equipment and grouping arrows on a target. Once mastered on to life sized foam animal targets great day out.
Well worth the visit if in Dartmoor a real experience to remember and my son is still talking about it a week after our visit. Can't thank Gordon enough.
Gordon is a fantastic guy, so accommodating and helpful and a lot of fun. He puts on a great day with something for everyone. He’s got all the kit and let’s you use it and knows so much about it all. I will definitely be going back, thanks for a great time Gordon.
Really enjoyed my session here and felt I learned a great deal. Gordon's expertise in archery really shone through in his teaching and the setting gave a calming, natural feel to the session. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone, regardless of experience or sporting accumen.
Had a great time and Gordon was an excellent teacher! Very patient and safe. Definitely would go again!
Spent the whole weekend with Gordon and 14 of my friends, we had the most amazing time shooting on the range at various targets, learning how to shoot and trying different bows, we then had a great laugh playing archery tag, throwing knives and axes and finished up having games and a laugh round a camp fire, it was pure bliss and everyone had an amazing time, could not recommend this place more! Thank you Gordon!
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.
Staff from Molytor needed time to unwind and a chance to develop our team building skills. Dartmoor Archery, being local seemed logical. The event exceeded our expectations and more. Gordon is an excellent teacher and by the end, we could all use a bow proficiently. The variety of targets and weapons (including knife and axe throwing) was great fun. I would encourage any company looking for something similar to take this amazing opportunity. Will definately be visiting again soon!
One of the few things that genuinely is 'fun for all the family'. My 76-year-old mother loved it, so did I, and so did my brother, his wife and four of our children (aged 13-18). Thoroughly recommended.
We took our sons and a group of friends and family to Darmoor Archery for a Birthday party .
Gordon provided an excellent experince for everyone who attended what ever the age or ability.
We had under tens, teenagers and a few adults. We had a lot of fun! As an outdoor educator myself I found Gordon's knowledge, passion and communication skills inspiring . This certainly isn't your average archery venue.
If you want someting different this His warm welcome and hospitality means we would certainly visit again.
I would highly recommend! So would my boys friends and family!!!!
