My Partner and I book a half day for my birthday which included Archery , axe throwing , knife throwing and bull whip cracking.
It was an extremely relaxing and chilled out day with excellent instruction from Gordon. I will definitely be booking again and would highly recommend this to anyone, of any level of experience.
Thanks for the great day Gordon see you again soon.
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!
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 !
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.
