FAQ

If it isn't answered here, then get in touch. We will be happy to help!

What is your minimum age?

  • Bushcraft is 7yrs.

  • Woodland Archery is 8yrs.

  • Axe Throwing is 12yrs. 

  • Combat Archery is 12yrs.

We strongly advise that children under the age of 12 are not booked in for more than 60mins unless part of a bigger group of at least 4 persons. This is to prevent injuries to developing muscles/tendons.

Younger children are welcome to spectate and be our safety marshals throughout.  The pathways are uneven, however buggies and pushchairs can easily get around.

What are the minimum numbers?

  • 60 mins *Minimum of 2

  • 90 mins: If under 12yrs minimum of 4. If 12yrs+ minimum of 2.

  • Any session over 90 mins requires minimum of 4 persons in the group. That includes Bushcraft.

  • Combat Archery requires you to bring at least 8 participants, so there are 4 on each team.

  • *Adult Solo Archers/Axe Throwers, 60 minute session only. We would be delighted to welcome you.

  • We try to keep you as your own group. However, we reserve the right to add to any group with less than 4 participants during high season/school holidays

What do I wear?

Lighter layers of clothing are preferential, and feet must be enclosed in appropriate woodland walking type of footwear. 

Please remove scarves (or tuck them in securely), tie long hair back and remove (or tape over) larger facial piercings.

For Axe Throwing, hoods can sometimes get in the way so we may ask you to tuck them in. Midgie repellent and sun cream are recommended in warmer weather.  And always bring a shower proof jacket!

What safety equipment is provided?

For archery we provide an armguard, finger protectors, a quiver. For Combat Archery we also provide full facial helmets (required) and optional chest protectors. 

Full Instruction is given before every session, and reminders of safety throughout by your instructor. 

This is a woodland though, and we cannot protect you from mother nature.

What about bad weather?

Our sessions rely on good weather and we are quite lucky as the woods has it's own thing going. However on the rare occasion we cannot run a session due to : torrential rain, sleet, gale force winds, fog and thunder/lightening storms.  We will contact you as soon as possible using the mobile number you have given us. If we cannot find a mutually agreeable date to rebook then we will refund your deposit. 

Do you do gift vouchers?

Yes. We certainly do!  The minimum age/numbers will still apply as will all other terms and conditions. Vouchers last for one year.

You will soon be able to purchase directly from our website, until then please just get in touch.

Vouchers can be either emailed direct to you to print out, collected from the wood by arrangement or posted direct to the recipient (£p&p extra).
