Just spent the morning having a fantastic time learning how to use a bow an arrow!

We were a group of seven, ranging in age from 11 to 50 and all I can say is that everyone of us had a brilliant time. It takes something special to drag the kids away from the Xbox but this certainly did the trick.

The team that run the sessions are so welcoming and helpful it puts you at ease immediately, especially those of us who worried about being useless!

The time flies by so quickly it’s amazing, and the little bit of competition keeps everyone on their toes.

Can’t recommend the Dragon Archery highly enough, and you never know you may become a Dragon Slayer too!

We had the best time here! It’s much more than the big standard archery session, with a number of different sections, all with different themes.

After some great tutoring from the team, we moved on to the first themed section which was amazing. After a practice, we moved on to games which were great to add a little competitiveness, whilst keeping it fun.

There is even a chance to join the esteemed dragon slayers as the end, if you are able to shoot the target on the dragon. Sadly we are still just standard archers, and will have to try again to become a slayer!

The team were amazing. Very friendly, very helpful, and they knew exactly what they were talking about. Thanks to them, we were hitting targets much more frequently than we would have without them.

Don’t let the weather put you off. It poured down the whole time we were there but the rain never touched us. You are under shelter the whole time, and they have heaters in each room and even had a large portable heater they carried around with us.

They also had lots of free refreshments, including a cute basket of sweets and chocolate.

We can’t wait to visit again, it’s just a shame we live over 3 hours away!

Fantastic time at dragon archery!!!

Excellent customer service from all the family that run it, from the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out the door. 3 hours of total fun but very educational which passed very quickly, with the instructors all having a great deal of knowledge of archery, both technically and historically.

They were all very friendly patient and attentive to each of us with 121 advice throughout the sessions from our own instructors and with refreshments on hand whenever we wanted it.

All in all an excellent way to spend the afternoon and well worth the money. Enjoyed it so much we are signing up with the local archery club when back home.

Will definitely go back

Excellent for all ages and really good fun! Competitive if you want it to be or just enjoy having a go. What makes this place special is Andy and the rest of his family. This is obviously a passion for the family and that really comes across in all what they do here. Well done and thanks!

This is the second time we have visited here, this time for a twenty first birthday treat and once again it proved to be a wonderfully fun morning for the five of us. The hosts and crew were friendly and professional and made the archery experience enjoyable. The whole event is under cover so a bit of rain makes no difference and also the Tea and Coffee was most welcome. We will certainly return and can thoroughly recommend Dragon Archery to anyone.
