I bought this experience day for my partner and ended up doing it myself as well as some spaces were still available. We had a great time. Adam, the instructor is really friendly and made the day thoroughly enjoyable. We've been taught how to shoot arrows with a long bow in the morning and after lunch, Adam organised mini games which were all really fun. The instructor/owner is truly passionate about archery and his enthusiasm is contagious. I really recommend this experience. My boyfriend had a great day and finally realised his dream to shoot a long bow.
