"Very knowledgeable and funny!"

My partner and I attended the Medieval Trio course which included archery, crossbow shooting and axe throwing. Glenn, our instructor was awesome, very knowledgeable and funny! We had so much fun, we didn't want to leave. We'll be back very soon, I'm sure.

"Equipment was high quality"

Fantastic morning of archery and axe-throwing - hosted by the brilliant Jeffrey. Loved getting to know more of the history, the logic behind the techniques and to then put it all to the test. Equipment was high quality too. Would thoroughly recommend! 🏹

"Great value for money"

Nothing more to say than excellent, Ken and Charlie the dog were great. We did axe throwing, cross bow and archery. Great instructor, left to do the activities as we felt fit and rotated round for a chance to do all. Great value for money and threw for 2 1/2 hours. Highly recommended.

"What a great day"

What a great day. We did the medieval trilogy with Phil in Dorset. Phil was an absolutely great guy who made each of us feel very welcome and gave us excellent tuition in archery before we had a riot with crossbows and hand axes. Highly recommended!
