  • Had a great time with a 12 and 9 year old during our stay in the Cotswold. We did Archery and Air Rifle shooting which lasted about an hour each. The activities was done as a set of mini games which was far more entertaining than just hitting a board continuously. The instructor (Steve) was great and had lots of patience, especially with my 9 year old. The Cotswold Range was far better value than other similar venues nearby. Note that the location currently doesn't show on Google street view - but it is there! Highly recommended!
  • What can I say - absolutely fantastic! We went as a family and all of us had a wonderful time. Both our children (8 and 13) enjoyed themselves on the archery so much so that we came back in the afternoon to have a go with the air rifles. We had Steve as our instructor - an absolute star, but we met another instructor who was equally friendly and helpful. Unlike other archery places we've been, Steve was with us throughout helping us with our technique, supporting and encouraging us all and running a couple of unexpected but fun games! The air rifles was run in a similar way with technique help, some target practice and some fun games! We now have two children who want to take up archery! But overall excellent value for money and a unique experience - a completely recommend experience!
  • Did this today as part of daughter's birthday present and was amazing. We all had a brilliant time and cant fault the experience. Jezza was knowledgeable and patient. Highly recommended
  • My boyfriend and I (28 & 30 years old) booked onto a 1 hour lesson private lesson for £25 each. Steve, the owner and instructor taught us the basics and we practiced to get our technique right, then we launched into a competition over multiple rounds and different games. It was challenging, fun and rewarding. Steve was professional and experienced. He pushed us enough so that we would learn whilst ensuring we were comfortable and enjoying it. There were complimentary drinks available (water, tea and coffee) and a clean portable toilet. We'll definitely be returning and making it a regular activity.
  • We have been twice now to the cotworld range first doing archery and then this occasion crossbow. We will definitely be going back for the air rifle. Fun games and friendly competition with a chance to get your name up on the wall if you are accurate enough. Would highly recommend.
