Activities in Lakeland 

Target Sports

For those who think they might have a keen eye or wanting to recreate The Battle of Hastings, a Viking Raid, Lord of the Rings or perhaps Band of Brothers, we have a range of varied target sports. 

Archery is a slow subtle sport where control of the body and breathing is everything. Archery is great because there are so many complex things going on and when you get them all lined up  the arrow slides beautifully into the gold and that feels great.

Axe throwing requires a bit more strength and energy, but not just strength or the axe will go nowhere, or just bounce off. But yes, when the axe head slices into the target you feel just that little bit like a Viking or even an Orc. 

Air rifles are subtle and gentle, which makes them great for competitions. Strength is less of an issue here, so levels the playing field between old and young, fit or otherwise. 

Clay Pigeon Shooting, there is much to be said about Clays.  Click here for the dedicated page.

Axe Throwing + Quads

A good combination for friend get-togethers or Stag and Hen Do’s. There’s a bit of something to suit everyone.
