5-STAR EXPERIENCES ACCORDING OUR CLIENTS

An amazing workout.

The wind was horrendous but had a great time regardless. Matt was fantastic tour guide and a great guy to be around.

Amazing adventures

We had a wonderful time stand up paddle boarding and rock climbing. Mike and Josh were great with our daughters, giving them the confidence and encouragement to overcome their fears. We always felt safe but suitably challenged. We will definitely be booking activities with Parkwood Outdoors again in the future and are looking forward to it.

Amazing experience

Had a fantastic morning with Matt on paddleboards this morning. Loved it. Mart was very patient and was amazing. Thanks for a great experience. Every member of staff was friendly and welcoming from arriving through to leaving. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking to go.

Gorge walking fun - couldn’t get any wetter!

Brilliant experience gorge walking for my young boys 8 and 10. Booked for the half day session on a rainy February day. They couldn’t do enough and the level of care the instructor Matt showed was a delight to see.

Amazing friendly greeting and overall experience at this camping site.

No signal at all, which for some is a minus star but for us allowed a lovely tech free camping experience. Lovely view of the reservoir and a good variety of walks nearby. Staff were helpful in recommending local spots for walking and wild swimming. Non electric pitches allowed for the proper camping experience. Definitely will come again! Thanks!

Zip lining

Brilliant (if a little scary!) zip wire experience! My 11 year old daughter loved it. Siobhan, the instructor, was great - fun and encouraging! Definitely recommend! Great value for money!

We did a full day gorge walking.

Arrived at 9, checked in and got our wetsuits etc on. Had a 40 min drive in a minibus to the location. We spent about 5 hours in the rivers, walking, climbing, scrambling, traversing, and doing jumps into the water. Then we chilled out at the minibus, ate our packed lunch before driving back in the minibus to the park and finishing for the afternoon at around 3pm ish. It was quite a physically demanding activity at times, but in short bursts with lots of opportunities to rest. I'm not overly fit and was able to keep up just fine. Our instructors were very patient and knowledgeable.

Amazing time gorge walking!

All the staff were so friendly and helpful and really made our day! The gorge walking itself was great. Though a bit cold, it was definitely worth it and we will be returning again. Beautiful setting, couldn’t have asked for more.

Welcoming and safe

Went zip-lining with my friend Daz, Darren, and our Turkish friend Dorraan at the weekend for a stag do. Siobhan was a great mentor and made the whole experience joyful, despite my crippling fear of heights. Would come back again! Date of experience: June 2022

Absolutely amazing place to stay

Well I cannot give this place enough stars!! The area was outstanding and beautiful and the staff so accommodating. We stayed for 3 nights. Siobhan was so helpful and was great with my 8 yr old daughter who was in love with Zip wiring and went on multiply times. We did river goring with Becks who was great with my son in keeping him busy. We hired the canoes out around the river. Wendy made the most amazing woodoven pizzas! And the reception staff were great as well. We will definitely be coming back. Only a suggestion, is a freezer to keep the ice blocks cold for longer stays. Date of experience: June 2022

Go to Parkwood if you want to have a great time!

Booked 2 activities at Parkwood. Caving and Archery. Absolutely fantastic, my 13 year son and myself enjoyed our instruction from Tim the Archery Expert and our Caving instructor (apologies for forgetting her name). Both instructors were professional and made the activities so much fun. Marc & Rafi (London) Date of experience: February 2022
