This was a great therapy season and lot harder that it looks!! Jay has the patience of saint!! It was great to get muddy and active in the fresh air!

It felt safe at all times and and there was even a bow for a left hander like myself! Then Jake taught us how to throw axes, firstly with small 4 sided blades and then with larger axes...

Lots of fun and great food too. Really enjoyable day. We're all now (semi) proficient in the art of throwing sharp and deadly objects with force. That could come in real handy at some point! Thank you so much NPF... 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Chloe Duggan - Did the archery and axe throwing for me and my boyfriend. We had a great day and the instructors made the experience even better! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Amber Gill - Really good fun, wish I’d booked more activities- would defo come back again 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Caroline Williams - What a fabulous experience! When booking our activities I was anxious they would suit all in our family group of 12 (12-55) and booking activities that we could all do as a large group. Anthony was really helpful and reassuring on the phone and the whole process of booking was seamless. We choose axe throwing and pistol shooting and what a hoot we had. The booking in and greeting process was efficient on arrival and we were lucky to have Antony as our host for both activities. Although a big group we all felt engaged throughout and the time flew by! Safety was a priority with throwing sharp objects and shooting guns but this didn’t detract from the fun! Photos were encouraged throughout and Antony taking group photos for us at the end was brilliant end to the day! We all left happy and laughing and highly recommend NPF! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
David Patterson - Very good 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Alex Cottee - We visited NPF on a cold January day as a belated corporate Christmas get together, but despite the climate the day was fantastic from start to finish.

Annandpete_13 - Recently went to this place for my son's stag do, it's a huge place about 15 mins from the centre of Birmingham, I think it is somewhere in the region of 400 acres of woodland. They really took care of our party of 11 all day and are very safety conscious, our activities included shooting, archery, axe and tomahawk throwing and finally quad biking. Extremely enjoyable day and a snack meal included and refreshments available at each stage and all necessary clothing and protective equipment is supplied. This seems a popular place and mainly known for paintball games and I can understand why, would recommend this to anybody. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Kim Parker - absolutely brilliant day out so much fun staff very friendly as well 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Matthew Smith - I booked our activities as part of a stag. I spoke to Kerry a number of times who was absolutely superb sorting everything out etc especially during the current circumstances of covid. The people at each activity were great, especially the guy on our paintball session. Was amazed by the size of the place, especially the paint balling and how friendly, fun and enthusiastic all staff were 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Tanya Bell - Fabulous experience with my 14 year old daughter to release some tension before she went back to school! My daughter can be very shy with strangers and new situations, however Andy made her feel very comfortable and was encouraging her throughout both Rifle Shooting and Axe Throwing. He made both experiences fun and I would definitely recommend NPF. I'm hoping to go back soon for some more axe throwing, and would love to give the quad bikes a go too! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Kalwinder Sond - Was very satisfied with the services that I received from the booking all the the way down to the activity everything was in place for COVID and our safety want to say a big thank you to our host on the day Andy who was down to earth and made us feel so welcomed and looked after us throughout our experience 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
