Had a superb time at Dragon Archery, Andy and his team were amazing and very accommodating. The centre is something most unique with excitement, atmosphere, music and superb features. Certainly booking again when back in Devon next year. A morning or afternoon not to be missed.

Just wanted to let anyone thinking of doing Dragon Archery know that you can't go wrong!!! We went there on 29/4/11 for my Stag Do and had an amazing time. First of all, the set up is top quality in a beautiful location and purpose built. You work your way through a series of target ranges which get progressively more exciting and challenging. My personal highlight was the Lord of the Rings range as the targets are PROPER Uruk Hai and Orcs. It was a great pleasure shooting them!!! It's a MUST for any LotR fans but every target range is great, including dinosaurs and an Agincourt range, a pleasure for any patriotic Englishman!!! 9 of us went and competed against eachother which made it a great laugh for the stag and meant bragging rights for the evening to come!!! Staff were amazing, very friendly with an incredibly interesting history lesson as you went and a demonstration of bows use in warfare. It's a brilliant, pure genius idea. They deserve all the success to come. Thank you!! Dan

Four of us booked into Dragon Archery just after Easter this year. During the course of the morning’s entertainment, we all felt that we learned a great deal and benefitted from expert tuition. Drinks and snacks were laid on and the friendliness of staff was warming. It didn’t matter what size or gender you were, we were all competitive and had a fabulous time. The layout of the tournaments and attention to detail was brilliant. The whole experience was the best part of our holiday. We all agreed that we would return in the near future.
My husband arranged this for my birthday. He spent quite some time looking at something archery related both locally and further afield. Dragon Archery is in excess of 200 miles from home. The reason that he decided on Dragon was because of the reviews. How right he was! From the moment we arrived, we were made welcome by Andy, Joy and their 2 sons. Having had a few practice shots, we were taken on an adventure where we were not just shooting at circular targets as you would expect, but shooting at dinosaurs, Lord of the Rings, Camelot - all were large models and a real challenge to hit and score points. All the time, we had help with positioning and aiming the bow and arrow if we needed it. The final challenge was the dragon slayer.. In all honesty, this is the best family day out we've ever had and can't recommend it enough! Fantastic day, loved every minute!
I first went to the Dragon Archery Centre some four years ago with very little expectations. We were greeted by the entire family who welcomed us with open arms and treated us all, what we felt, a special day out. They teach you individually and give instructions how to use you bow no matter the skill range. We originally only booked once and before we left the afternoon we booked two further sessions. This is truly a family run business and they embrace you as you were a part of the family. I've booked already three sessions for this year and I am not coming down till August. Book ahead as the place is filled up fast. No matter who walks in the door you will always feel a warm welcome. The views a panoramic and no matter the weather you ensured for good time. Everyone becomes completly focused on one goal, to become a dragon slayer. You can virtually hear your heart pumping and feel the dryness in your mouth. So go for it, book now to avoid disappointment!

My daughter and I had a really fun time at Dragon Archery . We were made really welcome from the moment we arrived. The instructions were so clear and Andy was very patient with us. The quality of service was outstanding and I would have no hesitation in recommending Dragon Archery . We both cant wait to go back and want to bring some of our friends with us.

Dragon Archery was a simply fantastic experience. My wife, my 11-year-old son and I were all made most welcome from the moment we arrived, to the moment we had to, reluctantly, drag ourselves away. The experience started with a few practice shots at traditional round targets, during which we were given excellent instructions on how to load, aim and fire the arrows (and clear and concise safety instructions). After this one moves to much less traditional targets, including shooting at dinosaurs, Orcs and wolves from "The Lord of the Rings" (taking great care not to shoot "the good guys", followed by the French at the battle of Agincourt. At each stage, we were set small, but exciting tasks, with the different targets being given "points" that had to be earned. We were given a shoot to shoot at a dragon's heart to try to kill the dragon. If you succeed (which we did not!) and engraved plaque is put up on a shield in the Reception Area. We are going back as soon as we can.

"Dragon Archery is amazing!!! There are not many places that keep you coming back year after year, but this is certainly one of them. We've been regulars for the last three years and can't wait until we go again this year. I urge anyone that has not been to give it a go. Great people, great setting, great day out. 10 out of 10".

Just had to say how much we all enjoyed our afternoon of archery. We all thought it was fantastic fun. We will certainly tell folks about our day with you…

For me Dragon Archery is simply perfect, the location, the genuine friendly atmosphere, the excitement of "the shoot" (my term) There are all kinds of weapons with interesting and educational stories/facts surrounding them in the various "shooting bays" (me again) you will see a war bow fired across two fields with accuracy, there are many individual and team challenges all carried out in a safe manner. I could say a lot more but will leave saying that on the final challenge you get the chance to become a Dragon Slayer with your name placed on a shield for all to see if you hit the target. The whole event of being at Dragon archery is a pleasure so thankyou Andy and the team! I will be there again in the summer, all the best from Big Ian and family in Ipswich. Cant Wait

We came for a course and I’d just like to say how much the 4 of us enjoyed it. I could see the effort and care and expense put into the set-up and the arrangement of the site ... I thought It was Very well run and a great day for anybody. We all talked about it on the way home and all agreed that It was a fantastic day. Especially for people who have never shot a bow before.

I’ve just had the best archery experience I’ve ever had and it was the highlight of my holiday. I’d also like to say that the ranges they have created are the best I have ever seen and they are great fun. Thank you soooooo much for a fantastic 2 days at your archery centre and I look forward to coming again in the future. Great to be a dragonslayer!

Andy, Joy and Josh are so great. They are brilliant instructors and are great fun to be around.

We had a fabulous day out at Dragon Archery. Each themed section was really novel and added a great surprise and wow factor to the day. We particularly appreciated the attention to the smaller details too - such as complimentary packets of biscuits to keep our energy levels up. A great day out!

We had an office outing to Dragon Adventure and had a wonderful time. Andy and Joy were perfect hosts and managed to tutor even the most clueless amongst us (like me!) to successfully hit the differently styled targets. It's a great day out with a difference, in beautiful surroundings. Definitely recommend it for families or groups of all ages.
