We stayed in the Deeside farm accommodation at Christmas 2014 so popped into the activity park to organise shooting and to purchase some of the beef reared by the farm. My husband and his friend enjoyed participating in some clay shooting on the farm ground. I bought some of the beef and brought it home - it was so wonderful... More

We have been visiting the Activity Centre during the winter for the Sunday Carvery, these are excellent, the Home Reared Cairnton Beef melts in the mouth. These Carveries usually run from around September and finish around Easter when the calving takes priority on the farm. This year however, Ken has been trying out a monthly Barbecue featuring the same cuts... More

Called in here whilst visiting the area. We didn't participate in any of the activities but everything was free to watch. There's a lovely cafe/restaurant serving a good range of freshly cooked food at reasonable prices. We just had drinks and a cake and sat outside.

Deeside Activity Centre run occasional barbecues, and we booked in for Sunday Lunch. Almost all the foodstuffs available were grown or reared on the estate and were absolutely gorgeous...! The pulled brisket was wonderfully tasty and the burgers and sausages were first-class too. The rib-eye steaks and chicken were well worth a try and the salads and tatties all perfect... More

Came here with my family - my young cousin through to my grandparents. We had a 2 hour session for archery, target shooting and Karting. The instructors were a great laugh and made sure everyone felt involved and knew what to do. Absolutely fantastic site, can't wait to go back and try the other activities :-)
