Not as young or as fit now, however the Activity Centre provided the activity I can still enjoy. The carvery was excellent with very good quality home cooked food. The staff were friendly and helpful. Looking around others were definitely enjoying themselves. Would recommend.

We were staying at nearby cottages last week and booked a half hour archery session. All the staff at the Centre were very helpful and friendly and Ken, who ran the session, was funny and informative. We then went into the Tea Room where we had lovely service and glorious home made goodies. If you are staying nearby - this... More

Had a fantastic time at the Activity Park trying out archery. Excellent instruction and a good laugh at the same time. Stopped off at the tea room for cake afterwards. I would definitely recommend (and will be back)! Locally sourced and delicious food - perfect way to round off the morning. Would love to try other activities in the future.

Popped in for a quick bite this past Monday lunch time. The restaurant was busy but service quick and friendly. Superb Cullen Skink (that's a smoked haddock, cream chowder for all you non-NorthEasters ), soft, fresh homemade bread & a lovely pot of Earl Grey tea. Not many places you can get a light lunch for exactly a fiver! I'll... More

Thank you to all the staff at the activity centre and in particular William who was really patient teaching archery and target shooting with my son and daughter. This place is a great find kids love it, the sledging is great fun for adults as well with or without snow. we will be back next year.

Where do you go to to get a really good Sunday lunch--well the rather unlikely setting of Deeside Activity Park. This place was recommended to me by a friend who was raving about the Cairnton Beef that they serve on a Sunday. Four of us booked to go, and we were certainly not disappointed.

We had a great time staying at the nearby Cairnton farm cottages and enjoyed a family taster trip to Deeside activity park as well. We tried the shooting, quad biking and go karting. All of which were great, but I probably (personally wouldn't both with the shooting again) although my boys enjoyed it. The quad biking was brilliant, Will our... More
