Zorbing
Aug 2017 • Family
Amazing. Staff were fantastic, we got stuck in traffic and arrived late, they waited for us and made us very welcome when we did arrive. All the staff were pleasant friendly and easy to talk to. We were made to feel welcome and not pressured at all. The staff helped make our experience relaxed and exciting. This was also a very good price. Thankyou for the fantastic experience.

Great Day out - Father/Son time
Apr 2017 • Family
Looks a little shabby when you arrive but please don't be put off by this!
All of the staff were fantastic and really supportive as my son learnt to shoot clay pigeons for the first time - they really made him feel confident and he end up with 10 clays hit from 25 shots.
This was followed by archery and rolling down the hill in a large Zorb ball.
Great day and thanks to all of the staff (especially Jim) who made the day really memorable.
Thanks again

Fab time quad biking!
Aug 2016 • Family
Don't be put off when you arrive, not the most attractive of places but definitely worth a visit.
It was my first experience of quad biking, my family had done it before and they were raring to go! Although I held them back as I wasn't fast enough, Jack our instructor was brilliant and made sure we all got the experience we wanted. Please note this isn't just going round and round a track you whizz off around a field and go through some woods, a great experience of what quad biking is about and I would imagine probably the best in Devon. Mum's don't sit on the side line get involved and I guarantee you'll have a great time. Thanks to Southdown Adventure and especially Jack, we will be back.

Fun day out!!
Jul 2016 • Couples
Visited here for my partners birthday. Done clay shooting and air rifling it was great fun. On arriving I questioned whether we was in the right place as it looks abandoned, but the experience of everything is what makes it. I booked way in advanced and a day before arriving they rang to change my time of day to start or not at all which wasn't ideal as I had other things planned but I worked around it.
All the guys there are really friendly and have a laugh with you while your there. The prices are not the worst as we had a really good time so made it worth it. All I would say is shut up for a month and work so hard at building a new reception instead of a shack and make the grounds visiting and not a dumping ground.

Fantastic place !
Aug 2016 • Family
We booked clay shooting, Air rifle shooting , Artery and Quad Biking. We had 2 instructors with us the whole time , who was patient and made each activity fun even though there was only 3 of us. I can not recommend this place enough and a must visit if you are on holiday in North Devon. This is a farm so it may need a bit of a refurb but do not let that spoil your time there , because the activity's are nothing short of excellent.

So much laughter!
Aug 2016 • Family
I visited here with my partners family, there were 8 of us and we went for the "Zorb Football". As well as football we also played human bowling, relay races, and bull dog. We all had a great time and laughed so hard. The chap who stayed with us was great too, very accommodating. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Management untrustworthy
Jul 2016 • Family
On visiting the site my first impression were not very good, most of the reception area looks very run down and tatty.
I was greeted by a young Man who was helpful and advised me of the prices per hour and the routes my Children would be following him.
I enquired how much the cost would've for both Children and was told £66 .00 for both for half an hour duration. The young Man told me that he was very pleased because he was quite busy that Morning with some group bookings.
They set off after 5 minutes of how to use and safety instructions .At that point a Family turned up who had been here before and said that they paid £36 for a full hour and not £36 for half an hour.As the reception area was unattended I noticed on the wall pinned up a price list clearly stating all rental buggies for £36 for one hour usage .
After half an hour the young Man returned and I approached him on my complaint of timings and charges, he agreed with me and said he would speak on the phone to his management who happened to be an elderly Woman who I had seen helped dress the boys up at the beginning of the preparation of the rides. He agreed it was cause of complaint and I suggested a 50% refund or a further half hour extension , the fact he had people waiting to pay and ride he decided to refund the difference which by the cheek of it she had agreed to give me back £20.00 and not £33 .00
At this point I quite firmly said look , you have admitted fault and are you having a laugh by offering me £20.00 . After 10 mins of me ranting and showing and disgust of the owner / Management the Woman appeared and reached into her till to offer to me the £33.00 .
This in my opinion is a show of untrustworthy management and gives what I thought we're decent Local Devonshire people a bad name , and in this case would not recommend in principal for anybody to use this activity Center whilst in visiting Devon on your holidays .

Great Day Out
Jun 2016 • Family
I booked the shooting package for my family while on holiday and we all had a great day. We started off with the clay pigeon shooting and were given excellent instruction all throughout the session, To increase the challenge we moved through 3 different stations with the targets being released from different heights and angles. We then moved on to archery and again received excellent instruction from another staff member. We finished the day off on the air rifle range and we all thoroughly enjoyed shooting at the variety of targets set up on the range.
The staff were very professional and accommodating during the visit and helped us all feel very relaxed which made this day out one of the best of our holiday.
As most of the activities are outside I would recommend that you take some warm clothing just in case the weather is inclement. We were very fortunate that we had the sun out and it was quite warm.
