Amusing change of activity. Good range of bows. The range was a bit short to be challenging, but even then some archers managed to hit the ground or the sky. Muddy, so be prepared .

Dear John,
Thank you for your review.
Cotswold Archery are based on an old meadow on the side of a hill, it will unfortunately get muddy when rained on, especially with all the footfall it has to endure every archery experience.
All potential archers are advised to wear appropriate sturdy waterproof footwear in our confirmation of booking emails, it is usual to find on any given archery experience at least two or three archers that have not read the advisory notes.
The range is set at 18 meters, this distance is just right for those who have not had any archery experience, that is 85% of our clients and as you stated yourself it is a challenge for most archers to hit the target at this distance, let alone a longer distance.
Our speciality is giving archers the chance to try different types of bows, not challenging their aim at a distance. Retrieving arrows after a 25 meter or further distance would take longer, in turn less arrows shoot per archer.
Cotswold Archery are also governed by the Grand National Archery Society (our insurers) rules and regulations regarding safe distances for shooting at a novice level and all archery introductory experiences / courses.
