The kettle is always on, but please bring your own biscuits – no nutty ones thanks! (Or Hob Nobs-I’m s***k of them)!!


For matching arrows to you and your bow, I have a large selection of spined arrows, which you can try out on my 20yard outdoor range.

I am quite happy for you to bring any make of Longbow, Flatbow, recurve or Primitive bow to take advantage of this service.

However, Please Note: I charge £35 for this service unless you are purchasing a bow from me.

If you need tuition please see below.

RANGE HIRE:  You may use the range for £10.00 per hour per person (max. 3 people) for practice. You may hire a bow and arrows for £10.00 per hour per person (max 3 people). Please book/phone in advance, in case I am teaching.

Wooden arrows only. NO bodkins or broadheads


Going through a ‘sticky patch’? (We’ve all been there)!  Why not have an hour of tuition and lose

those bad habits!

One to one £49.00 per hour

Two to one £79.00 per hour

You may bring your own bow for tuition.

Please Note: DO NOT buy a bow that is too heavy for you to draw with ease.

 If you are a beginner, I will supply all you need. It is NOT necessary to buy a bow for your lesson.


NB. There is an automatic gate at the beginning of the drive. It is quite slow so be patient.

Speed limit 5 MILES PER HOUR!


It isn’t possible to buy a bow and expect untried arrows to suit how you shoot. It is far better to try many different combinations to see which suit YOU.

Buying arrows from the ‘web’, however pretty they may look, cannot guarantee they will shoot properly, or safely. Far better to take the time to come and have your arrows matched to how you shoot, here at my workshop.

At least you won’t go home with arrows that don’t shoot properly/straight! And you can see how it’s done!

Although I am quite happy to make arrows for you, do please make your own. (I’ll show you how). I’ve been making them for over thirty years, and it is getting a bit, sort of, tedious!!!
