Sam Tawn, Pre-Wedding Celebration with Friends


"Having been a bit nervous about the idea of having a stag do and also not quite sure what to expect, I couldn't have been happier with my alternative experience at the meadow.


We had the entire place to ourselves out in nature which felt really special. We had a whole host of activities prepared that involved using the land and surroundings. We also had the opportunity to try out other activities on the land which were organised by Will such as Clay Pigeon Shooting.


There is a small lake on the land which you can swim in and there was a big tent set up for a communal area to eat and cook in if it rains, and of course to have a little bit of a party in!


It was an amazing alternative to a stag and I would recommend it to anyone or group that wants to have fun but also connect to nature and have a bit of a wild experience."
