Great falconry experience
Jul 2021 • Family
Spent half a day at the falconry experience.
Well worth it ,beautiful surroundings at Mount Ephraim ,the birds were amazing too .
Tom was a great host ,very informative, well spoken & made the experience even better.
Little bit of walking involved so wear comfy shoes ,an elderly gentleman struggled a little but he was 83 so fair play

Great day out
Jul 2021 • Friends
Had a great half day at Joes Bows Chafford Park site with my grown up sons.
Relaxed friendly and knowledgeable team and safe experience.
In between target and field archery, axe and shovel throwing and crossbows seemed to spend rest of the time laughing

Can’t wait to book up another session.

Fantastic Team Building Day!
Jul 2021
We went to Joe's Bows for a team building day and had such a great time. The activities we did were clay shooting and archery and both were great fun. We would recommend them both and would go again.

Fantastic day
Jul 2021 • Couples
We went on the 15 July 2021.

Our Falconer was Tom and he made the day brilliant for us.
From eagles to the little elf owl, to the amazing falcon.
Set in stunning surroundings as well.
To see the falcon which was the world's fourth fastest bird, fly from a high tree some 200 yards away at speed, to snatch the lure from Tom at such devastating accuracy, was something I'll never forget.

Well worth the visit, even my wife who was a spectator had a great day, even after one of the birds decided it was a good idea to land on her head.

Joe's Bows Group Morning Target Session 3rd July 2021
Jul 2021
I had booked this event for my sister's 30th birthday after a friend had brought a small group of teenagers here in 2020. We were a group of 9 people and despite the drizzly weather we had a wonderful time.
On arriving Gemma guided us to the main hub and to our instructor Phoebe who brought us down to a little coppice wood for our Robin Hood-like experience.
After the initial safety talk we divided up into teams and were given a bow and a quiver complete with arrows and took a few practise shots. Thereafter we began scoring...and giggling. We whooped and cheered as though we were at a firework display – particularly at the Axe throwing area, where some of our group showed a real talent for lobbing weapons at wooden walls!
Moving from one shooting range to the next proved an extra adventure with some of us wearing less suitable shoes for muddy, slippery slopes (if it has rained when you’re due to go wear good walking trainers/boots or wellies).
This is a great team activity for friends, family and work colleagues; it is a light hearted event and even those with no prior skill can have a go and see progress.
Phoebe, our instructor, was warm, friendly and fair and looked after us impeccably well. We all came away happy with our morning and I certainly will be booking again in the future. We also received a group discount as there were more than six of us – bonus!
Thank you so much Joe’s Bows.
