I was given the responsibility of organising a stag a do and having been let down but a number of different accommodation choices I got in touch with Greg at Hard Days Knight.

I explained my budget constraints and what I was looking for and within minutes of the phone call he had sent me an email with his recommendations.

We opted for the holiday cottages located at the shooting club.There were fantastic.

Greg was always on the end of the phone or via email and answered lots of questions for me.

If you want an easy,hassle free way of organising a stag or hen do give Greg a call.

I recently had my stag do with HDK a couple of weeks ago and would definitely recommend them. Myself and the lads were so impressed with the self catering accommodation. Incredibly clean and tidy and in the best location.

We had a BBQ there on the Friday night which was all set up ready for us when we arrived. All we had to do was throw the burgers on. The breakfast at the clubhouse was spot on and set us up for some brilliant activities.

Greg was incredibly organised and sorted our activities, extreme quad trekking and zombie uprising. Both were brilliant activities and would do them again! All of the lads are talking about our next visit!

I would thoroughly recommend Hard Days Knight for booking a group activity weekend. Greg was extremely helpful and efficient and always returned my calls. Greg is definitely a good salesman, but always follows through by sticking to his word and giving a top notch service.

He did under-quote a price for accommodation, which meant it cost slightly more than I'd expected. However, when I mentioned this Greg honoured the originally quoted price and gave me a full refund for all overpaid money. This was very honourable and much appreciated.

The log cabins were perhaps a little rustic given the price, but they were clean, tidy and everything functioned fine. The hot tub was great and the BBQ was great for 14 hungry lads! Be a bit careful with the logs cabins as there are often double beds and sofa beds, so there could be some intimate sharing!

The raft building was a lot of fun and a great laugh splashing around in the reservoir! A perfect recovery activity for a very fuzzy head!

All in all a great one stop solution to an amazing weekend!

Took 12 guys to 'The Granary' at Somersel Cottages for the weekend, along with some gokarting and a minibus pub crawl all organised by HDK. The location of the accommodation was stunning, with the rooms themselves being in good condition and facilities (BBQ, dishwasher etc) coming in very handy! (the pool table was a little damaged, but thats to be expected at a place ideal for stag/hen dos!)

We had a grand-prix event for the gokarting which was great fun - the guys down at midland karting were so flexible for our group and got into the spirit of the fun.

We also had a minibus pub crawl for 4 hours on the saturday night, which made life SO much easier than planning one ourselves - considering the pubs tend to all be a bit far apart it makes so much sense to get someone else (in our case, Keith!) to navigate through the drunken haze for you :)

Both the stag and me gave the weekend a 10/10 - in no small part down to Gregs hospitality and great help. Would recommend to anyone looking for a similar weekend of countryside banter!

Thanks for providing us with a beautiful farmhouse for my sisters hen do at the weekend. The house was very charismatic and traditional which we liked. The facilities went down a treat! Loved the tennis courts, pool table and BBQ! The location was extremely picturesque and there were lots of activities nearby to choose from. We went shooting at Yeavley Estate which was so much fun and there is a pub literally down the road which was lovely Yeavley arms
