Axe Throwing | The Wild Boar

Book a Table:

The ancient woodland at The Wild Boar creates the perfect backdrop for guests and visitors to try their hand at the lumberjack inspired sport of axe throwing.

Axe Throwing

Set within the ancient woodland of The Wild Boar, near Windermere, guests and visitors can try their hand at axe throwing. Under the watchful supervision of Mike Coates participants will be tutored in the skilful techniques required to throw a variety of axes at wooden targets. This activity is open to all but is great for groups of friends or small parties as you vie with one another to be the first to hit the bullseye mark.
