Sherwood Pines


Near Nottingham

Tree Top Adventure, Tree Top Junior and a Segway Adventure in Nottinghamshire

Just 20 miles from Nottingham. Our Tree Top Adventure in Robin Hood country features a tree to tree zip wire (one of the only tree top tree zip wires in the country!) We like to think these are the special Go Ape ingredient that makes the outdoor adventure at Sherwood Pines great for unique days out near Nottingham.

You can swing through our forest and get the best views over 3000 acres of woodland – A great place to escape and enjoy epic outdoor adventure activities in the forest.

And the adventure does not need to stop there. You can get off the beaten track and enjoy our latest forest adventure with Go Ape Forest Segway – an epic segway experience near Nottingham with a down to earth twist.

And Sherwood Pines is also home to our Tree Top Junior Adventure for Mini Tarzans. Release your little monkeys onto a Go Ape course designed for them. No one loves adventure more than kids!

Rated 5 Bananas Joanne - Tree Top Junior, on 13 October 2015
The kids love go ape, they got lots of go's, it's in a brilliant setting and it's good to see the funds are being put to good use by making things better, like new toilet facilities. The kids are still trying to get us grown ups to have a go so they can upgrade to the tree top adventure (adult required) , maybe one day we will pluck up the courage, regardless, We will be back.....
