Alice Holt

Get a treetop view of the beautiful South Downs. Located off the beaten track, the diverseness of Alice Holt is its highlight. 

With a Treetop Challenge and a Treetop Adventure, Alice Holt is ideal for thrill-seeking adrenaline junkies and full on, family fun. There are super high platforms and gut-wrenching crossings on the Challenge course whereas the Adventure route is the perfect learning ground for would-be tree climbers extraordinaire. It’s fair to say - there’s something for everyone.

You’ll find Alice Holt just four miles south of the historic town of Farnham. This royal forest offers royal views. Take your pick - Scots pines, meadows and ancient woodland are all here to be enjoyed.

Once you’ve climbed, balanced and zipped there’s plenty more to enjoy. Take in the beautiful woodland view as you explore the walks or on two wheels with one of the cycling trails. Children will be spoiled for choice with play areas, incredible wooden animal play structures, Gruffalo sculptures and the Timberline play trail.

Need more? New for 2019 is the Zog Activity Trail.

If you’re thinking Alice Holt is just for thrill seekers and children, think again! Farnham Angling Society fishes at Lodge Pond and if you get there for 9am on a Saturday morning you can join in on the weekly parkrun.

This is all hunger and thirst inducing fun. There are lots of food and drink options , with a picnic area and a café or you can stoke the charcoal and hire a BBQ.

  • Took our two children (10 & 8) to Go Ape at Alice Holt over the Christmas and New Year period and I have to say from the moment we arrived the experience was fantastic. Having booked online all we had to do on arrival was read the rules and complete and sign a very brief form, then it was on to harness fitting and a safety brief. Following the safety brief there is a small test type area so children and adults can get themselves acustomed to how the cable and attachments work. The staff were friendly, happy and engaging and interacted brilliantly with the children. Then it was on to the junior treetop course, there are two junior courses at Alice Holt with number 1 being a bit easier and shorter than number 2, which in turn lends itself to the slightly older and/or braver young monkey. The Zip wire at the end of each course provides a fun finish and you can then un-attach yourself and go back to the start to do it all again. Little monkeys have an hour do they can go around as many times as they wish or time allows. Our experience was absolutely brilliant and enjoyed by both of our children, can thoroughly recommend and we will definitely be returning for more tree top fun. Thank You to all of the Go Ape Staff.

  • Had a great time on the run with my young grandson. I intend to have a go with him on the next run when he is old enough.

  • Very friendly professional staff


  • My son (the birthday boy!) and his friends had a wonderful time at Go Ape in Alice Holt - it was the first time for most of them and they all came away absolutely buzzing with excitement and wanting to go again! Thanks to the staff who were very friendly and helped make our experience even better.


  • The team at Alice Holt Farnham were all amazing! Really helpful and friendly. Especially Dennis? Who helped out our daughter's friend who has autism when he was about to have a melt down because he was scared.
