Our first adventure to be built in the grounds of a country house hotel, Go Ape at Matfen Hall is nestled within one of the UK's most unspoilt areas of natural beauty. Located just 15 miles west of Newcastle in the charming village of Matfen, swing through the trees and fly down the zip wires while lapping up some of the finest scenery in Northumberland.

Wear sensible clothes for adventure
Footwear must be sturdy and suitable for the outdoors. No sandals, slip off shoes, open toes or heels.
Gloves are a good idea. Bring a pair or buy them at the cabin on the day.
Parking is free, don't worry about bringing change
