Delamere

Delamere Forest is home to four awesome Go Ape activities for adventurers of all ages.

Young children over 1m tall will have the best day out tackling Treetop Adventure.

For children above 1.2m and over 6 years old, why not try Treetop Adventure Plus which offers more thrills and challenging crossings.

Treetop Challenge is for older children, teens and adult adventurers, but this is a high one – 12 metres up and the stunning views are worth it. 

Prefer to stick to the forest floor? No worries! Our all-terrain Forest Segway experience is one you'll never forget.

So many adventures to discover

There's an adventure for everyone at Delamere Forest, with three tree top experiences to choose from and Forest Segways to explore the woods. 

You and the family can spend the entire day at Cheshire's largest area of woodland. Delamere Forest is home to a rare ‘quaking bog’ and the beautiful Blakemere Moss – a flooded wetland formed during the Ice Age. 

You'll also find a number of easy-going walking trails with incredible views and plenty of wildlife. 

Bring your bikes or hire some if you‘d like to explore the forest on two wheels. Or for an extra dose of fun, enjoy a ride on one of our Forest Segways!

Gruffalo Orienteering is a fun family map reading challenge. Using a simple map can you and the children find the twelve Gruffalo markers hidden deep in the wood?

Worked up an appetite? Bring a picnic or grab a bite to eat and a drink at the café in Delamere Forest.

  • 7 of us went on the junior course, four adults and three children aged 5, 7 and 8. We all really enjoyed it, even though it was the junior course it was still challenging in parts for adults. We all loved the zip wire and got to do it several times. I liked the way the hour experience only started after we had our harness on and had our safety instruction and a little practice. We managed to go round the course several times but it didn’t get boring it was still fun each time. All the instructors were really friendly and encouraging if children found parts of it difficult. The only negative is it is expensive for a family to do plus the parking is quite expensive at Delamere too.
