A triple whammy of adventure

Adventure comes threefold at Delamere with Treetop Challenge, Treetop Adventure and Forest Segways. 

You and the family can spend the entire day at Delamere Forest. 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.
