Matfen

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.

HEAD TO THE WILDS OF NORTHUMBERLAND

Just 20 minutes from Newcastle you’ll find the National Park and a World Heritage Site. Newcastle has a couple of Go Ape claims to fame - it’s our only course with treetop crossings and activities designed and dedicated to local landmarks and it’s our first adventure to be built in the grounds of a country house hotel, Matfen Hall.

Once you’ve challenged yourself physically in the treetops and have your feet firmly back on the ground why not make a day of your time in the beautiful Northumberland countryside?

Head over to the picturesque village of Matfen with its lovely village green, stream and a pub if you fancy grabbing a bite to eat.

If you’re up for more physical activity Matfen Hall has a superb 27-hole golf course which is recognised as one of the finest in Northumberland.

If, on the other hand, you are physically done for the day then perhaps treat yourself to a relaxing session at the local spa.

  • Excellent day all round

    Tom Rackstraw

  • Really great place to take the kids. Took my 12 year old son and his friend and had a fabulous time. It’s high up but safety is their number 1 priority so you’ll be in good hands. All the instructors were excellent and very helpful. Walking through the trees, swinging like Tarzan and zip wiring down a 160m line to the ground. A really fun day out!

    Helen Tong
