Treetop Challenge

Set amongst the stunning Northumberland scenery lies a high ropes course to truly test your nerve. Come and try out the Stirrups, one of the more extreme obstacles and a true test of strength and skill. For those that visit this North East site, a replica Tyne Bridge and a few other local landmarks await you in the trees. There’s the Half Trapeze and free-falling Tarzan Swings to brave before you tackle the ultimate challenge of the Skateboard Zip. You’ll definitely leave this course with a sense of accomplishment and an unrivalled view of the finest scenery in Northumberland.

  • Absolutely fantastic day out! We decided to go to Go Ape at Matfen Hall to celebrate our business being open 10 years. The guys were absolutely brilliant, everything was organised so well and we all had a fab day out. We had a wide range of ages taking part from 10 years old to 63!! It was brilliant, I would highly recommend this for a team building day, family party or just a fun day out :) Thanks again to the team at Matfen for looking after us and making us feel so welcome. We will definitely be back!

  • Had a fantastic time at Go Ape Matfen, the instructor was really helpful in guiding us through the first part as it was my first time here. The zip wires are so much fun, there's a knack to the landing, unluckily for me I didn't quite grasp it and had some spectacular crash landings, this just added to the fun. I would definately recommend this place to everyone, even if you are scared of heights, give it a go as you feel really safe all throughout the course with the safety wires you are always connected to. All in all we had a great time for my partners birthday. Thanks Go Ape!
