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.

  • Great experience for myself and my partner. Staff were very welcoming on arrival and explained everything in clear detail. It’s great that you are able to wander around with freedom at your own pace but also know that the instructors are there if needed. Had so much fun and the instructor gave my partner an extra little sticker at the end knowing it was his birthday which was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend and there is nothing to be scared about, really enjoyable!
