go ape adventures at Matfen, Newcastle

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.

  • 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!
