Moors Valley

Nestled between the New Forest and the beaches of the south coast, Moors Valley is a picture perfect location for an adventurous day out. With a whopping five adventures available, there’s an adventurous experience for all thrill and skill levels.  

Little ones can bounce through the dappled canopy of the Nets Adventure – giant, ball filled suspended nets!  

If your young daredevils are looking for high thrills, Treetop Adventure is the perfect entry level into the treetops with wobbly crossings and over 70m dual zips!  Treetop Adventure Plus lets you climb higher, leap and crawl your way through twisty crossings and take on an even longer zip!  Treetop Challenge is the big one for ape sized adventurers! You’ll feel like a real monkey as you clamber 11m skywards and master your landing on five zip lines – one of which includes a skateboard!  

Prefer to stay on the ground? We’ve also got an hour of challenging woodland trails if you’re up for exploring on our all-terrain Forest Segways

MORE ADVENTURE AT MOORS VALLEY

This award-winning location is just 10-miles north of Bournemouth. A popular, buzzing site, Moors Valley welcomes around 750,000 visitors each year and with acres of forest and park jammed pack with things to do, there’s something for everyone.

There are two adventure play areas - one for older children with a zip slide, space net, climbing boulder and a fortress of towers and crossings and a younger children’s area with gentler slides and swings.

Pack up the kids and head for the Play Trail (suitable for pushchairs). 

They will love discovering and exploring the wooden play structures such as the giant Ants Nest, Snake Pit and Crocodile Crossing.

On your way around look out for the Tree Top Trail, a five-metre high, 200-metre long wooden walkway up in the trees (sorry, this bit is not suitable for pushchairs).

If you like a leisurely walk, there are many miles of paths and tracks for you to explore the park and forest. There are also five cycling trails so bring the bike or hire some and try one of the family, moderate or challenging routes.

Bring a picnic or grab a bite in Seasons Restaurant.

  • It was amazing, couldn't recommend it more. the instructions were clear for the harness. By having simple and harder roots in places we could choose witch we could achieve waist still being outside our comfit zone (witch I love being). I would recommend doing it early in the day so that you are full of energy and can go to the café after (for some lorded fry's) as it was closed when we did the 2:30 session and took 2hrs to get round it.
