Sherwood Pines, Nottinghamshire

Go Ape Sherwood packs a punch with four brilliant outdoor adventures to get stuck into.

Be prepared for some serious speed on the Treetop Challenge course where the tandem zip wire speedometer can hit 20 mph. Kids are spoilt for choice with Treetop Adventure and Treetop Adventure Plus courses and one of the only three Nets Adventures in the UK. Decisions, decisions. Bounce in the clouds or climb up to the clouds?!

If you love to go off-road, hop on to one of our all-terrain Forest Segways and explore the varied terrain and beautiful woodlands.

HIGH ROPE HIJINKS

Near to Robin Hood’s infamous Major Oak hideout, Go Ape Sherwood can be found 20-miles from Nottingham. The 100-year-old pines provide a high canopy and although the woodland is open, you’ll find our high ropes course nicely hidden.

If, after tackling the Big Four of Go Ape fun, you’re still up for more, there are over 3,300 acres for you to explore. The largest forest in East Midlands could keep the family busy for days!

Bring or hire bikes to take advantage of the popular cycling routes. 

Sherwood Pines is a regional centre of excellence with a marked Family Trail, Adventure Trail and the more demanding Kitchener’s Trail.

There are also two walking routes including the Dragonfly Trail which has an all-weather walking surface and children’s play areas.

Want to be at one with nature? You can sign up for a bushcraft course and learn the skills of shelter building, fire lighting, willow weaving and traditional woodworking.

Finish off with a relaxing drink and bite to eat at the Sherwood Pines Café.

  • The kids and I thoroughly enjoyed the Tree Top Junior ropes course. We liked that they were able to get their confidence on the easier course and then challenge themselves with the trickier course. All staff were friendly and encouraging and the whole experience, from online booking to arrival and the course itself was well organised and professional. Would certainly come back.

  • Fabulous experience at the Net Kingdom at Sherwood Pines! We took 5 children between the ages of 7 and 13 and a great time was had by all. My only recommendation to improve the experience would be to segregate the pre-booked clients and the book on the day as you end up waiting around a little too long. Would highly recommend this experience 😊

  • My first time going and I really enjoyed it, I don't have the best confidence in front of people but it was so much fun and I would do it again.

    Jasmine McGregor

  • Great fun, especially for our three boys who went round three times in the allotted time!

    Mike Hall

  • I am wring something to get passed this stage.

    Mark Howells

  • The 4 children I brought had a great time and it's pretty good value for money. Not quite as good as the tree top nets in North Wales. I really don't think it's necessary to have an adult signature for each child separately, and as for asking adults to specify their exact age, this is ridiculous! Overall we'd do it again and would recommend.
