Sherwood

Go Ape Sherwood packs a punch with four brilliant outdoor adventures to get stuck into. Be prepared for some serious speed on the Challenge course where the tandem zip wire speedometer can hit 20 mph. Kids are spoilt for choice with a Treetop Adventure course and one of the only two 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 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.

Just a short walk to Go Ape and everything Sherwood Pines has to offer, the cosy cabins blend harmoniously into the forest landscape and are almost hidden from view.

  • We had a lot of fun my family of 4, 2 toddlers and a baby under 1 year old. The staff went above and were extremely helpful. It was Feb when we visited the Sherwood Pines venue so not as busy as I can imagine the summer to be. We brought our own food as it was already expensive to have purchased online which leads to, why do they charge that amount for toddlers as it seems a little steep. Overall we would return but unfortunately only on special occasions.

  • What a fantastic day! Lots of fun and different challenges. Would do it again and there are different routes you can take on the tree top adventure so it would be different a second time round.
