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.

Forest Segway closed from 2nd December - Spring 2020.

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.

  • booked for my sons 12th birthday. all kids had a brilliant time and the staff were really helpful. going in we are a little apprehensive as we had to split in to 2 parties to clime. the staff organised them so there was a minimal start time. also we booked the shelter thinking that we'd have to wait till after they climes to set up, but the staff said we could go straight in which was really helpful. overall, very very pleased and would definitely recommend
