Near to Robin Hood’s infamous Major Oak hideout, Go Ape Sherwood Pines 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 Go Ape adventure, you’re still up for more fun, 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.

    This is the 1st time with family outdoor with my son and his age is 11. We had a great fun and adventures. We loved it. Will definitely make my calender booked for next time and more. I really enjoyed and playing. The guy named SEB at Sherwood was very friendly and cleared all my son doubt. He explained each and every thing regarding the safety and how to handle. Special thanks to him and his team. All staffs are good with their smiley faces. I strongly recommend who ever needs to relax and get their physical build and get motivated by yourself with different level of challenges. I could write more pages..... But in one word. I loved it. I will recommend to my friends and families members. I shall come along with them. Haahhaha
