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.

Immersed in Robin Hood history and surrounded by statuesque pine trees, the Forest Holiday’s cabins are surrounded by 3300 acres of Nottinghamshire woodland for the adventurer at heart.

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.

  • Superb staff, enjoyed our hour on the nets (I took my 5 year old) but the price is just too much. I think when you come to sherwood pines the emphasis is on being out in the forest not to be spending so much money to entertain your children. Whilst we had to let my boy down 3 days earlier we booked it for half term. I only have one child, for larger families who may not have much disposable incomes it would be a real stretch. I’d suggest £7.50 per child with £5 for adults if they accompany a child. Net result for me would have been more than half price, £12.50, much fairer. Example for larger families 3 kids, £22.50, plus one adult, £27.50. Current price would be £60. As I say, great activity, great staff. Just think about the price.

  • Great day out, our 5 children loved monkeying around in the trees! They did the Go Ape Junior and loved every second. Very helpful and super friendly staff.

  • My daughter absolutely loves go ape, she had a fabulous time and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. She did the treetop junior challenge with her friend. The only problem we came across was the number of adults that were on the junior treetop, to one particular child there were 5 adults that made completing the course very slow as they were all waiting for each other and struggling far more than the children were, However I did mention this to a member of the go ape team and they were brilliant and gave my girls another go round the course. Overall a good experience and would return
