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.

Forest Holidays cabin at Sherwood Pines
  • Excellent, would highly recommend. Booking was easy online, the staff were friendly and everything went brilliantly. We had a great time.

    J Bridges

  • Excellent place to spend time as a family for the day, plenty to do. Cafe at Sherwood Pines gets very busy so worth taking a packed lunch and drinks. Pre-Book the activities online if there’s a few of you so you get the same time slots. (Allow 2-3hrs for the advanced high ropes course) You do get a 15% voucher if you ask for your completion certificate at the end.

  • 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.
