  • Go Ape high ropes course

    I'm not sure who had more fun, me or the kids! I went with a 10 year old and 2 seven years olds. One slightly scared of heights, but with a bit of support from myself and some lovely staff members, had the best time ever! I would fully reccomend, such an exhilarating few hours.
