An aerial adventure trio

There’s a stately feel to Go Ape Temple Newsam, despite being situated just four miles from the centre of Leeds. 

Based in estate grounds with a 500-year-old country mansion and beautiful woodlands, you’ll feel like Lord and Lady.

One of the many brilliant things about this course is that no matter how challenging the obstacles are, the permanent belay is quietly reassuring. So, once you’re hooked on, that’s it for the duration. All you need to do is concentrate on is having fun.

When you’re done, slip the harness off and head over to the Manor House, a truly impressive Tudor-Jacobean mansion described as one of the best stately homes in Britain.

The famous ‘Capability’ Brown designed the concept for the grassland, woodlands, views and vistas.

Sit back and enjoy a picnic in the lakeside garden or the Georgian walled garden. Alternatively, head over to the Tea Rooms for a bite to eat. If you’re partial to a bit of shopping, there’s also a gift shop.

Temple Newsam is also home to an award-winning rare breed conservation farm which is one of the best-loved family attractions in Leeds.

things to do in temple newsam

Know Before You Go

  • Wear sensible clothes for adventure.
  • Footwear must be sturdy and suitable for the outdoors. No sandals, slip off shoes, open toes or heels.
  • Gloves are a good idea. Either bring a pair or you can buy them at the cabin on the day.

make a day of it

  • Take a wander into the woods to discover the folly and explore the bridle paths.
  • Pay "Home Farm" a visit and meet the hundreds of rare-breed farm animals which live there.
  • Get some history and culture by having a look around Temple Newsam House.
  • Having tried Go Ape at Sheerwood Pines we decided to take our grand child to Temple Newsam. The staff were excellent and took time to convers with us and treated us and make us feel valued customers. I liked the way the various routes were set up to slowly increase the challenges and allow the people on it increase their confidence. We were fortunate that it it was not particularly busy and were allowed to repeat the routes many time. The only negative was that the nearest toilets were about a quarter of a mile away up a hill. Some people hadn’t bothered to make the trip as there was a st3nch of urine behind a shed. Toilets or Pietacabins need to be installed nearer. I would say this Go Ape was better than Sherwood Pines for young children

  • Great experience, my granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are eager to return soon. Staff all friendly and approachable and very aware when children were in difficulty.

    Alison Curtin

  • Considerable confusion around 13 year old level to enable activity on level 3 both at booking and on site. However a most enjoyable third experience for my 2 grandchildren ages 13 and 12!! Next time ages of participants will be 13 1nd 14 so both will be able to participate at level 3 with an adult on the ground. Great time had by all
