Highest Go Ape in the country plus NEW Forest Segways It's so high you can see all the way to Scotland. Enjoy a Tree Top Adventure with us in our beautiful forest, riding zip slides through skies, over water and in England's only true mountain forest. We're sure you'll love the spectacular views of the Lake District. Swinging through the canopy, wiping out at the bottom of zip wires and going on an adventure brings people together like nothing else we've ever seen. It really does. We'll brief you for safety before you fly down our zip-wires, leap off our Tarzan Swing and tackle our crossings whilst enjoying some of Britain's most breathtaking scenery. And you can get off road and enjoy our epic forest adventure with Go Ape Forest Segway - an awesome segway experience in the Lakes with a down to earth twist. A great idea for a day out in the North Lakes (and home to Bassenthwaite ospreys), this is Go Ape at its most untamed.

We had a mens' retreat here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You pay £33/adult for the treep top adventure, but it takes a good 2.5-3 hours and you get your money's worth. Go Ape is what it is cracked up to be. Great group activity.

10 and 11 year old boys loved it. Not difficult but a must do at some point. Not sure we will rush back to do it again as took over 3 hours as it was fairly busy and some slow people up front but it didn't really compromise the enjoyment. Had to book but there were available spaces in half... More

This was something I'd wanted to do for ages and I wasn't disappointed! I'm not great with heights but managed to complete all of the obstacles - something I'm proud of. It was great fun and I got to spend a good afternoon just hanging about in the tree tops with my mates.

I do not like heights, at all. But I don't let that stop me! I've been to Go Ape in Cannock and found it really intense and terrifying, but I loved any minute. In light of this, I thought I'd attend the one that was closer to home. The course was similar, but there was a few changed parts, which... More

I suffer with anxiety and panic disorder, with the added complaint of fear of heights. Lovely setting, staff wonderful. I only managed the 1st level, but my hubby completed all 5 levels. The staff were fantastic, when I finished the 1st level I was very anxious, no pressure to complete the rest and I was given a cup of tea... More

Great training made me feel 100% safe and therefore I really enjoyed it even though I'm not over keen on heights. Wanted to go round again when got back.. I love zip wires! I'm not some young thing by the way..am 54.

Great activity to do for all ages really. I personally was too scared to even finish stage 2 so I just watched my boyfriend go around the whole place instead. He enjoyed it very much. I amazing got my money back and I hope to conquer my fears and try it again some day!
