Everything you need to get the most out of your stay

Treetop Adventure

Go Ape!
Situated in 6000 acres of ancient woodland, the Wyre Forest is one of largest remaining ancient woodlands in the UK, and so provides the perfect setting for an adrenaline-fuelled day out. Full of hire-wires, wobbly crossings and heart-stopping zip-lines, Go Ape! is an ideal day out for families. We advise to book sooner rather than later in the busy spring and summer months to avoid disappointment.
