Outdoor Activities in Northumberland
For many people in Britain when it comes to going away on holiday, this means staying at home. No, we don’t mean their own home, but in the beautiful British Isles. For many of us we can’t imagine any better place to spend a week or two but right here and why wouldn’t we? With some of the most beautiful landscapes, activities, history and food on offer, why would you not want to explore – after all there’s no place like home.
This year you and your tribe have found yourself travelling to Northumberland. Maybe you are travelling north, or maybe you have travelled south. No matter what direction you have come from, you have one thing in mind… an unforgettable holiday! To help make unforgettable memories, you need to organise an unforgettable outdoor activity Go Ape!
Go Ape Matfen
One activity you should definitely take part in while in the area is Go Ape! Set in Matfen’s 300 acres of historic parkland. Take your tribe and enjoy the view from the tree tops at Britain’s number one Tree Top Adventure.
Go Ape is a great day out for the whole family, as long as your baboons are 10 years or over and at least 1.4 meters tall, there is no reason why they can’t get up in the trees.
The course at Matfen has high ropes and zip wires, the longest being 160 metres long! So not for the faint hearted but is sure to have the little people grinning from ear to ear. Although at 11 metres it isn’t the highest Go Ape course in the country, it is certainly a great place to start. With 38 crossing it will take your tribe between 2 to 3 hours to complete, leaving you plenty of time to explore the beautiful parkland from the ground.
Take a blast back to the past
The wonderful thing about Go Ape is for the adults in the group it gives you a chance to get back in touch with your childhood. Doing what you used to do as a kid, climbing up in the trees. It’s the perfect opportunity to shake off that Monday to Friday suit and show the kids ‘how you used to do it when you were younger’. For the mini Tarzans in the group, it’s a great opportunity to do something that they wouldn’t get to do everyday, climbing in the trees. When we were younger we would scrabble around without any safety thoughts, however at Go Ape, safety is of the upmost importance. So you can be rest assured that your little ones are going to be safe at all times.
So what are you waiting for! When you visit the beautiful Northumberland, make sure you book your Tree Top Adventure at Maften.
