Husband and I booked the Segway as an activity to do on our way to a short break away. It was brilliant fun and the area is beautiful. Our instructor was friendly and engaging. We have done several Segway trips before and found this one was as enjoyable. It is easier than some as the terrain is straight forward. I would recommend this area to anyone as it is stunning and we found it very relaxing and tranquil.

The forest segway experience was amazing. The instructors are very friendly and helpful and give you a training session before you're able to go on the trail. It was so much easier to do that I'd expected and a lot of fun. We did around 5k but get to stop now and again and the instructors even take a photo for you. Well organised and a lot of fun. Can't wait to do it again one day!

We had a great time at GoApe today. We booked the treetop challenge and were so impressed, I’ve been before but my friend hasn’t and she was so nervous but our instructor Sean put her so at ease. We arrived and were with a large group of about 8 and another couple, but we went off first and didn’t even see the rest of the people on our time slot. We did the whole thing in about 2 hours and could’ve taken longer if we’d wanted! We never felt rushed and always felt safe and Sean popped up throughout the course and was really friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back

Family day out after a 12 year wait for the children to reach the minimum height... and it was totally worth it. Thought it would be 90 minutes worth of entertainment but actually it was 3-4 hours of non stop challenge. Caitlin took the safety induction and then popped up around the place making sure we were all ok, harnesses still fitted properly etc.
