Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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.

“My son waited 5 years for this”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

And the day did not disappoint. We were in the Lake District years ago and he was too young for Go Ape. We had a fantastic day, well worth the money. A little disappointed in some of the waiting, but all in we had a great day of zip lining. The restaurant at the visitor enter was excellent.

“Brilliant forest walks”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Fantastic forest walks and you don't have to get very high to see stunning veiws. The cafe does brilliant coffee and breakfasts, and is a must do on any trip to Keswick.

“Expensive fun”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

A group of five twenty something's spent a good day here completing walks ad the mountain biking trails.
However, there were two things that slightly spoilt our stay.
Firstly, it's over five pounds to park, much more than anticipated.
Secondly, when we went to hire the mountain bikes although the centre was open for longer than our rental time the cyclewise store insisted we brought them back to base 30 mins earlier than our session ended. And only told us AFTER we paid.
This meant some of us could only complete the blue trail whereas the speedier cyclists could get ahead to do both.

All in all a good day with a well stocked cafe (important for thirsty walkers!)

“High wires high pass”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Another great Go Ape location but this also has great views of the surrounding fells. Great cafe on site (Siskins) with lovely homemade cakes and lunch food
