Our adventure near Hawkshead (the jewel in our crown) has always proved a popular day out. Built on a side of a hill, it feels seriously high. And that's because it is. Enjoy our epic Tree Top Adventure in the Lakes. Swinging through the canopy...more

I went to Go Ape with a friend and we had a great time. It's a fun way to spent a day swinging in the trees. The crossings and zip lines are varied and the Tarzan swing is a great way to end the day!
