Things to do at Go Ape Matfen review

Go Ape at Matfen, Tyne and Wear has been built in the grounds of a Country House Hotel. It is nestled within one of the UK’s most unspoilt areas of natural beauty located just 15 miles west of Newcastle. The site is home to a Treetop Challenge and Axe Throwing

Treetop Challenge – The course is one of the few Go Apes to be built within deciduous trees and has a mixed woodland scenery that will seem different with each visit. You can try out Stirrups one of the more extreme obstacles and there is even a replica Tyne Bridge. Plus a half trapeze, Tarzan Swings, Skateboard zip and more. The challenge takes 2 to 3 hours to navigate your way around. There is a minimum age of 10 years and a minimum height of 1.4m.

Axe Throwing – This is a new group adventure where you can get back to your roots and channel your inner warrior with an hour of stress-busting Axe throwing. This is only for the more grown-up visitors as there is a minimum age limit of 16.

Duration times including safety briefings. Once you’ve had your treetop fun why not check out the local area? The hall itself has a 27-hole golf course and there is the picturesque village of Matfen nearby with a village green, stream and a pub.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
