Enter your start address:

By car
Take the A48 to Blakeney and then follow the brown signs to Go Ape!
Our postcode (GL15 4HD) won't always take you to the exact location so it's best to ignore it and head to Blakeney then follow the (small) Go Ape signs to head up to the cabin. You'll need to keep your eyes peeled but this is the best way of getting to Go Ape.
Due to the rural nature of our locations, postcodes are not always accurate when using sat-nav directions. Please always cross reference with a map.
Please note that the following parking charges apply at the Forest of Dean: £3.50 all day
By train
The nearest railway station is at Lydney Station which is approximately 6½ miles from Mallards Pike Lake.
By bus

It's not easy to access Go Ape by public transport - we really are out in the sticks!
