How to find us

By Car:

Please note: Go Ape is not signposted until you are at the entrance to Haldon Forest Park itself.

From the North: There are 4 main roads that lead to the A38 to Plymouth which has the exit sign to"Haldon Forest" (and Go Ape!) M5 Southbound (becomes the A38), A377 (from Barnstaple, which joins the A30), A30 (from Okehampton, joins the A38), A379 (from Countess Wear and joins the A38 at Kennford)

Ensure you are on the A38 to Plymouth when the road splits into the A380 (Torquay) and the A38 Plymouth. The road becomes a steep hill with three lanes.

Ensure you are in the left hand lane before the top of the hill as the turn off at the "Haldon Forest" & Exeter racecourse"(and Go Ape!) sign has no slip road and is a very sharp left turn.

At the mini roundabout turn right and head past the entrance to Exeter racecourse, underneath an underpass and straight on for over a mile. Turn left into Haldon Gateway.

From the South: There are 2 main roads from the South: A380 (from Torquay) A38 (from Plymouth/Cornwall)

From the A380 northbound you will find an exit sign to "Haldon Forest & Exeter racecourse" (and Go Ape!) just before a service station. Follow this road straight (sign posted Haldon Gateway) over a mini roundabout, past the entrance to Exeter racecourse, underneath an underpass and straight on for over a mile. Turn left into Haldon Gateway.

By Bus:

The 360 bus from Exeter Bus Station to Bridford stops at Haldon Belvedere several times a day (except Sundays and Bank Holidays). Please see the Traveline timetable for times or phone Traveline on 0871 200 22 33.

You can then join the trails through the woods, from the layby. It's a fair walk from there, so you may want to consider getting a taxi or uber.

You should wear something that you don’t mind getting grubby. Dress for the weather so bring along a mac if it’s raining!

You need to make sure you have the correct footwear with closed toe and heel (with flat soles), no sandals or slip-off shoes.

Your stomach area will need to be covered and long hair must be tied back.

You can join the Treetop Challenge at Go Ape if you're:

  • Minimum age: 10 years old
  • Minimum height: 1.4m
  • Maximum weight: 130kg

Please note: Adults must supervise children between the ages of 10-15.

  • Under 13: One participating adult can supervise four children aged 12 and under.
  • 13-15 Years Old: One adult can supervise up to eight children aged 13-15 years while on the course or on the ground.

Go Ape is an excellent wet weather activity! The course remains open in all weathers, except when it is icy, stormy, in high winds or during lightning. Rain makes the course muddier than usual – which all adds to the fun! Don’t forget to dress for the weather.

Sometimes, unfortunately, a course may need to be closed for reasons beyond Go Ape's control, if this happens you will be given a full refund.
