Forest Adventure!

The Forest Adventure is currently open at weekends. Tickets for the following weekend will go on sale on Thursday mornings.

Broom House Farm’s Forest Adventure offers Durham’s most exciting action packed fun family day out…or just a lovely green leafy space to take a walk with the family.  Follow the numerous nature trails, attempt the woodland challenges…climb the towers, whizz down slides, fly along the zip wires and dare to enter the tunnels.

Enter the Forest Adventure, choose your path and use your instincts to explore the woodland. Test your skills on the oak tree walk – balance beams, tunnels and slide. Underneath is the oak tree challenge, can you get round our circuit of obstacles and challenges without touching the ground?

If you’re not up for the physical challenges on offer, have a go at some of our forest quizzes.  From dragon hunting to deer tracks, frogs to fairies, word searches to learning about our woodland trees, there’s something for everyone, young and old.

SEASON TICKETS –   Unfortunately we are not currently offering season tickets for 2021 as everything is so unpredictable.

PUSHCHAIRS & WHEELCHAIRS  – we are often asked whether the Forest Adventure is suitable for pushchairs/wheelchairs.  There is a special gate for wheeled vehicles to the left of the main entrance bridge.  Once inside, the main paths are fairly hard and covered with woodchip, but they are not tarmac/concrete.  It all depends on the pushchair/wheelchair, but we find that most pushchairs are easily wheeled around the wood, as are the more rugged, lighter wheelchairs.  Some paths and equipment are not accessible, but there is access to all the quiz stations and you can leave you pushchair in the wood (at your own risk) if that suits you.  Obviously after heavy rain/in the colder months there may be mud/puddles – do ring for an update

We offer a 100% Carer’s Discount on production of a Durham carers card, Max card or similar proof together with photographic ID.  Put simply we offer a free ticket for a carer when accompanying one full priced ticket holder.  May not be used with other special offers. Please buy your other tickets online and then bring proof that you are a carer together with ID and we will make sure you get a free ticket.

Some of the paths may be muddy and that wooden bridges and play equipment can be extremely slippery when wet. For your protection please wear sturdy shoes such as walking boots/trainers and sensible outdoor clothing with long sleeves and trousers rather than shorts/dresses – as these will  help prevent prickles and scratches. Flip flops and similar shoes are NOT recommended. For extra fun dress in your best woodland camouflage gear!

DOGS! Friendly dogs are welcome in the Playfield, Forest Adventure and Coffee Shop but must be kept on a lead at all times.
