South Barrule & Archallagan Forest Adventures

Both a stone’s throw from your cottage!

For amazing views & history, climb to the top of South Barrule:

South Barrule Hill Fort

Within the forest:

Ape Mann Adventure Park – find your way through the rope courses, crawl through the sky barrels, take on the leap of faith, and whiz down the long zip-lines. The park’s rope courses have been built using a continuous lifeline system, so no clipping on and off as you go around the activities, making it great fun for all ages. The family rope course is suitable for children and adults to have fun on together, there’s the high rope course for the more adventurous, and there’s also one of the UK’s highest sets of Monkey tree climbing hardware which is a challenge for anybody with a head for heights!

Lazer Mayhem – Operated by Ex-Soldiers with a combined experience of over 35 years, with backgrounds in Special Forces, Laser-Mayhem is a state-of-the-art team or individual recreational activity where players (from the age of 6) attempt to score points by tagging targets, typically with a hand-held infrared-emitting targeting device. All our sessions are 2.5 hours which includes: 7 different missions. Unlimited ammo. Choice of laser gun (little and light UZI 9mm guns for the young ones or bigger MP5’s for the teenagers/adults). Full military combat coveralls are provided together with camouflaged face-paint!

Right beside Lazer Mayhem you’ll also find Quad Bike Mania and in the next few months The Coffee Cabin will be opening.

Segway – By far the most popular tour is the the adventurous Segway Safari inside one of the Islands beautiful forests. You will be rewarded with outstanding views and have more fun than you’ve ever had on two wheels standing up!

Bring or hire a bike  – We have safe storage and washing facilities for bikes and if you can’t bring your own, we can arrange for bikes to be hired & delivered to the farm.
