Open 7 days a week all year round from 9.00a.m till 5.00pm
We bowled up for Evie's birthday treat one Sunday afternoon with much anticipation. Eve, 10, Lottie, 8, Jenny, 15 and me (?). After a thorough talk through of what we would be expected to do, fitting of harness and a stroll up the hill we reached the beginning with much excitment.
You will start off on the beginners / introductory ropes to give you an idea of what you're in for - fortunately the girls were raring to go so we did this once and we were off.
There's an element of comfort on this course because you are PERMANENTLY attached - no unharnessing just the occasional yank on your wire-rope to pull it around a tree trunk. Lottie tested out the safety element a couple of times dropping off a log and delightedly dangling mid-air laughing her socks off - she was awesome pulling her-self back up too.
We had the best time - terrified and tree-hugging at one point to careering towards a 'spiders-web' the next - the joy on Evie's face after mastering that brought tears to my eyes.
The staff are fantastic and it was down to them that we got around. Eve and Lotts did a superb job in over-coming any reservations they may have had of jumping across a HUGE hole (well it looked it) to walking across a plank, to throwing themselves off on a free fall 40ft drop - my legs crumpled when I landed, much to my disgust - Lotts threw her-self off flapping her arms!!!!
Do visit - it's a fantastic way to push yourselves in as safe an environment as it can be - and the grins at the end are so worth any drama that you might experience going round.
The Tree Tot Trail is available too - the perfect starter course especially for little adventurers!
