Overview

Take a trip up a tree and create some fantastic family memories! Tree climbing is great for ages 8 to 80, and our friendly, expert instructors will teach you the ropes before you ascend into the canopy of our magnificent oak tree. Enjoy beautiful views, swing around in the canopy or simply unwind in our special treetop hammock. With tea and flapjack waiting for you on the ground, tree climbing with Goodleaf is a tree top experience like no other.
