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.

We booked 2.5h with Paul for a party of 14, kids 8-11 and adults mixed in. I phoned in advance to book as it's quite a large party, both Paul and Abby phoned me back and arranged what we could do, putting up extra ropes and allotting us an extra 30 mins. It was fantastic fun from the start -... More

We had an unforgettable day in the company of a beautiful tree and two wonderful instructors. Everyone in my family had a great time participating in this experience whether climbing high in the branches or watching from the ground around the tree. Safe, confidence building and fun. Highly recommendable.

We had a fabulous time! Paul & Grenville were absolutely brilliant and my 10 year old daughter absolutely loved swinging around and then relaxing in the hammock! This activity is an absolute must when visiting the island. Thanks guys for a great time and the flapjack was scrummy too :)

My husband (69yrs) and grandson (8yrs) both climbed in Appley Park, Ryde. It was a lovely activity and challenge for them to do together. The instruction was excellent, patient and inspiring. They can't wait to go again.
