The Award winning Goodleaf Tree Climbing provides the perfect offbeat adventure for anyone looking for something a little bit different the next time they enjoy a holiday in the Isle of Wight.
No matter how old you are, the adrenalin created by tree climbing never goes away. So if you’ve got a nerve for heights, head to Appley Park and enjoy a great day out for the whole family.
Goodleaf Tree Climbing advertises itself as being designed for the whole family, with ages eight and over welcome to the attraction. All that is required is a nerve for heights and a desire to get amongst the trees.
Located in the beautiful Appley Park in Ryde just behind the golden beach, you will enjoy a unique two hour recreational tree climbing experience like no other in a magnificent oak tree which is located in the centre of the park.
If you are willing, you can climb 15 metres high to a point where you will be able to enjoy stunning views over Appley Beach and the Solent. There is no pressure to reach the top though, you can go at your own pace and Goodleaf’s friendly staff are there before hand to show you the ropes and offering support where required.
There is also no need to be concerned about fatigue, with plenty of resting places during the ascent in the conveniently placed canopy hammocks. This is a no pressure environment which is designed entirely for family fun, so you won’t feel any pressure at any point.
Appleby Park is somewhat of a hidden gem of the region, and it’s not just popular with climbers. There are plenty of scenic walking routes to be enjoyed in the woodlands and also on Ryde beach which runs alongside the park. They will also be sure to have hours of fun in the children’s play area which sits between Goodleaf and the beach. This secure area features an exciting pirate ship climbing frame, so the adults can have a rest after all the climbing and simply enjoy the surrounding area.
If you’re looking for refreshments, you can enjoy tea, coffee or squash on the Goodleaf picnic blanket. We’d also recommend sampling one of their mouth watering Tree Climber’s Flapjacks!
Being located just less than six miles from Woodside Bay Lodge Retreat, Goodleaf Tree Climbing is ideally located and a great place to visit if you are looking for a fun family day out on the Isle of Wight.
