Have an adventure and get closer to nature in Stand wood by taking part in our big tree climb. With up to eight people being able to climb at a time, this is a great family activity and offers a safe and fun way to enjoy trees from a new perspective. It will test your balance and co-ordination, and you'll feel a huge sense of achievement when you've reached the top – there's a great view up there too! 

Climbs will be led by a fully qualified instructor from the Great Big Tree Climbing Company, the largest provider of recreational tree climbing in the country.


Where will the big tree climb take place?
The big tree climb will take place by The Dell in Stand Wood. Once parked head towards Stand Wood and the farmyard at the back of the car park. Follow the road towards the farmyard and then cross the road through the gate and walk up the woodland path towards the entrance to Stand Wood. Once at the entrance to Stand Wood follow the signs to the big tree climb location where you will be met by the team. Please allow at least 30 minutes to park and reach the location for your timed slot.

Is this suitable for adults?
Yes, this activity is great fun for adults and children alike.

What is the minimum age to take part?
Participants must be a minimum of 6 years old.

How physically demanding is the tree climb?
The climbing technique does require you to have a reasonable level of strength in your lower and upper body. The majority of work is done with your legs but participants are required to be active and healthy. Instructors are able to help children who struggle but adults who are unable to carry out the technique will not be pulled up by instructors.
