Goodleaf Tree Climbing

Enjoy an offbeat adventure on the Isle of Wight at Ryde’s award-winning Goodleaf Tree Climbing.

Set in a stunning location, you can experience a two hour recreational tree climb up a magnificent oak tree within Appley Park, just moments from the golden sands of Appley Beach. Goodleaf’s friendly and experienced staff will be on hand to show you the ropes and before you know it you’ll be getting into climbing gear, ascending into the canopy and enjoying the high life.

There’s no pressure to reach the top, of course, but those that do will see a spectacular squirrel’s eye view across the Solent to Portsmouth, from 15 metres up. There are plenty of places to rest on the way up, so you can swing around or relax as you go.

Back on solid ground, top yourself up with tea, coffee or squash and try the fabled ‘tree climber’s flapjack’.

The two hour session includes everything you need for a fun and enjoyable experience for ages eight and over. What’s more, if you travel to Goodleaf on public transport, foot or bicycle, you’ll get a 5% discount on your climb.

What’s on?

Autism Friendly Fridays – New for 2019, on selected Fridays in the school holidays Goodleaf will be offering special sessions for people on the autism spectrum.

Family Woodland Adventures – Join Goodleaf as a family for a chance to take time out together away from the busyness of modern life and experience what it’s like to ‘just be’ in nature.

Guided Tree Top Camping – In the gorgeous grounds of Northcourt House, Shorwell, Goodleaf will be offering treetop camping in style.

And getting there couldn’t be easier. Goodleaf Tree Climbing is perfectly served by our Portsmouth to Ryde FastCat route, which crosses the Solent in just 22 minute. Or, if you’re bringing the car, it’s only a few minutes drive from our Fishbourne port. Book your ferry today!
