Tree Surfers is a place for family adventure.

Come as a family or drop the kids off for a day of adventure on one of our Kids Go Wild days (specific dates only.)Book online, give us a call or just drop in to take part in any of the activities. Test your limits on the tree top high ropes trail with zip wires, tarzan swings and ropes bridges. If that isn’t enough adrenalin for you then have a go at the Tree Jump a leap of faith to blow you away. For those who want to stay on the ground we have a woodland archery range where one of our instructors will give you full instructions and help develop your archery skills. Or you can just hire a bike to explore the 30kms of woodland trails, follow the heritage trails or pick up one of our family trail hunting maps. When its time to relax come back to our base to enjoy our Beech Café with stunning views across the valley. Tree Surfers is set within 100’s of acres of woodland in the Tamar Valley, a World heritage site and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


Tree Surfers has a wonderful new café called the Beech Café serving fresh coffee, teas, home made cakes, hot lunches and light bites. We have inside and outside seating with a large picnic area too.


Tree Surfers souvenirs and T shirts, plus local maps for walkers/cyclists and books on the area.


We have toilet facilities including disabled toilet.


We are happy to warm milk for parents.
