Tree Surfers is about adventure for the whole family, don't just get close...

Tree Surfers is about adventure for the whole family, don't just get close to nature, be a part of it.Test yourself on our tree top high ropes course that takes you 70 foot high into the canopy. Be blown away by zip wires, tarzan swings and our leap of faith, all interwoven to the canopy trail. Afterwards, if you are brave enough have a go at the Zip line.At Tree Surfers you can hire hire mountain bikes to explore 30kms of woodland trails ideal for adventurous families. Or try archery with one of our instructors in the woodland range.Tree Surfers is at The Tamar Trails Centre which is the gateway to the Tamar Trails. Pop into the Centre for maps, advice, information and best of all relax in the wonderful Beech cafe. The all year round cafe has a great menu of hot food and cream teas made with local produce and lots of love!

Two boys aged 10 and 6, and their dad aged 40 had a fantastic hour or so going round multiple times. Safe but challenging. What impressed me was seeing other young children overcoming their natural fear of heights and developing great confidence. Upper weight limit for the junior course is 18 stones which might exclude a few heavier dads. There... More

Took my grandchildren aged 11 and 14 for the tree surfing and they really enjoyed it. They want to go again and do Segway rides. Great little cafe for food and drinks.

Very well run, very safe and managed both my daughter's and my own fear of heights with calm assurance. We both got round multiple times, becoming very fast and confident by the end. My son and wife, both pretty fearless, also had great fun.

We booked a half day of activity for 30 young people and would like to compliment Tree Surfers for their brilliant, professional and fun staff who made sure that every member of the group, including the adults had a great time! Obviously very well trained. The equipment and activities are of a very high standard and much better than any... More

Called in on the off chance and spent a great few hours of fun. Kids did the zip wire and the junior tree surfer. Great staff, very friendly. Cafe was lovely - nice homemade cakes. Well worth a visit and we will definitely return.

Went with two girls (12 and 14). Third time now and still good fun. The third course is now easier but still good. Nice cafe at the end after a couple of hours of hard work 😓

Brilliant place with friendly helpful staff. Be warned however that the carpark adjacent is not owned by them. It is separate and chargeable something I did not notice in my rush to get the children kitted up before their session started. I only became aware when a warden was gleefully explaining he had already printed a ticket for my car.... More

On a very wet day, we beat the English weather blues at Tree Surfers. Despite the downpour, two families found something to smile about with archery, a treasure hunt and stunning views. The staff were really helpful and, despite being soggy, somehow managed to retain their enthusiasm. The best was kept to last - great coffee and hearty soup to... More

My children have now been to tree surfers three times and absolutely love it. My fear of heights keeps me firmly on the ground but I love the atmosphere, great staff and really fun day out with friends.

Initially excited to have my son's 9th birthday here. This soon turned into a nightmare. The children were wrongly accused of wetting themselves. Handled badly by the owner who wanted to check their groin area while changing their harnesses which horrified the parents. We conveyed our disapproval which was met with passive aggressive behaviour. We would have left then but... More
