A 70-acre adventure park has opened in South Cheshire a year later than planned
Tickets are now on sale for a new family day out, which opened its doors for the first time on April 12 (2021).
BeWILDerwood Cheshire – the Curious Treehouse Adventure – was meant to open last May (2020) but this was delayed due to the Covid pandemic.
The park encourages children and their families to enjoy traditional, imaginative, and healthy outdoor play.
We’ve already been and our children loved it, read our full review, guide and top tips here.
The multimillon-pound woodland adventure park is based on the BeWILDerwood book series by Tom Blofeld and follows the success of a first site in Norfolk.
Tom said: “We can’t wait to finally open the gates to the people of Cheshire and beyond.
“When thinking about opening a second park and after looking at a few options, I just knew Cheshire was the right choice.
“The woodland is the perfect setting for the Boggles and Twiggles and all the other curious characters from the books.
“I hope our visitors love the wonky world of BeWILDerwood just as much as the Norfolk folk. The key is to use your imagination and simply have fun together as a family”.
The woodland adventure park is located next to Cholmondeley Castle, in South Cheshire.
It is in a forest setting where children can ‘run wild’ and promises ‘no noisy rides, no technology and no junk food’.
It includes big wonky wooden play structures and treehouses in the trees, a massive maze to get lost in, wobbly zip wires and giant slippery slides.
Park manager Hannah Monteverde said: “We’d originally planned on opening last year, but due to the pandemic, we’ve had to push it back.
“It’s given us even more time for our team to ensure everything is extra WILD before our visitors enter through our wonky gates.”
Face painting and activities like interactive storytelling shows and crafting sessions are included in the ticket price and parking is free.
It is aimed at children aged two to 12 but teenagers and adults can enjoy the equipment too as the focus is on family fun.
Toddlers and children who are too small to go on the bigger bits have their own areas, Toddlewood on the Hill and Tiptoe Valley.
Food can be bought at the Cosy Cabin and Munch Bar and picnics are welcome.
Tickets are based on height rather than ages and can be bought online.
Books from the BeWILDerwood series including A Boggle at BeWILDerwood, The BeWILDerbats and A BeWILDermuddle are also available to buy online.
