The curious treetop adventure park is worth the drive if you don’t live local to either location, in Cheshire and Norfolk, UK. We ventured out about an hour and half drive to visit BeWILDerwood in Cheshire with the kids. It was the first time we had planned a family day out since the first lockdown. We were so excited. Lucky for us, it definitely didn’t disappoint. So here is what we thought of the Cheshire BeWILDerwood Adventure Park.
Getting to the Adventure Park
Using SY13 4JF for the Sat Nav if arriving by car.
We didn’t know quite what to expect. Upon arrival, it was easy to find and lots of FREE parking. Also it provides designated disabled spaces, electric charging points and coach parking, as well as a bike shed, right by the entrance. If arriving by train, it’s five miles from Whitchurch train station.
We were met at the Grubbles Greeting Grates by the friendliest staff and smartly designed entrance with toilets. Whilst you are thinking why would toilets be at the entrance, it’s a brilliant idea. It pops into your head to go to the bathroom before entering the park and before you get back in your car for the journey home. They definitely had kids in mind for this!
Layout of the Adventure Park
It’s layout out through a beautiful Cheshire forest like a theme park. You are given a map and a challenge to find the secret message codes along the way. The kids were ecstatic. B, our eldest, is always our map guider.
There are toilets everywhere which is helpful for and the running, jumping, drinking, eating, ice cream licking the kids do all day.
Appropriate for All Ages
It really is suited for all ages. There is climbing frames, slides, and little toddler play areas to adult climbing frames, slides and play areas. I promise you, you will want to join the kids. There may even be a few slides I was too scared to go on so the teenagers will love it too.
It’s wood chip paths around the whole adventure park so it’s stroller friendly. There is even baby zip lining swings next to the adults. So plenty for the little babies to do as much as the big kids.

What we Thought Overall
We would definitely go back and bring the toddler next time too. It was a fun family day out for us all. There are not many theme parks or parks to visit where the parents can get involved in all the fun too. It makes it a great adventure for everyone.
We had coffee and ice cream from the Cozy Cabin and ate lunch at the Munch Bar both had lots of options to eat and drink. Got to recharge those batteries for all that climbing!
My recommendation wear leggings or pants. Shorts or skirts they tend to catch their bare legs on the slides and ropes. Tie hair up for safety. Wear good durable running shoes. The sun doesn’t really shine down with all the big trees so it’s cooler than you think. Kids get warm running around but while eating or if it rains,a light jacket would do.
Covid Safety Measures
It made us feel normal again being able to get out as a family and enjoy some new adventures outside our four walls. They had adhered to all covid guidelines and took all necessary precautions for our safety. Masks only need to be worn inside the gift shop, crafts in the big hat, storytelling stage and the toilets. So have a mask on hand but not for the outdoor adventures. There is hand sanitizer stations set up everywhere too.
BeWILDerwood Cheshire is a huge woodland full of family fun, imagination, and outdoor adventure for the whole family to experience.
