BeWILDerwood is a huge woodland full of family fun, imagination, and outdoor adventure!
Based on the magical and enchanting books by author and creator Tom Blofeld, a day at BeWILDerwood means endless hours spent together, exploring our wonky world of treehouses, whizzing down super slides, swinging together on giant swings and zipping along extra-long zip wires, as well as joining in with our storytelling and creative crafts amongst other things!
Create memories, get outdoors, and PLAY together! We rarely see grown-ups sitting on the side-lines here at BeWILDerwood as adults play too! So get ready to run WILD. And don’t forget to look out for Boggles and Twiggles too!
A person over the age of 18 who is providing help and support to an individual visiting the park who is in receipt of DLA (Disability Living Allowance), PIP (Personal Independence Payment) or is a current holder of an Access Card or a Blue Badge. The term carer should not be confused with a foster carer or care assistant. We just ask to see the Access Card, Blue Badge or proof of DLA/PIP receipt at the gate on the day you visit.
Yes, everything at BeWILDerwood is little person and big person friendly and we encourage everyone to clamber and climb and join in the fun. So yes, everyone who comes to play, pays an admission. Our prices are based on height, as there are a few things that require longer arms and legs!
Sorry, no dogs (except assistance dogs) – Twiggles are scared of them! BeWILDerwood allows assistance dogs of all kinds into the park and follows the Equality and Human Rights commission’s definition of an assistance dog. We do not allow dogs to stay in cars or on leads outside the park.
The ideal age range for children is 2 – 12 years old, however BeWILDerwood is a family adventure park, which means parents, grandparents, teachers and group leaders can all enjoy the play equipment just as much as the children. We like to see everyone get stuck in and run, jump, swing and laugh your day away all together!
For the teeny ones we have Toddlewood on the Hill and Tiptoe Valley. These are enclosed areas for the little ones who may not be adventurous enough to go on the bigger play equipment, with all the magic and variety of BeWILDerwood, just in miniature! We even have basket zip wires suitable for littlies right next to the Wobbly Wires, called the Twiggle Whizzers. If you have a teenager who enjoys the outdoors, has a sense of adventure and imagination then then they should still enjoy BeWILDerwood, especially if they’re with their younger siblings!
Tickets are non-refundable. However, we are happy to swap your paid tickets to another date (if availability allows) if you are unable to come and play. Please let us know if you need to change your tickets as sooon as possible! We’re unable to swap tickets after 12 months from the date of purchase, sorry!
We are happy to offer a complimentary return visit in special circumstances, such as: extreme weather that affects the operation of the park; illness/injury within 1 hour of park entry; unexpected closure of the park due to matters outside of BeWILDerwood’s control within 3 hours of park entry. Any request for a special consideration must be done in writing to the office including proof of purchase (receipt).
Ideally, we want you to stay all day! We advise that you allow a minimum of 3.5 hours to enjoy your time at BeWILDerwood, but most people enjoy a full day with us and never want to leave!
Yes of course (great for when little legs get tired). We are accessible for pushchairs, however, we are in a natural woodland environment where the ground can be bumpy and hilly in places. Our treetop walkways and play structures are not suitable for buggies, but you can park them nearby!
Congratulations on your little bundle of joy! There's a good number of activities you can do without having to clamber up to the treetops like storytelling, crafts, boat rides (Norfolk only) and den building. We understand certain structures in the park may not be suitable for heavily pregnant ladies, so those who are over 20 weeks along can book a free ticket. We just ask that you bring your MATB1 letter or any dated maternity notes that include your due date along with you when you visit to show the Twiggle Team at the gate.
Those who use a wheelchair are able to come in for free.
Every effort has been made to allow reasonable access to the park. Given the natural woodland setting (and the typical British weather!) in some areas the pathways can become a little muddy, which may be a little tricky but not totally inaccessible. Take a look at our Accessibility Page for more info.
You need to be at least 92cm to go down any of our big slides (e.g. Slippery Slopes).
To use the Wobbly Wires, you need to be at least 105cm.
Don’t worry if you are a teeny Twiggle… Plenty of miniature adventure can be found at Tiptoe Valley, Toddlewood on the Hill and the Twiggle Whizzers!
We have a weight restriction of 16st on our Zip Wires, and that's all.
We are in the woods so there are plenty of trees that give extra shelter during light rain or intermittent showers. Some of our structures have sails covering them so you can continue playing, however you’re better off coming prepared in case there’s any heavy rain. When it does rain heavily you may get a very wet bottom on some structures, so bring dry clothes. If it’s particularly splishy sploshy weather then we have to close the slides for your safety (booo!) however we will aim to get them open again as soon as possible (wooo!)
We shouldn’t need to close during thunderstorms, but if there is an electrical storm, we will close the boats (Norfolk only), zip wires and slides while the storm is overhead. These will be reopened as soon as the storm has passed. Phew!
We monitor the winds and will close the park if it gets too blustery, however, this is very rare and we usually make a decision before the park opens for the day. All those who are prebooked will be contacted and we will post updates on our social media profiles.
If the weather is miserable and you've got tickets booked, we're more than happy to move your booking to another day (up to 12 months after the original booking date). Just pop us over an email or call the Twiggle Team!
There isn't an indoor play area at BeWILDerwood: we are all about being out in the great outdoors! However, as we are a natural woodland site, shelter from the sun and rain is everywhere. Our canvas sail covers offer further cover from the sun and rain. The Big Hat tent is also a lovely little undercover area to enjoy a quiet spot of crafting, however, this is not an indoor area.
Nope, sorry! All children under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by an adult.
Twiggles don’t like smoking (because it stains your teeth, makes your breath smell and can even harm the WILD creatures that live in the woods) so you are only permitted to smoke in the car park. The discreet use of e-cigarettes is permitted, so long as it is not affecting others’ enjoyment of the park.
Booo! It’s rubbish feeling under the weather. If you’ve booked Day Tickets and now can’t come to play due to a poorly person, we’re happy to switch the date of your visit for a different day when everyone’s feeling as right as rain again. This excludes tickets for special events.
We promise to change your tickets if availability allows, so please do let us know as soon as you can. Please note, tickets are non-refundable and we are unable to swap tickets after 12 months from the date of purchase, sorry!
If you think you have lost something in BeWILDerwood you can either give us a call or email us about it. Postage and packing is charged for the return of lost items. We will keep lost property for at least 2 weeks before handing items over to a local charity. If we find anything of value we will keep it safe until it is claimed or hand it in at the local police station.
We don’t offer emergency services/blue light/NHS/Student discount, but you won’t be faced with any pesky hidden costs when you come to play.
We don't have Changing Places toilet facilities, sorry. We do have adult changing mats available, just ask a member of the Twiggle Team for more info.
Nooo, sorry! However, many visitors leave their picnics, change of clothes, etc in their cars and pop back to the carpark for them!
Yes! We do recommend bringing insect repellent to the woods with you. We have lots of curious creatures who live in the woods... and some of them bite, ouch!
We are not licensed to allow alcohol in the park so please wait until you get home to enjoy your favourite tipple!
We don’t host birthday parties in the woods. However, if you would like the Birthday Twiggle’s name to be on our Birthday Board, let the Twiggle Team know before you come to play!
