More about Suspended Rope Bridges…
Suspended Rope Bridges can offer a perfect solution when looking to cross over large areas, such as rivers, lakes, ponds and even canyons. They also provide an exciting and flexible design option in Adventure Parks.
We work from anchor points established at each end, using either a zero-impact certified and proprietary ground buried anchor system or suitable ground buried concrete ‘pads’ with integrated structural anchor plates, that are designed and fabricated at our workshop. Typically, if suitable trees are available, we can ‘anchor’ to trees at each end of the Rope Bridge using tree-friendly webbing slings or rope soft-shackles.
“Suspended Rope Bridges are perfect across rivers, lakes and canyons”
In every project, the anchor points can always run longer than the actual Rope Bridge span, allowing us to also integrate ground-based deck platforms (with balustrades if necessary) at each end. This not only creates a truly impressive looking ‘start’ and ‘finish’ to the Rope Bridge, it also helps us to negotiate the height of the Rope Bridge above water, should there be any relevant issues with flood forecasts.
The most common lengths of Rope Bridges we have installed has been anywhere from 5m up to 45m. But if you’re thinking of something on a grander scale, that’s not a problem at all.
We have designed and installed 45m long Rope Bridges that span across rivers and canyons, and on one project, even installed a Rope Bridge directly into granite boulders when the availability of ground anchors or nearby trees was not an option. Whatever your wish our teams at Treehouse Life will always look for a way to make it work.
As ever, with Rope Bridge design and build, the key to structural integrity and design success is very much down to the lay of the land at the proposed location. While we can initially work from location photos to advise and consult regarding your Rope Bridge options, we do offer an on-site visit consultancy so that we can to discuss all opportunities.
Structurally, suspended Rope Bridges work from anchor-to-anchor using structural steel cables or ropes with all elements suspended inbound on the structural lines, including the round timber uprights at each end that are required for the rope-work balustrades.
This is what we call a ‘floating Rope Bridge’ solution, which allows us to work with our own Rope Bridge system in many unique and incredible locations both throughout the UK and around the world.
That looks absolutely fantastic. Well done to you and the team! Amazing work.

More about Fixed Beam Rope Bridges…
Our fixed-beam Rope Bridges are a perfect design solution to reach a treehouse or link up multiple platforms or decks. The purpose of the integrated fixed-beam is simply to hold the two ends apart; it typically sits at half-height within the rope balustrades, but can also sit lower or even closer to the upper ‘hand-rail‘.
On this particular Rope Bridge design and installation solution, because the ‘stress-and-strain‘ between the two fixed points is taken up by the fixed-beam, we support the timber walkway treads underneath with ropes that are fixed at each end to a round timber beam.
“Fixed-beam Rope Bridges have an end-to-end beam through the rope balustrades ”
Structurally perfect and beautiful in design, Fixed-Beam Rope Bridges for treehouses, platforms and decks can add a whole other dimension of fantasy and imaginative play.
With the bridge always sitting level end-to-end, it is possible for us to increase (or decrease) the overall height by installing an additional step up and/or down at either end (usually 300mm).
Although this is a fully integrated Rope Bridge design and installation, there is however a limit to the distance the bridge can actually cover. This is determined by the length of the actual fixed- beams we use; a 3m span or less works perfectly, although there are some other excellent options if a span of up to 6m long is required.
Overall, the structural integrity is always going to be heavily dependent upon what is available at each end of the bridge – so our advice (based on years of experience) would always be for a Rope Bridge to be integral to an overall design rather than being an add-on after everything else has been built.
Include some Climbing Walls, Zip Wires and Fireman’s Poles as part of your child’s treehouse world and you will create the ultimate adventure and fantasy land and a playful connection to a whole world of possibilities – the perfect setup for every family back garden or school playground.
More about Log Rope Bridges…
Our Log Rope Bridges are a perfect solution for every magical journey, starting each new treehouse adventure right from the middle of the lawn or woodland floor, and leading it all the way upwards to a treehouse or platform.
“Log Rope Bridges are the perfect solution whenever or wherever you need a change of height”
What better entrance could there be, than feeling those butterflies of excitement and the rush of make-believe from the moment you place your foot on that very first log and then cross the Rope Bridge into a faraway kingdom or land.
When incorporating a change in height into our designs, using flat Rope Bridge ‘slats’ simply wouldn’t do the job; too much of a gradient and the bridge would literally turn into a slide! The answer is in the use of round timber logs set inbound on ropes or steel cables, providing the intrepid climber with suitable ‘steps’ whilst they hold onto the rope balustrades.
Typically, with Rope Bridges up to approximately 4.8m in length (which is ideal for a Rope Bridge entrance), we integrate a fixed-beam into the Rope Bridge to hold the two ends apart.
This is usually at half-height within the rope balustrades but can also sit lower or even closer to the upper ‘hand-rail’.
Although creating that initial ‘wow factor’ entrance is a ‘must do’ for any Landscape Designer, it is often overlooked.
The route up and into a treehouse needs to be exciting and imaginative and very much a part of the play journey itself and this is where the magic begins. Log Rope Bridges offer that perfect – not to mention most adventurous – entrance to any garden or backyard treehouse play-set or platform decks.
Sweeping up from the garden lawn, not only do they look stunning in design, they can be far more fun than conventional steps.

What our clients say...
"I can’t recommend Treehouse Life highly enough and look forward to working with Paul and his team on future projects."
"I would highly recommend Treehouse Life. Their design of a play area for my children was well thought out and fitted perfectly into the space we had. They were quick to install and the quality of the materials and the overall build is exceptional. My children love playing there, so in short it was well worth it."
"Paul, Charlie and the team did a fantastic job for our home treehouse installation. Super efficient, professional and a real pleasure to have around. Delighted with the finished product, my son loves it and anyone who visits thinks the work done is fantastic. It was also built in the most ridiculous wind and rain conditions, but still built ahead of schedule. Thank you Paul and team, we will be using you again!"
"Paul is a consummate professional who's enthusiasm and excitement for building treehouses is just infectious. The treehouses he has built are utterly amazing but always remain true to nature, the environment and of course the safety of the inhabitants."
"Paul and his team of sons and colleagues are a pleasure to have on site. Apart from being extremely professional and skilful, they are polite and clearly enjoy their work."
"I can’t praise everyone involved with Treehouse Life enough. We’ve enjoyed our fantastic treehouse over the summer holidays and it’s been a massive hit with all our visitors. The build itself was thoroughly professional with really lovely people that were a pleasure to have around. They worked alongside my bouncy Labrador, provided off cuts for my kids to transform into works of art and at the same time built an incredible treehouse on time and addressed any concerns and queries immediately."
"If you are thinking of having a treehouse then this is the company to use."
"Paul really took time to understand what I was looking for. I wanted something very special, magical and unique. I had a specific idea in mind with a treehouse that was all crooked and artistic. He got it straightaway and worked with me all the way through to ensure I was completely happy with it. His team of builders were professional and the job was completed on time. I couldn't recommend him more highly and I will certainly be using him again on other projects."
"Pleasure to have them around! Would highly recommend using Paul & team."
"A true creative, a true craftsman and absolutely a true professional. I will continue to use and recommend him wherever I can so we can all sample some of his truly imaginative tree escapes.”
"I purchased a Nest Swing from Treehouse Life. The swing is absolutely gorgeous, big enough for the whole family and we have spent the entire weekend in it following installation...I couldn't be happier."
"Paul and his team built a Tree House with Rope Bridge at a scheme where we designed and built the garden. The house was in keeping with the space, fitting perfectly into the landscape of the garden and adding to it. The Tree House is now a beautiful feature of the space as well as a magical place for our clients grandchildren to play, it makes us wish we were young again!"
"It was a delight and a breath of fresh air to work with Paul and his team. They are not the typical builders/contractors. They did what they said and stayed on schedule. The Rope Bridge is a work of art and everyone who sees it admires the structure. We are very pleased to have asked Treehouse Life Ltd to construct the bridge for us."
"They built the original treehouse 15 years ago and now it needed some repairs and an extension - both children AND grandchildren are now using it!"
"Thanks for a great job!"
"Paul Cameron's enthusiasm towards the challenge and the professional approach he adopted throughout the process made the complete design and build process transparent and easy for us."
"We cannot recommend them highly enough to anyone wishing to create a magical play area in their garden or a large adventure area for kids and adults alike. Many, many thanks to the whole team for creating such a fun, safe area for our grandchildren to play in and explore - it has truly brought another dimension to our lives. Who knew babysitting and child-minding could reach this level of fun?”
"Working with Paul and the team from Treehouse Life has been an amazing seamless experience from the start of the quote to the finish of the installation. Their attention to detail and sense of pride in their work shines through and is second to none. The new Rope Bridge looks wonderful, it is very well built, and has already been a fantastic hit with our visitors aged 2 to 96yrs!"
"The kids (plus the bigger kids) absolutely delighted with their new adventure treehouse that Paul and team at Treehouse Life have magically created for them. Years of fun to be had with this and haven’t seen the kids since we’ve had it installed. Seamless and very friendly/professional service, would highly recommend. Thank you!"
"Paul and the Treehouse Life team have been outstanding in they service and professionalism. I would recommend the company to anyone who wants top quality in outdoor equipment."
“Outstanding service from Paul and his team with an outcome of the most amazing adventure area for the kids. The initial meeting with Paul was us outlining what we wanted, then he came up with a plan that was spot on for our budget and requirements. The guys were on site within weeks and constructed within days."
"Could not be happier! Paul & team did an incredible job helping me bring my idea to life. It is safe to say the Treehouse is a hit. In the end we decided to go for a hybrid between a summer house and a Treehouse to keep the space versatile for adults and older children to use - The team were super creative and helpful in making sure I create something that’s both practical for my garden and exciting for the kids. They also added some of their own design touches which work really well."
“Paul Cameron and his company Treehouse Life are the providers of memories, fabulous family times spent playing together on a perfectly constructed and thoughout stage in the form of a Treehouse."
"We wanted to create a woodland play area for our children and their friends which would take them outside and away from the daily distractions of technology and TV! After searching online we came across Treehouse Life and started the process of dialogue with Paul Cameron. The team on site were excellent including Paul’s son and their attention to detail and skills has helped to design and build a truly unique and magical facility."
"Paul is delightful to deal with and his colleague did a fantastic job installing it, taking a lot of care to make sure it was safe and had plenty of room to swing. They also followed up after completion with suggestions of how to secure the swing and links to useful accessories."
"The children are so happy with the play area, when they can persuade the adults to leave it alone. Well done Paul and team, great job.”

The play area looks absolutely stunning yet blends in with the nature and provides fantastic and safe environment for children to play. The workmanship and materials are of the highest quality and the pricing has been very transparent throughout the entire project."
"We would not hesitate in working with Treehouse Life again and wholeheartedly recommending their services. Thank you!"
"Paul and his team were excellent and very professional from start to finish. The project was a Treehouse in Mumbai, India, which was customised for the site requirements. Despite the distance, everything was coordinated brilliantly and Paul and his team finished the job before time. The Treehouse itself was stunning, and the centrepiece for the larger development. We would highly recommend working with Paul."
"I can't thank you enough Paul, I will certainly be recommending Treehouse Life to all my friends!"
"Paul and his team did a fabulous job creating the most wonderful play area for our children. It was a very streamlined process with very little input required from us.

"Paul not only had fine knowledge in helping me decide what the best wood is for my decking and terrace fencing, he also has extremely good skills and an eye for detail. Nothing in my house is straight or aligned but he managed to make it look unbelievably fantastic! Everyone who has visited has commented on how lovely the terrace looks now."
"Paul and his team designed the perfect Treehouse for my daughter that fits seamlessly into the aesthetic of our garden. They were timely, collaborate, clean, and professional for the entire job. Some of the best builders I've ever worked with."
"Clear and speedy communication (nothing worse than having to wait forever for someone to reply to you), followed up by quick action, planning in of dates and completing the mission. Best toy ever. I have actually never left a review on a platform for anything before but Treehouse Life deserves it since they have consistently delivered quality in all aspects of their work."
"We have had many enquiries and admiring comments regarding the Treehouse and the project was a finalist at the Northern Design Awards in 2015. We would highly recommend Paul and his team to any client and hope very much to join forces in the near future.”
"Whilst the design was fantastic, the final result is absolutely everything we hoped for and yet in so many ways has exceeded our expectations."

Detailed analysis on the longer term commercial objectives and the need for safety and low maintenance was all accounted for, cleverly designed and built into the project."
