A Treetop Walkway gives you a whole new perspective
and a wonderful sense of freedom
Our normal, everyday view of trees is always from the ground looking up. Taking you right up into the tree canopy itself
and allowing you to rekindle and reconnect with those favourite childhood memories of climbing trees.

Woodland Treetop Walkways
We design and build Treetop Walkways in unique and spectacular woodland settings, high up within the treetop canopies where the leaves and your fingers can reach out and touch the sky. They offer a chance to stretch your legs high up above the ground and see the world from a different viewpoint.
Treetop Walkways aren’t just for walking. They’re also for exploring, dreaming, relaxing, sitting and even laying down and looking up – all the while safely encased within a huge ‘hammock‘ style, passive walkway tree-to-tree Tree-canopy Walkway, Tree Hammock, Hammock Bridge and Treetop Trail experience.
“A magical illusion from start to finish, and one that creates the ultimate ‘no noise’ experience that lends itself to the surroundings – soft, silent, safe and slow.”
With years of experience delivering projects packed with a passion for make-believe, fantasy, adventure and fun – not to mention plenty of ‘wow-factor‘, our Treetop Walkways are certainly designed to capture the imagination and appeal to every ‘inner’ child.
Treetop Walkways are a peaceful, fully immersive leisure activity designed in and around a woodland setting. They promise fresh air, exercise and imaginative outdoor adventures for explorers of all ages, to be enjoyed throughout the changing colours of every season. A Treetop Walkway offers a wonderful opportunity to set off on a walking journey that takes you high up off the ground and into a secret world hidden within the tree canopies. It’s a chance to observe and interact with the birds and woodland fauna.
It enables you to walk, feel, sit and take it all in, or simply lie back, look up and dream. What better way could there be to gain a greater appreciation of nature than from such an amazing and unique viewpoint amongst the leaves?
With no big structure or ‘stilts‘ required, and a black or hemp coloured safety (plus fall-arrest certificated) netting that gets ‘lost‘ against the woodland background – and so becomes seemingly ‘invisible‘ – the whole walkway experience appears ‘see-through‘. It’s as if people are walking ‘on-air‘ and free-floating between the trees.
Made using the highest quality materials and built by inspired craftsmanship, a Treetop Walkway creation is always sensitive to its location, creating zero impact and blending in seamlessly with the surrounding environment.
Treetop Walkways are certainly NOT an active, high adrenaline system such as ‘Go Ape‘ or a high ropes course. They are designed and intended as an educational and leisure experience to be used by adults and supervised children within the tree canopy habitat, as well as educational groups under supervision. That being said, a Treetop Walkway does not require any specific instruction other than safety guidance and the requirement of supervision of children at all times.
You can get a squirrel’s eye view of south-east England as you clamber along the UK’s longest and highest treetop walkway.

Treetop Walkway Design & Build
Additional options available
Big Chunky 4-sided Rope Ladder
The essential add-on
A Big Chunky 4-sided Rope Ladder provides an entrance and exit from the ground and up into the suspended Treetop Walkway. With a suspended Rope Ladder on four-sides, you step inside at ground level and climb on all four-sides, spiralling upwards with your hands gripping the ‘soft-to-the-touch‘ chunky hand-ropes.
We also set little suspended platforms into the Rope Ladder to stand or sit, particularly if there is a group of kids playing together. Also, as a safety feature and to help all ages of children feel super-safe.
The whole Big Chunky 4-sided Rope Ladder has plenty of room for grown-ups too, with an access point at ground level and plenty of climbing space.
“We are absolutely delighted with it and the children are playing on it for hours every day “
Graham Cambell, Buckinghamshire, UK
Treetop Adventure Trails
Adventure trails are suspended high up in the trees to create a free-flowing experience through several trees and a woodland experience. Perfect for woodland settings, family resorts, adventure parks and commercial experiences.
“The team on site were excellent and their attention to detail and skills has helped to design and build a truly unique and magical facility “
Andrew Laidler, Hayden Bridge, Northumberland, UK
Tree Canopy Hammocks
Suspended relaxation and fun
A ‘V’shaped Treetop Walkway or ‘hammock bridge’ is suspended tree-to-tree, floating seamlessly on structural steel cables within the garden woodland and reaching high into the tree canopy.
We call it a ‘hammock bridge’ because it’s rather like a huge hammock – you can sit, lay back and relax high in the tree canopy!
“We are thrilled with the result. Totally engaging for both children and adults alike “
Briony Markham, Buckinghamshire, UK
Suspended Deck Platforms
Linking walkways mid-air
Floating Tree Deck – The Treetop Walkway ‘journey’ brings you to a suspended ‘free-floating’ tree deck, complete with safety balustrade, wrapping around two trees.
Our ‘signature’ approach is to not screw, bolt or nail directly into the tree itself – so it is suspended from high above by structural steel cables and anchored to the tree by squeezing two large beams around both trees.
“We are 100% happy with our Tree Top Walkway and Zip Wire and would definitely recommend Treehouse Life “
Springwell Infant School, Hounslow, UK
Safety is at the heart of everything we do…
The Treetop Walkway has been designed with consideration for the size and the body weight of all family participants, and from initial entry at ground level to high up in the trees, users are surrounded within safety netting at all times.
“Safe area for our grandchildren to play in and explore“
Alison Greenaway, West Sussex, UK
Any moving parts have been designed to limit or eliminate the risk of any injury and there are no sharp edges to hurt fingers or toes.
It is certainly not possible to undo any critical components without the aid of a tool.
The free space does not contain any unprotected obstacles that a person manoeuvring or falling might crash into, other than the constituent parts of the Treetop Walkway or the natural state of the surrounding woodland.
The Treehouse Life team will meet all of your needs in a professional and responsive manner throughout the design and build stage.
We will help bring your Treetop Walkway dream to life and ensure that the very highest safety standards are adhered to and met every step of the way.
We will also calculate all the materials procurement so that we have accurate and sensible budgets to work from, eliminating the need for any expensive ‘scratching-of-heads‘ problem-solving by the time we begin construction on-site.
Materials & Techniques…
The Treetop Walkway is almost ‘invisible’ in the woodland environment, designed to be nonevasive and work with and through the trees. A safe netted walkway is supported at all times by a certificated steel cable system [EN 15567-1-2015], with soft ropes weaved into the netting for walking along.
We first install a single working cable through the Tree Top Trail route so the qualified and certified Tree Climber team can move seamlessly around the tree canopy on a Zip Wire trolley.
“It’s the 9-5 in the woods, a day on the Zip Trolley hanging between two trees and creating a Treetop Walkway!”
This way, we can move our team, the materials and an installation system into place with minimal impact on the woodland below. Our system doesn’t clear everything below the walkway in order to install, so we can work tree-to-tree above the woodland environment with zero or minimal environmental impact.
Once we have achieved the structural integrity of the Treetop Trail with a pair of equally spaced steel cables in the air between two trees, we can then set a Zip Wire trolley onto each cable so that a pair of Tree Climbers can work together installing the safety netting suspended in a carrier between them.

They also added some of their own design touches which work really well."

We would highly recommend working with Paul."

"We are thrilled with our Treehouse and Nest Swing and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Treehouse Life."

"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."
"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 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."
"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."
"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!"
“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."
“I would highly recommend Treehouse Life. Their design for 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.”
"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."
"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."
"Paul and his team at Treehouse Life have been very professional at all times, right from showcasing their products to rate negotiations to helping out in the shipping and delivery. Bearing in mind that our project (a large residential complex with a sizeable landscaped segment) was half the globe away, this was no small achievement. The installation and fixing proceeded like clockwork even through these Covid times and we and our customers couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome!"
"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."
"Paul and his crew were 100% brilliant from the start to finish. Throughout the project Paul has demonstrated exceptional problem solving skills and patience. He was particularly helpful in the initial design stage and the finish is like something straight out of fairytale. 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."
“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."
