    Climbing Frame 10 Year Timber Guarantee
    Climbing Frame 10 Year Timber Guarantee II
    10 year timber guarantee
    All of the timber in this Climbing Frame or Play House has been pressure treated to ensure it lasts. Unlike some competition, we can offer a genuine 10 year guarantee against wood-eating fungal and insect infestation in pressure treated timber. We’ve also tested our treated timber to the European safety standard EN71-3 to ensure that the chemicals are safe to use on children’s products.
    Climbing Frame Metal Ground Anchors
    Climbing Frame Metal Ground Peg
    Metal Ground Anchors
    Unlike the pegs that some other companies use to secure their play systems, we sell galvanised metal ground anchors with large diameter metal discs. These ground anchors either come included with the product or can be bought separately. They will be buried in the ground and should provide a solid foundation for your play system. If you find that your compacted soil is not stable enough then the ground anchors can be concreted in with no damage to the material.
    Climbing Frame 10mm Rope On Swings
    Climbing Frame 10mm Rope On Swings II
    10mm Rope on Swings
    We don't use metal chain links which can rust and risk trapping little fingers and hair. Our accessories use 10mm thick rope, pre-assembled with welded plastic joints and are height adjustable.

    Rounded Safety Caps
    Nuts and bolts are safely covered up with plastic caps for added protection against knocks, bumps and to prevent catching clothing.
    Climbing Frames Childrens Slide Set
    Climbing Frames Garden Slide Material
    Extra Thick Slides
    Our plastic slides are thicker and more durable than any other residential plastic slides on the market. You don't even need to build them! Ours are one single piece of plastic rather than a kit of separate parts.
    Climbing Frames Swing Set Clamp Hooks
    Climbing Frames Clamp Style Swing Hooks
    Clamp Style Swing Hooks
    Our hooks are specially designed to wrap around the timber to help reinforce it. The other type of swing hook that some competitors use is a simple bolt which is drilled through the middle of the timber and can weaken the timber over time as the swing moves back and forth. Our clamp style swing hooks add strength and safety.
    Climbing Frames Strong Braces
    Climbing Frames Strong Braces II
    Strong braces
    To ensure a really solid structure we use multiple braces for added strength. We also prefer to use bolts, rather than screws, at key stress points and even pre-drill these holes to help you get the positioning exactly right and save you time.
    Climbing Frames Fixing Pack
    Climbing Frames Fixings Included
    Free fixing pack
    We include all of the screws, nails and fixings needed to put your Climbing Frame together, not everyone is that thoughtful! So there's no need to worry about the type of screws, or length of nails etc you might need to get started, it's all there in the pack!

Excellent! My twin girls love it, shame its been raining since Christmas Day though, but it didn't stop them using the swings in the rain! A couple of minor problems putting it together, however on the whole the instructions were easy to follow. I would definately recommed this for kids who love climbing!
By - Adrian Blowe on Dec 27,17

My girls absolutely love this play frame. Two of us built it in a day. All seems excellent quality and will hopefully last until the kids have grown up. They love the monkey bars and trapeze and are constantly out playing in their 'park' rather than sitting watching tv. Well worth the money, would highly recommend.
By - Jac Cusworth on Jul 04,17

Climbing frame arrived promptly. Delivery was OK, it was a one man delivery but two turned up and despite the fact there were two only one helped unload! Very strange. Frame is fairly straightforward to assemble. Check all the parts are there and read through and understand the instructions before you start, it doesn't take long and will save potential issues later. A drill with a 3/3.2mm HSS is essential as is a separate drill/driver with a size 2PZ fitted. Nuts use 17mm socket/spanner. I substituted A2 stainless screws on the whole and used some felt as a cap for the roof, will add anti pigeon spikes to the monkey bar rails in due time. Worked by myself with minimal help to lift the roof up. Good luck.

Fantastic product, great service and swift delivery. PS.... My kids love it!
By - Neil Owens on Jun 06,17

I would not recommend using Dunster House to anyone. I purchased this climbing frame and received it quite quickly on a Tuesday. On the Sunday my 5 year old son accidentally fell badly down the slide and caused the bottom to crack. I contacted Dunster House straight away and had to send pictures which I did they refused to replace the slide as they said it was an impact crack. Well this is quite obvious as my son fell on the slide and the customer service is terrible I have asked for the managing directors email address and have been completely ignored. To have the slide for less then a week and it breaks is unacceptable and I would never use this company again.

We are all so delighted with what is known at our house as the fort. The kids want to be on there all the time and now that the weather is better they are playing on it after school. Hoping for picnics and all sorts up in the tower. Exceptional quality, delivery and sales process all as slick as can be. 100% recommend.

Great product and excellent service. Very helpful staff.
By - Julie Godfrey on May 09,17

Love this! We had the idea last minute to buy our little boy a climbing frame for his 4th Birthday. Dunster House were able to deliver within 5 days and when we went to the show room in Huyton we were able to see lots of their products on show. Staff were helpful and professional. We received regular updates about where our purchase was up to and delivery was timely and efficient. My husband took several hours to assemble the frame but all parts were there and the instructions were clear and helpful. We all love the climbing frame and are really pleased we chose Dunster House!!

We are thrilled with the Fort Plus Escape, it arrived quickly and the delivery drivers were very helpful. It took two people a half a day to assemble but it was worth the effort. It looks amazing,the quality is fantastic and more importantly my three year old loves it. It was a big hit at his party and it was never empty all day. Would definitely recommend for hours of fun. Think he has the best view in the house.
By - Sarah Booth on May 09,17

We are really happy with the FortPlus. The kids love it and the quality of the wood and other materials is excellent. The construction does take some time. I did most of it myself only involving the missus when 2 people were essential. It took me about 13 hours over a couple of days. I also found myself making mistakes on a couple of areas where the instructions were not very clear so take care and consult the photos on the website if you're unsure as some of the 3D diagrams are a bit difficult to follow:-) The end result is very satisfying though. We also bought the baby swing, duoseat and the pirate kit. If you want to attach the pirate steering wheel in the top of the fort on the panels where the kids will probably enjoy it most you will need to find a thick piece of wood to take the bolt as the panels are too thin. Oh and make sure you have a spare batter for your drill screwdriver / electric screwdriver. If you're thinking of doing it with a manual screwdriver you need your bumps feeling :-) Good luck!

we recently purchased a climbing frame from you to say we are happy with it is a understatement our little boy loved it. The quality of the wood is amazing and was easy to build. We would recommend this to any one it saves us a trip to the park and it's all in our back garden it's all worth it to see the smile on our boys face.
By - Georgia Bartlett on Mar 28,17

We bought the fort plus escape climbing frame for our 4yr old daughter ready for spring. She absolutely adores it and will rush home from nursery to play on the swings and slide before the sun goes down. Although it's a lot of money for a play thing it's helped us all spend more time in the garden, our daughter will happily play whilst we chill out with friends. The build is relatively easy - I managed to do it and up under now my DIY skills extended no further than the odd wonky shelf - but it does take at least a full day. We added a few of the extras - steering wheel and telescope - which went down well. The construction is really solid and ultimately we're very very happy with the result.

Excellent quality, brilliant customer service. Highly recommended. The children love it and will have hours fun.
By - Julie Skinner on Feb 14,17

With a little planning and time spent reading through the instructions ( which were a photocopy and unclear) it is fairly straightforward. I was able to assemble it on my own except for the roof which I needed help to lift up. Looks good and grandchildren love it.
By - Ron Hillcoat on Jan 31,17

I am not a builder and me and my son took 6 hours to put together, very easy to complete, easy instructions and pre drilled holes. The fort is sturdy and looks really good, the grandchildren will love it when they see it Christmas day Excellent customer service when ordering and put my mind at ease when deciding on the right fort.. for that a big thank You a point I must raise. 1. Dunster house please pre assemble the side panels (like the roof) make it so much quicker All in all, great choice, not dissapointed 1 Dunster house, think about pre- assembling the panels for the sides like the roof, this will save so much more time 2. The delivery driver although did not ask direct, insinuate a tip for helping take the panels 50 feet from the road to the garden, this I refused and carried it myself, less agile persons will struggle, please make this clear in your advert. Funny thing if the chap had said nothing and helped I would have dropped him a fiver All in all definitely go back and order from Dunster house

Tools required does not mention a socket wrench which is needed for frame bolts, Plans and diagrams could be improved, ladder did not fit into any of the openings onto the platform and needed planing to fit. 35mm screws came in 2 sizes but not clear where to use the different ones. When fitting last panel to the base of the fort, panel exceeded width of the frame and again needed planing. Final frame does not match the picture as monkey bars needed to fit into the opening of the fort, but instructions resulted in monkey bars ending on the closed panel so had to adjust.

Hi Josephine. Thank you for your review and your suggestions. We will take them into consideration and have a look into our instructions and diagrams for our climbing frames.

We purchased Fortplus Escape for our growing number of grandsons for their amusement when they visit. It is well made with sufficient different activities to keep them occupied. The instructions are very good, including the dimensions of each component to avoid making mistakes. You have to drill a large number of holes so a good drill with a range of drill sizes, plus a good electric screw driver are in my view essential. I also used a set square. Highly recommended.

We first came across dunster house play equipment at my mom's house. My 4 boys loved it so we decided to get the boys one too (hopefully wear them out!). It took my husband the best part of a day on his own to assemble. The boys love it! We purchased a baby swing for the little one so he too can join in the fun. Highly recommend the company and the equipment. It's strong and sturdy and I can see that it will last a very long time! We are putting artificial grass underneath so they can play out without getting muddy!
By - Natalie Derrick on Oct 07,16

Absolutely thrilled with the product. Outstanding quality, very well made. Frame is solid and robust once erected. Instructions were clear and precise. Took me 12 hours from start to finish. Relatively straightforward for anybody familiar with DIY. Customer service were great, slight delay with delivery, but only due to it being out of stock from being so popular. It's a huge hit with family and friends, needless to say we host all BBQ's now!
