  • Safety as standard
    Our entire range is independently tested to comply with European Safety Standard EN71 and are CE rated. It really is better to be safe than sorry!
    10 year timber guarantee
    With the exception of some accessories (eg. Ring Trapeze), ALL of the timber in your Climbing Frame has been pressure treated to ensure it lasts. Please be aware most of our competitors dip treat or do not specify the type of treatment they use. If the product is dip treated and not pressure treated they will require you to dismantle the climbing frame and treat all of the parts each and every year which cause you the customer, a lot of hassle and unnecessary time wasted taking it apart and putting it back together again. We offer a genuine 10 year guarantee against rot and insect infestation with no need for you to re-treat the climbing frame, at any point during that 10 years. We’ve also tested our treated timber to EN71-3 to ensure that the chemicals are safe to use on children’s products – which seems obvious but other companies use solvents to treat similar products.
    Metal Ground Anchors
    Unlike the pegs that some other companies use to secure their play systems, we believe in burying large diameter galvanised metal discs into the ground to provide a solid stable structure. This way, unless your ground is particularly soft, there's no need to concrete the posts into the ground.
  • 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.
    Comfortable Swings
    Our seats are made from moulded thick plastic that doesn't sacrifice comfort or durability.
    High Quality Accessories - Optional
    We don't offer cheap flimsy accessories, unlike some competitors. Our climbing frame accessories are all designed for strength and manufactured to a high quality standard.
    Professional Quality Climbing Stones
    Moulded plastic climbing stones can crack - that's why we don't use them! We only use professional grade materials, as seen on proper climbing walls!
  • Rounded Safety Caps
    Nuts and bolts are safely covered up with plastic caps for added protection against knocks, bumps and to prevent catching clothing.
    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.
    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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

Kids really enjoy this, Like the one in the pub garden but it is all your's! The only down side was installation the cheapest price to put it up was £200.00 and this was from every handy man in Bedfordshire.

Hi Margaret. Thank you for your review. We're sorry but we don't have an installation service for our climbing frames. All of our climbing frames are DIY only.

Overall we are really pleased with this, it's solid, looks good and my 6yr old loves it. The sales and delivery was excellent. It took quite a while to put together and this could be greatly improved if a) holes were predrilled - one of the few holes that was predrilled on the swing beam was in the wrong place b) pieces were marked so you don't have to measure each time to check you've got the right bit c) the writing in bags of screws was smudged and difficult to read and the bolts were not bagged so again having to measure each time to check you're using the right ones in the right place d) instructions could be a lot clearer. One annoying thing was having to make several trips to hardware store because the list of things you need is not clear e.g says you need a socket spanner but doesn't tell you what size so I bought a set and none of them fit! Had to go out again and ended up with a box spanner that did the job, also it includes an 8mm drill bit but not the 3 mm drill bit which would have been very handy. At the end you need to dig holes for anchors and by the time the thing is in situ the places where you have to dig holes are hard to reach, like under the tower. We used a hole borer for this which we ordered online and arrived several days later. It would have been useful if it was available to purchase with the unit, or at least on the list of things you will need.

Great quality easy to assemble a dream. Grand daughter loves it
By - Trevor Adams on Jul 19,16

I bought this for my son's 4th birthday and we both love it. It looks fantastic in the garden and was surprisingly easy to put up if you followed the instructions step by step. Delivery was prompt and the guys were very helpful. A great addition to his outside playthings.
By - Ellie Hopwood on Jul 10,16

Excellent instructions although it does take a while to put together, probably because it is well made and safety has been a big consideration. We were 3 bolts missing and these arrived first post the following day. By the way the kids-and the dog-love it.

The grandchildren are loving their new playground! It's well made and easy to construct.
By - Linda Scott on May 03,16

Sturdy and looks great. My 4 year old son loves it and will do for years to come. Took 1 person a day to put together.
By - Leah Shaw on Jan 24,16

Delighted with our buy. It was a present for my daughter's 8th birthday and both her sister (14) and her (and the neighbours) have already had hours of fun on it. It took us 2 days to build, taking our time. It is fantastic, my daughter is constantly on it, before and after school. No more TV!
By - Elodie C on Oct 15,15

Our grandson was absolutely thrilled to see his birthday present. He came through the garden gate with his eyes closed, opened them when told and his mouth dropped open in disbelief. He has had many days of climbing, swinging and steering his ship across the seas! Erected in 2 half days with ease, although in extreme sun!

Brilliant Company, Brilliant Products - Very solid and look nice.. A little tricky to put together.. The delivery boys were great too.. Very friendly and helpful... The whole company appear to be very professional, organised and offer a high standard of quality products. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

I found the hole dunster house experience excellent. From ordering online, making payments, tracking the delivery through to building it I never had any issues what so ever and we are really pleased with the result. Overall it probably took about 6 hours to build with a lot of it being able to be done by one person. Its well made and straight forward if following the instructions properly. I had missed out the additional accessory pack that was available free as a promotion but one email to customer services and a lovely good will gesture was sent. Overall really cant fault anything.
By - Keith Harrison on Aug 24,15 Dunster House reply:
Dear Keith. Thank you so much for your review and for your lovely photo.

Great service and very helpful when I had a problem. The fort is fantastic and was not that difficult to assemble. Managed to put it together on my own but an extra pair of hands would have helped a lot. Kids absolutely love it. Purchased this because of size restrictions and found that Dunster house had the best selection of different product footprints.
By - Stephen Hyman on Aug 19,15

Great climbing frame and my two boys love it. Only gave four stars simply as it took so long to put together. My husband spent 8 hours and he's still not managed to put the extras on eg flag/steering wheel! It really is a two person job over a good five hours to do it properly. Customer service was AMAZING though and they went out of their way to deliver in time for my son's birthday. Very grateful indeed!! Thank you.
By - Sophie Parker on Aug 05,15

Nothing can prepare you for the fact that this is a two day assembly project for two people. Lots of drilling and bolt heads that are recessed in plastic cups calls for a specific box spanner. Very little prepared screw holes presents quite a challenge yet there is no warning of what's involved on the website. Never again unless I have nothing else going on in my life.
By - Malcolm Diamond on Aug 04,15 Dunster House reply:
Dear Malcolm. Thank you for your review. As stated on our website on the product’s page assembly approximate time is 1 day based on 2 people. This is only an estimate as assembly time may vary depending on weather conditions, terrain type and the ability and DIY skills of those constructing.

We are really pleased with our new climbing frame. Ordering and delivery was very easy; the monkey fort was really competitively priced and we were contacted promptly to arrange delivery and it was possible for us to specify when we wanted to receive delivery. In the day of delivery the ability to track the driver was excellent and meant we knew a rough time to expect arrival. Construction took two adults an entire day and we had to return to the hole digging to anchor the climbing frame on a second day. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. A cordless drill and electric screwdriver are essential though , otherwise construction would take a lot longer. The climbing frame looks really good in the garden and blends in well. It's a huge hit with our children who are aged 5 and 4 years. Thanks dunster house.

I bought this for my 7 year old sons birthday and it was the best thing I have ever bought him he has had loads of fun and has only had it 3 weeks. It took a day to put up with 2 people but was worth the hard work.
By - Jacqueline Westgarth on Jul 21,15

Put it up this weekend. Easy enough to do. However we ordered an extra swing. The circular seat and rope arrived but there's nowhere to attach it, no brackets or space for an extra swing. Should we have had a longer swing arm and second set of brackets?
By - Nichola Barber on Jul 21,15 Dunster House reply:
Hi Nichola. Thank you for your review. The extra swings that we sell for our Climbing Frames allow you to interchange with the swing seats that come as standard. You can then use the existing metal swing hooks. The number of swing points is set after the independent testing so you cannot add more.

Great climbing frame, and my children love it. Excellent quality materials.
By - Danielle Page on Jul 08,15

1 star purely due to customer service. I was so excited to receive this for my son, however was very disappointed that the extras I ordered didn't arrive. I thought an email to customer services would quickly resolve the matter but shocked by the response, was told I had signed for it therefore I must have received it. Unfortunately I will never order from this company again, and wish I had never done so in the first place!
By - Kelly Bennett on Jul 06,15 Dunster House reply:
Dear Kelly, thank you very much for your review. We are sorry you are disappointed that we were not able to provide additional optional extras. Our delivery notes show each product separately with a separate tick box to give our customers the chance to check that every item is received. We try to give the benefit of the doubt whenever we can, especially with large deliveries, but as your delivery note only had 8 separate items, 4 packs for the main climbing frame, the slide and additional extras that have all been ticked and signed for, then it is reasonable for us to assume all items have been received. Unfortunately some unscrupulous people have in the past attempted to get additional items for free to either enhance their purchase or to sell online. It is for this reason we have developed our delivery system. We hope your children enjoy the climbing frame for many years to come.

10/10 daughter who is 8 is so happy with it
