*Please note, this Climbing Frame is now sold out

The Burghley climbing frame is action packed with features whilst maintaining the appearance of a more traditional looking climbing frame. Consisting of a main fort and swing beam, which doubles up as a monkey bar ladder swing, this climbing frame layout is truly unique. Designed ideally for medium sized gardens the set is bursting with fun play features including 2 belt swings, a trapeze bar, a rockwall ladder, a chalkwall, a straight slide and the option of having a sandpit feature.

Fort Features

The fort structure is supported by our upgraded, supersized, engineered uprights (legs) which helps to provide the frame with even greater strength and stability. Attaching to these uprights is a number of strong cedar panels that help to create a solid and secure structure for your children to play in. The upper level of the fort is securely enclosed with just two gaps located at the front and back allowing the rockwall ladder and slide to be fitted. The upper level of the fort is located 1.2 metres (4ft) from the ground and is enclosed by a yellow and green vinyl roof lining. On the lower level there is a space available for a sandpit feature. If you did decide to do this we recommend using a weed suppressant membrane and a couple of bags of play sand.

Swing Features

The Burghley climbing frame features an innovative swing beam which also doubles up as a monkey bar ladder swing providing the playset with a varied and exciting range of swinging activities. The three position wide monkey bar ladder swing will provide your children with the fun and lengthy monkey bar swing to test their skills against. Located on the beams for the monkey bar ladder swing are three additional accessories including a trapeze bar, which is ideal for all budding acrobats, and also two belt swings. Manufactured from a flexible plastic the belt swings wrap perfectly around the occupants body to provide a secure and comfortable fit.

Slide Features

The slide on the Burghley Climbing Frame is a 2.2 metre straight slide and is accessed from the 1.2 metre (4ft) upper deck. Made from a durable, UV protected HPDE material to ensure strength and safety whilst providing a speedy and exciting descent, the slide has raised sides to ensure a safe and secure ride back down to ground level.

Climbing Features

The Burghley climbing frame features a Rockwall ladder at the rear of the main fort which provides climbers of different abilities a range of challenges. More advanced climbers can pick their way to the top of the fort using the green moulded rockwall mounts, whilst those not feeling quite confident enough to tackle the advanced route yet can still use the rockwall ladder as a standard ladder, ascending rung by rung to the upper fort.

Play Features

Located on the upper fort level there is a chalkwall, which is ideal for leaving little notes, creating artistic doodles or writing down the rules for games. The upper deck is also ideal for having a picnic in the sky.

Installation Footprint

The Burghley climbing frame comes with all required fixings, pre drilled wood and a fully illustrated instruction manual. The overall footprint for the climbing frame is 4 metres wide by 3.51 metres in depth (without safety area) This climbing frame is designed for children aged between 3 and 10 years of age and is tested (EN-71 & ASTM) to meet requirements for private residential use – this set is not suitable for commercial use.

Straight Slide

Straight slide with an added wave gives thrilling descents from climbing frames! Our slides have extra high rails at the top of slide to help children get onto the slide and help prevent any falls. The bottom of the slide is flatter, to help children end with their feet (and not their bottoms!) on the ground. No more bumps and bruises and no more grass stains! The slides are made of durable, green plastic - a perfect colour choice during the summer as it won't attract the bugs! We have also reinforced the rear of our slides to make them extra strong, and to easily stand up to children running the wrong way up them!

Rockwall Ladder

This slatted rock wall ladder offers the best of both worlds for little climbers. For those who are feeling a little more adventurous, the moulded plastic climbing rocks are a natural choice for a daring climb. For those with a little less confidence, then the spaces between the ladder slats will provide an easier ascent to the top! The spaces between the slats are also easy to climb down - ideal if the queue for the slide is too long! Our rock wall ladders are a combination to ensure that all ages of children can enjoy them and maximise their use from the play set. 

Monkey Bars

Monkey Bars are a great addition to your climbing frame, such fun as kids love to climb, hang and swing like monkey's, you can buy wooden money bar climbing frames with play equipment or on their own. Monkey bars are a great addition to a climbing frame and our wooden monkey bar set can be added to most of our climbing frame models.

Monkey bars offer the perfect excuse for kids to monkey around while building their core strength and improving their motor skills. Using monkey bars will help children improve their upper body strength, which will help with their posture and physical well being. 

Our monkey bar climbers come in two varieties, the stand alone monkey bar, or the combination monkey bar and swings. Both have a ladder at the end, and easy grip rungs long the horizontal monkey climber. The monkey bar's are normally about 1.8m (6ft) from the ground.

Our monkey bars are manufactured from the same quality cedar wood as our climbing frames so they will come with a matching stain and wood finish. You can also be confident that our monkey bars will last, as cedar is resistant to rot, mold and insect infestation. They are specifically designed to be soft to touch so they are gentle on young hands so your children will spend more time enjoying their playset with no worries about splinters.

Our combination monkey bar climbers also offer the opportunity to have swings and swing accessories attached to the beam too. This offers the opportunity to maximize space in your garden, so if you have a smaller garden you can still have both a swings and a monkey bar so you children get maximum enjoyment from their playset. Safety Notice: We advise Swings & Swing Accessories should be removed from a combination monkey bar swing before using it as a monkey bar.

1.2m (4ft) High Deck

The 1.22m (4ft) play deck height refers to the distance from the ground to the climbing frames deck. Therefore the higher the deck height the further from the ground the deck is, the longer the rock wall  to get up, and the slide to ride down. The higher the deck means you have further to climb and slide. This obviously makes climbing up more of a challenge and sliding down generates more speed.  We have found that four foot decks are the most popular in type, according to customers it's accessible to younger children and still a challenge older kids until they are likely to be just want to go out all the time. Sorry parents climbing frames cant keep them as kids forever.  

Which deck height is most suitable for my children?

We suggest that the taller or older your children are the higher your deck should be, and it is also important to remember that the higher the deck the more use your children will get out of the climbing frame as they get older.

The 4ft deck is our most popular deck height as it is a fantastic compromise between being a sensible height for smaller or younger children, and still high enough to keep older children amused.

The tarp is also water-resistant so the kids can take cover during scattered showers! 

Sandpit Area

This great climbing frame has been used throughout the year by my two grandsons, aged 2yrs and 5yrs. They absolutely love it and it has certainly been worth the money. It has had one coat of weather resist treatment before the winter and is looking as good as new. A great buy - great quality, safe and enjoyable.
