Product Features


The Sherborn comes with engineered uprights (legs), giving it even better stability and strength.  These engineered cedar uprights are now 8cm x 8cm and have been developed to give much less cracking, checking and twisting than in standard pine or spruce larger dimensional lumber.  Our new uprights are soft to the touch, very strong and free from splinters, sharp edges and deep cracks that could harm small hands.  The Selwood Products brand is synonymous with safety, fun and family.

The Sherborn climbing frame is a swing set with a huge range of features. It comes with plenty to keep your children occupied as well as a café style area for them to rest in between sliding, swinging and climbing. There is also the hugely popular trapeze bar for all those acrobats in training. The trapeze bar is great for building up strength as well as improving co-ordination, and not to mention imagination. 
With its yellow and green, UV-resistant tarp roof, your little ones can play what ever the weather. Beneath the 120cm high play deck is a partially enclosed canvas lower playhouse. This is the perfect place for them to relax and catch their breath. Or they could indulge in some make believe and play shops or restaurants. The two café style seats are superb little extras that give this frame yet another handy function.
The play deck is 119cm by 90cm and can be accessed by the slatted rockwall. This has professional style climbing rocks as well as clever gaps between each slat to enable younger children to climb the ladder with ease. Once they have reached the deck, your little climbers will find a vinyl chalk board in prime position for sketching the view. The Sherborn climbing frame has a 220cm straight slide which has a wave in the middle for an even more exciting ride.
The frame also has two belt swings, which grip the hips and keep little ones from slipping off, and a trapeze bar which are all attached to the innovative monkey bar/swing combo beam. This is a fantastic space saver which gives you a wide range of features without causing you to compromise on the space the frame takes up. The trapeze bar is a firm favourite with active children who love to monkey around. To use the monkey bars simply unclip the swings and trapeze bar in minutes.  
Manufactured from high quality cedar wood and pre stained with an attractive redwood stain, the wood is pre-cut and pre-drilled which helps make home-build as easy as possible. There is also an illustrated owner’s manual showing you exactly how to build the set. All you need is basic DIY tools.
The Sherborn 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.
The Sherborn includes the following product features;

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.


Vinyl Roof

Climbing Frames UK range of playsets and climbing frames come with either a durable, water-resistant and UV-resistant tarp roof, or a fully wooden roof. The tarp's are usually found on smaller,cheaper playsets, and provide protection through the summer months from the sun so the kids can enjoy the warm weather without running the risk of getting burnt. The tarp is also water-resistant so the kids can take cover during scattered showers! 

Café Counter

The café counter is an open serving hatch situated underneath the play deck. Why would I buy a climbing frame with a cafe counter?

The cafe counter a great way to broaden your child’s imagination. It adds a whole new element to your playset and once they are worn out swinging and sliding they may want to play shops or restaurants. Anyone with children knows that they jump from one game to another and one toy to another, so the cafe counter enables them to incorporate creative and imaginative play into their playset.

Counters are all good, you can choose between plastic and wooden seating, and some counters will have a rotating chalk wall for use inside and out.

Chalk Wall

Drawing is the perfect way to encourage a child's creativity, and what better way than have a vinyl chalk wall on your playset from Climbing Frames UK! And with such a wonderful view as that from the top of the playhouse, who wouldn't want to draw it? The vinyl chalk wall is easy to wipe clean, so your little Monets and Rembrandts can keep their creative juices flowing!

Really pleased with the end result. Instructions were very comprehensive, my only gripe would be that the size conversions and part numbers were across different pages so took time to marry up. Good quality product which was great value for money in comparison with other retailers.

This is an excellent climbing frame with very easy to follow instructions. My children spend most of their time, when it's dry, in the garden and using the climbing frame -- an excellent buy.
