Product Features

PLEASE NOTE: We only have 2 of these for sale.

Thunder Ridge Climbing Frame is an all-in-one package that includes swings, slide, playhouse, picnic table, and monkey bars, and a ready for home build play set.

The main treehouse fort is accessed from the rear either up the flat step ladder (with handrails), or vie the monkey bars. Once on the play deck your children will be protected from the sun by the wooden roof.

The slide come from the front of the climbing frame fort. The slide has a step at the bottom to help children put their feet down, rather than slide onto the grass/mud.

The swing beam includes two belt swings and a 2-child glider, which can be used by either one or two children.

Below the climbing frame fort is a wooden playhouse with picnic table area. There's a door to access the playhouse from the front, or children can enter from the open rear 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!

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.


Ladders provide a safe and easy entry into a climbing frame utilising easy grip rungs or flat steps to allow children to safely get up onto the playset deck to access the additional features such as cabin windows, chalk wall, or slide entrance. Step ladders also enable safe exit from a treehouse fort.

1.5m (5ft) High Deck

The 1.52m (5ft) 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 five foot decks can accommodate the very popular tube slides. With the higher decks you get a greater view down to gardens and beyond, just be check that your neighbors are okay with the structure as it will be above most garden fences.    

Which deck height is most suitable for my children?

The higher the height of the deck the more challenging and adventurous the climbing frame becomes. The climb up to the deck is higher and the slide down is longer. The higher deck means that as your children grow they will still be able to get enjoyment from their frame even as they get much older. 

One great benefit of purchasing a climbing frame with a 1.5m (5ft) deck height is that the deck size also increases as the deck gets higher. This means the play sets are able to cater to several siblings, and their friends without any problem at all, and as the older ones can still play on it they are kept busy and active too.

2-Child Glider

The glider swing allows two children to ride back-to-back and is compatible with all of our Selwood Products climbing frames. Brilliant news for those with a smaller garden but with more than two children! Naturally, it can also be used by just one child too! Made of yellow and green plastic, the glider complements your climbing frame wonderfully enabling multiple children to play together, and to offer a safe and secure swing to use before children can swing on their own normal swing seat. 

Wooden Roof

Climbing frames with fully wooden roofs look amazing in your garden and provide your with a strong sturdy playset that will protect them from sunshine or rain.

Our playsets come with either a vinyl tarp roof, or a fully wooden roof.  

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.

Playhouse Package

Climbing Frames UK has a huge range of playsets and wooden climbing frames with fully incorporated wooden playhouse packages. The playhouse is situated directly below the fort play deck, and includes a door, two playhouse windows and a serving wall with two stools.

Medium Garden

Medium gardens make a great home for a whole host of our fabulous climbing frames. However, we do advise that you carefully consider the size of the garden you plan to put the climbing frame in before making your final decision. We have a fantastic range of climbing frames that are ideal for those with medium sized gardens. Climbing Frames UK truly believe you don’t need a huge outdoor space to get a playset full of exciting features. 

Large Gardens

Those lucky things with large gardens will be able to make the most of our outdoor climbing frames. Although all our playsets have a wonderful range of play features, it makes sense that the bigger playsets can accommodate more features such as the monkey bars. Large gardens are also able to make the most of our wide variety of accessories and additional extras like picnic tables, wooden playhouses or sand tables. 


Swings have been around forever and everyone remembers enjoying swings from their childhood, whether it be playing at the park, or a tyre or rope in the tree at home, we all seem to have fond memories. Playing with siblings and friends, swinging across ditches or spinning round-and-round.

When sat on, our flexible belt swing seats grip the hips and provide a comfortable and supportive seat for your child as they swing. They are also designed to clip on and clip off should you wish to swap them with either a baby bucket or a trapeze.

Product Review by Lucky Dad of 2 Girls United Kingdom on18/04/2016


We found this climbing frame easier than we thought to build. 2 of us spent around 8 hours building it and found the instructions very good. The only very minor part that didn't fare well was the door lock, it broke within days of being built but we replaced it with a bit of wood. The kids love their climbing frame and their ages are 2, 5 and 8 and it suits them all. It was a good choice and we are happy to recommend.

Product Review by Karen Beveridge United Kingdom on31/08/2015


I must confess to being the type who rarely writes reviews but in this case ...... AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!! There are so many good things to say about this company and the playground. The service was first rate, we even had it delivered abroad after shopping around for local suppliers in Belgium - nothing was too much effort for them and it arrived promptly and exceptionally well packaged. Great price and superb quality - not often two expressions used in the same sentence. I must admit I think I got nearly as much pleasure assembling it as our two girls have had from playing on it. Lets face it - how often do you get the opportunity to build a 1000+ piece 3D full size jigsaw puzzle! The instructions were superbly detailed, well written, logical and easy to follow - plus not only was nothing missing, there was even spare ironmongery as well!! There were only a couple of stages which required two people. And so to the real test - two kids...... they absolutely love everything about it. The design is fantastic and so well thought out - so many different ways in which they find to play on, in, around and with it, it really does keep them entertained for hours, they simply love it and can never get enough time on it. All in all the best product I have ever bought online - thank you.
