Tree Top Camping with a private guide

Join us for overnight tree top camping at a stunning private location in the rural heart of the Isle of Wight.

This is the ultimate chance to camp close to nature. It’s simply you, a beautiful beech tree and a special ‘Tree Boat’ hammock as your bed for the night. We’ll provide your own private guide; a friendly Goodleaf tree climbing expert to be on hand throughout the experience. We’ve also got the creature comforts sorted – this is camping in a tree with everything taken care of!

Tree Top Camping

View from the tree

Tree top camping is an experience like no other. You’ll find peace, tranquillity and safety in the branches of the tree.  As veteran recreational tree climbers, we often sleep overnight in the canopy. We’ve used our skills and expertise to make this a fantastic adventure from start to finish.

We’ve chosen a gorgeous 15 metre beech tree for the camping. In the distance is the dramatic coastline of the West Wight.

We provide everything you need for tree top camping. This includes tree climbing training, a comfy bed for the night and great local food and drink. You’ll have a private guide and tree climbing expert on hand at all times. 

A unique experience

Relaxing in the canopy

On arrival you’ll meet your tree climbing guide and be welcomed to the site. You’ll enjoy a couple of hours learning recreational tree climbing with rope and harness. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and take your time to really ‘learn the ropes’.
An evening stroll to the local pub for supper follows. On return to Northcourt you’ll ascend into the tree canopy as the evening turns to night. There’s plenty of time to really enjoy the unique experience of being in the canopy at dusk.
In the canopy, your ‘Tree Boat’ hammock awaits, complete with comfy mattress, warm sleeping bag and liner. All you need is your pillow, pyjamas and sense of adventure. 
As darkness falls, relax and enjoy the ultimate night’s sleep as you breathe in the fresh Isle of Wight air.
