To enter the world of BeWILDerwood, there will be a short boat trip through the Dismal Dyke and into the Scary Lake, where Mildred will be lurking.
For those who wish to walk, there are jetties and boardwalks taking you into the magical world. The outdoor adventure park has many aerial tree houses, zip wires, slides, a maze and a scary ‘Broken Bridge,’ with winding pathways throughout the forest, ready for the fun to begin! Founder, Tom Blofeld, has written a series of accompanying children’s books, depicting the weird and wonderful characters that populate the woods, “A Boggle at BeWILDerwood.” Children will be able to experience the book through the real-life adventure park, similar to a healthy outdoors computer programme! The concept, put quite simply, is one of child’s play. The vision: to enhance an already striking natural playground and encourage children and their families to enjoy traditional, imaginative and healthy outdoor play together. BeWILDerwood is home to enchanting creatures such as Boggles, Twiggles, the Thornyclod Spider and vegetarian Crocklebogs!
The setting for the book, “A Boggle at BeWILDerwood”, by local children’s author Tom Blofeld, gives children the chance to follow in the footsteps of the lead character Swampy, a 2ft Marsh Boggle with a taste for adventure. High in the trees there are miniature Twiggle villages and low in the marshes Boggle village life will captivate your imagination. As you step inside the pages of Tom’s books – a character world of Boggles, Crocklebogs and Twiggles is brought to life in a quietly telling, yet unassuming way; leaving ample time and space for young people to realise their very own.
To BeWILDerwood, is to party! A time for fun, dancing, exploring, playing, sharing adventures and giggles and the Twiggle Team know how to throw a celebration!
