The last time we visited Treetop Adventure Golf in Highcross, Leicester, I was pregnant. This time, Bam Bam was walking herself around the course – more or less – so we were testing out what it is like to visit with very small kiddos.
Pizza And Beer
First, we popped in for pizza and drinks. I remember last time we weren’t overly enamored with the pizzas. However, this time they have worked on their dough recipe and I am pleased to report that it is *much* improved. This is a great, reasonably priced dish to grab now – I really liked the brie pizza with a bit of extra added bacon. The baby enjoyed a spot of goat’s cheese, pesto and rocket, while the Boy was all about pepperoni with some added peppers.
I teamed our meal with a caipirinha – still the best choice in Treetop in my opinion as they have a surprisingly excellent choice of cachaca. The Boy had a Satzuma from Thornbridge. Delicious, but still inexplicably billed as a ‘local’ beer. Admittedly the Peak District isn’t that far away. But there are rather a lot of breweries between here and there.
On to the course and we are rather fond of Treetop’s cute mini golf course. We had no idea what it would be like with a little one who can barely walk. To our surprise, they had a teeny little club for Bam Bam to use, which she immediately took to swinging around violently. With all of the animal noises and the jungle backdrop she was totally in love with the place. The golf was just an added bonus really.
We went early so it was relatively quiet, which was good as we were obviously very slow to make our way around the course. It is really accessible, for either wheelchairs or prams, you can easily wheel your way around the whole course. Bam Bam was a natural, she got a hole in one on every single hole. But she couldn’t get a sticker because Covid. 😐
Treetop Adventure Golf
However after a while, a group started to catch us up. We were both feeling really a bit hot and bothered, trying to play and keep the baby entertained. So we called it a day after 9 holes. It had already taken longer than the whole course normally would!! I think it would be quite nice to have a baby-friendly session where people can take it easy and just do a few holes for fun. We really loved it and had a lot of fun, but it is a big day out for a little baby and quite a long activity.
Massive thanks to the Treetop staff who were lovely and welcoming. They have great family facilities – highchairs and baby changing are all available and clean. They were all really good with Bam Bam and she thoroughly enjoyed it. And so did we. Great family activity.
We were invited to review the activity, but my post is a reflection of my honest experience.
