Here at STAG Mumbler, we are always keen to hear your recommendations for great days out. From soft play centres to the great outdoors, from woodland walks to farms, we want to hear about them all. If you have any to recommend, simply drop us an email telling us all about them at email@example.com
Scramble on the cargo net, tread the horizontal tyres and cross the swinging bridge.
This exhilarating indoor ropes adventure course will see you tackle 16 different stages as you trek along the course. You’ll be safely clipped in – of course – and you’ll be given a full induction but then you’re on your own.
It’s a breathtaking experience and one we’re sure you’ll come back to time and again – just don’t look down…
Who will enjoy Aerial Trek?
Everyone aged 5 and over will love Aerial Trek at Summit Indoor Adventure.
Will you be king of the pins or queen of the gutter ball?
How could we build this fantastic centre without a bowling lane – and a boutique one at that.
‘Strike’ out and grab a ‘spare’ pair of friends for an evening out or book a lane for a lunchtime laugh or some fun family time.
Bowling is for everyone of all ages and because you’ll be right next door to the bar and diner you can focus on your game while enjoying drinks and snacks.
We have six full length lanes each for up to six people per lane. Just make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Who can bowl?
Whether you can strike every time or are giving it a go for the first time, it’s great fun for all.
If you’re an inline skater, scooter fan, skateboard addict or can’t get enough of life pulling stunts on two wheels, you’re going to love Summit Ride and Skate – North Yorkshire’s friendliest indoor skate park.
Complete beginners and pros will go mad for our mix of rails, ramps and pipes.
Here’s the techy bit. Our park has a 1.8m quarter pipe, a 1.5m street spine, a hipped street spine and hipped quarter-pipe, couple of jump boxes, a flatbank, grind boxes and rails.
Who will love Summit Ride and Skate?…..You gotta be 5 or over to be in the game.
Why do we host meet ups?
Finding the courage to attend a parent and child group (particularly as a new parent) can be really tough. Who will be there? Will anyone chat to me? are all thoughts we know many parents and carers have, this is why we host meet ups. At each event you’ll find the STAG Mumbler Team (in our purple hoodies) so you have the choice to come along and simply enjoy the benefit of 1/2 price play, alternatively, if you fancy a natter and a cuppa while your mini mumbler plays, then you can come and sit with us. We love meeting our mumblers face to face.
If you have any questions about the meet up, or would like to drop us a message to say you’re coming so we can look out for you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Booking is not necessary.
The STAG Mumbler Toy Exchange
We’ll also be using our meet-ups as an opportunity to host a toy exchange. We all know how quickly children seem to grow out of their toys, but it can expensive buying new ones, this is why we have the toy exchange. We’ll come along with our baskets of pre-loved toys and you can bring along yours. Leave yours with us (for someone else to swap) and help yourself to something new to take home. Perhaps you’re a parent who’s struggling financially….no problem at all, simply take a toy, there’s no need to swap it with one of your own. There’s no need to feel guilty, we all have times when things can be tight, perhaps at some point in the future, you’ll have the opportunity to donate. Raising children can be expensive, so the more we can help each other, the better.
Craft Corner or Local Business Showcase
Each meet up we also have either a lovely local business showcasing what they have to offer, or a mini craft station where we bring along our special box of crafts and let our Mini Mumblers get creative with something to take home. We’ve had some beautiful cards and paintings done over the last few events.

My name is Sally and I work with Siobhan, we are both Forest School leaders with over 20 years experience between us in Early Years education and outdoor learning. We believe that Forest School offers your child the opportunity to build confidence, self esteem, independence and problem solving, all essential skills for life.
‘Teddy absolutely loved his first forest school experience today and totally fell Inlove with the “girls” as he calls them (leaders). Will definitely be back each week. Even I loved it too.’ MS, May 19
We believe in the freedom of child directed play but also offer the opportunity for children to learn fire, shelter and tool skills from an early age. Primarily, we are concerned with safety and once children understand how to stay safe they have the freedom to become their own assessors of risk giving them independence to learn.
Our Forest School is in the Forestry Commission, Bishop Wood LS25 (Nr Selby). We run Early Years (0-5 year olds) sessions called ‘Little Shoots’ and family days at weekends. We will also be running sessions for children with additional needs and school holiday clubs for children aged 4-11 years, these are sessions where children can be unaccompanied by an adult.
We always have a fire and make camp fire food, create craft using natural materials and have free play provision of hammocks, bug hunting, low ropes, fairies etc age depending and have FUN playing out! We also offer Woodland Birthday Parties.

Bishop Wood is a large, peaceful wood a few minutes’ drive from Selby, North Yorkshire, Sherburn in Elmet and South Milford. There is free parking and the main paths are wide and flat. Some were a bit muddy but otherwise it is gentle terrain for disabled people or those wanting a relaxing walk. Would be good for cyclists.
You can have a nice walk around Bishop Wood, but you usually need your good wellies! Good for those whose kids like to splash in lots of mud!
