Zip Line Dreams Come True at Pickle Cottage

As a seasoned DIY enthusiast and TV presenter, I’ve always dreamed of having a zip line in my garden. And now, I’m thrilled to say that my childhood fantasy has finally become a reality!

A zip line adventure in the making

My husband Joe and I decided to take the plunge and install a 50ft zip line at our beloved Pickle Cottage. It’s been a dream of ours, and our kids’, for as long as we can remember. We’re so grateful to have the space to make it happen.

Our beautiful garden, perfect for a zip line adventure

Of course, it wasn’t as simple as just deciding to get a zip line. Oh no, it required a lot of maths and physics to calculate the perfect installation. I was about to attempt a DIY job, but then I realised it would end in disaster! Thankfully, we found an incredible small business,, who made our zip line dreams come true.

Getting hands-on with the garden makeover

As you may know, I’ve been focusing on improving our garden at Pickle Cottage. From operating a tractor digger (with Joe cheering me on from a safe distance) to creating a beautiful pond, it’s been a labour of love. And now, with the zip line in place, our garden is the perfect haven for adventure and fun.

The finished product - our very own zip line!

I’m so grateful to have the space and resources to make our dreams a reality. And I hope our story inspires you to chase your own childhood fantasies, no matter how big or small they may seem.
