“Alastair Guy worked closely with us to create a bespoke design solution for this high-profile site, and produced an attractive piece that represented excellent value for money and ticked all the sustainability boxes in terms of specification. The thoughtful, sensitive and non-prescriptive design was based on a sound understanding of children’s play requirements and as a result, contains a wide range of play opportunities. The actual build went like clockwork and the team on site were a joy to work with. We would be delighted to work with Alastair Guy again in the future.”

“Alastair Guy Playgrounds are one of those very rare companies who understand what real children’s play should be like. Being a family firm they take great care in all aspects of the design and build process and are excellent builders in themselves. They are truly creative and have worked very closely with us over the last few years to build unique structures not seen elsewhere that are extremely popular with our most important visitors – the children. I can thoroughly recommend this company.” 

Alasdair McNee, Managing Director Wicksteed Park Ltd, Kettering, Northamptonshire

“The Play Boat at Calstock, built by Alastair Guy, is an exciting and original piece of play equipment which provides endless play and adventure for children in the area. The materials used and the design are very much in keeping with its location near the River Tamar and the wooded valley slopes. When ROSPA did their annual report for us this year, they described it as an excellent and unique structure.”

Julia Massey, Calstock Parish Council, Cornwall

“Alastair Guy came to our centre for children with autism, where he talked to both children and staff to decide how they would like their play equipment to be designed. The quality of the equipment is outstanding and Alastair’s use of natural products is a huge bonus. We cannot recommend Alastair highly enough.” 

Julie Taylor, Margaret Coates Centre, Somerset

“Our playground is known throughout the country. It has been a partnership between our vision and Alastair’s unique skills. We have, over the years, had so much fun and interaction, designing and improving the scope of our equipment to allow children an opportunity to test their courage and dexterity.”

“Alastair Guy’s beautifully crafted pieces sit very well within our parkland and enhance nature’s backdrop. They are the key extra ingredient in our Family Wood. We are confident they will inspire children for many generations to come.”

John-Michael Kennaway, Escot Estate, Devon

“I cannot praise Alastair’s commitment, flair and attention to detail highly enough. From the moment we sat down to an initial discussion I knew we had the right person to help us realise what we had in mind – in fact probably the only person – who was also a huge pleasure to work with.”

David Craddock, Eden Project, Cornwall

“Cornwall Council is very pleased with the play structure that Alastair Guy has produced… sympathetic to the local beach environment that we have here in Bude. The use of sustainable materials from within a local area mirrored our own views.”
