Birthday Parties

We host children’s birthday parties all year round in our wonderful woodland. We can tailor each party to suit individual ages and requirements so, as long as it has a woodland element to it, we can do it!

The birthday boy or girl can explore the woodlands with their friends, cook on the camp fire and generally have a fabulous time among the trees (and there are a few party games thrown in too).

If you require a particular party theme, please let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
