Absolutely outstanding - we had my daughter’s 4th birthday, fairy trail there it was amazing. Sam was so engaging with all the children, and their little imaginations ran wild. Magical from start to finish. All children (and adults) enjoyed it Can’t wait to return soon!

Just home from my daughter's 9th birthday held at At Play in the Woods. We were blessed with good weather and all the kids had a fantastic, muddy time. Sam, the host, was brilliant and made it easy. Lots of memories made and a welcome change from the usual soft play, assault course style indoor birthday.

We booked my son's 5th and even though the weather was wet we all (including the adults) had so much fun, one parent even said it was the best kids party he had been to in a long time. The children were never bored. Would definitely recommend.

My 4yo son had a wonderful birthday at At Play in the Woods - 'best party ever' he said in the car on our way home! It's such a great idea to get children (and their families) adventuring together outside. It was a perfect length to get stuck in with lots of different games, some free play and chill out time for sausages, toasted marshmallows and cake. Big thank you to Sam and the team!

At Play In The Woods is a no-brainer venue for your children's birthday party. The great outdoors, lunch around the fire (and toasted marshmallows), building dens, hide and seek, mud kitchen – It's the perfect recipe for a fantastic time with your little one and their friends! Despite it being a rather wet day, our 5-year-old loved his forest party with his friends!

We had our Son's 7th birthday party here and everyone had a brilliant time, including the adults! Sam was a great party host and really entertained the kids. The toasted marshmallows were a big hit and we also cooked hot dogs on the camp fire. Would highly recommend them for birthday parties.

Playing is integral to children’s enjoyment of their lives, their health and their development.

Children and young people whatever their age, culture, ethnicity or social and economic background, need and want to play, indoors and outdoors, in whatever way they can. Through playing, children are creating their own culture, developing their abilities, exploring their creativity and learning about themselves, other people and the world around them.

We’re all about making opportunities…

Our philosophy is to inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences and provide them with an opportunity to appreciate the natural world to encourage responsibility for nature conservation in later life.

We had my son’s 5th birthday party here and it was absolutely brilliant! The guys were so funny and tuned into the age group immediately. The activities were the right balance of structured and chilled. There isn’t a thing I would change about it. One of the discerning 5 year olds turned round at the end and said to his mum, “that’s the best birthday party I’ve ever been to”. Enough said!

My daughter (KS2) went to a birthday party for a classmate here, and had a fantastic time. All the children arrived in the car park at the end enthused and excited about their time in the woods, with tales of their dens, their activities and how they’d each had a chance to shine. Highly recommend.
