Parties are currently available at Exmouth and Ilfracombe Forest School

We offer two time slots on Sundays at our Exmouth site. The morning time slot runs from 9.30am to midday. The afternoon from 1pm – 3.30pm.

A morning/afternoon party costs £150 for up to 12 children with additional children charged at £10 each. These prices include VAT.

We can easily accommodate numbers up to 20, but if you are expecting to have more children than this please get in touch as we may need to provide extra staffing.

For younger children’s parties, ages 1 – 3, we ask that ALL parents remain, therefore as our parking is restricted to 14 cars this may limit the number of attendees.

Bookings for parties are taken on-line for Exmouth and you will be asked to pay a £50 deposit at the time of booking. Please select the required date on our bookings calendar to book.

what happens?

Birthday parties begin with the guest of honour lighting the campfire, before the children get to explore and play in the woods. They then get set the ‘waterproof challenge’ of building their own den, and then it’s time for hot dogs, marshmallows and cake!

Parents supply the sausages, bread rolls, birthday cake, napkins and any condiments required.

We supply hot chocolate, marshmallows and real coffee and tea for the adults.

Attendees must be wearing suitable clothing for being in the woods. If you’re celebrating a winter birthday this means lots of layers, waterproofs, wellies and gloves in the winter. If they’re summer born, long trousers and sturdy shoes will do the job.

What do Others Say About our Parties?

Thanks very much for a really fantastic party last Saturday

Chris and Tom kept 18 very active 6 year olds entertained for 2½ hours without drawing breath! The feedback from children and parents alike was that everyone had a brilliant time and would definitely want to come back for more!

Please pass on our thanks (with awe) to Chris and Tom for their hard work on the day and to you for answering my many queries

I am hoping you are available during half term as I am being hounded by my son to book up….! 🙂

Seeing the children having fun, playing and working together outside was brilliant

Chris and his volunteers were great with the kids. Ewan asked on the way home if he could have his 7th birthday there too. See you next year.

Ok so we didn’t quite get the princess out of the party girl but she was a princess with attitude on her ‘Brave’ themed birthday party

She had an amazing party and all the kids enjoyed being outdoors. Everybody commented on what a great party it was and it truly was a very different experience. Chris pitched this just right to get all the children involved and having a great time. The real bonus was hot drinks for the adults and the compost toilet was an experience too!

I have never felt so relaxed during a kids party, the only problem is what we do to up-stage this next year!

I fully intend to book Katy into Saturday club and I look forward to what Exeter Forest School has to offer in the future!
