For a birthday party with a difference why not try a bushcraft birthday where you build your own shelter den, learn about the nature in the woods, light your own campfire and toast marshmallows. Contact Sue Tuerena Outdoor Adventure for more information.

And after all your exertions why not book a table in the café to refuel. We are fully licensed to serve alcohol and have a wide selection of wines and beers to quench your thirst.
