Mobberley. A beautiful rural location close to Wlmslow, Hale, Knutsford and Manchester.

How many adults need to stay?

A minimum of two adults are required to stay with the group of 16. Outdoorparties organize the activities and parents can join in the fun. We also offer complimentary teas and coffees beside the wood burner in our cosy parent’s tearoom. Please note dogs are not permitted on site.

What about the weather?

Thanks to our shelter we are able to run parties in all weathers. Rain won’t spoil your fun! Arts and crafts, team games and the campfire can all take place under our shelter.

What to wear?

Children are required to wear appropriate clothing for a day outdoors what ever the weather. Long sleeved tops and full length trousers are ideal due to possible contact with nettles, brambles ect. Children may get muddy, so old warm waterproof clothes are advisable as well as sturdy footwear eg. trainers or wellies.

Timing

Please note the birthday child and family can arrive 10 minutes before the start of their party. Please do not turn up earlier as we will be setting up.

Guests, please arrive promptly for the start of the party so as no to miss out on any of the fun.
