Parties

A Manor Farm birthday is one to remember. Take your pick from one of three animal activities, then let the fun begin! 

  • Donkey rides out in the Paddock (weight limit 6 stone/ 38kg) 
  • Owl holding at Hoots Hollows (ages four and over) 
  • Small animal petting in the Animal Chat Room. 

Hosted by one our farm leaders, our parties are two hours long and cost £190 for up to 12 children. Additional children are charged at £11 each, up to a maximum of 24 children. We allow around 30 minutes for your chosen animal activity. After the animal activity, if the weather is fine, children will be able to feed the ducks before riding Ernie the Milk Float down to the Fort Adventure Playground. In wet weather, children can play in the Indoor Playbarn. We allow around 45 minutes for free play, followed by 30 minutes for the party tea. After the party, you and your guests are welcome to stay on the farm for the rest of the day.

Included in the price is one accompanying adult for each party guest and six accompanying adults for the birthday girl or boy. Additional children up to a total of 24 children and additional adults can be included on your booking after your party has been confirmed, but all amends must be made by seven days before the party date. 

We provide downloadable invitations, a party tea held in a private party room, plus a small toy and free return ticket for each child to take home. Printed invitations are available to purchase at £1 for each pack of five.

* Please be aware if you select a donkey ride party, you will be asked to choose another party type as your back-up option in case of wet weather.

Book a birthday party and let us do all the hard work for you, so you can relax and enjoy the celebration. 

On the day of the party, please arrive 15 minutes before the time your party starts. One of our party leaders will meet you in the main entrance. Whilst you wait for everyone to arrive, if the weather is fine children can play in The Burrows Play Area. Your child’s presents will be collected from Antlers Bistro and stored in the main entrance for collection after the party. Your birthday cake (if you have brought one), will be taken directly to the party room. 

Once everyone has arrived, you will be taken to your chosen animal activity. At least two adults will be required to stay with the party at all times. The Manor Farm party host is not a supervisor and all party children, in particular childcare and toileting, remain the responsibility of the adults in the party group for the duration of the party. 

Each party guest is welcome to bring one adult. This is in addition to the six adults accompanying the birthday child. Please be aware that any party guests arriving with siblings or additional adults not included on the booking will be charged the full entrance price. 

The children’s party tea includes: selection of sandwiches (jam, ham, cheese, tuna, chocolate spread), crisps, cucumber and carrot sticks, raisins, mini fairy cakes and ice cream tubs, plus jugs of water and squash. We are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements, including allergies – please let us know about this when making the booking.

Finally, if you’re bringing your own cake, please bring a cake knife, candles, matches and serviettes if cutting for party bags. 

Please note: 
-    We don’t allow balloons or streamers because they can scare our animals. 
-    We don’t allow visitors to bring their own party refreshments for adults or children other than the birthday cake.
