... Bespoke Birthday Bashes

 ~ O ~

From the Ashes... is pleased to offer ...Bespoke Birthday Bashes. Set in an acre of mixed broad-leaf and coniferous woodland, alongside the openness of a paddock. From the Ashes... can cater to your individual needs, for any age group and size of party. Tailor-made to your own specifications, we can offer activities to suit a range of ages, giving you the opportunity to relax and enjoy your own party, whilst we take the stress out of the organisation. For larger family parties there may be the chance to sleep over and bring your own tents to extend the fun a bit longer...  Additional costs would apply

From the Ashes... provides a Forest School Practitioner and another adult with Forest School experience, to assist with the smooth running of your party.

Terms & Conditions

  1. From the Ashes… requires a non-refundable deposit of £75.00 on receipt of booking. The balance is to be paid in advance of the party by cheque or BACs transfer with any additionals, i.e. extra heads/food, added on.
  2. All parties are to have completed a medical/consent form and this is to be received at least a week prior to the party, so that special dietary and medical requirements may be catered for.
  3. The birthday parent/carer is to act as in loco parentis for the other children and will be responsible for accompanying the children to the toilet at the house.
  4. On booking the party a choice of three activities are to be chosen from the list provided – one from each column. Should any of the activities not be available due to the resources, then From the Ashes… will advise within a couple of days of booking and an alternative should be selected.

These can be provided by the birthday parent i.e., family members or friends, or for an extra charge of £25.00, From the Ashes… can organise additional cover on availability.
  7. In extreme weather conditions i.e. thunderstorms or high winds, From the Ashes… reserves the right to postpone the birthday party to another mutually available date.
