Customer Testimonials

“Thank you so much for organising Frankie’s Muddy Warrier’s experience for his  6th Birthday. It was a fantastic experience he (and we!) will never forget…

We had 14 excited boys on a cold, but sunny January day.  Sharon did a great job getting everyone’s  attention and interest and keeping them entertained.  It was so nice to be outdoors (especially for a winter birthday!), and to get the children active in a beautiful natural environment – they also loved getting a bit muddy!!  It was a really good fun, action-packed 2 hours which included games, bug hunting, den building, helping with the campfire (rewarded with hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows!). The boys even had a quick game of football!  It was great to have an experience which was really different. Sharon is so knowledgeable and a real natural with the kids. I would highly recommend this outdoor learning experience, and will definitely be looking at another booking when my younger son is bit older.” Hannah King, 8th February 2016
