Last weekend saw us spend five whole days celebrating Betty’s birthday. Bit extreme I know but, I love a birthday and turning 5 felt so huge to me that I wanted to spoil her rotten!
The final celebration was probably the one I’d been looking forward to most and I’m so glad we saved it until last.
We headed to Ash Green in Surrey for a very magical experience with My Little Unicorn.
From the moment we turned up I was blown away.
I’m just as bad as Betty and love all things girly, sparkly, pretty, pink… unicorn themed, so to see bunting, toadstools, pink pom-poms as we entered the forest was just wonderful!
A magical entrance!
Below I will go through handy information you might like to know incase you’d like to take your little one.
Top tip… if you’re a keen photographer, take your camera!! I decided to leave mine at home and am still kicking myself as my phone shots just don’t do it justice.
What is it?
“We are based in Ash Green on the Surrey/Hampshire border. We bring the magic, sparkle and WOW to your event.
From birthday parties, weddings, festivals to photoshoots we offer a wide variety of unicorn magic!
With one or more of our unique and friendly Unicorns
And now you can have your party in our new and enchanting venue, The Woodland Wonderland”
What did our experience involve?
We purchased tickets for an Easter event so with that ticket we received- an Easter egg hunt & chocolate gift, a unicorn ride, drinks, colouring activities, grooming and walking of a unicorn.
Where is it?
Ash Green, Surrey, GU12 6EH
There were some little children there during our time there.
I’m not sure how they got on really but I would say 2 years upwards would be fine.
Will little legs get tired?
There’s no large amounts of walking at all. It’s all in one area so no, little legs will be fine.
They are SO friendly. Really calm and well behaved, they don’t seem to mind being fussed over at all.
There is a staff member close by at all times, holding the reigns, they never let go of them.
What should we wear?
All clothing is appropriate, I would just advise closed footwear like trainers/boots. I wore sandals which weren’t really a problem but it’s set in a forest with a bark/ foresty flooring so I was always shaking my feet to gets bits out.
How long are the unicorn rides?
I would say each child gets about 5 minutes on the unicorn.
They are done in pairs and away from the rest of the group that is with you.
Helmets are provided.
Everyone else waits in the main area and the children play on the play equipment/ groom a third unicorn/ take it for a walk, complete colouring sheets or cuddle and stroke other animals (we were lucky as we had lambs and chicks- perfect time to visit!)
There’s a playground area including a trampoline, wendy house, swing, slides, small climbing frame.
Our Easter Egg hunt took us around the back of the site where they have little enclosures for each unicorn and the magic continues there as well. It’s so special!
Is there food and drink?
For us, there was no food. You’d be ok to take in a few small snacks though.
They provided squash and water.
No coffee shop type facility (I think I overheard that’s a possible long term plan)
Toilets on site away from the event.
No sinks that I could see but hand gel/ wipes available.
Lots of seating.
Free parking on site. Very accessible, all parked in one small area. Last in, first out.
The Easter gift
That’s all the information I can think to provide right now but do feel free to ask me anything if there’s something I’ve missed off.
We really did have such a special time and it was the perfect way to round Betty turning 5.
I just want to add that Betty is really very wary of animals but she was taken in by the whole thing and loved every second of stroking the unicorns, cuddling them (!) and even riding one which blew me away. She really didn’t want to but the staff clearly had experience of that and somehow persuaded her to hop on. It was such a proud moment for her and me to see her up there.
The event was managed in a very professional, kind, friendly and experienced way and I would really recommend that you check it out!
