We can help you celebrate your child’s special day with a pony party or a countryside party. Our excellent indoor and outdoor facilities allow for many options for parties all year round. We have many years experience of entertaining children safely and aim to provide an enjoyable experience full of memories.


Thank you Natalie and all the team at EDRA for making Emily’s 7th birthday a spectacular one! Emily and her friends loved her pony party at EDRA. Pony riding, decorating the ponies with glitter and ribbons, games and a treasure hunt! They all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We can’t thank you all enough for a stress free, memorable and magical time!

We can host a pony party with or without riding and you can also choose from a range of other activities to suit you. Children can groom and decorate the ponies, play pony themed games, take part in a treasure hunt or pony craft activities. They can even learn about looking after the ponies and have a go at doing the stables if they want to! You can be assured that we are very safety conscious and have high standards of welfare for our ponies. Our parties follow our ethical practices, so we can provide you with a fun, enjoyable experience without any discomfort or abuse for the ponies. We provide a rosette and a certificate for each child to go home with alongside their happy memories!


Our stables are set in 27 acres of beautiful East Devon countryside. Kids just love the space and freedom of our fields and they are available for a countryside themed party. We offer a range of activities to choose from, including a nature trail, games in our orchard, nature crafts, treasure hunts, grooming the ponies, feeding the ponies and taking a walk with the goats. Our parties are available all year round. We have indoor facilities, so many of the activities can still go ahead even if the weather turns out to be unkind on the day. Every child goes home with a certificate and a rosette alongside some enthusiastic tales of their adventures!


We cannot provide food but we have a lovely room where the children can have their birthday tea or cake (provided by you). Or we have picnic benches outside with a view across the valley to the sea.

We have a toilet and hand washing facilities with warm water.

We are able to adapt activities according to the weather, so we offer parties all year round.

We want to help make your child’s celebration special. Please call or email Natalie to discuss how we can help you.
