Kids Parties

Space to run around? Check. Food? Check. Magical fort? Check.

We’re here to help you plan the perfect kids party at Dalkeith Country Park. We can take group bookings for Fort Douglas, Archery, Bushcraft and Ranger activities and also have a great venue within Restoration Yard for food, drink and party games.

The Hay Box

Perfect for little adventurers, the Hay Box is a venue within Restoration Yard, conveniently located near the entrance to Fort Douglas and connecting the courtyard with the park. It’s ideal for indoor games and refueling after enjoying the great outdoors. And cake, of course. It’s painted white so is a blank canvas for you to bring in your own decorations too. There’s also a Sonos system for playing music.

The numbers

Capacity: The Hay Box itself is for a minimum of 10 children and maximum of 20.

Timings: The birthday packages includes use of this private room for 1 hour 45 minutes.
