Covid-19 June 2020 Currently, only the walks, nature trails and parklands are open. None of the farm attractions are open at the moment. We are following strict Public health England and Government guidance and will open the rest of the farm when it is safe to do so.
EXPLORE THE FARM
Nature Trails and Walks
We have a variety of beautiful walks and trails around the farm which can be enjoyed in all seasons. Trails range between 500 metres and 3 kilometres – there’s something for everyone! Our trails are very easy to follow – simply follow the coloured arrows!
Our daily Piglet Race is a real favourite here on the farm! Adult participation is always very welcome and everyone also has the opportunity to guess the winning pig – with prizes for all winners!
Paddocks and Farm Animals
We are a family working farm and have many varieties of cows, sheep, pigs and goats. (Too many to mention here)! You will find all of these animals around the farm and walks, with great opportunities to get up close and personal!
Small Animal Handling
Throughout the year we always have a variety of fluffy animals to handle during our Animal Handling Sessions. We have rabbits, guinea pigs, chicks and ducklings. Animal petting sessions are held throughout the day and supervised by one of our members of staff.
We also have a large display of chickens, geese, turkeys and ducks! (These are not so keen on being handled but love to be fed)!
We have 3 gorgeous ponies, Archie, Max and Milkshake, who like nothing more than to be ridden on by our little visitors. Pony rides take place every day and are available to book in the shop on your arrival at the farm. Children must be at least 2 years old and weigh no more than 6 stone in weight. *£2 extra
The West Lodge Barrel Ride
The Barrel Ride is another favourite on the farm, children love the double circuit of the outdoor play area and being driven past Donald the Sleepy Dragon! The barrel ride runs every hour and is free to everyone. You can go on as many times as you like!
Enjoy a picnic and watch the children play on the big fort! Our Outdoor Adventure playground is home to slides, swings, rope bridges, roundabouts and a huge sandpit. Children can also sit on our old tractor, a classic Fordson Major– something for everyone!
Ride on Tractor Park
For the future farmers in your family! We have a lovely, big, tarmacked tractor park with a large variety of ride on tractors – suitable from toddlers upwards!
The Old Grain Adventure Barn
Leading the way in Timber Play we designed our indoor adventure barn on the Farm itself and the adventures that Farmer Ed enjoyed as a child! At it’s centre the Adventure Barn houses an Oak tree with bridges, tunnels, climbing wall and slides to keep your children amused for hours. There is also a designated fenced off area for pre walkers with an interactive “pond” (lights, not water) and minature climbing house with slide.
SOCKS MUST be worn in the adventure play area
The Indoor Adventure Barn has a café which serves hot and cold food and drinks throughout the day. It is also home to all of our birthday parties ( for more information please visit out parties page)
Indoor Tractor Barn
When the weather’s not so great and your little farmer’s need their tractor fix – don’t worry we have an indoor tractor barn where they can play all day!
