The Children’s Farm and Big Play BarnPlaces to Go
posted February 8th 2019
- A warm welcome from informative staff
- Hands-on encounters with friendly animals
- Big Play facilities inside and out (under cover)
Our attraction is one of the original farm parks in the Midlands. We are much loved for our friendly atmosphere and our staff work hard to make visitors feel welcome. We’ve been open for over 35 years so we often meet parents who’ve visited us as children, or older visitors who brought their own children and are now visiting with their grandchildren. Although much has changed from the early days, our farm is still run by the same family, keeping the personal touch that makes every visit one to treasure.
We’ve made our farm almost 100% weather proof … most of it is under cover and the paths are all good. Wellies are fun but not essential!
The Big Play Barn is our newer attraction located right next to the farm. It’s a huge purpose built play-barn which includes a giant, under cover bouncy pillow as well as lots of slides, clamber challenges and rope walkways. There are different play areas for specific ages making play safe as well as fun. The Big Play Barn has its own admission charge and can be visited separately to a day out on the farm; however most visitors choose to pay a small upgrade which gains them access to both the farm and the play barn.
Both attractions have their own café serving home-made dishes such as lasagne and chilli as well as children’s meals. Booking not required.
Ideal for children aged 1 to 10 years old. We charge from 12 months.
