Barleylands Farm Centre
Barleylands Farm Park & Craft Village
Now celebrating its 30th year discover even more free range family fun at Barleylands. In the Farm Park get closer to farmyard friends and join in animal activities in the new indoor animal barn. Plus new for 2014 there's also daily bottle feeding and a huge indoor sandpit. There's so much to do indoors and out with soft play, birds of prey, the miniature railway, tractor & trailer rides, farming history in the discovery centre, the enormous jumping pillow and more. Plus look out for special events every school holiday! Next door the Craft Village has over sixty unique shops and studios to explore and you can see crafters in action. There is also an Italian Caffe serving homemade dishes and treats, regular Farmers Markets and even an annual Essex Country Show.

Naughty but nice Puddings!
Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
Over the weekends and holidays there are always times when your children need some chill out time, or to fill an hour or so, or they say the dreaded 5 letter word - BORED! Well, our KidsZone is here to rescue you and them from these moments. Full of puzzles, colouring in sheets and activities from films and programmes there is lots to keep busy!
