Barleylands Farm Park & Village
Packed with excitement, there's so much to do at Barleylands Farm Park and Village whatever the weather.
At the Farm Park, say hello to farmyard friends big and small, meet birds of prey, visit the South East's largest display collection of reptiles, feed the animals in the indoor animal barn and take a walk through the beautiful aviary. Animal activities, including lamb bottle feeding, are held daily and change with the seasons.
There is plenty of fun and adventure to be had, with indoor and outdoor play. Run wild in the indoor play barn, sand pit, ball blasting arena and Discovery Barn, where you can learn all about rural farming from times gone by. Outdoors, there's an enormous bouncy pillow, zip wire, swings and play frames. Children can even ride on mini tractors, zooming around the farm before jumping aboard a real tractor and trailer for a bumpy ride!
The Village is located just next door - it's a great place to shop for unusual handmade gifts and to see crafters in action. Whilst visiting make sure you stop by the Tiptree Tea Room and CafÃ©. Popular with all visitors the tea room serves everything from snacks to light lunches and even delicious Afternoon Tea's!
Extra special activities are held every school holiday. Barleylands is easily accessible and has a large paved, free car park.
