Farmyard Fun for the Family, Down at the Farm
From Summer the Donkey, to the newborn lambs, Zena the python, George the pig or bunnies and chicks, theres always lots of animals to stroke and pet in the Farmyard.
We have a variety of farm and zoo licensed animals on the farm. We have a small zoo animal collection which is the result of various donations from over the years. All of our zoo animals have been bred in captivity and are not wild, Learn more about them all here http://downatthefarm.co.uk/animals/
We have a daily timetable of animal activities at Down at the Farm which allows visitors to get up close to our animals. Activities can change according to the season and weather and are available at specific times of the day. Check our Facebook page for our daily timetable.

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!
