As it is such a long way to the seaside from the Midlands, we have our own ‘Mini Beach’. A new sand play area arrived in 2016, complete with buckets, spades and a digger!!
We have a soft play area just for little ones, with a table tennis table to occupy older children. Don’t forget to challenge each other to a quick rally while you’re here!
Next to the Courtyard, younger visitors will adore the Wooden Log Play area. With balance beams, wobble board & traverse steps, they will want to go round the circuit again and again.
In the Courtyard, near to our Country Café, you’ll find the Toddler Playroom, with ride on toddler toys.
Deep in Fairytale Forest, alongside the den building, are scramble nets, climbing ropes and den building. This is an area for older children (and Mums and Dads!!). Beware; this area will get muddy in/after wet weather!! Another great way to have fun. Try your hand at making a den big enough for the whole family and then race to the top of the nets!
The farm's coffee shops serve freshly prepared refreshments throughout the day.

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!
