Now you have seen the animals, it is time to let off some steam! Have great fun playing in the different areas of the farm.

Toy Tractors

Pretend to be a farmer and have a drive around on one of our toy tractors. Avoid bumping into the tractor tyres then you don’t spill anything you might be pulling in your trailer. We have yellow, red, green and blue tractors and some little trikes for the smaller children. Let children take their pick and use their imagination.

Outdoor Play Area

We have some large equipment for over 4’s and some smaller equipment for the younger ones. The “Kidbine” is fantastic, a pretend combine harvester with some added features from the real ones. A slide and a tunnel! Pretend to drive the combine, or whizz down the slide – have a go you are sure to have fun. The assault course type equipment is popular with the adults too, try not to fall off the stepping logs! And if you are brave enough, have go down our tall curly slide, that’s if you can climb the cargo net to get there!

Please note this activity will not be available in wet weather.
