Capital tots thoughts:

This is a lovely close-to-London farm. It is small and perfectly formed so you haven’t got to trek miles to get from the duck show to the pig enclosure or the adventure playground. There is absolutely loads to do, much of which will appeal to younger children as well as slightly older ones.

The adventure playground is top-notch with lots of different areas for children to explore and there is also an indoor play-barn with a safe area for tiny ones. For slightly older children there are trampolines, an inflatable pillow and pony rides. I went with a 6 month old, a 2 year old and 4 year old and they all had a brilliant day.

The farm area is undercover and quite small so it’s easy to navigate, they have lots of hands-on activities such as holding bunny rabbits, looking at chickens, tractor and trailer rides, pig racing, goat milking – just about everything you could ask for at a farm.


Perfectly adequate cafe and picnic area if you bring your own lunch - microwaves to heat up food for babies.
