Details

A day of adventure awaits at the National Forest Adventure Farm, whatever the weather. You can meet and feed the animals, explore the outdoor Funfield and have fun in the huge indoor play area.

Meet a host of farm animals including pigs, sheep, cows and goats. In the spring you can also bottle feed our lambs. You can cuddle a rabbit or guinea pig and see our more unusual animals such as alpaca, reindeer and chipmunks. We also have daily animal activities including pony grooming, milking demonstrations and egg collecting.

The huge Funfield features a range of have a go activities including Go-Karts, assault course, mini golf, jumping pillows and the JCB Big Dig Zone with sit on JCBs, sand pit and traversing wall . Why not take a tractor and trailer ride around the farm and look out for the scarecrows?

The 3000m² indoor playbarn features a huge soft play area with demon drop slides. There’s an under 5’s area with a ball pit and giant Lego construction zone.

In the summer, the Farm is home to a huge 10 acre maize maze. So take on the challenge of 3 miles of pathways, bridges and viewing towers.

Enjoy eating out or picnicking at one of our landscaped areas on sunny days, or in our airy 120-seat restaurant.
