Indoor Play Barn
Watch little ones slide, climb, swing and crawl through the 2 storey equipment in our Soft Play Barn. With a separate double storey area for under 5’s you can relax knowing the tiny tots have a safe space of their own to explore.
Racing and pedalling one of our child’s John Deere or New Holland tractors round the indoor track in our Play Barn is always a firm favourite with the children.
The ‘Fodder Spot’ is our cafe in the Play Barn. It’s open all year round and serves hot and cold drinks, ice creams, cakes, freshly baked Belgian Waffles and Sandwiches, Panini’s and Oven Baked Jacket Potatoes.
Indoor Activity Centre
Play, dig and excavate in our giant Sand Play Room
Swing, climb, slide and roll round our indoor Swing Barn full of straw
Toddlers can crawl, climb and safely tumble around our huge Toddler Play Room with cushioned safety flooring and you can chill on our comfy sofas
When you take a stroll around our farm, keep your eyes peeled for charming carved wooden characters from a very popular children’s book! Which character will you spot first? Will they have ‘purple prickles’ or will you find the mouse, or snake first? A sure place to start your search for a naughty fox is near our chicken pen, head over to our Falconry Centre where naturally you’ll spot a very different kind of owl.
Children love bouncing and giggling away the hours on our fabulous Jumping Pillows, and with one pillow just for under 5’s to enjoy you can relax knowing older children are safely bouncing on the larger pillow right next door.
Older children (6+) can climb, slide and swing their way around our massive outdoor Woodland Play Tower area
The Tattershall Peaks Climbing Wall, is a Challenge children of all ages love to take on. Will they make it all the way to the finish? We really don’t mind, as long as everyone is having lots of fun!
Exploring the adventure trim trail, or zooming down our 35m Zip Wire – Children love to explore all of our outdoor play!
Everyone (even the grown ups) enjoy banging, crashing and ‘Boom Whacking’ their way around our sensory music area, and Splat the Rat, Coits, Toss the Ball and our Face Wall are all firm favourites too!
Younger children love the Big Red Tractor in our outdoor Toddler Play Area too.
Animal Fun – Get up close and get involved
Feed our farm animals as you stroll round the barn or beautiful Animal Trail where they live
Get up close to some rare and unusual breeds like our Lincoln Long wool, Kerry Hill and Hampshire Sheep, and say hello to our friendly Highland Cows. Watch our cheeky goats climb over the bridged and platforms that form ‘Billy Goat’s Gaff’
Watch as our keepers care for our animals, you’ll see them on their way round the farm -feeding and mucking out as they go. You can’t work in our Animal Care team without being passionate about animals, so please feel free to stop them and ask any questions you may have, they will ALWAY be happy to chat.
