Overview
More
Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm is in the middle of the beautiful county of Suffolk in Eastern England and is a small livestock farm breeding farm animals that were once common but are now very rare. It's a great time to bring your whole family to the farm to meet the piglets, feed the goats and let the kids loose in the play area whilst you settle into the calm surroundings with a piece of homemade cake or a cream tea.

Really enjoyed our visit yesterday and would love to come back again. Reasonably priced and a little gem that's just on our doorstep! Loved seeing the range of animals especially the tiny piglets!

We come every year to see the lambs during feb half term. Kids always enjoy it but there's not a great deal to do other than lamb cuddling. Bit pricey for what they offer.More

I'm afraid due to the livestock on the farm, we are unable to allow dogs to visit.
