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.

We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit to us. We were taken aback with how busy we were during our Easter Speggtacular event, hence the normally very adequate provision of picnic tables may not have been enough on this occasion. We...More

Thank you for your comments, this certainly doesn't sound like our usual farm experience and we are investigating to find out what happened. Thank you for drawing this to our attention.

This place is friendly and cheap to get in, but won't full much more than 90 minutes realistically. We cuddled lambs which my kids loved, and there is a basic play area and, if you walk 10 mins along the river, a pretty coo rope...More

Thanks for visiting and for your review! Did you miss our other close up animal encounters? They include our Bunny Barn, pig and goat grooming. You can also feed all our animals, the cows especially have a feeding trick for visitors!

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