Overview

Church Farm, Stow Bardolph are all set for another exciting year, packed with fun events and activities for the whole family. This is a fantastic day out with plenty to do, whatever the weather!Come and meet all our rare breed animals, who are all eager for a bit of fuss and attention. Walk about in the petting pens with our tamest residents. Wander along to our Animal Encounter sessions, and learn more about the animals from our friendly staff, whilst getting to hold and pet some of them. There are usually baby animals to see, starting with lambing from Feb through to May, regular litters of piglets and the infamous, naughty baby goats, who cause great hilarity with their antics.The adventure playground is a must for all our younger visitors, with trampolines, climbing frames and football pitch, through to ride on tractors and our enormous undercover sand pit and straw barn, where children can jump and play in the straw bales - always a favourite.For those who want to sit back and relax, why not take a tractor tour of Church Farm, or take advantage of our comfortable sofas in the indoor Treehouse play area. Let the children run around while you enjoy a tea or coffee, and maybe even a slice of homemade cake! We have a new area in the Treehouse, especially for our youngest visitors.There is a good selection of lunches, brunches and even cream teas available in our lovely tearoom, with plenty of choice to suit every appetite and budget. A large undercover area is also available, if you decide to bring a picnic. Our gift shop stocks a wide variety of souvenirs and fabulous gifts for the whole family.

This is a lovely place. There are lots of animals to see and always enough 'hands-on' ones with sheep, goats, rabbits and little pigs around the farm to stroke and pet. Lambing season is something else with maternity wards and nurseries set up and regular...More

Yes, we have lots of out door picnic areas, some undercover. Or you can picnic around the play areas, just bring a blanket.
