Overview

You can expect the very best family day out at award winning, Mead Open Farm. With 30 acres of action packed play inside and out, as well as 'hands-on' farmyard fun, there's so much to discover. From cheeky goats, cute piglets and adorable sheep to fluffy rabbits, squeaky guinea pigs and friendly donkeys and ponies, meet plenty of animal friends. Plus, join in with daily animal activities and demonstrations including bottle feeding lambs, pony grooming, meet the animals and more! Outside, little daredevils will love the High Ropes Course which boasts a 20ft high Sky Trail challenge for the more adventurous and a smaller Sky Tykes course for younger explorers! Elsewhere, there's plenty more outdoor adventure to discover including Topsy Turvy Towers adventure play area, Giants Rock Climbing Wall, crazy golf, Digger Village and go-karts, as well as seasonal tractor and trailer rides. And, NEW from summer 2015, children will love the Jumping Pillows! Plus for 'iffy' weather days, Mead Open Farm boasts Shaggy's huge indoor PlayWorld. Packed with fun, children can brave giant drop slides, fire ball cannons, scramble through nets and more. And to ensure play for all, toddlers will love to explore Mini Moos imagination village. Hungry? Shaggy's PlayWorld Cafe is open every day, with a seasonal Hideout and Takeout Cafe and Paddock Kiosk. From February Lambing and the Easter Bunny Bonanza to Freaky Fortnight and Christmas Kingdom, visit the website for special events throughout 2015. Special group and educational packages are available as well as fun children's birthday parties. Mead Open Farm is just south of Leighton Buzzard in Bedfordshire. Use LU7 9JH for Sat navs.

Hi Kayleigh. You can't actually get in the pens with the goats, pigs, sheep etc; so it's stroking rather than cuddling these. Besides which, your shoes could end up extremely messy, not mention smelly! But there are rabbits... More
