This beautiful 550-acre farm is a beacon for nature lovers and agriculturalists. It was established in 1964 to re-state the link between town and country, people and agriculture, and has been educating visitors about farming ever since.Children will adore the farm, with rare breeds of horses, sheep, pigs, goats, peacocks, chickens and donkeys. There is plenty for kids to do: the gargantuan indoor play barn, den building, tractor rides, giant sandpit and the Sacrewell Trec which incorporates all the natural obstacles found on a country walk.
The café is airy and flooded with light. Paninis, jacket potatoes, pasta bakes and shepherd’s pies made from locally farmed produce will replenish adults, while children can pick and mix their own lunches from a healthy selection of sandwiches, vegetable sticks and fruit. The farm shop alongside sells the best goodies from the farm and its neighbours. The shops and café are free to visit, and walking routes around the local countryside are ideal for stretching legs and exercising dogs.
