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.

Yes, what a fantastic place to take the family, well I'm 50 this year and I really enjoyed holding the lambs, the staff are very friendly and the lambs are SO cute. I had a walk around the rest of the farm including the shop, I really enjoyed the book stalls as well as the lambs.

I took my ten month old son to the farm a few weeks ago and he loved it. He was able to get really close to the animals and we had a lovely walk around. It is quite expensive for an adult (£7.--) but it's a lovely little place and feels much more genuine than Jimmys farm, and quieter than... More

Today my 6 year old daughter had her birthday party at the farm and we were delighted with the way it was organised. Amber, the party organiser stayed with us throughout and was informative, kind and so helpful. The whole afternoon was a joy and the party food was very good quality with proper ham and cheese, fresh products and... More

Visited the farm during the week and have to say was not impressed, the majority of footpaths were all over grown with loads of sting a nettles which made pushing a double buggy near impossible, my two young children got stung quite a few times which was very upsetting for them. It scared the life out of me that the... More

Thank you for your review and for the kind comments about our team. You are absolutely right about the riverside path, this is our top priority to resolve at the moment, which we are working on right now. Unfortunately we have experienced delays in attending to this issue, due to problems with machinery which have now been resolved. We're sorry... More

An interesting collection of less common domestic animal breeds. Many kids and a calf were present for the "oh cute" factor. The alpaca would benefit from having the toe nails clipped and the brown Huacaya its lower teeth trimmed. Cafe pleasant. Staff friendly.

Thank you for your review and kind comments. Good observation regarding feet and teeth! Our alpacas were due to have their feet trimmed at the time of your visit, this has now been completed. Teeth are routinely attended to when we shear. Unfortunately shearing has been delayed due to our shearer being unwell, but this will be completed very shortly.... More

I took four teenagers to this farm park and they absolutely loved it .. (I hadn't taken them to a farm since they were little).. It was filling to see them off their screens and having such a great time. One of my sons has since enquired about volunteering. A great time had by all.

This farm has a load of potential, with a decent variety of animals and the opportunity to hold lambs. When we went there was also a BBQ which looked amazing. Sadly the place seems ill equipped to deal with the amount of people attending. The seating in the cafe, and in the picnic area really is inadequate. Some areas also... More

Thanks for your review. As you mention our Bunny Barn I'm assuming you visited us during our Easter Speggtacular event which is our busiest weekend and consequently there are a lot more people on the farm than normal. Unfortunately we only have a finite amount of space but we will certainly take your comments on board and review the placement... More

Went for an afternoon out with children (5 & 7y old) and granny. Although our side was grey and bleak, the entrance to the farm started with a packed playground and picnic area and great smell of the barbecue. The entrance fee is not cheap (£3 for child, £7 for an adult) but you get full day of farm activities... More
