Description: A day of adventure awaits at the National Forest Adventure Farm, whatever...
A day of adventure awaits at the National Forest Adventure Farm, whatever the weather. You can meet and feed the animals, explore the outdoor Funfield and have fun in the huge indoor play area. Meet a host of farm animals including pigs, sheep, cows and goats. In the spring and summer you can also bottle feed our lambs. You can cuddle a rabbit or guinea pig and see our more unusual animals such as alpaca, reindeer and chipmunks. We also have daily animal activities including pony grooming, milking demonstrations and egg collecting. The huge Funfield features a range of have a go activities including Go-Karts, assault course, mini golf, jumping pillow and in the summer the Water Splash Out. Why not take a tractor and trailer ride around the farm and look out for the scarecrows? The 3000m² indoor playbarn features a huge soft play area with demon drop slides. There's an under 5's area with a ball pit and giant Lego construction zone. Enjoy eating out or picnicking at one of our landscaped areas on sunny days, or in our airy 120-seat restaurant. In the summer, the Farm is home to a huge 10 acre maize maze. So take on the challenge of 3 miles of pathways, bridges and viewing towers.

We were on hols in the area with our two kids 5 and 2. The maize took us 1hr 45mins with drinks hut in the middle, fantastic trail to do set around the book the scarecrows wedding. Had lunch then on to see the animals and bouncy pillows, bouncy castle, go karts, tractor ride. A full day at reasonable prices!

Lots to do outside and in. A indoor play area, lots of animals to see and feed inside and out. A tractor ride around the farm. A mini ride driven by one of the staff. Big maize and small maize to get lost in. Sand pits, bouncing castle, go karts, gift shop and restaurant.

Absolutely great evening out for Halloween...took my 13 year old niece and we walked round the different attractions holding hands! The actors were great, getting up close and making strange faces and noises. My favourite was walking through the corn field maze, having to find our way out whilst being jumped upon by all sorts of sppoky characters! Will definitely... More

Great maze and water area, however day completely marred but total lack of staff ensuring safety on inflatables and no height restrictions meaning teenagers got on with under fives.
