Visit Park Hall Countryside Experience, the amazing National award winning farm park with lots of animal fun, action and adventure for the kids. There are regular hands-on animal activities, and each day there is a spectacular pig racing event, even try your hand at milking a cow! At Park Hall the kids can play till they’re worn out, try out the two massive indoor play barns with a new ‘Demon Drop Slide’ and bouncy castles. Discover the great outdoors where there are adventure courses, woodland walks and a picturesque lake. Kids can even ‘learn to drive’ in electric cars or landrovers. If you love science checkout the Science Illusion Zone. There’s a Victorian School, Iron Age Roundhouse and Welsh Guards Museum too. A great day out for all the family.

Visited for the first time today with my 18 month old, on the recommendation of friends. We loved it! Everything ran smoothly and, whilst the place was busy, we managed to enjoy every activity we took part in. The animals seemed happy and well cared for and my daughter loved getting the chance to groom, feed or stroke a variety... More

Thank you very much for the review. So pleased your daughter enjoyed the interactive activities with the animals which we run at regular intervals throughout the day, it's great to be introduced to animals at an early age. Look forward to your next visit More

Had a lovely day out with the grandchildren with everything from bouncy castles, pig racing, play parks/barns and stroking small animals. The additional Easter egg hunt and trail made this visit even more special and the icing on the cake fot the 4 year old grandchildrenwas seeing the Lambs being fed.

So glad you had a lovely day out, lamb feeding is always a great attraction, hope you managed to have a go too! Always trying to offer extra seasonal events, we've got 'Wacky Races' on at May Half Term, you could have a go at the 'Egg and Spoon' race. Many thanks for the review More

Our Family love visiting Park Hall Farm, so much so that since we're relatively local we've taken out membership. It's great value for money and we often pop for a couple of hours at the weekend. There is a great variety of activities both inside and out, and they've added even more in the last year. The zipwire and go-kart... More

Hi 060804 We are absolutely astonished anyone can write a review let alone for it to be published WITHOUT even entering the premises. If you had entered you would have learnt that we have lots of activities for the whole family to enjoy for the admission price as has been noted by many reviewers on this site. As for the... More
