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.

Park Hall Farm is an excellent place! There is something different to see/do each time you visit! The activities change with the seasons - making it an ideal place to have a season ticket for. All the staff are helpful and caring towards visiting children and their families and the animals which they are caring for. There is something to... More

A great day out to take your children to and meet up with friends. Take a packed lunch or treat yourself to something from the cafe. There are indoor and outdoor play areas, so great if the weather turns nasty. A fun place to go.

What a fantastic place to go! Yes - you need your wellies but this place is so hands on. Milk a cow, feed a lamb, stroke rabbits, indoor/outdoor play areas, pig racing, tractor ride. Loved it. The family who owns this have put a lot of work and thought into this - well done! The cafe was also great value.... More

Very sad to write this review as we were so looking forward to our day out. We thoroughly enjoyed feeding the lambs and looking at the rabbits and horses. We were moving onto the chickens and my son (22 months) was having a good time splashing in the puddles. I was taking a picture and within a second he'd dashed... More

The animals, the staff and the location is gorgeous! Nestled in the country surrounded by fields it's very peaceful. There's always something to see or do here, it's great for kids. It's a shame nowadays that children are so absorbed in technology so this is a place where they can get back in touch with nature again. We went in... More

Easy to find, lots to do even on wet days. We bought a membership for the year which was good value. Cafe could be improved as its a bit expensive and very busy, hence the 4 stars rather than 5.

We have a season ticket for park hall farm and use it extensively. It's great for just a quick hour visit or we can spend all day here.

After visiting other venues to see Father Christmas and having terrible experiences, mainly long long queues and not much attention to detail lousy presents.
