Owner description: 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.

We spent the day at the farm, and although us grown ups found it a bit of a strange collection of attractions ( Victorian school room, welsh guards exhibition, farm, bouncy castle) the children really enjoyed it all- especially the pig racing and the milking of the animals. We also got to carve a pumpkin as it is Halloween. Take... More

Hi Andrea M Thank you very much for your review it is great to hear the children enjoyed the day. I suppose in many ways our diverse attractions can be looked at as a strange mix although we receive many excellent comments about all of the different attractions. Almost all of them are important parts of our educational offer for... More

We are season ticket holders and regular visitors to Park Hall Farm. As a family we always have a lovely time, whether we pop in for an hour or the whole day. Plenty to keep children entertained of all ages and with regular changes to activities depending on the season, there is always something new to explore!

Park Hall is like one giant children's play area with a few animals. Lots of different play equipment dotted around the site both inside and out. The rides are free (including the tractor ride) with exception to the Barrel Ride (£1 each) and the Drive School (£2.50 for two laps). The interactive entertainment included milking cows, holding rabbits and grooming... More

Took my 10 year old here today, really was a lovely day out. Very pleasant staff, lots to see and do. The Welsh Guards museum was very interesting, lovely chap in there, he had some excellent stories to tell, I'd have liked to have spent a lot longer in there, but my son was itching to get going. The landrovers... More

There's enough to do and see for children up to about 12. Plenty of indoor activities for horrible days, but with wellies and waterproofs who cares?
