Overview

There’s farmyard fun for the whole family at Longdown Activity Farm. Join in with a daily schedule of hands-on activities such as bottle-feeding kid goats and calves, duck feeding, and the new Animal Encounter Barn where visitors can hold chicks and meet a variety of friendly animals - sometimes even kunekune piglets. There are lots of larger friendly farm animals to meet and plenty of indoor and outdoor play equipment too including the new Straw Den and Trampoline Barn. When ground conditions allow, don't miss the fabulous bumpy tractor and trailer ride! There’s no hidden extra charges for our activities. Don’t miss the Longdown Farm Shop for delicious locally sourced produce.

My daughter loved this farm - she could feed the animals, hold all the smaller animals and I think her favourite part was the tractor ride which we had to do a few times. The tea room was a let down. There was limited options...More
