Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm is in the middle of the beautiful county of Suffolk in Eastern England and is a small livestock farm breeding farm animals that were once common but are now very rare.

It's a great time to bring your whole family to the farm to meet the piglets, feed the goats and let the kids loose in the play area whilst you settle into the calm surroundings with a piece of homemade cake or a cream tea.

My husband and i took our 6 yr old grandaughter it was a lovely sunny day and had fun feeding and stroking the animals. Slightly scary when our grandaughter disappeared.into the haystack. Great sighs of relief when she popped out the top! We are now looking forward to going back in spring to see the baby lambs

My husband and I adore Baylham Farm. It's a fantastic, simply run farm that provides fun for all ages. It's set in a gorgeous setting and you can enjoy a walk around the fields where the natural swimming pool runs, watching the geese and sheep. Stop off at the little coffee shop for a nice lunch (we had homemade on... More

The family and I went there for a trip out. One of those impulsive trips where we just upped and went. An 8 year old and a 10 year old + me and the wife. I did find it a little dull and perhaps it was too old for my kids. There wasn't much to do and there wasn't a... More

Thank you for leaving your comments, although we are surprised by your review. We are a working farm, so don't have a star attraction as per some of the tourist farms, but there is a huge amount to see and do. There are many 'hands on' animal encounters such as pig and goat grooming, being able to hand feed all... More

A delightful couple of hours. Lovely volunteers and simple enjoyment with and feeding the many breeds of animals. Plus a scary climb up the haystack.. Thoroughly enjoyed it as a granddad!

We visited with my one year old and compared to other farm trails we have done we thought this was a bit pricey for what they have to offer. There was no info saying why they were rare breeds and not as many animals as we thought. We paid £7 per adult to walk around a large loop. The baby... More

We're sorry to hear you were disappointed by your visit to us and we are especially surprised to hear you found little opportunity to interact. We offer a number of up-close animal encounters each day throughout the summer holidays, including grooming the goats and pigs, feeding the chickens, hunting for eggs and cuddles with our bunnies. Moreover, nearly all of... More

The car park is 400 yards away from the farm, however to entertain the children there is a balance beam for the kids to walk on, and the kids can play 'POOH sticks' (winnie the pooh game) where the 2 streams are. The farm itself has a designated picnic/play area and café. They offer daily animal encounters meeting rabbits, cows,... More

Me and my son have visited a lot of farms and this is the only one he has talked about for weeks. Staff are very friendly and helpful, all the animals look well, cared for and plenty of space for them to live in. My son particularly loves the pigs and throwing food into their mouths. If anyone asks me... More

My wife and I took our two grandchildren here, yesterday, and all four of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. On entry, we were informed that feeding sheep and goats, by hand, was encouraged, and throwing food to other animals was fine.

My partner and I took our twins aged 1 to the farm and had a great time. Plenty for them to see and do, a baby goat even came and sat with us on the bench. Lots of hand washing facilities around.
