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.

Went here for the first time today. When we first arrived we were a little confused as it just looked like a little farmyard, however this was a real lesson in never judge a book by its cover! It has the most amazing rare breed pigs and sheep, lovely to see and lovely to be able to feed by hand... More

This is a super place to introduce little ones to farm animals. Our 18 month old grand daughter was captivated by the baby goats in particular which wander freely. There are plenty of animals to see and it is possible to get very close to many of them. We all enjoyed feeding the animals with the food provided by the... More

This is one of my favourite places to visit. I love seeing all of the animals & interacting with them. Lambing season is fab as you can hold, cuddle & bottle feed lambs. It's lovely for a walk around the fields & along the river. Take your wellies if it's been raining as it can get very muddy!

We took our 2 and 1/2 years old Grandson there and he had a whale of a time seeing and touching the animals. It is an ideal place for youngsters of all ages. I think Grandad enjoyed it as much as little Daniel.

This place is excellent, in a beautiful spot .. When you first enter it appears really tiny, but once you walk off around the fields to see the animals it is amazing and very well run . . great place to take the kids and a picnic. .

Our little one loved feeding the animals and we enjoyed the walk around the fields seeing the different animas in paddocks along the way - fortunately the weather was dry. The whole place did seem on a bit on the budget side though and thought it could do with some money being spent on maintaining it. It is a working... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and we will certainly take your feedback on board. We are first and foremost a working farm, so not a farm park which is designed to be a tourist attraction, like some of our neighbours. We like to think we offer an authentic farm experience, instead of a commercialised... More

Second time this year granddaughter loves it, reminds me of what I wish I had, used to work on a farm and keep my own pigs, chickens, bantams and rabbits. A good day out

I came here with my 2 year old daughter and another family of 2 adults + 2 children. We had a lovely day, children were admitted free and also given a free bag of animal feed which was a bonus. It's so fantastic walking around a working farm, it's more realistic for the children. The staff are very pleasant and... More

It was very relaxed and the children were able to have three turns at holding a lamb. They loved it and said it bbc was better than a zoo!
