Description:

A day of adventure awaits at the National Forest Adventure Farm, whatever...

A day of adventure awaits at the National Forest Adventure Farm, whatever the weather. You can meet and feed the animals, explore the outdoor Funfield and have fun in the huge indoor play area.

Meet a host of farm animals including pigs, sheep, cows and goats. In the spring and summer you can also bottle feed our lambs. You can cuddle a rabbit or guinea pig and see our more unusual animals such as alpaca, reindeer and chipmunks. We also have daily animal activities including pony grooming, milking demonstrations and egg collecting.

The huge Funfield features a range of have a go activities including Go-Karts, assault course, mini golf, jumping pillow and in the summer the Water Splash Out. Why not take a tractor and trailer ride around the farm and look out for the scarecrows?

The 3000m² indoor playbarn features a huge soft play area with demon drop slides. There's an under 5's area with a ball pit and giant Lego construction zone.

Enjoy eating out or picnicking at one of our landscaped areas on sunny days, or in our airy 120-seat restaurant.

In the summer, the Farm is home to a huge 10 acre maize maze. So take on the challenge of 3 miles of pathways, bridges and viewing towers.

Visited again at the start of the Staffordshire/Derbyshire Easter school holidays and had another great day with 4, 5 and 9 year old.

We have visited today and have thoroughly enjoyed our day! I have been once before in Feb and it seemed expensive for a couple of hours in a soft play and a few animals, but when the weather is better the place really comes alive. We managed to spend a full day (10-4) here and there was lots that we... More

Rachel, we will do our best! It has been a conscious decision to try and include the vast majority of activities in the farm admission price, so there are no nasty surprises. We will pass your kind comments on to Will who is in charge of the animal barn. We'll look forward to seeing you soon - hopefully as a... More

We took our 3 almost 4 year old Grandson for an Easter treat. What a wonderful place to visit.. We had booked online in advance and saved 10%. For just under £11 pounds each it was great value for money. We spent 6 hours there and wasn't disappointed at all. Our Grandson had a fantastic time. He got to feed... More

Lynn, We're very pleased to learn that your grandson really enjoyed his Easter outing. I'm sure that a big part of that would have been having a day out with his grandparents - a lovely treat.

Our son loves it here, so much so that this is the second year we've got an annual pass and the only place where we don't feel like we've "done it all" and will still renew our pass again this year.
