About
Lee Valley Park Farms in Waltham Abbey, Essex are just the best kind of fun when it comes to a great value family day out.There are cuddly sheep, giant rabbits, rare breed pigs, long-necked llamas and a loveable meerkat family to meet.You can hit the heights on the giant bouncy pillow, scale the Spider Tower or whizz down the slopes on our fantastic toboggan run. The lttle ones love riding on the combine harvester in Piglet's Paradise.Then take a short trip on a tractor trailer to our working dairy farm, where you'll meet the cows and learn all about life on a real farm.

Huge disappointment, hardly any animals and after an hour and a half of waiting for 2 burgers we asked for a refund. Took email address, no refund as of yet. As for covid measures, non existent. Only upside was the weather.

Excellent day out

EXCELLENT FARM - our first visit to the farm today with my young family and we are SO PLEASED we went.

All the staff were exceptional and are a credit to the farm.

Wonderful food and great value too. Lovely gift shop, great selection.

Felt very COVID safe as there are signs everywhere telling you to keep apart, hand washing stations everywhere, gel sanitisers everywhere and masks had to be worn in all indoor areas.

The kids loved seeing all the lovely animals (see photos) after lockdown it was great being in contact with nature again.

The Dino event was amazing and it was obvious that a lot of hard work went into the event.

After this visit we will definitely be visiting again. WELL DONE LEE VALLEY FARM

I visited the farm with my daughters and grandchildren on Thursday what a disappointment it was !!! No animals well not nearly as many before covid. No aces to the cows and nothing to advertise this fact. Hugely disappointed children.
The farm was packed clearly no covid measures in place. Disgusting
The overflow car park was dangerous - just a money making farm !!!!!
Only 1 toilet facility in the farm part.

Disappointed
May 2021 • Family
Used to love this farm, however it has changed so much. Not sure if it's down to covid or change of management. Barely any animals to see, no sheep (that I could see) and you can't go to the dairy farm anymore as it is now a separate farm. Seeing the cows was the best bit, can't do that now.
Staff were really friendly and polite. It was spacious enough to socially distance from other visitor's. Such a shame its changed. Maybe by next year there will be more to see

Family day
Apr 2021 • Family
The farm is lovely, the only thing I was unhappy about is that they charged us an entry fee for our 6 month old, who was unable to use any of the facilities. He spent all his time in the buggy asleep and even if he had been awake, there was nothing for him to do at his age, he can’t walk yet! I’m happy to pay for a 2 year old, but to charge a for a 6 month old baby is terrible and definitely not worth the fee!

Lovely day out
Feb 2020 • Family
We've been in numerous trips to this farm and it never disappoints. Even in the wettest February on record we still lived our day out at this farm, it helped that admission prices were reduced sure to the water logged fields. Goats, pigs, sheep, alpacas, rabbits, Guinea pigs, rats, mice, birds of prey I could go on! Staff are very friendly and helpful. There's a nice little cafe. When the rain got just too bad to splash around in we headed to the soft play area. A great day out!

good day out in summer
Feb 2020
we have an annual pass for the farm which is then good value you can even pop in on a grotty day and use the soft play area but if I was paying £13 each for a family I would be very disappointed. there are not a lot of animals. On a nice day you can take a picnic ( or buy food there) and stay for hours walking around the fields, playing in the sandpit,playground and soft play making it a much better value day out.you can even take a tractor ride the the dairy farm to see the cows being milked.........a very smelly experience. Good for small children but older ones would probably be bored after one visit

Terrible communication
Nov 2019 • Family
Drove over an hour to the farm on a Sunday, on website states they were open everyday 7 days a week. Got to the Car park, parked, got bags coats all ready and walked around the corner to entrance to find a large gate with a sign on stating they are closed and re-opening in feb 2020 (which you cannot see from car park and also no signs on the drive as your driving in stating closure. Children were very upset. We weren’t the only ones, there was about 10 other cars unpacking and sorting children out to be told by us it was closed. Won’t be trying to visit again.

Day out with kids
Nov 2019 • Family
Found ourselves at Lea Valley Park Farm over the last Halloween Weekend.
For £10 per person and with carers going free, also a group discount for over 7 people, we thought this would be ideal.
There were 4 adults and 4 children in total on a rather grim, cold, grey and let's face it Winter weather.
There was a lovely cafe on entrance serving hot and cold food and drinks.
We were given a map and off we went.
Loads of farm animals to see and smell!
You can feed them too.
A soft play barn, heated with soft play for little ones and not so little ones too.
Various outdoor activities including a Alpine slope, basically a dry ski slope you can slide down on a large rubber tyre, this was my favourite.
There was a lovely birds of prey show, with very well informed staff.
Also a creepy critter section with reptiles and other creatures.
And don't forget the meercats.
Tad too cold to stay too long, but we'll worth a visit when a bit warmer.

Love this place
Sep 2019 • Family
Such a lovely farm, lots to entertain young kids, staff friendly, cafe provides yummy food and very reasonably priced, definitely recommend. I have a 3 and 5 year old and been going for the last four years. Always improving the place and put on great events. Had a party there too and that was brilliant!
