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.

An excellent day out with the kiddies. Stayed for nearly 4 hours and the time went so fast. Feeding the lambs enthralled the children. We treated our grandchildren to a £55 membership each which enables them visit anytime they want. When we ask if they want to go to the farm, they always say yes. It's fantastic at the farm... More

Such a great day out, so much for the kids to do even on a wet half term day. Indoor play area proved very popular along with the remote controlled tractors. Venturing out into the rain and into the safety of the barn, the kids watched chicks emerging from eggs as well as feeding the baby lambs, my education continued... More

Viv, glad your family had another great day here - the weather has been a little murky this week, it's true, but as most of our activities are inside at this time of year you can still make a good, full day of it. We look forward to seeing you again soon. kind regards, Cathy More

We visited today and found it very expensive for what was there. It came to nearly £24 for two adults. Most of the animals were not out on the fields and therefore we couldn't see them, this disappointed up. The cafe if so over expensive also! The staff are lovely but overcharging because it's half term isn't right! Especially when... More

Chloe, thank you for taking the time to review the farm on TripAdvisor. We have endeavoured to provide a full day out for just under £12 per person (nothing for children under 2). Cost is a subjective thing, but in terms of comparison to a game of bowls or a film, we do feel that we compare very favourably, as... More

I had been to the farm before in the Summer and it was a great day and good value for money. Although we enjoyed the visit today it was not worth the peak price that we had to pay because it is half-term! There were very few activities available, the fields where the animals usually are were empty. I appreciate... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the farm on TripAdvisor. We are pleased your granddaughter enjoyed feeding the lambs this week. You appear to have missed a whole range of activities available in our internal Events barn for "Help the Farmer" week - the children can make a scarecrow, plant a seed, mend a fence, repair a tractor...

Had a great day here with hubby and 3year old grandson. It was a cold one but we were well wrapped up and had just as much fun outside as in, in the indoor play area. Very reasonably priced too

The children really enjoyed their day at National Forest Adventure Farm but as we have six grandchildren it is a very expensive day out.

Dear Linda, We're pleased that you all enjoyed your visit to the farm. It is always worth keeping an eye on the discount site VoucherCloud during off peak times, as quite often we have 2 for 1 or 50% off deals advertised through here. that way, you could all come more often! We look forward to seeing you again soon.... More

I have purchased annual membership previously at Drayton Manor and Twycross Zoo by paying the normal entrance fee on the day of visit and then deciding to upgrade later on the same day (once I had a taste of what the place was like and whether it was suitable for me). In that situation I have then paid the difference... More
