A Visit to National Forest Adventure Farm

Adventures/ day out/ local review

On Easter Sunday we went to the National Forest Adventure Farm for the day. We had a wonderful day out, there was so much to do. The Easter Eggstravaganza which runs until 10th April is fabulous! The kids loved the treasure hunt and their trip through the woods to visit the Easter bunny in his house 🙂

This time of year is such a perfect time to visit a farm as there is always so much to see and do. I love to see all the baby animals especially the piggies and the lambs 🙂

The baby lambs are my favourite.

This Easter you can enjoy all of these extra activities…

Easter Eggspress Tractor and Trailer Ride – All aboard the extended tractor and trailer ride to take you on a journey up to Bunny Woods to find the  Easter Bunny.

Woodland Walk Animal Trail – When the Easter Eggspress drops you off at the woods, follow the path to the Easter Bunny. On the way there are 6 woodland creatures to find.

We LOVED Crafty Fox!! He seriously needs a pay rise ;)

Lamb Feeding – Team up to feed our hungry lambs.

Your best squirrel faces please 😉

We also enjoyed an egg hunt, where we had to find all the eggs hidden around the farm. All the eggs had a letter and a clue on them to help us find the next one. Once we had found all the eggs we had to unscramble them to make a word. You can then collect some sweeties when you hand in your completed form to the shop.

We managed to find all ten eggs.

Can you work out what the word is?

As well as all the Easter fun there is still an awful lot to do there, we didn’t manage to do everything whilst we were there but we squeezed in an awful lot. The facilities are fantastic, we took a picnic and they have a lovely large picnic area which is undercover but they also have a 120 seat restaurant, selling locally sourced and home-produced snacks and meals. I noticed lots of places to picnic outdoors on sunny days too!

The inflatable JCB digger was Bugs favourite thing to do and would have stayed on it all day if he could!

Of course the huge indoor play barn was a huge hit too, especially because Mummy & daddy could go down the slides!! You wouldn’t catch me on that red demon drop one though. It was nice to be able to sit and enjoy a coffee in the restaurant (which over looks this play area) while the kids burnt off some Easter egg energy.

The National Forest Adventure Farm is £10.95 admission per person during peak times and is well worth the money. If you buy tickets online you can save 10% 🙂 If you haven’t visited before then I would highly recommend it. Luckily we only live about 30  minutes away so we will definitely be back for more farm fun soon.

* We received free entry into the farm for the purpose of this review.

    That slide alone would have been enough to tempt my two into a visit – the rest would have all just been an added bonus 😉

    I love our local activity farm, as do the kids. That JCB digger bouncy castle would be a hit with mine and I think we would all enjoy the slide
