It’s been a busy week at work and you’ve just spent the last few hours in the car with the kids asking if you’re nearly there yet. Finally you’ve arrived, you’ve pitched your tent or sited your tourer and just as you sit down to enjoy your first cup of tea the kids want to know where you’re going to take them!

Well fear not! We have done the hard work and compiled a few suggestions for you…

Hardys Animal Farm

Whatever the weather this Half Term, there is plenty to keep the whole family entertained at Hardys Animal Farm! With a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, coupled with different animals for you to meet, feed and make friends with, it really is a great day out for the whole family.

Learn about modern farming and interact with a whole host of different animals in a safe and fun environment, have a game of Pitchfork and Putt, and let the kids run off some steam in Haystacks Play Barn or on the ginormous outdoor Adventure Play Tower.

The Farm is open daily over Half Term from 10am until 5pm (last admission 4pm). Tickets can be bought at 20% off with the voucher on your check-in receipt. They close their doors on the 1st November for the winter season, so make sure you pay them a visit before your holiday ends!
