Today we visited Odds Farm Park, an award-winning children’s farm based near Beaconsfield. It only took us 20 minutes to drive there and we had an amazing day out.
As well as stacks of Indoor and Outdoor Play, there’s plenty of furry friends to meet and Animal Activities to take part in as well as Tractor & Trailer Rides, Sheep Racing and more! The weather was perfect for a day outside and the children had a great time.
As soon as we walked through the doors they spotted the ride on tractors so they spent ages on those before we headed in to meet the animals There were loads of sheep, goats, pigs and bunnies and we made sure to buy some bags of food so we could all feed the sheep and goats.
After we had all washed our hands we headed outside again. There were so many things to see and do Big Brother just ran from one thing to the next. The are some fantastic play areas which the children could have spent all day in.
We took advantage of one of the special Summer events by going to one of the Circus shows. This was our first time at one of these kind of shows and the children loved watching the different acts. Each performance is followed by a Circus Skills workshop which sounded fun for older children.
My two just wanted to be outside exploring. I was surprised how much there was but they loved the Fitness Trail, the go Karts, and the special Under 5’s play area.
By this time we had spent all morning so we decided to find some food for lunch and explore the Giant Indoor Playbarn. We obviously chose to eat at the same time as everyone else. We had to queue for a while and every table was taken. There were some overflow areas which were unfortunately closed so we just had to wait until a table became free. Our food was lovely (sandwiches for us and lunch boxes for the children) but the children just wanted to play in the Playbarn as soon as they saw it.
They spent an hour in the soft play area. There was a special area for Under 5’s which they loved although they did explore the larger soft play area too. It’s a lovely asset and I can imagine it is absolutely mobbed if the weather is not so good.
We finally dragged the children outside where they spent more time on the ride on toys, played in another play area and sand pit. We also went on a fun Tractor and Trailer ride all around the outside paddocks so we got really close to some of the animals.
By this stage we were all totally exhausted so sat down to enjoy a delicious ice-cream before heading home. Odds Farm Park is only 20 minutes for us so we will definitely be going again. I would thorough recommend it based on our experience of a great day out. We were also really happy to tick off Visit a farm from our list of #50things.
