Looking for an interactive and educational farm to take the children to? Godstone Farm is the ideal destination for your family, all within easy reach of London, Sussex, Surrey, and Kent. Plus, if you and the kids aren't farm-ed out by the time you end your day at Godstone (who wouldn't want to spend more time cuddling little furry friends?), there are tons of other brilliant farms in the South East to explore, including Mead Open Farm and Roves Farm.
Situated in the town of Godstone near Oxted, Godstone Farm is one of the most popular farms for children in the South East. Over 500 animals await you, cared for with the highest standards of welfare, and there are picnic spots aplenty nestled in their 45 acres of land. The Dino Trail also awaits your Jurassic explorers, and they can further exhaust themselves in the outdoor adventure playground. Godstone Farm has activities galore to ensure the whole family are entertained during your visit.
There are a host of furry, fluffy friends ready to meet your family at Godstone Farm. Georgia the pony resides with the other horses, donkeys, and ponies, and the rabbits, chinchillas, ferrets, and degus are also waiting to welcome you. Your kids can join in on feeding the pigs, and can also buy animal feed for the sheep, goats, llamas, and cows in the gift shop. Learn all about alpacas, and say hello to a vibrant array of birds and poultry. Keep an eye out for the terrapins and tortoise on the pond walk! Whatever animals get your kids squealing with joy, Godstone Farm is sure to deliver. The Farm Trail is yet another opportunity to mingle with the animals, where your kids can meet a range of different animals, from llamas and alpacas to chinchillas and ponies. Make sure your family keep an eye out for any babies that may have appeared! You can also venture into the past on the Dino Trail where the kids can dig for dinosaur bones, discover fun facts, and pose with the farm's T-Rex if they're feeling brave!
Godstone Farm also offers exciting play areas for the children. The Indoor Playbarn has different sections for kids of different ages, including an under six play area full of ride-on toys to ensure even the youngest guests have the best experience. What a perfect way for them to burn off some excitement and energy. The outdoor adventure playground is bursting with fun activities for your kids, with sandpits, slides, climbing walls, and a zip line (wow). Wiglet's play village is another indoor play space where the kids can get involved in role-play like being a vet (the inevitable outcome of a day spent with animals).
