Review | Piglets Adventure Farm
We couldn’t resist heading to Piglets Adventure Farm in Towthorpe, York, for some family fun this February half term. It’s always a firm favourite day out for my 5-year old (and myself) as there’s so many indoor and outdoor attractions for the whole family, not to mention lovely food and coffee (always a winner for parents).
New indoor Bale Play Barn
But little did we know that the indoor Bale Play Barn has had a mini-makeover with three new slides, an extended ride-on tractor area and the addition of a new giant sandpit and more straw bale mountains, some of which include foam-pits.
It looks fantastic and the investment seems to have certainly paid off as prior to the make-over, the Barn appealed more to young children (probably from toddlers to age 5) but with the new larger slides and added activities, it easily appeals to older children as well as younger children now. We certainly saw kids of all ages enjoying the new-look Play Barn.
Outside, kids can enjoy the bouncing pillows, hold on tight on the pink barrel train ride, tackle the ‘Olym-Pig’ Assault Course, be a farmer on their own Kidbine Tractor, or take a swing at Crazy Golf. There’s an imaginative Fairy Trail too, which offers kids the chance to try and find various beautiful coloured fairies throughout a secret wooded area.
There’s also a lovely small animal-yard on-site, home to the Piglet Maternity Ward, lambs (who the kids can feed with milk bottles), gorgeous bunnies, guinea pigs and cute baby chicks.
Piglets Adventure Farm are great at hosting a variety of events throughout the year, and next up is their Easter Eggstravaganza (running from 30th March – 28th April) which will include an egg hunt, lambing live, and a Magic Hatter Easter show.
Entry prices range from £6.95-£8.95 (under one’s are free) and you can get an annual pass for £45 per adult and £50 per child. Piglets are currently open on the weekends, and we’d fully recommend a visit – it’s a great day out for the whole family.
