Animal Farm Adventure



Winter or summer there’s plenty for the kids to do down at Animal Farm Adventure Park in Berrow.

I recently visited this small and extremely friendly family activity centre with my eight year old son. Animal Farm is just a forty minute drive from the centre of Bristol down the M5 and off at junction 22.

On entering the reception which also doubles up as the shop you are immediately welcomed by a member of the staff all of whom where the Farm uniform. Terri the duty manager explained the layout of the centre which is very much disabled friendly.

First on the agenda was for my son to have an hour in the playbarn where there are four different slides including the death drop, a giant soft brick, play house, ball pit, tunnels and interactive panels all which can keep the little one amused for hours.

For the parents watching and catching up with each other there is a small servery selling drinks and snacks and a large tabled seating area.
Then it’s off to the cuddle club, an area set up for the kids to hold one of the many rabbits and guinea pigs, Animal Farm really go out of their way to make sure the kids enjoy their time holding and petting the animals. Every one of the children participating had a smile from ear to ear on our visit.
Out of the cuddle club and a wander through the adventure play area climbing over the wooden obstacle course, jumping on the trampolines, through the agility course and a quick hop onto the Jenny Landtrain to go around the animal park.

A word of warning, don’t forget to ask for a bag of animal feed (1 free bag per paying child) so that as you walk the same rote as the Landtrain you can feed some of the animals.

There were a number of new structures under construction which I’m told will house a new station and hen house.
All of the animals were very friendly, even the Lamas were great and no they didn’t spit at us! Then there was the sheep, a shire hoarse, several pony’s, ducks and a number of exotic animals.

The on-site café is very reasonable priced, clean and tidy. All in all a great day out was had by my son and of course I enjoyed it to!

The park is open all day every day throughout the year with the exception of Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Admission is £6.50 Adults £6 children and £4.50 for Seniors (under 2 years free)
