Visiting anywhere throughout the covid restrictions has been challenging but we are determined to try and do whatever we can, Animal Farm Adventure Park in Berrow was our plan for today! Tickets were reasonable at £12 for adults and children over 2 – Under 2s are free. There is a car park attached with free parking also.
Included in the entry fee is access to all the sessions throughout the day including animal handling (Rabbits, guinea pigs, snakes and lizards) Fox and Racoon feeding, Donkey grooming and Baby goat playtime. You can also buy small bags of animal feed on the way in. Don’t forget to scan in for Track and Trace!
Hand washing stations are dotted around along with hand gel. There are picnic benches all throughout the farm so you can bring snacks / a picnic to enjoy through the day or within the indoor soft play you’ll find hot food available (and you will have to wear a mask in any indoor areas at the moment) – the children’s meals are £3.80 or £4.20 with a drink but portions are pretty small!
There are also several other food/ice cream stands in the outside area by the trampolines and castle climbing frame. The food one was cash only today so although most take cards I would take some emergency cash, just incase.
Animal Farm Adventure Park Animal Encounters
The girls especially loved the animal encounters – Cuddling the rabbits (we got Kevin) and guinea pigs (we got Moo) and then handling the tortoise (speedy) and snakes. They also had one of the lizards out too but the girls weren’t so keen on him. We didn’t catch the fox feeding as Holly wanted to go on the trampolines instead.
The trampolines are free to use but are unsupervised so we did have to hang around until others had finished before we could get on them. The 2 rides either side of the trampolines weren’t running which was a shame as Holly loves little roller coasters and the Caterpillar one would have been perfect, but hopefully it’s running again soon.
There are toilet facilities located near the main entrance / next to the indoor play area, there are separate baby change facilities which was perfect for us as my husband is normally in charge of baby changing and often we find they only have the baby change station in the ladies toilets!
Crazy golf is also available, you just need to collect the balls and putters from reception but it was really busy so we didn’t have a go on there today.
Starting a zoo?
Lottie has decided she would love a pony now, so I feel like this may have been the beginnings of a very expensive hobby! Holly loved the piglets especially the ones rolling in the mud. Chloe loved the rabbits (especially Kevin the one we handled) Not sure where we will be putting all these animals they now want!
I think it was a hit all round and did see they also do annual passes for £50 for adults and £65 for children over 2 which would be great if you were planning on visiting more than 4 times a year.
We had a really good day and if you went to all the animal encounters you could definitely fill a whole day – we were super lucky with the weather too and the sun shone all day. If you forget the suncream, pop into the shop I noticed they have a good stock of various different types of suncreams available to buy 🙂
For reference Chloe is 10, Lottie is 9, Holly is 3 and Oscar is 15 months 🙂
