London lifestyle & travels with kids and babies

Day out Devon: World of country life

A bit of context: we spent few hours at the World of Country Life on our way back to London from Cornwall. Perfect stopover, right after baby’s morning beauty nap.

Highlights for the grown ups: the vintage collection agriculture tools, outfits, carriages, vintage trains right after the entrance. Fascinating stories, videos and characters. 2nd vintage collection further down and also indoors, cars and motorcycles.

Highlights for the 3.5 years old: the bumpy slides were a big hit. So was the pirate’s ship indoors, lots of sand, rope bridges and playareas. And of course the giant pillow to bounce on, the farm frenzy soft play and the trampolines.

Highlights for baby: lots of animals from ducklings, to goats and alpacas, birds of prey, sheeps, donkeys, wallabies and their babies. Bits of falconry show. The playarea with swings, rope bridges and nature play.

Highlights for all of us: train safari ride within the park with a stopover to feed the llamas and deers. Very cute and friendly, amazing table manners for all of them . We all had a blast getting hands tickled with their funny tongues and cuddled quite a few. One of our best experiences with animals, warmly recommending!

So in a nutshell, great outdoors and indoors options, friendly and funny personnel. We were also extremely lucky with the weather, sunny and balmy 17 degrees, wish we had more time to enjoy, there’s so much great stuff for a gorgeous day out packed with fun and variety!

PS: Many thanks to World of Country Life for the complimentary passes. Pictures, monkey business and opinions entirely ours.

    What a great stop over on your way back from Cornwall. I’ve not heard of this one but it would be very interesting to me. Was that a tractor and trailer you were feeding the deer from? We like to hand feed our animals but don’t encourage the children to feed the deer by hand when they are in their field as they have antlers that could do someone a mischief if the deer got spooked. Perhaps if we drove the tractor and trailer through the field as this looks we could feed them that way. Currently we place the food on the floor for them and stand back to watch. Our alpaca are happy to take corn from the children’s hands. I love how there is something here for everyone, such a lovely way to set your post out showing all that is on offer.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

    I always love a stopover on a long journey, it makes such a difference to the kids happiness. We tend to stop at NT places as then there isn’t a cost as we are members but this looks lovely and you had great weather. Mich x #Countrykids
