Godstone farm and roundup 3 farms within 1 hour drive of London that our kids love

Back to the nature, simplicity and countryside again – Zenbabytravel charges batteries.

Godstone farm lies in the beautiful Surrey hills. We started our visit with friends on a late Saturday morning and we found it peaceful and fun.


The playgrounds are vast, hilly and on the immediate vicinity of the cows. The sandpit with the train occupied our 3 kids for a good hour in the afternoon – it has a little slide, lots of toys and tools.


Next there’s a spidernet natural plays area, a chicken run labyrinth that proved a huge success with our boys, a zip line, swings, more slides and rather elaborated nets.

We spent some time talking to and cuddling the donkeys and the ponies; the pigs were impressively huge and with lots of cute piglets.

Two indoor soft play area kept our 3 boys entertained for almost half an hour and thereafter we headed for picnic with bubbles (after a week in Italy impossible to go for a dry lunch!).

The dino trail was fun and noises very realistic. And thereafter we headed back to cuddling bunnies, driving motorcycles and building a den.

There’s also a tractor to be ridden including around the pond, animal feeding sessions and more petting, interacting and observing opportunities: llamas, goats, bunnies, chinchillas, alpacas, chicken, ostriches and their cute babies.


Lots of flowers, plants and glorious Surrey countryside for a delightful Saturday, catching up with friends and kids playing. Warmly recommending for a chilled dayout!

The entrance week-end time is £8.9 per adult and child above 2 years and £3.4 per child above 1 year. 

The other 2 suspects for our kids’ favourite farms?

I am sure you guessed: Willows Activity Farm and Hatfield – one jammed packed with activities, the other next to a gorgeous house, gardens and charming eateries. 

About Willows Farm we wrote extensively, the latest article including 1st year anniversary for Peter Rabbit playground in here.
