Travelling with kids (and babies)

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.

    So close to London and yet it looks like farm parks in the Cotswolds. Looks like you had a lovely day and great weather. #countrykids

      It is, not just just little ones, we really liked it as well and find it rather peaceful 😉

  5. so much to do! I love parks. my favourites would be the playgrounds, the wooden train is something my son would go mad for, but I’m into history too so would enjoy the house! #countrykids
