London lifestyle & travels with kids and babies
Back to the nature, simplicity and countryside again – Zenbabytravel charges batteries. And here’s to Godstone Farm Surrey and a round up of best childrens farms near London.
Godstone farm Surrey lies between beautiful 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. Godstone Farm Surrey made a wonderful chilled dayout ! Our friends and us also found it sensibly priced, with week-end time at £8.9 per adult and child above 2 years and £3.4 per child above 1 year.
