Travelling with a baby

Odds Farm dayout with kids.

September is a great month for going round English glorious countryside and Odds Farm made a delightful dayout for our kids and us.

The weather was fabulous when we visited, so we spent most of our time outdoors, exploring the vast grounds, riding the tractor, running around and just greeting pigs, sheep, donkeys, goats and so on.

The minigolf was a hit for myself and our 4 years old, bringing me dear childhood memories and frustrating my eldest about his lack of direction. Practice is key, so will be back older and hopefully wiser and more skilled.

The fortress playground was a blast for both 4 years old and toddler; so we chose to have a picnic and bubbles at the tables just in front.

Our toddler had a crush on the Jacob seeps and kept on going back to feed and cuddle them. Regardless of sharp long horns, E just decided they were the cutest and giggled his head off when they licked him. Parents (slightly nervous at the beginning) concluded eventually is relatively fine and definitely reciprocated.

For sunny days there’s a beautiful sand and water playarea with cute sunchairs – great to sit back and just watch the little people discovering tools, diggers and getting very engaged.

But Odds Farm makes a beautiful dayout with kids even on rainy days – there are tones of softplay inside, for various ages and physical abilities. On that occasion we only spent about 15 minutes to the disappointment of my 4 years old.

The bunnies, chicken, goats and sheep are next door and inside and there’s lots of educational sessions for City boys like ours about milking, feeding, cuddling.

Odds Farm September and October weekends are fun packed and so inviting, fingers crossed for sunny balmy days!

    This really brings back memories as we went to Odds Farm when my daughter (now 15!) was a toddler and loved it. We’ve always meant to go back, but somehow didn’t make it. It sounds as much fun now, as it did then, though I don’t remember the mini golf, which we love as a family, so can’t believe we missed. Your little one and the goats make for a lovely picture!

      Hi Sarah, wow such a time hope and sweet memories with your daughter as a toddler! These kids they grow too fast and we do not get any younger..;) Amazing to hear Odds Farm has been around for so long as it looks impeccable and newish to me. Mini golf must be then a new addition, I need to dig out a picture for you and the article. Thanks a lot for stopping by!

    Odds farm is somewhere I’ve watched grow over the years. It always reminds me of Coombe Mill on a bigger scale. You make it sound every bit as fun in real life as it looks on the website. The animals look very friendly and approachable, though I’m sure that goat is in fact a Jacobs sheep – we have a field of them and goats too.
    it sounds like they have something to keep everyone busy in all weather, though it looks a beautiful day for your visit.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

      Haha Fiona, you made me google Jacobs sheep and of course you are right! I guess we need to visit farms more often and I especially need to pay more attention to labels 😉 Pleasure to link in as always!
