Details

Get ready for free range family fun at Barleylands Farm Park. Packed with excitement there’s so much to do whatever the weather. Say hello to farmyard friends big and small, meet birds of prey, run wild in the indoor play, or jump aboard the tractor & trailer ride and join in changing daily activities.

The indoor animal barn allows you to get up close and personal with everyone’s farmyard favourites and there are plenty opportunities to bottle feed the lambs plus feed the other animals. Plus you’ll find extra special events taking place during every school holiday from Halloween to Be a Farmer for the Day and everything in between. Barleylands hosts the largest reptile collection in the South East, something any creepy crawly lover wouldn’t want to miss.

Barleylands is perfect for all weather types. On sunny days, head to the outdoor adventure area. It’s packed full of fun activities from the huge jumping pillow to the zip wire plus the climbing frames and much more. Children can use the didcars to transport themselves around the park, leaving mum or dad hands free. On colder days, make the most of the indoor play area. With crazy high slides and ball blasting madness, it will keep children entertained for hours.

Education is at the heart of Barleylands. The Discovery Centre allows children and parents to look back on the history of farming whilst exploring the vintage tractors, machines and interactive displays.

In addition to the Farm Park, The Village at Barleylands offers a range of art and craft workshops, shops and boutiques, Tiptree Tea Rooms and holds many special events during the year, including farmer’s markets and wedding fairs.
