Lee Valley Park Farms
Telephone: 01992 892 781
Lee Valley Park Farms offer two fantastic experiences and are nestled in the middle of picturesque River Lee Country Park, Waltham Abbey.
At Hayes Hill Farm you can meet a variety of exciting animals, including Tallulah and Barbara the pigs, Ella and Eve the goats, mice, snails, rabbits, and even Newton the bearded dragon. After an activity packed day with all the animals, time out to play can be taken in the tractor barn, where there's mini tractors, The Pit to dig in and an adventure play area too.
There's also the Bundle Barn to explore; an indoor soft play area where children can moo like a cow while whizzing down the big cow slide or dive into the ball pools, while Mum and Dad relax with a cup of tea or coffee.
Plus Hilltop Adventure and Alpine Adventure where you can bounce on the giant jumping pillow, clamber to the dizzy heights of the Spider Tower or slide the Essex slopes in squidgy donuts!
At Holyfield Hall Farm you can learn about life on a working modern dairy and arable farm. Stroll down or take a tractor and trailer ride (weekends and school holidays only) to the farm, where you can visit the milking parlour to see the cows being milked.

It may be worth checking out Lee Valley Park Farms's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Lee Valley Park Farms before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
