Attraction Information

Heritage and fun sit side by side in 28 acres of beautiful and historical grounds in Kent Life.  

This real working farm showcases and breeds all your favourite animals including sheep, cattle, pigs, donkeys, ferrets, ducks, geese and alpacas. Children can enjoy the Cuddle Corner for a hands-on animal experience with our furry friends, as well as tractor rides and the chance to get creative in the Paint-A-Pot Studios.

Indoors there’s a soft play barn and Dotty’s Tea Room, which serves delicious homemade cakes and snacks. Families can also become acquainted with Kent’s rural past in the Vintage Village.

Farmyard fun and a premier heritage experience celebrating 150 years of Kent!
