As well as adventure play and all sorts of action, Mead Open Farm is home to some of the cutest creatures around. Prepare for your heart to melt! Stroke fluffy rabbits, groom the ponies or take part in bottle feeding older lambs all year round. 

After oohing and ahhing over those little cuties, leap onto the Jumping Pillows and take on the Giants Rock Climbing Wall, or the Sky Trail high ropes course. Some activities, including the Sky Trail, are weather-dependent, so be sure to call ahead to avoid disappointment. There's even fun events going on throughout the year, so you can celebrate things like Easter and Christmas.
Over 13,000 sq ft, Shaggy's Indoor Playworld has huge slides, scramble nets and ball cannons for kids, come rain or sunshine. For even more indoor adventures, explore the Veggie Wood play area. Then, there’s Crazy Golf and Go-Karts for any little fidgets in your gang. As you leave just be sure to say a final goodbye to your favourite farmyard pal.

Far too expensive for what they offer.

I went here last week with my two children, both under 3, definitely not worth the £36 entry fee! The food was also overpriced and was poor, cold and dried out. The toilet are out of use until a refurb is finished so it’s a cold port-a-loo or a long walk back to the entrance. Definitely will not be returning.

Great way to spend the day

Mead Open Farm goes from strength to strength. They keep adding features, and there's enough here for a half-day or a full day with kids of all ages with plenty of variety. Like animals? There are plenty of those, as well as scheduled events to help with feeding and cuddles. Like activity? There's a huge soft play, mini golf, a Sky Trail, a climbing wall, pedal-powered buggies, pillow trampolines, two sand pit areas (one with diggers for those who like JCBs) and a huge playground. The canteens offer decent food (and have started to use compostable plates and cutlery which I really commend them for) but they also provide picnic areas, inside and out, if you want to bring your own food. The whole place is generally well maintained and they run an extended schedule of events during the summer when it gets busier (tractor rides, a sheep grand national, special events at Easter and Christmas as well), but between the soft play and the barns you don't have to spend too much time outside during the winter if you don't want to. It's generally quite quiet during school hours if you have toddlers; although during these times and during the winter some of the outdoor features for older kids are closed. During the summer holidays MOF can get very busy but they appear to manage the extra numbers well and it doesn't get too cramped. Admission is moderately expensive but I think given how much is offered here it is good value for money. My kids have totally different interests, and there is still enough here to cater to the whole family. We usually have trouble leaving!
