Attraction Information

Fresh fruit, farm animals and a fun playground for the little ones - The Balloon Tree Farmshop & Cafe is a great place to visit on your day out with the kids. Enjoy a drink at the cafe while you watch your sprogs slip, slide, climb and explore the large play area in the garden. With a kid-sized, fully-functional digger and tractor, plus a 2-storey Wendy house and a climbing frame, your tots will have plenty to keep them busy.

Right by the play area, you’ll find Animal Corner - the place where you can meet the adorable animals who live on the farm. Say hi to Petal and Flower - the resident pygmy goats, buy a bag of special feed from the farm shop and give them some treats. You’ll be sure to make some furry friends!

Have you been strawberry picking? Drop by the Balloon Tree Farmshop & Cafe in the summer and pick your own fresh fruit, right from the field. Following a well-organised PYO trail through the farm, you can select the best of whatever’s in season - from the first strawberries in May to the last pumpkin in October. Just imagine how excited the kids would be to go on a hunt for the perfect Halloween pumpkin!

  • Pick your own fresh fruits in summer
  • Meet the lovable farm animals
  • Awesome farm-themed kids' playground
