Overview

Famyard unworld offers visitors a local small "petting" Farm and a giant Indoor Soft Play area.(NOT a national tourist atraction!) The Farm is small and contained but is a place where we believe childen can and should be able to interact closely (and safely) with animals. To this end we offer a timed programme of chicken feeding sessions, goat walking, ferret racing,rabbit and guinea pig handling and our popular "CLOSE ENCOUNTERS" displays where you can get up close to some unusual animals not normally found on a farm. There is a small Farm shop selling gifts, animal feed, ices, cold drinks, sweets and fresh eggs. You can also have a tea or coffee and sandwich or cake in Barbara's Peacock Tea shop. Funworld is a giant Indoor Soft Play area with zones for babies, under-5's and children up to 12 years. Within Funworld we have a full cafeteria service with seating for 120. Vistors are encouraged to wander freely betwen the farm and indoor play area - so an ideal venue when weather is a bit uncertain. A visit to the farm only might last from 2-3 hours but a joint ticket to Farm & Funworld means many visitors spend the whole day with us - moving freely between the farm and play area depending on weather and our farm presentations. The Joint Entry ticket offers great value for money - whatever the weather.

Perfectly pleasant small farm with very friendly staff. Nestled away near Watford, it offers a small cafe, a little shop, a petting farm and playground for kids. Lots of seating areas for adults. Definitely recommend for a cheap weekend activity for the kids.

Absolutely horrified at the small enclosures the animals are kept in. This is NOT A FARM but a ramshackle building with animals squashed onto the concrete area in front. We took one look at the enclosures through the open fence and drove away. I hope...More

Like other reviewers, we found the farm to be in need of a lot of work from the playground equipment to the animal facilities. From painting to repairs we think it looks like it's just been left without maintenance and the required modernisation. The reptile...More
