Overview
More
Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm is in the middle of the beautiful county of Suffolk in Eastern England and is a small livestock farm breeding farm animals that were once common but are now very rare. It's a great time to bring your whole family to the farm to meet the piglets, feed the goats and let the kids loose in the play area whilst you settle into the calm surroundings with a piece of homemade cake or a cream tea.

We only spent an hour here, but you could spend a couple. Stroking the rabbits and holding a lamb were the highlights. It can be quite muddy, so stick your wellies on.

I would imagine that it's a very pretty location in good weather, although (and yes I know it's a rare breeds farm) they are very reliant on very muddy sheep and pigs - they were cute however. The lamb petting was really sweet and children...More

I'm afraid due to the livestock on the farm, we are unable to allow dogs to visit.
