Attwell Farm Park - Redditch
Fun at the Farm
Last week we donned our wet weather gear and headed to Attwell Farm Park in Redditch. It really was a rather wet affair but we, as a tribe, don’t let the weather put us off doing anything...and I mean anything!
On arrival we were greeted with a big sign on the door stating that we were entering a ‘mask wearing’ zone and a hand sanitiser station which we all readily used.
Walking through the enclosed area we were met with a very impressive soft play area which, of course, is closed at the moment for obvious reasons, but had it been open our tribe would’ve been in their element.
At the arrival desk we checked in, bought some animal food (£1 a bag) and headed out to see what animals we could spot and feed; they have a plethora of animals including ducks, sheep, horses and llamas...we were greeted with some particularly excited llamas who tried to steal our food! The walkways through the animals are quite wide so there is plenty of space for pushchairs and it’s easy to social distance.
The animals all look well cared for which was really lovely to see. We got the feeling that the owners care about their animals rather than just trying to make a profit. Whilst walking round there were a few hand sanitising stations and close to the entrance back into the soft play/cafe there was a hand washing station complete with soap and warm water to give your hands a thorough clean. There was nothing to dry them on though so we all had soggy hands.
There is an outdoor wooden play area for the children to enjoy and also a real life fire engine that our lot thoroughly enjoyed and spent most of their playtime in...one of mine had a narrow escape involving getting her head stuck, because she was so excited, but rest assured she was fine and we managed to release her!!! All areas were buggy and wheelchair friendly.
There is a Café adjoined to the soft play area which serves hot and cold food throughout the day as well as crisps and cakes. All chairs and tables were being cleaned once they’d been used which was excellent to see and very reassuring. You are also able to eat your picnics at the tables in the soft play area which is a bonus. We left ours in the car and popped back out to get them when we were ready for lunch.
This farm is a lot smaller compared to some of the more commercial farms but that isn’t a bad thing. It is spread out nicely with lots of space and I think even on a warm busy day it wouldn’t feel too crowded. The wet weather obviously kept people away on the day we visited as it was very very quiet. It meant we had the place almost to ourselves and easily got a table inside for our picnic lunch. Pre Booking is advised. Walk ins will only be permitted if capacity isn’t reached.
