We’ve finally visited Herrings Green Farm and the all experience was lovely for a day out with the family surrounded by nature. It’s visible that all the animals are happy and well looked after too.
There are lots of different birds, geese to alpacas, donkeys, ponies, goats, sheep and chicken. Included in the ticket is a bag of feed – it was a lovely experience to feed the animals from our hands and this teaches to our little one such a lovely lessons: to take care of these animals and give love.
They have an outdoor play section with picnic tables a little slide and a vintage fire engine and tractor for kids to take photos and experience them.
At the entrance you can find a the farm shop where you can buy fresh veggies (they have an amazing variety) and there are a few wash basins where you can wash your hands if you want to pet the animals.
Overall we absolutely loved this farm and on their website there are lots of activities and gifts that you can choose from: being an adult zoo keeper for a day, spending an evening at the farm, family animal bubble, goat walking & more… Please tag me over on Instagram if you decide to go.
Hello there. It’s not already Halloween but this year, more than ever, we have that desire of celebrations in the air. If you’re looking for things to do over the School holidays this half term 2020, well you’re in the right place. I’ve put together a list of Halloween things to do in Bedfordshire… Ah before I forgot, have a Spooky Halloween!
Spooky Wrest Park
This even will be available from Sat 24 October until Sunday 1 November 2020 (10am-5pm).
A unique occasion to follow the trail to solve creepy clues and gather round to listen to spooky stories. There’s a frighteningly fun fancy dress competition every day – just go in your scariest outfits to be in with a chance of winning.
I love this Garden Centre in Willington and from the 26 October until the 31 October you can join Pumpkin Carving sessions and get in the spooky mood. In the event social distancing rules will be followed and the event will be held outside so please if you go remember to wrap up warm.
Included in the price is a pumpkin, your own individual pumpkin scooping tool kit, a battery operated tea light, a frighteningly good activity sheet and a chocolate treat.. sounds fab!
The Jordans Trust, a local Mill Museum in Bedfordshire will be holding its first children’s haunting Halloween tours during half term. This event will run from the 23rd – 27th October at 10.00am or 1.00pm and takes children through the spooktastic tales of years gone by.
Booking is essential and tickets are £3 per child (accompanying adult free). Tours will last approximately 30 minutes. In addition to the children’s Halloween tour parents and families can take part in the Rotten Rhymes Trail and solve clues in order for children to get a prize. The gardens have been transformed for some spooky fun! £1.50 per child – you don’t need to book for this, just turn up between 9am – 4pm during the 20th – 31st October.
Herrings Green Activity Farm Bird of Prey Centre – Wilstead
Herrings Green Activity Farm Bird of Prey Centre will also be running halloween activities. You can also join the Autumn Fun on the Farm event that is going on from 10 October 2020 until 23 October 2020. Your visit includes a pumpkin that you can choose from the patch and feeding some of the lovely farm animals. Hope you’ll have lots of fun in the nature.
If you have any other recommendations let me know, both on here or instagram. You can find me here.
Hello there 🙂 Last week we’ve decided to go to Linton Zoo. It was such a lovely day out with our 2 years old daughter and the fact that the zoo is relatively small facilitated us to see all the animals.
There is a large variety of animals that you can see in this zoo like lions, tigers, tapirs (there is even a small cutie one as you can see in the below picture), zebras, kangaroos and many others.
It’s completely different from other zoo we’ve visited like Africa alive (which is our favorite ever) but considering the fact that this zoo was only 1 hour drive from where we live, it was totally worthy. Our little one was so happy to see all the birds and also to take pictures with the different dinosaurs and gorilla’s statues 😊
It was also particularly interesting to see my little girl faces while some birds were eating or when she saw for the first time a tiger (ps she loves tiger as it’s one of her fave character in her nighttime story) as this is part of life and she never experienced something similar.
There are also different facilities like a picnic area (weather permitting), a coffee shop (I personally like to pack all the snacks for Sophie but we previously had a lovely coffee from here), baby changing and a gift shop.
