A Christmas Journey: At Old MacDonalds Farm

Updated: Dec 20, 2020

Another day. Another adventure.

Tis the season to be jolly..

We are Cara, CoCo And Mummy Adventures we do reviews on days out, whilst helping you whilst also helping you find classes for children aged 0 -12 years old.

And guess what we absolutely love it!!

Oh and stick around whilst you read along..

Well, we had a sprinkle of Christmas magic thrown at us as we visited Old MacDonald’s Farm.


We were invited out on a pr trip.

Now, if you’ve followed us on Instagram long enough, you’ll know, Cara especially is obsessed with this farm!

We visit every single year & frankly we can’t actually get enough.

They offer some incredible packages too:

- Early Bird Tickets

- Off Peak Tickets

- Peak Tickets

I love it when farm, theme parks do this, it’s a fantastic money saver!

This year they pulled something really special out of the bag.

Now we have visited a ton of Christmas grottos over the years, so this is coming from someone who has a bit of experience!

They did something magical to the farm! The spirit of Christmas came to life, every inch of the farm had some Christmas sparkle & it frankly blew my mind.

The kids..well the kids were absolutely delighted.

We started the day by right, by bumping into Santa & his lovely elf!

Now this got the kids right into the mood!

We were kindly invited to visit Old MacDonalds Farm for their Christmas event this year and have been invited to visit again this coming summer, which frankly, we cannot wait!

The farm itself has the perfect balance of farm & play, which is why it has to be one of our favourite farm around.

Now let’s talk about the theme this year!

This is the first year OMD Farm have hosted a Christmas event & when I tell you they outdid themselves, I mean it!

The details attention to detail was something else, considering that this was their first time ever running this operation.

My Review:

The Christmas Journey itself was seriously impressive, the attention to detail was spot on & very well thought through. The whole farm had a hint of Christmas, it was magical!

The kids, well the kids were in absolute love.

The elves really added the “Oomph” into magical. Everyone remained in character which was so lovely for the kids, I often times forgot & felt like a big kid myself.

We sadly couldn’t do the circus due to tier 3, however plan on returning back for the summer instead, which we cannot wait to do.

There was soo much to do, with the gingerbread hunt, the gift bags were just the cutest! Cara is still going through hers & absolutely loved the workbook.

It’s a shame that we have officially gone back into lockdown, so sadly tickets are no longer in sale, but I hope this post gets you ready for more Christmas events with Old MacDonalds Farm.

Would We Visit Again:

Absolutely, yes, if you know us, we visit every year and we look forward to visiting new Christmas. I have a feeling it's going to be bigger and better.

I'm gutted that tier 4 has officially kicked:(
