Family Day's Out: My Top 5 Family Farms (UNDER £10)

Updated: Aug 15

Family day out on a budget?


Well look no further I have not one, not two but five family days out to a family farm for £10 and under.


We love days out, but sometimes they can add up especially over half term and summer holidays. With their being so much to do and so much variety the costs can begin to mount up.


So, I took some time & complied a list of our favourite family farms, so here they are..

1. Kent Life Heritage Farm -£9.95 https://kentlife.org.uk/plan-your-visit/


Kent Life Heritage Farm is truly an gem! We absolutely love this farm & everything they have to offer throughout the year.


From regular tractor rides during the day to an outdoor park, to petting animals, well there is never a dull moment on this estate!


It’s totally picturesque with detailed heritage!

They have the most beautiful, dare I say “Pink Chapel” on the estate. You can easily spend a generous 4-5 hours on this farm for a family day out.


A tea room on site, should you get famished, with a buggy park on stand by.


From horses, to ponies, to pigs, the kids & whole family will never get board here at Kent Life.


The best part is, (Shhhh) it’s inexpensive & you can spend as much money or as little money as you would like on this day out.

Ahhh, now this little farm is so close to our hearts, we first took Cara here when she was a wee baby & we’ve never looked back, they have the best little cafe ever!

There are no rides, soft play, sand pits, basically it’s simply a beautiful little farm.

REVIEW TIME:


Would we come back?

It goes without saying that we will always come back to this farm. Perhaps once a year though, just because there are soo many more places to visit with more activities on site for both kids.


5. Godstone Farm (£8.25) - https://www.godstonefarm.co.uk/plan-your-visit/


Godstone Farm is such a beautiful farm, we particularly love the animal holding area, sadly closed due to (COVID) but it's always a fun time.

But this won’t stop your little ones from living their best lives at Godstone Farm. They have a generous sized adventure playground, so the kids can let of a ton of steam.


Their Dino trail will capture your little ones imagination and of course, you might

want to stop of and grab a bite to eat (Take away only due to COVID)


Followed by some feeding time, with over 500 animals on the farm, with special shoots built in, it just makes feeding time soo easy!


We are due to visit this farm again soon & we can’t wait to take you with us.


WHAT TO EXPECT:

- Over 500 animals

- Play area

- Sand pits

- Dino trail

- Soft play

- Animal holding room

- Tractor ride

- Play barn

And soo much more..

REVIEW TIME:


Would we come back?

Absolutely and we will make it seasonally too, so we can enjoy the events the farm has to offer us throughout the year.

It’s a fabulous farm, offering a ton of things to do for the whole family and like the last 4 farms you and your whole family could easily spend 4-5 hours here.


And it's a wrap!


I hope you've enjoyed this little list I have put together, let me know if you visit any of these farms and whilst your there have a super time!
