Family Day's Out: Old MacDonald's Farm
Updated: Sep 7
Another Day. Another Adventure..
Who loves family days out? (We do, we do, we do)
We are Cara, CoCo & Mummy Adventures..
We were kindly invited to one of our all time favourite farms. This farm is the perfect balance of both fun, farm & pure adventure!
Old Mac Donald's Farm is in Brentwood and is honestly one of the best family outings to say the least.
If you’ve been you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Ok, a typical day ticket will cost you £18 per adult and £17 per child (3 and over) - Honestly this is on the expensive side, especially if you have more than three or four young kids with you, however, the experience is always out of this world and is very much worth every penny, the best part is you can bring your own food, meaning that you can spend as little or a much as you like once you are on the farm.
They have some new special treats that have recently been added to the park, which we took full advantage of (Of course)
I loved the “Challenge” - This is basically a “Can you see & do it all” and boy oh boy, it’s a challenge. There is soo much to do! Like seriously!
4 hours in & CoCo needed a pick me up nap, Cara, well Cara is the life of the party, some how, she keeps going (I wish a had the energy of a toddler)
What I love about Old MacDonald's Farm is that it’s family ran! By some seriously inspiring people (Not sucking up)
I’ve seen them put the work in on some of our adventures at their farm and I've listened to their story and it’s very inspirational.
We arrived around 11am and basically were the last family to leave (Story of our lives).

Would we go back?
Would we go back - Urrrmm YES!
We’ve been visiting this farm since Cara was 6 months old & I’m convinced it’s her favourite farm and slowly becoming CoCo's too!
I love the fact that the farm offers a balance of fun with rides but is also very educational, petting the animals, feeding them to the “Hen House Review & “Bull Frog Trio” the kids leave taking something away & that’s very important to me. I really like the fact that you can make a bit of a saving if you book in 7 days and then they offer the afternoon saver which is also a fab bargain, especially if you adventure 3-4 per week.
