With the heatwave here in the UK we decided to make the most of it and did a drive up to Tattershall, Lincolnshire. We spent one night at Tattershall Lakes Country Park with Away Resorts and visited Tattershall Farm Park which was less than a 10 minute drive from the resort. There was plenty to do in the resort, but unfortunately everything got booked so we weren’t able to enjoy the activities there as we only had one full. So we decided to go off site and explore.
It was our first time taking E to a farm and what a farm it was. There was so much to do for families and well worth the price we paid to get in. (£6 per adult with a family ticket, under 2s were free). We spent around 3 hours at the farm.
There were loads of animals and E could feed them with some food we bought from the shop (50p a bag). Although E was a little hesitant to feed them herself, she passed mummy the food and let the animals eat it from mummy’s hand as she clapped and giggled.
We worked our way round the farm with intervals of fun games/activities to play. There was a small “fun fair” feel play area with instruments and games that kept us entertained for about half an hour before moving on.
There was a small pond where you could spot some fish and have a rest before carrying on to see more animals towards the end.
After we’d seen all the animals, there was a big play ground for children of all ages, a cafe and a picnic area with seating and tables. The play ground had specific zones for children under 5 or over 5 so they could play safe. I thought this was brilliant! There was a zip line, jumping pillow, trampoline, bouncy castle, sand pit, slides and more to keep the children entertained outside.
When it got a bit too hot, we were able to take E inside and play in the soft play area which again had a zone for under 5s.
Needless to say, she did not want to leave!
Anyone looking for a trip outside London and doesn’t mind the 3 hour drive, I recommend making a trip up to Tattershall. On our journey home, we even saw 30 deers crossing the road. What a sight!
