Boston Park Farm Review Guide

Boston Park Farm is one of the cheapest farm parks in Yorkshire. In fact, it might even be the cheapest. It is a small farm park near Scunthorpe in Lincolnshire and Doncaster in South Yorkshire. I would say that this farm park is more for younger children up to the age of 6 or 7.

When you arrive you pay at the gift shop that is also part of the cafe. You can also purchase food here for their animals so many sure you pick some up as there are a few hungry mouths to feed.

In the cafe area, there is a small soft play area. It is for children under 8 years of age. Although small my son loved it and he made lots of new friends there. They also have a small area for babies and young toddlers with a few soft shapes. There are lots of tables in this area plus picnic benches outside. You can picnic outside but they are not permitted indoors.

Outside there are a few play areas including a small indoor sandpit with buckets and spades, a small slide and a playhouse. Plus there is an indoor bouncy castle.

There is a small walk around their animal paddocks. It only took us around 15 minutes to walk around and feed their animals. Some of the enclosures are a bit small and could do with updating.

Their animals include sheep, calves, alpacas, pigs and goats. Plus chicks, chickens, turkeys and a few other small animals. If they have lambs they often allow children to help bottle feed them.

Just outside the cafe where most of the picnic benches are there is a playframe for younger kids.

At the end of the animal trail, there is a play area more suited to bigger kids. They are some hay bales for them to play on. Plus there is some larger play equipment with swings, a cargo next and a wooden playframe. There are a few other newer play pieces around here and a new peddle go-kart area.

In the summer months, you can have a go at their maize maze. This is open from mid-July until the end of October. You have to look out for flag poles where you clip your sheet to show that you have found a flag. If you find all of them there is usually a small prize. It used to be an additional cost but admission prices have gone up slightly and it is now included.

Our visit only took a couple of hours including lunch. We visited when they didn’t have the maize maze. If you want to extend your day out there is crazy golf at the nearby Sunnybank gardens.

They can also host your child’s birthday party.
