Piglets Adventure Farm Things To Do Review
Piglets is certainly somewhere that we could visit for a few years yet to come. You can find out below all the great things that this farm park has to offer.
They opened the beach at Piglets a few years ago. Their beach huts are available to rent for £20 a day plus a £10 deposit. These can be prebooked online. There were plenty of buckets and spades available and there is a big tower that the kids can play on.
In the warmer months, there is a snack hut that sells ice cream plus hot and cold drinks and of course, snacks. There is also a large water pump and they can control the water flow with dams. Taking a change of clothes is strongly recommended.
When you arrive you enter the cafe area. This has a small soft play area for babies toddlers. There is no soft play for bigger kids but there is an indoor play barn.
There are lots to play on outside including some fun farm-themed play equipment. My son loved the combine harvester with the slide at the back.
They have a main central area with play activities and then off that there are different trails. There was a farmyard trail where you will find all of their animals.
You can’t feed their animals but you can pet them and many of them were incredibly friendly. There is a small barn you can see animals in. This is where they have their pigs which often have piglets. We saw some one-day old piglets when we visited, they were so cute.
There is then a series of paddocks that you can walk around. My son was a bit disappointed that he couldn’t feed the animals but he was pleased that many of them wanted to be stroked.
There is a fairy trail in the woodland. Along the way, you have to collect coloured dust on your fingers. At the end, there is a board where you can read your fortune depending on which fingers have which colour on them.
He especially loved the assault course which is great for older kids. He must have gone around at least 8 times before we got bored of watching him.
During the warmer months, kids can have a got at water wars. They usually have pig racing twice a day and over some of July and most of August, there is a maize maze that you can attempt to find your way around.
A favourite for the bigger kids were the peddle go-karts. There is an excellent track and although they’re supposed to all go the same way this wasn’t always the case.
You can also pick up some clubs and balls and have a go at crazy golf. There are 9 holes and if there is no one waiting for your clubs you can go around again.
The only way to get to the play barn at Piglets is to take the tractor ride. This runs almost continuously throughout the day so there is never long to wait.
The barn is full of bales of hay, slides, rope swings and sand play. There is nothing ‘soft play’ about it and there is even a big slide with mats to ride down on. Plus a daredevil drop slide into a ball pit. It was all very different to what we are used to but it didn’t suit my son much as he’s so accident prone so we didn’t stay long in this bit and got the next tractor back.
The play barn is currently closed for refurbishment. There is a tented area next to the play area with a kiosk selling drinks and snacks.
The Barrel Train is great fun for kids of all ages. It’s quite a bumpy track and there may be a chance your kids get a bit muddy but it’s lots of fun.
We spent a good few hours at the farm and it’s certainly amongst the best that there is across the four counties of Yorkshire.
They often hold family-friendly events during the school holidays including a magician, Magic Mike, and more. There Christmas event is very popular and can sell out within hours.
