Smithills Open Farm is a family run kids farm with a great range of animals, from traditional farm animals to reptiles, meerkats and wallabies. There’s also a long list of brilliant activities to discover too whilst learning about farm life.
The farm is set in 70 acres of countryside with toy tractors to zoom around in, an outdoor play area with a pretend combine harvester, an indoor play area with bouncy castle assault course, and if weather permitting, an outdoor inflatable assault course too.
There’s also the opportunity to meet some of the animals up close and personal during the day. Meerkats and piglets for the cute factor, and spiders and snakes for the more adventurous types, there’s something for everyone.
Smithills Open Farm Animals
Smithills Open Farm has over 20 different animals for your kids to discover, with Pets Corner being one of the most popular attractions. They’ll feed baby lambs, goats, foals and alpacas, and also cuddle baby rabbits, guinea pigs and gorgeous little chicks. It’s also a great place for your kids to learn, with one of the farmers on-hand to tell you all about life on the farm.
After all the fun, why not take 10 minutes to grab something to eat at the café or a snack from the snack shop. Both have delicious food available and the Ice Creamery that can be visited separately from the farm have lip smacking ice cream to purchase or take away.
