Looking for a fun day out with the family where your little ones can get up close and personal with some furry friends? Look no further than Little Owl Farm Park, situated on the outskirts of Ombersley in Worcestershire! This charming children's farm offers visitors the chance to meet and greet an array of adorable animals in the animal barns, from fluffy rabbits to curious goats, and see animals in the paddocks. But that's not all – there is also an outdoor play area, soft play areas, bouncy pillows, pedal tractors, and a new 30m Duo Zipline!
What to expect at Little Owl Farm Park
As soon as you arrive at the farm, you'll be greeted by a friendly team of staff who will give you a map of the farm. Here, you can also buy bags of food to feed the animals (£1 per bag). You have the choice of food for the goats and sheep or the birds (or both if you like!) The park is well laid out, with plenty of space for visitors to explore.
One thing that sets this children's farm apart from others is the amount of interaction visitors can have with farm yard favourites including bunnies, guinea pigs, and lambs. Your little ones will love getting up close and personal with these furry friends. But it's not just about animal encounters – there are also lots of fun activities on offer too! Kids will love exploring the outdoor play area, bouncing on the bouncy pillows, and playing in the soft play.
As well as all this excitement, the farm has plenty of picnic benches where families can enjoy some lunch together. There's even an onsite café that serves hot drinks, homemade cakes, light lunches, and snacks.
What animals can you see?
Little Owl Farm Park is home to a variety of adorable animals that visitors can interact with. One of the main attractions at this children's farm is the friendly goats, who love nothing more than being petted and fed by visitors. Kids will also be able to get up close and personal with cute rabbits, guinea pigs, and newly hatched Chicks (when available).
In the pig barn, you can see the different breeds of Pigs. Some are a plain pink colour (known as ‘White’), and some have spots! When we visited, they had lots of piglets, too.
For those interested in larger animals, visitors can watch majestic alpacas gracefully roam around their enclosure or take a peek at the resident sheep, who always seem eager for attention. But that's not all – there are also ponies and horses grazing about in their paddocks! And let's not forget about the feathered friends on display, too - from fluffy chickens and ducks to birds like peacocks and turkeys. Little Owl Farm Park truly has something for everyone when it comes to animals. Whether you're looking for furry cuddles or simply want to marvel at some creepy critters, this children's farm in Worcestershire won't disappoint!
What else is at Little Owl Farm Park?
Aside from the adorable animals both in the animal barns and in the paddocks, there are lots of exciting things to see and do at Little Owl Farm Park. The attraction offers a great indoor play area, which features a small soft play and a soft play 'shootout alley' where you can shoot sponge balls out of canons - a little similar to Justin's House Pie-O-Matic Factory at Alton Towers. It was lots of fun!
For those who want to burn off some energy outdoors, there is an outdoor adventure playground with a slide and monkey bars, and other equipment, as well as two bouncy pillows, go-karts, a zip wire, a real tractor you can sit in, sandpits, pedal tractors, and a short nature trail. The base of the outdoor play area, similar to the bouncy pillows, is made up of sand, too, which our little one enjoyed.
There are also some other activities that are charged at an additional cost. These are the tractor ride (£1pp) and the barrel bugs ride (£1 per child). They looked like great fun! We didn't have any change when we visited and didn't realise that we could have paid for these extras by card at reception. We will definitely remember for next time!
How long can you spend at Little Owl Farm Park?
It's recommended that visitors allocate around three hours for their visit. At the time of posting, the farm is open from 10 am to 5 pm, giving you ample time to take a picnic and make a day of it. But please head to their Opening Times page for updated opening times and information on days they are open, as they're not open every day of the week in term time, etc.
How much does it cost to visit?
At the time of posting, the admission fee is priced at £11.95 per adult, £11.50 per child, and under 1s go free.
Having to pay for toddlers has personally put us off visiting Little Owl Farm Park (and other attractions with similar pricing for under 3s) until now. Although younger visitors can enjoy the under 3s section of soft play, sand pit, and small ride-on tractors, we waited until our son was three years old to be able to experience everything the farm has to offer. We found this to be an ideal age where he is interested in animals, wants to stroke and feed them, and is big enough to play on the bouncy pillows and play area.
If you're looking for an educational and fun packed day out with your family in Worcestershire, Little Owl Farm Park offers a great trip. With a range of friendly farm animals to meet, as well as outdoor play areas and indoor activities, there's plenty to keep children entertained. Don't forget to check the park's website before heading out for information on opening days, times, and prices.
