Explore Children’s Petting Farms In Buckinghamshire

From the rolling Chiltern Hills to quaint towns and villages. If you’re looking for a family day out on London’s doorstep, Buckinghamshire is the perfect county to explore.

“Our family loves getting out into the fresh air and doing something special at the weekend. We’re so lucky that Buckinghamshire has some lovely children’s farms to explore, with indoor, outdoor and animal activities for all ages. Our little toddler loves visiting petting farms to get up close to adorable animals, whilst we can appreciate the beautiful surrounding countryside.”

Home to adorable animals and farmyard fun in abundance, meet sheep, cows, goats and more in Paddock Walks, try bumpy Tractor & Trailer Rides and say hello to smaller furry folk in undercover animal barns at children’s petting farms across Buckinghamshire.
