West Lodge Farm is an award winning farm park where children and adults of all ages can have hands on experiences of farm and country life. There are so many opportunities to explore the whole farm; the livestock, the walks and nature trails, the fields, the streams and the machinery.
Visitors can also handle the rabbits, chicks and guinea pigs in cuddle corner, take a pony ride and watch the very popular piglet race or play in the adventure playground. We are open every day of the year apart from the period between Christmas and New Year – this allows the visitor to enjoy lots of different farm experiences such as lambing, sheep shearing and harvest time on the farm.
Rain never stops the fun at West Lodge… we have a huge timber play adventure barn and all of the animal activities take place undercover so you can enjoy it all – whatever the weather! (20th July The indoor barn is currently closed due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will reopen as soon as we have permission from Public health England)
Our walks and Nature Trails will take you on all sorts of adventures! They may take you to The Witch’s House or the Troll Bridge or for those feeling more energetic you may want to venture down to the Monks Dam where you can enjoy a picnic by the stream. New in 2020 we have a very special Dinosaur Trail for all you budding archaeologists.
There are plenty of places to eat and picnic. The Rickyard Restaurant offers full table service and The Udder Place is great for food on the go including delicious Jute coffee and creamy ice creams! Picnic benches are situated all around the site.
Well behaved dogs on leads with responsible owners are welcome.
We look foward to seeing you soon!
