Down at the Farm

16th July 2013

My kids were like pigs in swill when I took them Down at the Farm in Houghton.

We've been many times before for visits and children's birthday parties, which they cater for at the Houghton site off Stoneygate Lane, just off the A690.

When I asked my 2, their favourite part of their visits to Down on the Farm they said the big bouncy cushion and getting to hold the little rabbits and guinea pigs.

The farm is also registered as a licenced zoo and has been home to a great range of world animals, including reindeers, racoons and llamas, who parents of young ones will see a similarity to 'Nuzzle and Scratch' from CBeebies.

But it's not just animals to enjoy Down at the Farm, but also some play time to help tire out the over excited kids, with a wood and rope climbing park, bouncy cushion, giant sand pit and rides on the tractor or bumpy barrel train.

There's so much to do which is why we've been so many times as maybe you'll find one visit isn't enough to fit it all in.
