OUR VISIT TO ASH END FARM

|
Hello everyone,
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend? Today Amelia and went out for a walk and jumped in lots of puddles, now we are catching up on Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom, a new favourite! I noticed that this post managed to get to the bottom of my drafts and can't believe that I forgot to publish it, what a doughnut! So here goes...

A couple of weeks ago we arranged to visit some family in Rugby and we all wanted to do something with the little ones. We decided to take a trip to Ash End Children's Farm. I mean where else can you  go on an egg hunt, feed a lamb, ride a tractor or jump on an inflatable pillow all in one place! My husband and I particular liked the pillow, as you probably could imagine!
The entrance ticket entitles children to take home an egg, ride a tractor and they could even sit on a pony. It also included a bucket of feed for the sheep and goats, our bucket ended up being tipped out for 'Bing' bunny in the rabbit enclosure.


We were told about all the activities that we could do throughout the day and there were just so many of them, so we had out work cut out. But before we could decide where to go first Amelia ran off and found the ducks, birds and geese - she loves ducks.
Then we went to see the lambs, they were so adorable. But when the sheep made noises Amelia ran away to hide behind a bale of hay. Okay now I know I must be the meanest mum in the world but I couldn't help but giggle at her especially because the only way out was going by the noisy sheep. Even after I said that it was Susie Sheep.

Even this sheep was unacceptable
I don't know what was wrong with Amelia but she cried at most of the animals so we stopped for some lunch. There was a small café where you can buy hot and cold food but there were also a few picnic tables outside which would be great if you bought your own food. After lunch time Amelia was a different child she is soooo like her Daddy she gets 'Hangry'! Our godson was also more chilled out after lunchtime.
After lunchtime and no longer hangry.
We went through the pig enclosure quickly due to the pong but I adore pigs there is just something about them. These piglets...just look at them...they are so adorable and were only born in March!  
It was Bing Bunny time and this is where we lost our bucket of feed and a breadstick over the enclosure! Then lots of rabbits in baskets made their way around the children and Amelia was very eager to get her hands on them. I was very pleased with Amelia because she was very patient and gentle with them but she didn't like it when they were put back in the enclosure - I think we may have to get her one...one day!

It was time for the egg hunt but first we went to a chat about chickens. Daddy sat with Amelia while mummy was with the buggy and camera all I could hear was 'Chick, Chick, Chick' just look at her face. :)
 

Amelia wanted more than one!
Time for a very bumpy ride on the tractor for everyone. Nanny and Grandad tried to get out of this one, but I wouldn't let them after all they could help the grand children pick out the scarecrows. After the tractor ride we decided to make our way to the Big Play Barn just as we were leaving Amelia see some lambs being taken into a room. We got to feed the lambs and have a cuddle - which Amelia took literally!  

Before heading off home we did go to the Big Play Barn but I didn't take any photos because my husband and I were having too much fun on the inflatable pillow. Even though there was an age restriction up to eleven years old we still had a go, that was until Grandad came on to out bounce everyone before staff came over to us, whoops!

If you are looking for a day out with the family and you are in Warwickshire then make sure you visit Ash End Farm, you won't be disappointed!

  1. When I read a post like this I wonder if we should open our farm for day visits too. I love how interactive this looks and who can resist bottle feeding lambs we have two at Coombe Mill on three bottles a day it is never a chore. Looks like you had a wonderful visit #KCACOLS

    1. I couldn't actually believe she was being such a grump because she was hungry though. Afterward I was giggling to myself though because she is exactly like her Daddy! Thank you so much for your lovely comments and for stopping by!!!

  10. Looks like fun! They all love ducks, don't they! We've recently discovered & become obsessed with Ben & Holly here, too - I'm very pleased, as it's the first programme obsession they've had that I think is hilarious. I love it! #fartglitter
