Hey folks! It’s Angus again! It’s been a bit wet here, but we don’t let this wet weather hold us back. We are having so much fun in the park this holiday with lots of indoor and outdoor activities taking place we don’t care what the weather is doing.
Get out of the rain for some indoor fun and try the pirate ship. Jump aboard for adventures galore, complete with docks and prison… arrrgghh! Plus we’ve picnic tables for the grown-ups to enjoy a cuppa from the Tractor Takeaway while watching the kids run up and down the gang plank or digging around in the sand searching for hidden treasure!
Come and visit the cuddly bunnies, squealing guinea pigs, gerbils, skinny pig, pygmy hedgehogs, chirping finches and budgies in the animal nursery. Phew… there are so many to see and cuddle. And keep an eye out for the stick insects too… they are so, well…. Sticky 😉
Our indoor Exhibition Hall and Hall of Transport are the perfect place to step back in time. Rural life, nostalgia and memorabilia from times gone by are showcased in our museum along with farming technology from the Victorian to Modern eras. Take a trip down memory lane, or learn a thing or two about years gone by in our very own Victorian street. Pop into the dress shop, game keeper’s cottage, ironmongers, dairy and even the pub (just don’t leave Dad there!)
And for the little (and not so little) transport lovers, we’ve got the South West’s largest collections of massive steam engines, immaculate vintage cars & vehicles. See if you can spot our celebrity vehicles which have appeared ITV’s Mr Selfridge, Downton Abbey and BBC’s Parade’s End.
Once you’ve done all of that, it’s back to the soft play. Little ones can bounce, slide and climb until their hearts content in my very own soft play area the Vintage Garage Soft Play. Perfect for under 7’s and with picnic benches for the grown ups to watch and enjoy a well-earned rest.
And for the under 12’s our all weather Fun Farm Frenzy complete with ball pool, drop slide, bouncy castle and even a table tennis table is all undercover!
And we’re not done yet! Get up close and personal with the larger animals in our Pet Centre – close enough to pet, feed and cuddle them! Perfect for the whole family whatever the weather.
And, if you’ve not met me yet, pop along to the undercover Barnyard theatre. At 2pm everyday and i’ll be there for some animal racing fun – International Total Wipeout Ferret Racing, such a laugh for kids and adults too.
And if you don’t mind a spot of rain on your head, of course there are all the other parts of the park too…. Take a look at our interactive map.
Happy Holidays, whatever the weather 😉
