What will you do first?

Visit our wonderful animals in the animal barn, the Piglets Maternity Ward is a must see to get up close and watch the new born piglets nestling into mum!  Listen to our animal handlers talk about how we look after all our furry friends!  Jump for joy on the bouncy pillows, we have a dedicated bouncy pillow just for the under 5’s that all toddlers love!  Find where the fairies live down the Fairy Tale Trail.

Take a tractor and trailer ride up to our re-vamped Indoor Play Barn.  Adults can grab a coffee and a snack whilst the children get to play on our super new play equipment.  The Indoor Play Barn is perfect for when the weather is a little chilly.  Scramble over our Olym-Pig Assault Course or take a swing at mini golf.  For all the budding little farmers there is the tractor driving area and Dig and Play sand construction zone.

There is so much to see and do here during the week at Piglets!
