Piglets Adventure Farm| Review

Rachel, one of our writers headed to Piglets Adventure Farm over June Half term. It sounds like they had an absolutely amazing time and I am so happy they had a family fun day out. Find out what Rachel and family thought of there visit below.


We travelled to Piglet’s Adventure Farm near York over the weekend without much

idea what to expect. It turned out to be one of those rare perfect days out. We’re all

still glowing from a relaxed, fun-filled day. And it’s no surprise with a circus, a beach,

a farm, an adventure playground, an enchanting fairy trail, and a tractor ride to a

hidden play barn, all on one site. All beautifully designed and maintained,

immaculately clean, and run by lovely staff who went out of their way to make it a

gorgeous day.


We arrived with two famished boys so started with food. There are several places

you can stop for food with a nice variety of hot and cold options. We went with pizzas

and excellent curly fries (two pizzas was enough to split between two adults and our

5- and 2-year-olds).

Outdoor play equipment

Once fuelled up the boys were off. They made a beeline for the giant bouncy pillows,

then on to the outdoor play equipment. There’s so much to do with a nice range for

older and younger kids.


We could easily have spent the entire day at Piglets’ beach. It’s a beautiful sandy

area with water play, a dinosaur dig, and beach huts you can rent for the day.


Next stop – the circus! Both boys agreed this was one of the highlights. The tent was

gorgeous – blacked out with a ceiling awash in twinkly lights. A one-man show, the

tricks were brilliant and the banter perfectly pitched. The circus isn’t on all year but

will be back this summer (dates below).

Fairy trail

After an ice cream break we went on the fairy trail. In sun-dappled woods with little

bells in the trees, talking owls, and magical fairy voices, it was utterly charming and



We popped to the farm for one of their timed animal encounters, and it’s honestly the

loveliest farm we’ve been to in the area. It’s clean and spacious and the animals look

so relaxed and happy. One member of their team took 15 minutes to chat with my 5-

year-old about the animals and another showed him how they collect eggs from the

chickens. Currently reading this over my shoulder, he’s asked me to add ‘and we

loved it so, so much.’

Tractor and play barn

Final stop was the tractor ride – a relaxing 5-10-minute ride which drops you at the

indoor play barn. While it’s not a massive soft play it was relaxed and spacious and

has two brilliant slides.

Top tips

- If you fancy a beach hut they book up quickly so book online in advance.

- There is a little shop where you can buy beach toys but you can also bring

your own or use some of the toys scattered around for anyone to use.

- While there are some indoor bits, the vast majority is outdoors. If it’s a special

day keep an eye on the weather so you can enjoy everything on offer.

- Prices vary depending on when you go, with more affordable midweek options

and special offers including a summer pass (£30 for unlimited entry from 20

July – 30 September).


Honestly, they’re all highlights.

- Gorgeous sandy beach with water play and a dino dig

- Enchanting fairy trail

- Giant bouncy pillows

- Ride ons and play equipment

- Barrel rides

- Indoor play barn with brilliant slides

- Charming farm with animal encounters

In addition to the normal activities, the summer promises:

* Foam parties

* Water wars

* Maize maze challenge

* Dino dig and gem mining

* 20 July – 4 August Knights, Dragons, and Princesses

* 5-18 August Dino Adventure

* 19 August – 2 September the Circus is back!

Piglets is beautifully maintained, can easily fill a day and, if our experience is any

indication, is a relaxed day out for the entire family. There’s so much to do in a space

easily navigable for little legs, and we never felt rushed or stressed. While bustling it

never felt overcrowded. It was a magical day and the highlight of our half term.
