Toddler Time at Pennywell Farm

Join us every Tuesday in term-time for lots of fun for you and your little ones!


If you're stuck for things to do with your little one, we've got you covered! Come along and try our Toddler Time here at Pennywell Farm, every Tuesday during term time. 

The farm is full of toddler-friendly activities for you to get involved in!

A special visit from Georgia at 'Little Explorers' makes the Toddler Time session extra special. Little Explorers provide hands-on musical play, singing, movement, and importantly lots of fun! 

Meet, greet, and hand-feed our adorable animals and join in with a new hands-on activity every 30 minutes - you and your little one could bottle feed a goat kid for the first time, cheer and clap for our racing ferrets and pigs, walk a goat, pamper a pony and so much more!

There are plenty of play areas dotted around the farm, including slides, sandpits, a soft play pit, and a bouncy castle especially for under 5s. You will also find a dedicated Toddler Village where your little one can practice their driving skills on our ride-on tractors and learn through play with our new interactive play area!

We have two FREE Farm Rides which are perfect for your little ones. Hop aboard the Rainbow Railway and 'Choo-Choo' around the track! Then take a bumpy ride down to Old Macdonald's Farm on our Tractor & Trailer ride - fun for all the family! 

Our famous Pet & Piggy cuddles are the perfect opportunity for you and your Toddler to get close to some of our smaller animals. Help them to build their confidence around these friendly creatures - stroking a soft Guinea pig, cuddling a cute piggy and hugging a fluffy rabbit are the perfect sensory activities!

So what are you waiting for? If you are looking for something to keep your little ones entertained, look no further than Toddler Time at Pennywell Farm, every Tuesday during term time! Book your tickets now.

"Best farm we have visited!"

"What an excellent day my family and I had today at Pennywell! Friendly staff and very cute animals. Piggy cuddles was so fun for the children and the tractor rides were great. The coffee was lovely, the farm shop reasonably priced and cute bits. Loads to see and do, plenty of areas to amuse kids and plenty of seating for picnics. We loved it and booked our season pass, can't wait to use throughout summer. Best farm we have visited - highly recommend!"
