There is a large free car park and as soon as you step out of your car you feel as if you are in the middle of the countryside and not just 2 minutes away from a large supermarket!
At the visitor centre there is lots going on with a woodland play park for children, plenty of space for a picnic, BBQ's, a cafe selling homemade goods and doddington dairy ice cream to take away and an artificial mini stream where children can paddle.
The park also offers many fantastic walks - you can get maps from the visitor centre or follow the well labelled signposts.
We followed the trail to the farm which is just over a mile. Looking out for the elusive rising sun stag on our way! (We didn't see him today - but did spot plenty of horses)
The farm is free to have a look around, there is a section with small animals such as chickens and rabbits.
Then a small bridge leads to larger farm animals such as horses, donkeys and pigs.
We were lucky that the pigs came really close today and we counted 7 teeny piglets which were very cute.
The farm also has a farm shop which sells products from the farm. You can't get more locally sourced than from here.
What I can't get over is that Farm parks are now charging as much as £10 per person to enter yet this place is FREE!
