Advantages: The attraction is safe, clean and enclosed, staff are friendly and hands on!
Disadvantages: Suitable for children up to the age of 8.
Falmer Palmer's has been a place I have spent many safe and happy hours with my children from about the age of 2 years old. It is situated in Organford (Dorset) and is well sign posted. This farm play park is good value for money and provides a whole days fun, both rain and shine. Children can enjoy a range of activities from tractor barn, straw bale fun-slide and climb around the hay or tunnel through the centre! There are two bouncy castles one inside and one outside, a ball pool and gokarts for older children. There is a super woodland walk, although it is not ideal if you are in a wheel chair or have a pushchair! The highlight of any visit is the opportunity to meet the animals whether that means bottle feeding the lambs, trotter time or holding a guinea pig. Learn how cows are milked too!
Staff are friendly and approachable. On a recent busy occassion I lost my then 5 year old. I was very pleased by the swift and thorough missing child process staff followed, we found him happily pedalling around the go-kart track, totally unphased! Children can not get past the desk, out into the carpark unaccompanied too.
There are a number of picnic areas around the campus or food can be purchased from the competively priced cafe-I can strongly recommend the home baked malteser cake! There are cold children's sandwich boxes available or hot meals too. Food is freshly cooked on the premises.
Opening hours are generally 10 am-4.30 but these do fluctuate during the Summer season, see www.farmerpalmers.co.uk for current details. Guidelines state that this attraction is best suited for children under the age of 8.
Summary: Animal fun for the young at heart, fresh air at it's best!
