It’s February Frolics at Willows Farm

Yes, we were back at Willows Farm this half term for some outdoor fun!

February Frolics at Willows is lambing season. All the lambs are being born and visitors can witness it happening (if they’re lucky) and watch them being bottle fed.

The lambing marquees were where all the action was taking place. Inside there were open areas for the lambs who were a couple of days old, and pens for birthing. It was fascinating.

It’s one of our favourite events at  Willows, and even though it was cold, the kids really don’t feel it when they’re having so much fun. As always, there was  plenty of outdoor fun to be had…

Of course there’s plenty of indoor fun to be had too. The play areas inside are rather extensive, with a huge soft play for kids of all ages but there’s also Toddler Town – a make believe ‘street’ full of play houses for the younger ones, which is amazing. We warmed up in here a number of times before heading out again!

No visit would be complete without visiting some of the other animals… holding the guinea pigs is a must for the children and there’s also other baby animals, not just lambs! Here is a four day old calf with his Mum!

We ventured out here late in the day when the barn wasn’t quite so busy. Most people had gone home which was great for us!

Another fab time was had at Willows! The February Frolics event is on until the end of the weekend but fun at Willows can be had at any time.

  1. Willows Farm looks like a great place to go and explore, it’s perfect with lambing season in full swing and plenty of other activities too. It’s great that the kids got to see all the baby farm animals and got to see the farm at the best time of year. It sounds like they’re really thought the site out and have plenty of space for everyone to have a good day without feeling too packed together. Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.

  2. Looks like you all had a lovely time
