When we arrived at Little Jacks Farm (July 2018), we went the cafe to have lunch before we went to look around the farm. There was plenty of places to sit and some tables had enough space to park the pram if you need to. They have loads of highchairs and I managed to count at least 10 Ikea highchairs and around 4 wooden ones. There is outside seating but you’ll have to pay your entrance fee to the farm before you can access the additional seating as they have a gate meaning you can’t get through without paying. The menu was brilliant with lots of choices including a kid’s menu (main, pudding and soft drink for £4.95) and a baby menu with fish fingers or sausages for £2.25. The price of food was very reasonable but I wasn’t too impressed with my ‘baguette’ when it arrived as it was just a large finger roll and the coffee came from a machine which always make me a little sad.
The cafe has a toilet with a drop down changing table and step stool. It’s a big room so is big enough to take the pushchair in with you if you need to. There’s also additional baby change the other side of the gate.
After we’d finished eating and paid the entrance fee for the farm (adults and children over 2 £5.25, under 2s are free), I was blown away by how much play equipment there is. They have swings, trim trails, ride on cars, miniature goals and more slides than I could count. Below are photos of the different areas they have for outdoor play.
There is also some indoor play equipment with sandpits, role play areas and a small soft play area with a slide and a ball pit. It was a really warm day when we were there and I managed about 5 minutes in here before I began to melt and had to leave.
If all of that play equipment isn’t enough, they even have an indoor soft play area with your usual climbing equipment, slides and ball pits. In the same room, there’s a huuuuuge amount of toys, a role play kitchen, a craft table, an area for babies, seating/tables, a TV and sofas.
If all of the play areas aren’t enough, you can buy bags of feed to feed the animals on Little Jack’s Farm (different bags depending on whether you want to feed the 2-legged or 4-legged animals). They have goats, chickens, pigs, ponies, emus, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs and some birds.
I can’t get over how many play areas there are at Little Jack’s – you can spend hours here!
