Ash End House Children’s Farm

by BecSorby (follow)
A fantastic farm for the kids with lots to do for families!

Located less than 25 minutes drive from the Birmingham City Centre is Ash End House Children’s Farm, a lovely place to meet and feed lots of different farm animals.

Not only can you get up close to the animals, but there is so much for families to do, including a dedicated Birds of Prey Centre, an allotment garden, an outdoor play and even a Big Play Barn on-site! Here is a rundown of the broad range of activities for families.

Meet and Feed the Animals

Ash End House Children’s Farm houses lots of farm animals, and upon entry, each child is provided with a bucket of animal feed to dish out. The farm has goats and kids that you can bottle-feed during spring and early summer, plus bunnies, rabbits, sheep and ducks.

There are also hens and chicks and families can take part in the farm’s chat to a chick session in the hatchery, which is a chance to cuddle a baby chick or duckling…too cute! Plus, the kids can find and take home an egg from the hen nest boxes and are fully supervised by staff. The farm also houses reindeer, alpacas, cows and Tamworth pigs. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of the mamma pig feeding her piglets!

The Birds of Prey Centre

Provided by Eclipse Falconry, Ash End’s Birds of Prey Centre is another popular attraction. Eclipse Falconry are specialists in caring for and flying the birds, and on most days the centre will hold flying displays. There are even opportunities on some occasions to have a go at holding the birds!

Shire Horse Centre

The Shire Horse Centre is a favourite attraction of the farm. You can see the shire horses up close, and you might even spot a foal! The farm also has ponies, with an opportunity for every child visitor to have a sit on a pony!

Creepy Critter Barn

Come and see the impressive collection of insects, spiders, reptiles, snakes and amphibians. The centre places a huge emphasis on visitors getting close to the creepy critters with keepers present.

Allotment Garden

The Allotment Garden provides a quiet area away from the busy farm. In school holidays the farm offers Allotment Days for children to learn more about gardening.

Outdoor Play

Along with visiting the animals on the farm, families can also have a play at the outdoor play area. There are three play areas to explore plus a giant bouncing pillow!

Big Play Barn

The Big Play Barn is separate to the farm but is located on the farm site. You can visit the play barn or the farm separately, or buy a multi-ticket to get you entry into both. The Big Play Barn is open daily from 9:30am to 6:30pm and has a huge multi-storey play structure, slides, walkways and areas for younger children. There are also outdoor activities.

Birthday Parties

The farm offers a range of birthday parties to suit every age. All parties include a tour around the farm, party activities and a £5 voucher for the birthday child to use in the farm shop. There are so many themes to choose from, which are noted below:
