National Forest Adventure Farm


The National Forest Adventure Farm is a great family day out including both outdoor and indoor fun. You can meet, feed and pet animals and take part in daily events such as milking and pony grooming.

Explore the Funfield with pedal go-karts, crazy golf, giant jumping pillow, mini quad bikes and mini assault course. Inside children (and adults!) will love the gigantic 3000sqm play barn, which houses three levels of exciting adventure play equipment featuring demon drop slides.

In the summer months the Adventure Farm is home to the National Forest Maize Maze. The huge 15 acre maze is one of the largest in Europe featuring a different design each year.

There are special events held throughout the year including Easter Fun, Halloween day-time spooky delights, Screamfest nighttime Halloween scares and Christmas celebrations including Santa’s grotto.

National Curriculum integrated school trips are also offered throughout the year.

This year our maze is celebrating the publication of The Scarecrows' Wedding, the eagerly awaited new picture book from the creators of The Gruffalo and Stick Man. Written in Julia Donaldson's glorious rhyme and illustrated in glowing colour by Axel Scheffler, The Scarecrows' Wedding is a fabulous love story, with drama, humour, originality - and a happy ending! Two scarecrows, Betty O'Barley and Harry O'Hay, are planning the perfect wedding. But wicked scarecrow, Reginald Rake, has other ideas and almost ruins their special day. Harry must become a hero before he and Betty can have the wedding of their dreams. The stunning maze design recreates the front cover of the book, with Betty and Harry standing together in a wheat wreath. The maze will features 3 miles of pathways bridges and viewing towers. As you navigate the maze, take part in the quiz trail and help Harry O'Hay find all the items he needs to create the perfect wedding day. There will also be a mini maze in the shape of a flower. The shorter maze will be ideal for families with younger children, those less able or those who simply fancy a sedate stroll.

Children can dig their own potatoes for free every weekend during September at our annual Spudfest event. The Farm has planted half an acre of Marquis Potatoes. The 11,500 plants should produce up to 10 tonnes of potatoes so there will be plenty for hungry families to unearth. Just pick up a bag and fill it with spuds to boil, mash, bake or chip.
