While we were on holiday in Pembrokeshire this week we popped into Folly Farm. Folly Farm located in South Wales, combines a petting zoo, a soft play, playgrounds and a small zoo of bigger animals. Our visit began in the Jolly Barn, filled with pigs, donkeys, giant rabbits and other farmyard animals. I loved watching the giant rabbits hop about. Moozles and Dubz especially loved petting the lovely ferret.
Then we headed over to see the giraffes and the zebras. They have a viewing platform, which is especially nice when the giraffes walk next to it and you can look into their big, beautiful eyes. Next were the Humboldt penguins. We caught the penguin talk, which was very popular and very interesting. After that we looked at the lions, before heading into the soft play for lunch. They have made the soft play look like an outdoor tree house, with lots of climbing and sliding. There is also two soft sections, one for children under six and another for children between two and four.
Folly Farm also has a vintage funfair, with lots of cute rides. And as it is covered, it is suitable all-year. There are also several playgrounds, and we enjoyed most of them. We saw the pirate ship when we were leaving, but had to make sure the kids did not see it as they were already pretty exhausted. I liked that there were loads of outdoor benches, so that you could bring a picnic (as we did). Beware, there are lots of seagulls looking for scraps. Have a look at my vlog below for more of our fun day at Folly Farm.
Folly Farm opens at 10am every day. Tickets cost £10.95 for each adult, £9.95 for each child. Children two and under are free.
We were given complimentary tickets to Folly Farm for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
