Beale Park is an outdoor wildlife park in Berkshire with loads of fun play areas. We’ve been visiting Beale Park ever since Ashley could walk as it’s brilliant for toddlers! We love it for the miniature railway, animals, paddling pool and the brilliant Little Tikes play area. Recently they’ve been added even more attractions and animals to the park so it’s now even better.
Today we had the cutest visit to Nathan’s Farm in Chalfont St Giles as there were baby animals everywhere! Nathan’s Farm is a small family run farm with reindeer, sheep, chickens, pigs, goats and rhea, to name a few. At the moment there are loads of lambs on the farm which you can help bottle feed! Plus tiny piglets, puppies, chicks and a foal that was only a few days old.
Jake’s Playworld has been a great find this month and somewhere we’ll definitely be visiting again. Jake’s is split into two – the playbarn and mini farm. The playbarn is a giant indoor soft play across 3 levels and The mini farm is all outdoors and has a huge range of activities. Reopening on 12th April, we can’t wait to go back.
Following on from the list of places to visit in August, I’ve put together even more ideas for days out in and around Bucks. The guide includes places that have reopened their doors this month, brand new activities, plenty of indoor options for rainy days and a few others that I think you’ll love.
Yesterday we visited the Bucks Goat Centre for this first time and had such a great morning! It’s perfect for a spontaneous trip out as you don’t have to book tickets in advance, which at the moment is rare.
WOW! This place is amazing! We had the best time here and loved it so much we went twice in one week! There is so much to do for children of every age including a farm, splash park, loads of playgrounds, jumping pillows, a miniature railway, a dinosaur trail and more. The whole park is very scenic and is centred around a big lake in the middle.
As more places are starting to open up I thought it would be useful to share some ideas for places to visit this August in Bucks and surrounding areas.
Chobham Adventure Farm is all about the ADVENTURE! Whilst they do have a animal barn for us the main attractions were the play zones. They have two large adventure playgrounds for different ages, two giant jumping pillows (again for different ages) and a huge sandpit.
We had such an amazing time at Odds Farm this week. We’ve been a couple of times before but this is the first time that she’s been at the right age (she is just over 2) to absolutely LOVE it! There is so much to do at Odds Farm and they have a great mix of both animal experiences and play areas.
Who knew there were fields full of alpacas in Great Missenden? There is a lovely short walk you can take through the alpaca fields which you can combine with cake and coffee at Peterley Manor Farm for the perfect afternoon!
