Jake’s Playbarn and Mini Farm

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.

Jake’s Mini Farm

There is so much to do here and it’s particularly great for younger children. The whole area that it’s in is also beautiful and surrounded by lakes.

Construction Zone

One of our highlights was the new construction themed zone with several diggers and tractors for them to climb on and slide down. Plus a road track for them to race round in on ride on tractors and loads of toy bricks for them to build with and move around in wheelbarrows. Ashley, like most toddlers, is tractor mad so she LOVED this area!


There are several playgrounds dotted around the farm all suitable for different age groups. The largest playground has some great slides, climbing frames and a pirate ship.

There’s an adventure play area up the top of the boating lake with assault courses for slightly older children, a wobbly bridge and a bird lookout platform up in the trees.

Down in the bottom of the park next to the sandpit is a playground for toddlers with smaller slides and climbing frames.

Plus there’s a fire engine and castle play frame over by the café so you can sit and eat whilst they play.


They have a huge covered sandpit, complete with diggers and full of buckets and spades.

Jumping Pillows

These are always a winner and there’s a couple here side by side.

Ride on Cars

As well as the ride on cars in the construction zone, there’s also a race track with peddle go-karts for older children.

Boating lake

You can hire one of their themed boats and drive round one of the lakes. This is one of only 2 activities that you pay extra for and costs £10 for the boat. The boat fits up to 5 people and you get the boat for 15-20 mins, which to be honest is plenty of time as the boating area is only small.


There is a mini train ride which goes round a small track loop and costs £1pp.

Music zone

There’s a cute little music area with xylophones, music pipes, drums, etc for them to play.

Panning for gold

There’s a water area where your little ones can grab a pan and shake it around looking for ‘gold’.


The farm is home to sheet, goats, alpacas, pigs, mini Shetland ponies, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, chickens, guinea fowl, peacocks and a giant tortoise. There’s animal feed available to buy from a machine up by the sheeps and alpacas.

Food and Drink

The café is open for outdoor dining. They bring your food out to a table outside and call your number for you to go and collect it. The main seating area outside the café is next to the fire engine play area, so it’s great if you want to let the kids play whilst you wait for your food to come.

Here’s a link to their food menu.

You’re also welcome to bring your own picnic and there are loads of picnic benches all over the site.

Jake’s Playbarn

As well as the farm, there’s also a huge indoor soft play at Jake’s. You require separate tickets for this. We haven’t done it ourselves, but it looks great from the quick look I’ve had inside.

The Indoor playbarn is suitable for children up to 11 years old. It is 3 floors high with a 3 lane wave slide, a snake slide, arial glider, ball canons, a mini football court and a brand new interactive games mat! They also have a specific area for under 4’s with climbing areas, a slide, interactive panels and even a baby sensory area.

I think I’ve covered most things, there is honestly so much to do here. We absolutely loved it!

Baby in Bucks Top Tips

Make sure you get there at the beginning of your session as there is so much to do there! If you want to get out on a boat do this early on to ensure you don’t miss out. Take some cash with you so you can pay for the train and boat tickets there and then. Otherwise you need to go to the restaurant to buy a token.
