Bocketts Farm is a working family farm set in the Surrey countryside. With a combination of animal and play areas, indoors and out, it’s always a fun day.
Last time we visited POD was a little wary of the animals in the stables at first. On this occasion she wanted to know what each horse was called, what it was doing and what it ate. There were goats nearby and whilst they were a bit to lively for her, we were optimistic this was the day she’d feed animals herself.
In the Big Animal Barn, POD climbed onto a step as she had on our last visit to see a sow and her piglets. Much to her excitement also in the Big Animal Barn were sheep, lambs, alpacas, goats, a kid and cows.
Having seen Daddy and other children feed the animals, POD decided she’d like to have a go too. With animal feed in an outstretched palm, she watched in amazement as a sheep licked it off her hand.
We thought once she’d done it they’d be no stopping her and we were right!
Before long she was more than happy to be surrounded by animals.
Outside there were slides to go down,
brilliant new play areas to explore
and swings to test.
There was just time to bounce on the inflatable jumping pillows
before heading to Little Hoppington. There POD stroked a rabbit, a guinea pig, a chicken and a goat.
After lunch there was fun to be had milking cows, driving tractors and jumping on a trampoline. POD spotted the indoor soft play area too!
We missed seeing the racing pigs in action on this occasion. They were enjoying a doze when we passed them.
POD was excited at the prospect of seeing more goats
and Mummy wanted to have a look at the deer.
Back at the Big Animal Barn, we said hello to all the animals we’d already met.
POD was lucky enough to hold a two day old lamb
and Daddy couldn’t resist either.
This day will be remembered for POD loving the animals and this one keeping a close eye on Mummy!
