Overview

Visit Park Hall Countryside Experience, the amazing National award winning farm park with lots of animal fun, action and adventure for the kids. There are regular hands-on animal activities, and each day there is a spectacular pig racing event, even try your hand at milking a cow! At Park Hall the kids can play till they’re worn out, try out the two massive indoor play barns with a new ‘Demon Drop Slide’ and bouncy castles. Discover the great outdoors where there are adventure courses, woodland walks and a picturesque lake. Kids can even ‘learn to drive’ in electric cars or landrovers. If you love science checkout the Science Illusion Zone. There’s a Victorian School, Iron Age Roundhouse and Welsh Guards Museum too. A great day out for all the family.

Amazing attraction for families. We're members and visit regularly and my toddler never tires of it. Good in rain or shine as there are plenty of activities in and out. Nice cafe. Wonderful staff. Entry is very reasonable if you buy an annual pass.
