  • We would highly recommend a visit to Mary Arden's farm in Wilmcote, Warwickshire
  • It was interesting watching them hand wash the clothes and chop the fire wood
  • Our two boys loved the animals they had pigs, cows, sheep, and a falconry, we even had a ride on the cart pulled by ox's which was an experience as none of us had ever done this before
  • Our three and a half year old loves animals and he loved to get up close and touch them and I thought he would be a bit nervous, but he got stuck in and really enjoyed himself

      We would highly recommend a visit to Mary Arden’s farm in Wilmcote, Warwickshire. Wilmcote is only three miles from Stratford upon Avon. Mary Anderson farm was recommended to us by a friend so we gave it a go.

      The farm is a real working farm from Shakespeare time and it has different events and activates for everyone to do. When we entered it felt we were stepping back into the 1570s.

      They cook over an open fire, we all got stuck in and helped care for the animals and Kurt and I helped out on the fields which was


      good. It was interesting watching them hand wash the clothes and chop the fire wood.

      Our two boys loved the animals they had pigs, cows, sheep, and a falconry, we even had a ride on the cart pulled by ox’s which was an experience as none of us had ever done this before. The flower garden was very pretty and well worth a look at.

      As we was not sure if you could get food there we took a picnic with us, there was a lovely picnic area and next to this was a adventure playground which the kids love. When we ...


      • were walking round we did find a café so we stopped and had a cup of coffee which was lovely and the staff where really friendly.

        There was also a pond and an enchanted trail to follow but we missed this out. The children loved the donkey rides and they went on twice.

        We brought ourselves a treat from the souvenir shop. We arrived at Mary Arden’s farm at ten o clock and we left at about five so we had a full day there.

        We are hoping to return to Mary Arden’s farm at Christmas as they do a Santa’s grotto. We

        had a great day out and I would say it is a fun day out for all ages.

        Our three and a half year old loves animals and he loved to get up close and touch them and I thought he would be a bit nervous, but he got stuck in and really enjoyed himself. It was also interesting seeing different farm animals as we don’t have animals of our own and kurt learnt where milk, butter, cheese and vegetables come from as he just thought they came from a supermarket and did not know how they got there, so the day was educational as well.
