What a brilliant, well thought out, family-day-out attraction. We knew Walby Farm Park had won awards, but going for the day as a family made us see why. Our group had all ages with us from toddler to teenagers, parents and grandparents and everybody had lots of fun. We'd highly reccommend a day out here.
There's lots to see and do, especially if the sun is shining like it was when we were there. There's plenty of indoor activites too though if its raining outside, like the playbarn; Cumbria's largest indoor play area - with huge slides, soft play obstacle courses and ball pools. The animal barn is all undercover too for seeing lots of different farm animals, petting the smaller ones and we even watched a ferret race! Going in Spring time was perfect as there were lots of babies: lambs, kids, ducklings and chicks. Outside we enjoyed cheering on the sheep in a sheep race, zip-lining, trampolining, swinging, go-karting and playing in the sand.
Their cafe is very reasonably priced and we all enjoyed a delicious lunch with excellent service. The whole Walby Team were friendly and helpful too.
If you're hoping to visit, check their website for activites and events as there's always something going on that you might want to plan on being there for.
