Lambing At Willows!

Lambing At Willows!

It’s February half term for us as of 3.15 this afternoon and if you’re like us then you’ll be looking to fill the days with as much fun as possible while the kiddos are off school! You need look no further than Willows Activity Farm in St Albans for they have, as always, plenty on offer in their wonderfully vibrant fun farm full of animals, soft play, fair ground rides and more – it really is a whole day out with bags of room for laughter!

We’ve long been fans of the farm and make the journey there regularly throughout the year, even though we now live a 2 hour drive away – it really is THAT good and yet I don’t think, in all our visits, we have ever made it to their lambing week! At varying points in the year they go all out and February half term is no different with their lambing week (15th – 23rd) and THIS is the year we absolutely won’t miss it and will be there with bells on to catch all the cuteness of a farm about to explode into spring!

Baby lambs… Oh my!

There will be live lambing, newborn lamb bottle feeding demonstrations and a full day’s programme of fleecy fun for a baa-rilliant day out.

Visitors can watch as the smallest members of the flock arrive, supervised by Tuck the Shepherd, who will be carrying out daily bottle feeding demonstrations in the Willows Lambing Marquee.

There will also be (on top of all the regular fun):

Arts & Crafts

Children can create ‘ewe-nique’ arts and crafts hosted in the Arts and Crafts Marquee.

Indoor Play

For entertaining smaller guests, take a trip to Cotton-Tail Village or Woolly Jumpers Play Barn for some imaginative, indoor play, or meet animal friends including goats, guinea pigs and rabbits in the Farmyard for bundles of enjoyment.

Live Shows

Exciting live performances will take place daily in the Peter Rabbit Theatre while characters including Squirrel Nutkin, Lily Bobtail, Benjamin Bunny, Cotton-Tail, and of course Peter Rabbit himself will be ready to meet and greet fans every day throughout the event.

This year, special guest Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep, and will be starring in a brand-new show to find her flock.

Children can enjoy the Peter Rabbit™ Adventure Playground, where they can explore the Lily Bobtail Nature discovery area or get creative at the Jeremy Fisher Music Pond.

The fun continues with ice skating on the magical synthetic ice rink for a full day of wholesome fun.

Can’t wait for the skating as this is one of the things which had to give on our Christmas visit. We just couldn’t pack it in so will make it a priority this time. That’s my best advice with Willows actually as it is jam packed and very often we don’t get around to everything, if you can’t make a whle weekend of it and do two days then pick the things which are at the top of your agenda, do those first and anything else will be a bonus. People ask me if it’s worth the money whenever we go saying ‘surely it’s just a farm?’ and I always tell them it most certainly is worth every penny. I don’t drive for a 4 hour round trip for just any old thing, this is the real deal!

There is always fun to be had at Willows come rain or shine – with lots of indoor fun to warm up in-between the outside stuff!
