Odds Farm Park Review

A few days ago we hopped in the car, 
said goodbye to the hectic pace of London life, 
and 50 minutes later we found ourselves 
immersed in the beautiful English countryside, 
surrounded by the most adorable farm animals. 


in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. 

Odds Farm's Animals 

We were delighted to see that the animals 
seem to live a very happy life. 

They live in big enclosures, allowing plenty of space, 
the farm is very clean 
and the staff seems to genuinely love the animals.

In addition to that, 
being approved by the Rare Breed Survival Trust, 
Odds Farm Park is home to some very rare breeds.

You can see the biblical Jacob sheep, 
the pristine British white cow, the endangered Bagot goat,  
and the adorable Lottie, 
an Eriskay pony, a species classed as critical.

Odds Farm's Activities 

There are so many activities for children of all ages. 

Start your visit from the barn,  
where you can feed and pet hens, sheep, 
goats {with very long ears}, and the cutest rabbits. 

The staff holds demonstrations, 
like cow milking, egg collecting and bottle feeding lambs, 
giving the little ones the chance to learn more about farm life. 

Then head outside where the kids can do some go karts, 
ride mini tractors, play crazy golf, watch sheep racing 
and even climb on a real tractor for a tour of the farm 
{this was the Toddler's favourite}.

Odds Farm's Playgrounds 

And, if all those activities are not enough for your little ones, 
you'll be glad to hear that Odds Farm Park 
has four outdoor play areas 
and a huge indoor soft play area. 

The new sand and water play area is brilliant 
and the children enjoyed getting wet sand all over them 
{just remember to pack extra clothes}, 
the slides are high and super fast 
and the baby playground has cute wooden play equipment.

All in all, Odds Farm Park is a great place for children 
to learn about animals while playing and enjoying themselves. 

The Toddler was ecstatic after petting sheep & rabbits 
and keeps asking when are we going back to the farm. 

And what is really important when visiting places with animals: 
at Odds Farm Park children can see happy animals,   
that are well taken care of and that live in their natural habitats. 

In a nutshell: a great rural outing for all the family.

Odds Farm Park, Adults £12.50, Children over two £11.50. 
There is a cafe & restaurant & plenty of picnic tables if you pack your own lunch. 
They also have year round special events, check them out before you visit.

  1. This is lovely! We live in London too and this seems like an ideal day trip for when Baby D is a toddler. Thanks for sharing on #britmumsreviews
