Farmyard fun at Ardress

Visiting the chickens

Planning some family time with the kids this summer and not quite sure what to do? At Ardress we’ve got summer sorted – read on for our top things to do in July and August.

We’ve got everything you need to keep the kids entertained, whatever the weather. Just bring these essentials and we’ll do the rest:

  • Waterproof coats and wellies (because our weather isn’t that reliable!)
  • Filled picnic basket (don’t worry, we’ll supply the rug!)
  • Camera (to capture those unforgettable moments)
  • The kids (because it’s for them, after all!)

All sorted? Okay, here we go...

Grab an adventure scrapbook from reception and have a go at completing your 50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4. Make a daisy chain on the lawns at the front of the house, roll down a really big hill, make a grass trumpet and more. We’ve got a great play area and lots of walks to run around on too, so the wellies are a must.

No farm would be complete without a John Deere tractor and we’ve got some little versions to keep the little farmers entertained. We’ve also got farm jigsaws, farmhouse play and other activities. We’ve even got a few magazines for Mum and Dad to catch up on the latest news, just bring a flask of coffee, sit back and relax while the kids entertain themselves.

Ardress farmyard is full of little nooks and crannies to have family fun – have a go at milking the cow and feed our hungry chickens. They love to see our visitors and are always waiting to say hello.

So come on, pack up the car (don’t forget the kids!) and come and visit Ardress this summer for farmyard, family fun. Make sure to upload your summer memories on our Facebook page.
