Family Time at Wimpole this May half term

Children enjoying their visit to Wimpole Home Farm

Come rain or shine, there’s plenty to do at Wimpole this May half-term!

The days are getting warmer and the Estate has come to life, the little lambs are out in the park, hopping and skipping to keep up with the flock; the cattle are also out enjoying the lush grass the Spring rain and sunshine has brought.  It’s a great time to get outside and discover what nature has to offer.

Wild Welly Walk

Go exploring on our Wild Welly Walk and at the same time you can start ticking off your list of 50 Things to do before you're 11¾ at Wimpole

Create your own adventure

A few 50 things to do before you're 11¾ more you can tackle whilst you’re here . . .

Build a den

Head to the Woodland Belts, grab a few fallen branches and sticks to build yourself a natural hiding place.

Climb a huge hill
Not many of these in Cambridgeshire, but we’ve a few hilly bits in the parkland to choose from . . . .

and when you get to the top roll down the hill – just watch out for the cow pats!

Visit a Farm

Check out our daily events, from meeting the shire to grooming a donkey, you can even have a go at milking a bucket!

  • Wait for the noise they make - have a go at pig feeding
  • Stroke a gentle giant - meet a Wimpole Shire horse
  • Have they gone to sleep yet? Daisy and Clementine are very relaxed when you groom them.
  • They have very soft fur - come and meet a rabbit

And no visit to the farm is complete until you’ve jumped, swung, slide, slipped and landed at our woodland playground, plus mini tractors for our smaller visitors.
