Farms, Animal Attractions, Family Days Out
Farms and animal attractions make great days out for the whole family
The Cornish Cyder FarmPenhallow Truro Cornwall TR4 9LW
Kim Lewis is an author and illustrator of charming children’s books all about rural life and we have some original artwork and transcripts from her books, including Floss, Emma's Lamb, Just Like Floss and Shepherd's Boy. Children will love following the Little Baa trail round the farm, dressing up as a shepherd, and looking for Floss's mischievous puppies hiding in the maize maze.
Kim visits the farm on 2nd August to sign copies of her books. Other farm activities include regular talks on our livestock and the opportunity to meet our newly hatched out chicks and ducklings. Additionally, the farm is hosting the Fun Dog Show on 10th August and the English Country Weekend on the August bank holiday weekend.
Also at Tatton, children will have great fun in the gardens with the maze and trail to follow, there is also a family trail in the mansion and of course the adventure playground to let off any excess energy. Pick up a Nature Trail leaflet while you are here and enjoy an ice-cream from the Tuck Shop while you explore. There are also car shows, outdoor theatre and Viking Sunday to entertain families this summer: check out the website for full details.
