Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
Smithills Open Farm encloses 28 hectares (70 acres) of English countryside, offering a petting zoo with cows, pigs, goats, and even deer, pythons, spiders, and stick insects. Some animals may be less fond of petting than others. When you’ve all had your fill of creatures great and small, the kids can jump in the bouncy castle or climb around the adventure playground. If you need another feel of something furry, stick around for the animals' feeding times or the cow milking. If your team of animal lovers will get hungry, try taking a picnic or sampling the products at the cafe with indoor and outdoor seating.

  • Smithhill farm is great place for kids. Me and my kids really enjoyed the day. Plenty of animals to see and play area as well. The rain couldn't dampen their day lol. I would go again 😀
  • We had a great day there is so much to do, whether you want to look at all the animals, go on the tractor and donkey rides or let the kids play at the playground and bouncy castle. Itd definitely worth a visit and reasonable prices to.
  • Excellent place to visit with children Friendly staff and made to feel welcome. Loved how the kids could sit and touch the animals
  • Great for the whole family. The children love the donkey rides and feeding the animals.
  • Just had my daughters 5th birthday here and it was the best thing we could have bought her. Carl our organiser was fantastic. He made her day so special and got her interacting with all the animals and activities. Smithills Open Farm is by far the best place to have your child's birthday party, and would recommend a visit any time. Thanks to all the staff😃
