Standalone Farm, Letchworth

#3 of 12 in Things to do in Letchworth
You'll find a warm welcome awaits you here, where you'll discover a great day out for all the family!

In the spring, the sights and sounds of newborn lambs, calves and chicks delight the visitors. Ducks waddle around the farmyard and paddle happily in Pix Brook, which meanders through the farm. Pigs, free-range chickens and rarer breeds of poultry can be seen as you wander around the farmyard.

A pleasant picnic area is located next to an outdoor children’s play area and indoor picnic facilities are available during inclement weather. There's also the Standalone Cafe for farm visitors and a Walkers Cafe for those passing by on the Greenway. The farm walk takes you through surrounding paddocks, past sheep, cows, different breeds of goats and horses all contentedly grazing.

A wander around the displays in the exhibition barn containing seventy bird specimens, mammals, animal skulls, model dinosaurs, creepy crawlies and a working beehive, will prove interesting to both adults and children. A gentle stroll away, and easily accessible to the disabled, as is much of the farm, are specially constructed hides to view wildfowl in their natural habitat.

  • Such a great place to bring children! My son (aged 2) loves the miniature railway, the ride on tractors and the trailer rides through the fields. My daughter (5) loves the animals and the play area. Nice cafe, good things in the gift shop. All in all a fantastic day out!
  • Great place to visit with little ones, loads of animals to see, they offer tractor rides during summer months, there are small tractors for little ones to explore, huge playground, sandpit in the garden and you can brush ponies even. There is an adjunct parking and it's easy to find. They do different activities throughout the year so check their Facebook page. There is a cafe as well. Downside, I think the daily cost of farm visit is a bit high. (But if you are planning to go there often, membership makes more sense)
  • Really lovely sized farm for visiting with small children. Great little play park and ride on tractors too.
  • Love going here. Even as a young boy I enjoyed seeing the animals and learning about them. Good day out for the kids too and plenty of parking.
  • Fun day out with the kids (6 & 1 1/2), plenty of animals to see and quite contained so not too much walking around. Great signage so its easy to find out what is going on. Big play area with plenty of space for picnics. Free tractor rides around the fields too.
