Standalone Farm, 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.

  • Lovely little farm, I visited with my grandchildren. They had a lovely time despite the rain. Bottle feeding the lambs was fun, and milking the life size plastic cow. You can take a picnic and eat in a heated barn, there's also a lovely cafe.
  • Excellent farm. We have a yearly family pass and it's well worth the upfront cost. Large park play area. Plenty of animals to see. Good variety of activities throughout the year such as pumpkin carving. Father's Day crafts. Cafe is reasonably priced with a small but good quality selection.
  • It was a lovely place to go with my godson. The animals looked well looked after and were easily accessible. It was a very enjoyable afternoon out.
  • Good for young children. It's a working farm with lots of animals. But the children are not really interested in them. They prefer the play areas!
  • It's a farm zoo, So you see pigs, sheep, chickens and so on. Tractor ride when they are going are fun. Play ground is a little dull. Honestly I don't know how they are still open cause I have been a few times and nothing there ever changes.
