Farmer Palmer's Farm Park, Poole

4.6
#2 of 20 in Outdoors in Poole
Farmer Palmer's Farm Park caters to the under 8 crowd. A mix of indoor and outdoor attractions emphasizes nature and the farming life. You can start with the “deer safari” enjoyed from atop a tractor trailer. Woodland walks, pig racing, straw tunnels, and flight shows by Alan the Owl should also be on your list. Little ones will have access to calm, barnyard animals and may be able to feed them, depending on the time of day. Many exhibits are seasonal, so be sure to check with the visitors’ center to see what will be available during your trip.

  • This place is absolutely amazing. Without a doubt the best place we have ever taken our 5 year old twins and 14 month old baby. All three of them had a great time and the twins said the slides in the hay barn was the best part of their whole holiday to Dorset. The owner is lovely and whilst we were there even jumped behind the counter in the restaurant to help out before running off to give a presentation on the animals, my partner had a chat with him and could get over what a lovely guy he was. The layout is perfect for younger children as they do not need to do much walking and we found it very reasonably priced. We had such a good day we even bought them all matching t-shirts in the shop afterwards :) Wouldn't hesitate to go back here if we are ever in the area again.
  • We visited here today as part of our holiday and I must say that it is a fantastic place to spend the day. My nearly 4 year old daughter didn't want to leave. She loved all the play areas and meeting all the animals. I would recommend Farmer Palmer's to everyone, and to top it off, we had glorious sunny weather as well. We will be returning for a second visit in the not to distant future.
  • Farmer Palmer's is always a great day out with the children, especially if you have purchased their annual passes. There is a lot for the children to do whether rain or shine. The most recent event was a well organised Easter egg hunt, although they did prove to be a lot harder to find than we first thought! Well worth a visit and you can spend the hole day there without getting bored
  • We came to farmers palmers on the last day of our holiday. This is the second time we have visited and both times we had a great time. My 4 year old son loved the soft play area. Was a bit of a shame it was raining but we did manage to walk the woodland walk in between the rain showers. Even though the weather wasn't great there is plenty to do inside and animals are well looked after and loved to be petted. We definitely recommend for great day out and burn off some energy for the kids.
  • Amazing place for the kids but lots for the adults to enjoy too. Your kids will easily be occupied for the whole day here and you will have a quiet evening when they go down to sleep early.

Where to stay in Poole

Consider renting an apartment inside a redeveloped warehouse in Poole's quay. This area is full of attractions and views over the port, where boats leave for cruises to nearby islands. The town center and the harbor are near each other, and lodging is available in both areas.
