Farmer Palmer's Farm Park, Poole

4.5
#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.

  • Excellent value day out - if you're local I'd recommend buying a yearly pass as it's a fantastic spot to return to for a couple of hours every week. Lots to do, from riding the toy tractors and daring the big slides, to meeting animals, exploring the woods, and watching a cow being milked. Staff are friendly and welcoming, animals are very well cared for, and the whole place is always full of very happy children and families! Restaurant has a decent range of fresh cooked food at good prices, even gluten free options clearly labelled. Gift shop has a really good range of well priced toys so a treat at the end of the trip won't break the bank!
  • We like this area of Dorset for the kids, we went to Farmer Palmer's a few years ago when on holiday and the weather was looking dicey. So we were in the area again and decided to go. Since then it has had more activities added and is well maintained. It's ideal for kids of primary school age down to little tots with lots of outdoor play, and covered barn/hay play areas too. There's a great peddle go-kart track, a maize maze, bouncy castle all included in the entry price. If local, a family season ticket would definitely be worth considering. There's one or two extra activities like tractor/pony rides that you have to pay for but they not too pricey and you don't have to do them. There's also a nice restaurant. All in all I would definitely recommend for a family day out. (Sorry not to include better pictures of the play areas)
  • Great place for young children to have a fabulous day filled with fun. Indoor and outdoor play areas including softplay, bouncy castles, ride on tractors and go karts, swings, slides, animals to see, interactive play and so much more. Amazing value for money restaurant with excellent quality food. Fantastic for parties.
  • We live locally and have a year long pass and it's been a great place to take the kids they LOVE it! Will be buying another pass WHEN this one runs out. Lots to do and see indoor and outdoor fun, so even if it's raining the is still stuff to do. The only thing that is a small concern is that in the barn where there is straw and the big slides, the straw has disintegrated and is very dusty my son got a up his nose and took a few days to clear. But this is a small issue on an otherwise great day out. I cannot recommend highly enough. A great farm with a great atmosphere see you soon Farmer Palmer's!
  • Great entertainment for the kids. Farmer Palmer's feels very commercialised compared to others and has lost the farm feel. It's more of a giant play area than a farm experience. Party rooms lack imagination and are adjacent to each other with no door so noise travels across. Especially when a party is playing musical games. Still a fun day out for the family.

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.
