It was the perfect day for a trip to the farm today with this beautiful autumn sunshine.
I only had the two little ones today so Mum and Dad joined us as we set off to Bocketts Farm in Surrey. We have visited here once before but this was a special trip to see what had been put on to celebrate Halloween.
On arrival we were given a spooky quiz to fill out on our way around the other attractions that could then be handed in to the pretty pumpkin who was handing out treats for completing the quiz.
We arrived in perfect timing to walk straight into the wizard’s magic show. Number four is massively into magic at the moment so this was perfect for him.
He kept all the children engaged throughout the show and there was lots of audience participation which is always great when there is a young audience. Number four was in awe throughout and is still questioning how his wallet set on fire!!
We played in the indoor play area which is normally one of my pet hates, but the boys loved riding on the tractors and bikes, climbing through the soft play and whizzing down the huge slides.
All the areas were spotlessly clean and well inclosed which is a must for my escape artists!
The boys then had a quiet five minutes in the craft area where they made some cool witches hats to get even more of a feel for the Halloween theme.
Next up we made our way out to the animals. The boys had a wonderful time petting the rabbits and Guinea pigs, feeding the sheep, goats and cows and looking at the super cute piglets that had not long been born.
We made good use of the vast outdoor play area with the air pillows being the biggest hit!
The boys were finally prized away when there was a call for the start of the pig races. They had a brilliant time cheering them on and number four was more than happy when ‘Bradley Piggins’ came in first place!
Hungry from the busy morning we made our way to the tea rooms for some lunch. There are a wide range of hot and cold foods and a really good children’s menu that offers more than just the normal sandwich or nugget meal.
Number five tucked into a yummy macaroni cheese while my little allergy boy was well catered for with a hot meal to keep him going.
We finished our day with a peek at the creepy crawlies in the reptile tent that had been bought along from Amazing Animal Encounters and a trip around the farm on a tractor ride which included a creepy wood especially for Halloween. The boys loved all the lumps and bumps on the way round whilst the adults took in the stunning views.
We had a fabulous day at a fantastically run farm with super friendly and helpful staff who’s passion for the farm and the animals really shone through.
If you are looking for Halloween themed day out for your little ones then Bocketts is the perfect place to go for the fun side of Halloween rather than a scare factor. The Wizards and Witches event runs until 1st November and got a massive thumbs up from us.
We were given entrance to Bocketts Fsrm for the purpose of this review and these are my own honest opinions.
