Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park, Weymouth

While on a weeks camping trip to Weymouth we decided to spend a day visiting Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park.  The park is situated near Poole in Dorset and is aimed at children aged 8 and under.

As soon as you enter the Farm Park the children have the opportunity to remove their shoes and enter the soft play barn.  Within minutes parents are free of children and able to relax and chat among themselves while enjoying a drink from the on-site café.

Once the kids have burnt off their initial energy in the soft play barn there is another barn next door where stacked hay bales combine with slides of various heights and shapes for the kids to enjoy.  Opposite the hay slide barn there is an area set aside for children to play on the peddle tractors.

Moving outside more there is a large playground, a small water play area, a bouncy castle (or should I say bouncy cow – complete with udders!) and a go-kart track with peddle go-karts providing fun for all ages.

The café serves a large variety of food and also has a soft play area, this time with CCTV allowing parents to eat and keep an eye on their children at the same time!  There are picnic benches situated outside of the café and dotted around the grounds for those who have brought their own lunches.

There is a small woodland walk around a bog which makes for a nice change of pace from all the play activities.  For those wanting to get lost for a bit there is also a Maize Maze next to the woodland walk.

We didn’t see much of the animals, though at various times during the day there are animal feeds to view and information on these are provided when entering the farm park.

The weather was on our side so we could make the most of the outside attractions.  Our two children fitted the age bracket that the Farm Park was aimed at and as such they really enjoyed a full day here.
