Lee Valley Park Farms in Waltham Abbey, Essex are just the best kind of fun when it comes to a great value family day out.There are cuddly sheep, giant rabbits, rare breed pigs, long-necked llamas and a loveable meerkat family to meet.You can hit the heights on the giant bouncy pillow, scale the Spider Tower or whizz down the slopes on our fantastic toboggan run. The lttle ones love riding on the combine harvester in Piglet's Paradise.Then take a short trip on a tractor trailer to our working dairy farm, where you'll meet the cows and learn all about life on a real farm.

Went today with my husband and two boys (aged 1 &2). Activities were limited. Soft Play was dirty, not a good selection of animals. The website really does oversell itself. Food to feed the animals was expensive. Main Concern was their lack of concern for health and safety. There was wood falling off fences easy for my one year old... More

My Husband and I popped in here as a spur of the moment thing on our way back from visiting the Redwings Ada Cole Rescue nearby. There wasn't much to see unfortunately, a lot of animals had been moved due to the bird flu plus it is quite small. That said, the meerkats made us chuckle with their antics and... More

A good place to take the grandchildren for a fun day out. A good mixture of farm animals alongside play areas. Good picnic facilities and indoor areas. Highlight of our visit was the opportunity to feed the orphan lambs. Some of the signage needs updating and given a lick of paint.

Kids enjoyed their day as a good mix of outdoor play and animals. Not too big so not walking miles, but does seem pricey for a small place. That said facilities good (could do with proper indoor picnic area) - lots of seating at main cafe but nearly all outside. Def a dry day place!

Visited in the Easter holidays, had a great day out. We had lovely weather and was plenty to do it's not a big farm but that's what I find lovely about this place.

It's a nice small farm with sheep and goats you can feed and various other animals to observe with your children. And you can bring your dog. Very pleasant two hours.

As above, been here loads last year and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately maybe because it's still early season most animals aren't there and so it's practically empty at the moment. The cost was reduced however I'd rather wait til Easter when it's in full swing with animals and activities to enjoy. Typically it'd get 4/5 stars but Feb/march only warrants... More

Thanks for reviewing your visit to the farm. Sorry to hear you didn’t have as good a trip as previously. We’ve hidden away our birds at the moment to protect them from Avian Influenza (bird flu) and others of our animals are hibernating and staying in the warm.
