Churchfields Farm


Churchfields Farm - Droitwich. Places to visit in Worcestershire

This week we ventured to somewhere new - Churchfields Farm. We went Friday and I have already been back to revisit on Sunday with James and Neve in tow. What a lovely find it was! It's been a while since I shared on the blog places to visit so I'm excited to be back sharing some of my best finds with you. 

Churchfields Farm is a lovely farm set in Droitwich with lots to offer for the family. It specialises in Ice cream and has a huge range of flavors available every day. They even have a mince pie flavour! 



The sat nav takes you to a point where you then need to start following the road signs to the farm. For some reason it insists you need to turn right when signs tell you to go left - go with the signs. 

Follow the signs to park. The car park is a great size meaning you can leave ample room between the cars to get car seats/children/bags out easily.
The car park has facilities to get your own milk straight from the farm via a machine. I remember seeing this feature on a farm on Country File a while back - its the first time I have seen it on a farm myself.

Through the gate there is an outdoor play area. The twins who are 2 and a half were able to access the equipment and Neve who is 6 also loved playing on the big slide. 

Whilst they were busy playing, the boys loved watching the tractors going by carrying hay bales, going about their work on the farm.

Tucked away in a barn at the back of the slide is a tractor offering the perfect opportunity for abit of imaginative play (and a photo of course). I actually stood in here to shelter a little from the wind while the children ran around excitedly in the enclosed outdoor play and seating area. 

There are several benches making it a great spot to enjoy a bite to eat or a cheeky ice cream. 

Across the way is another field with more animals. The children loved going to take a closer look and they came straight over to us and appeared to be really social and happy to see us, which was lovely.

They have a marquee outside during the school holidays sometimes and some of the cows are inside for you to go and see. There are plaques up telling you all about the breed, their name, the sex and the date they were born. (The boys loved this green and while cow sitting outside in the sun). 

The cafe area is very popular. Buzzing with people of all ages dropping in for a quick ice cream or delicious lunches. There is a great variety of ice creams, meals and even alcohol to choose from. The converted barn has a child friendly corner full of books, lego, puzzles and a rocking horse. 
This always means alot to me when I venture places with the twins. 

It really does show that a place is welcoming of children. I love how they have taken the time to think about what the younger audience would like from their visit. It kept the boys interested for the hour or so we were in there sitting and eating dinner. They shared books with us and worked together to build towers with the blocks.

Through the barn into the yard where the cows gather and socialise is another outdoor seating area. Bays are planted with lovely seasonal flower and posters are up telling you all about the animals on the farm and what a typical day is like for them. 

I found the farm to have lots of learning opportunities for the children (and adults). 

It is incredibly child friendly.

Another barn hosts - play! £2 a child, you pay at the main counter and there isn't a timer on how longer your child can play. They also host story times during term time, which I am planning to attend very soon. More details on that can be found on their website, if you are interested.

In the Play Barn children have the opportunity to access a bouncy castle, ride on tractors and seesaws and a sandpit. The waitress told me they are in the process of extending the play barn as it is really popular - so that's good to know. I shall update you with the progress as we visit. 

There are farm tours available at an extra fee - they include a high tea afterwards which is a lovely idea. There is a venue room to hire for events in the converted barn and the catering looked AMAZING. 

The area has a few public walks to enjoy. We haven't done any of them as of yet, but intend too. I would really like to do the walk to the church.
