We recently visited Fishers Farm Park – a family run adventure farm park, which is situated in the idyllic countryside in Wisborough Green, West Sussex.
We arrived at the park just after 10am, soon after opening (Opening hours are 10am to 5pm). There’s so much to do it’s hard to know where best to start, so we took a picture of all the ride times and headed off out to the animal barn which was full of animals including some gorgeous piglets, some alpacas along with some smaller animals like the rabbits, chicks and guinea pigs. What I found lovely was that you were able to stroke the animals and get up close. They were all kept in impeccably clean stalls and there was ample handwashing available.
We came out of the barn to an array of rides and play areas. There were three little rides; the teacups, carousel and the octopus ride, all included in the price and two of the rides are suitable for all ages including adults, meaning even the youngest (and oldest) visitors can join in the fun. My son is 15 months old so this was a great introduction to the joys of rides. My daughter is 8 years old and couldn’t wait to try Sky Fall where you jump off a platform onto a big inflatable pillow, it was only opened last year and is great for budding daredevils five years plus. We all went on the ghost tunnel ride next, my friend’s son, who is just under two, found it a bit scary but it was great fun and it was enjoyed by all. Another firm favourite was the climbing wall with four different sections ranging from easy to hard, they were given the chance to try all the different levels and didn’t feel rushed at all. There are two jumping pillows, one smaller one for smaller people and a bigger one. What I liked was no matter what your age there is something for everyone.
The squirrel scramble is a high tree top walk and not for the faint hearted, the kids loved it but for me not so much. It’s great that there are things for those who are adventurous and plenty for those who are not.
Even though we came on a day that wasn’t boiling hot the kids were still up for playing in Splash Attack which is a fun water splash park. There is plenty of seating around the outside and a couple of changing cubicles, I can imagine on a hot day this area would be the place to be.
My most favourite part was the tractor ride that lasted about 25 minutes and went way out into the fields with sheep and cows. The lady driving the tractor provided a very interesting commentary. It was lovely seeing all the animals out grazing; we saw goats, pigs, horses, cows and sheep. This tractor ride was the highlight of my day and was thoroughly enjoyable.
We stopped for a spot of lunch and ate in the indoor soft play area. There are numerous soft play areas suitable for all ages. The fairly new giggled village is an amazing addition to the already fabulous soft play area and even has a sensory room aimed at under 2. There are also plenty of slides and sensory instruments and hours of fun for all.
Fishers Farm Park has so much to offer including pony rides, Devils Dyke Descent, the Jolly Fisher Play Pirate Ship, adventure golf, kitchen garden and the list goes on and on. A few things need £1 tokens but there’s more than enough to do without spending any extra. You could easily spend all day here and still not fit everything in. Tthe tickets are fairly expensive at around £15 each for 3 years upward and 2 years £13.75, but you definitely get good value for money. It’s well worth a visit over the summer holidays you most certainly won’t be disappointed. Great fun was had by everyone and we can’t wait to come back again. It’s also worth noting that you can buy tickets for just the soft play, a perfect place for a day full of family fun for all.
A great place to visit all year round!
Tickets cost from £10.75 to £16.75 per person (book online in advance for discount).
