Hadsham Farm: 23rd March – 14th April

Lambing worth travelling for. It’s in Banbury and a solid 45 minutes from Oxford but I cannot recommend this enough. We went to this last year (see our visit here) and it was just brilliant from the lamb cuddling to getting up close to chicks, pigs and goats. There’s a play area and a really imaginative sensory walk. I went after loads of our community messaged me about it saying how good it was and I’ll be returning again this year too. A top pick!
🗓23rd March – 14th April⏰Two sessions: 9.30am – 12.30pm / 1.30pm – 4.30pm💴 £6 per ticket, Under 2: Free 🎫 Pre-booking required ℹ️ Book here

Bishop’s Court Farm: 31st March and 14th April

There is so much going on at Bishop’s Court Farm and we’ve previously enjoyed alpaca walking here – brilliantly random! They have two lambing open days this year where you can meet the newborn lambs and some of the other animals (alpacas, sheep, goats and pigs). If you want a more personal experience, you can book in for one of their private lambing experiences (over 16s only – £40). Check out our previous visit here.
