Hadsham Farm Lambing

Hadsham Farm Lambing

Date of Adventure: 17 Feb, 2024

We love lambing season and although this is a fair way from Oxford, it is totally worth the drive. What you get for your money is quite something and the three hour session flies by! To give you some context, I took six children on my own last year for an afternoon session and they were entertained for the whole three hours (we easily could have stayed the whole day!) and three of them fell asleep in the car on the way home!

Here’s what to expect:

🐑 Ewes and lambs in the barns
🐑 Designated area for lamb holding, facilitated by staff
🐑 Lamb bottle feeding
🐑 Chick holding
🐑 Sensory walk (we LOVED this – the farm is huge)
🐑 Play area
🐑 Café

Our favourite part was the lamb holding and sensory walk. The lamb holding is closely supervised and you sit on hay bales with an apron on to show that you are ready and the staff pass a lamb to you. The lambs are rotated so they aren’t being held all the time and the staff are constantly checking in on them. The sensory walk has so many different elements to it and is really imaginative and includes all the things that children love: bashing, balancing, smelling, sticking their hands in things and taking their shoes off!  And although the children didn’t appreciate the Cotswold views as much as I did, they were stunning! All this for £6!

These tickets come out and sell out fast so get in there for the 2024 lambing!
