Fairytale Farm to reopen for 2014 earlier than planned
Due to popular demand, Fairytale Farm is reopening earlier than planned in 2014. The farm will be reopen on Tuesdays and Thursdays only from 21 January, throughout January, February and March 2014.
Owner Nick Laister says that this is due to demand from visitors: "Fairytale Farm was opened by the Prime Minister in June last year and we have been really taken by surprise by its popularity, with visitor numbers far exceeding expectations. Visitors are telling us that they would like to be able to visit the farm throughout the winter, and lots of people have been turning up at the farm to find us closed. We have therefore decided to pilot winter openings through to the end of March, when we will be opening on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. All the attractions will be open as normal, and our land drains very well so we will not have any issues with standing water or significant mud. We believe it will be a great winter day out."
The Enchanted Walk, Huff & Puff Adventure Playground and Alfie & Friends Animal Zone will all be open, as will the cafe, shop and indoor play room.
