Once outside, the temptation of the parks, the tractor track and fuelling station, the ‘Farmala 1’ circuit, the jeep track, free crazy golf and the trampolines got Sofia into a frenzy and she couldn’t decide where to go first!
Overall the ‘farm side’ of it wouldn’t take too long to get around but there is plenty to do to fill at least half a day. If you were crazy enough, you could fill the other half of the day in the huge indoor softplay area.
The things I liked about Finkley were that once you’d paid to get in, that could be it if you wanted. There’s not thousands of kiosks tempting the kids to want sweets, drinks and ice creams and the gift shop is not only small but really discreet too.
Another thing I noticed was that if you wanted to sign up for an annual pass, you can do this on a monthly direct debit to make the payments much more manageable.
The only disappointing thing from this trip was that the calf feeding wasn’t until 5pm which was a bit late as we needed to head home for our own feeding time at our zoo, but we’ll look forward to doing this when we return. As a local-ish place to visit, we will definitely be back!
