Award-winning Kent Life Heritage Farm Park, near Maidstone, appeals to nostalgia seekers, history buffs and youngsters alike. Visitors can wander through the Vintage Village; explore the beautiful gardens, orchard and one of the last hand-picked hop gardens in the country; ramble along the wildlife discovery trail; and see the last working coal-fired oast house in Britain.
The attraction is also a real working farm, so there are plenty of animals to see, including pigs, sheep, ducks, goats, alpacas, horses and ponies. Kids love the hands-on Cuddle Corner, as well as the indoor and outdoor play areas, the Paint-a-Pot studios, donkey rides and tractor rides.
There are year-round activities and special events for the whole family too, especially during holidays and weekends, so there’s always something to enjoy whatever the weather.
Kent Life’s annual family pass offers fantastic value and is valid for most events. For further details visit www.kentlife.org.uk
