When I want to visit Longdown Activity Farm, can I turn up and pay on the day at admissions like I normally do?

Sorry, in order to comply with Government guidelines, we need to restrict the numbers of daily visitors on the farm. This means that you must pre-book a day and arrival time, and pay for your tickets online using the online booking facility on our website. You will then need to print off your ticket/s – this is your order confirmation – to bring to the farm on the appropriate day of your visit.

How many people can I book on one online booking?

Following Government guidelines, we can only accept up to 6 people per online booking. This includes children and babies.

Are the tickets I purchase online transferable to another day?

We need to keep count of the number of visitors visiting Longdown Activity Farm on any one day so this means that tickets are non-transferable from one day to another.

You used to offer a 10% discount by booking online – is this offer still available?

Sorry, because all tickets must now be sold online we have temporarily ceased the online discount. This will return once normal operations resume.

I have a season ticket, so do I still need to book online?

So that we can adhere to a maximum number of visitors on the farm, even if you have a season ticket, you still need to book a day and arrival time online. You will not be charged for this.  Season tickets along with a printed entry ticket (or ticket displayed on a smartphone) – your order confirmation – must be produced at admissions for validation.

I have a 2020 Free Child/ 2020 Free Family Voucher/other 2020 discount voucher – can I use this?

You will be able to redeem any free or discounted vouchers (dated for the 2020 season) when the farm has returned to normal operations and we can accept payment at admissions once more. We hope that this will be at some time during the 2021 season.

Will you be offering your normal schedule of daily activities?

We are delighted to announce that we have managed to retain most of your favourite daily hands-on activities including bottle-feeding the kid goats and the Animal Encounter Experience. These will be carried out following full safety measures.

What about the children’s play areas?

There will be no access to the indoor play areas, however the popular ride-on toys, diggers, outdoor play areas, crazy golf and Go Quackers are fully open. We have moved the trampolines to the outdoor play area, so we are delighted to announce that these are now accessible.

Are the toilets and Changing Room open?

Yes, our toilets and Changing Room facility will be open and operating on a one-in, one-out basis. The facilities will be cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis.

Will I be able to buy food and drink in the tearoom or kiosk?

Our tearoom and kiosk, serving drinks and snacks, will be open, with outdoor seating and a limited amount of covered seating provided nearby. You are very welcome to bring your own picnic which can be enjoyed on one of the many picnic benches around the farm. You may want to bring your own picnic rug and sit on our large grassed area towards the back of the farm.

Are the Farm Produce Shop, Chicken Shack, and Gift Shop open?

The Farm Produce Shop and the Gift Shop are open daily, 10am to 5pm with restricted access, limiting numbers of visitors that can enter each shop. Social distancing measures are in place, to keep you safe.

Can I pay for goods using cash?

We ask that for the duration of the Covid-19 restrictions that you pay for goods using a cashless method.

Can I book a birthday party?

Sorry, we will not be offering birthday parties until the current Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. We will let you know through our website and social media channels when we can start to take bookings again.

Can I book a Farmer’s Day?

Sorry, we will not be offering farmer’s days until the current Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. We will let you know through our website and social media channels when we can start to take bookings again.

What about the Mobile Farm?

We are very sad to inform you that the Mobile Farm is no longer available.

Can we still see the animals?
