Mums go free this Mother’s Day (Sunday 22nd March) at Barleylands Farm Park near Billericay in Essex. With plenty of outdoor space and longstanding hand-washing facilities, the eight-acre Farm Park offers families a fun-filled day in the open air meeting the animals – which include Highland cows, goats, llamas and newborn lambs- and burning off energy in the adventure playground.
Other activities include tractor and trailer rides, a Speedway racetrack, a birds of prey demonstration and feeding the baby lambs. The new Exotics and Nocturnal House will be holding an interactive talk about its curious creatures at 11am, and Tiptree Tearooms and independent retailers in Barleylands Craft Village offer the opportunity to extend the day with local food and shopping.
Free entry for each mum accompanied by a child under 16 years of age (including under-2s) with a Farm Park ticket.
