Last week we had our first trip to Beetle Bank Farm & Wildlife Sanctuary. Wow it exceeded our expectations, as did the weather ☀️☀️☀️

It is a beautifully simple place and I mean that in a good way. They have a big grassy area with climbing frames, a large sandpit and a wendy house packed with toys. There’s also a play barn full of ride on toys and an animal barn 🐐🐑🐖🐇. What I loved was everything was in sight so the kids had the freedom to run wild while I caught up with friends around a picnic bench.

They had a great cafe where we had lunch, plenty of highchairs and good changing facilities. It’s situated near York Maze

Mostly it is outdoors so ideal for a nice weather day but the animal barn and play area with ride on tractors were undercover along with the cafe.

If it was nearer I’m sure we’d be regulars.
