RECOMMENDATION | Cobble Hey Farm in Lancashire
Why I love Cobble Hey Farm:
It’s a mall, working, family-run farm with lots of charm and great for little people. Expect a more authentic farm experience. No thrills, no tractor rides but great, informative talks in a family-farm setting.
Value for money:
9/10- £5 per adult or free under 2. (You can also buy a season pass which works out at £20 per adult and would be so worthwhile if you’re regular visitors like us!)
Setting the scene:
Evelyn is animal mad so farms are always top of our agenda when it comes to days out. We’re really spoiled for choice in Lancashire but Cobble Hey is one of our favourites. It’s small and intimate and doesn’t have big tractor rides and huge indoor play areas – but I think it’s because it’s so quaint that we love it.
We first visited when Evelyn was 6 months old and have been back numerous times since. Farmer Dave is so lovely. His talks are informative and every day there are lots of opportunities to feed different animals, hold them and even walk the baby goats! There is a small outdoor play area and gorgeous gardens where you can walk and have a picnic! There is also an indoor hay maize and play area for toddlers. It’s not an all singing all dancing farm but it’s real life and that’s why we love it!
There is a café and ice cream parlour too which serves fresh food and cakes. Coffee is amazing and the food we’ve had has always been good! The ice cream moo shake was amazing and I love that again they offer sofas and coffee tables for comfort surrounded with toys for the children so they can play and you can enjoy a hot drink or two!

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
I had already heard good things about Elements. Despite only just celebrating their first birthday, they’ve been nominated for two awards in Marketing Derby’s food and drink awards (Best Newcomer and Best Customer Service). Thanks to their beautifully curated Instagram feed they were firmly on my Girl About radar.
So when Elements got in touch to invite us to try their teddy bear’s picnic themed children’s menu I jumped at the opportunity. I can’t tell you the last time I enjoyed a delicious lunch out with my toddler. We have loads of fun but I’d pretty much resigned myself that civilised lunches at nice places were largely a thing of the past. I was intrigued to see whether this was the answer. In the week or so before, Lily was bubbling with excitement. I remained somewhat sceptical.
Thursday night a couple of weeks ago and my Dad was in town. My step-mum had gone to an ABBA event at the O2 and he didn’t really fancy getting all dressed up like a Super Trooper, so we decided to go out for a bite to eat. I’d been to The Stratford once before when it first opened in the summer and was impressed with their Stratford burger, so thought it was worth having another look.
