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.
GREAT GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM | He’ll love this immersive Crime Scene Investigation Experience in Yorkshire
Anyone who fancies themselves a bit of a sleuth. If you’re an armchair detective and work out “whodunnit” before Poirot even twiddled his moustache or love watching real crime documentaries then this CSI Experience in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire is for you. Vouchers don’t have to be bought in pairs but I would say that to get the most out of the experience you’d be best off going with likeminded, crime-fighting friend.
If you love food and don’t know Sheffield very well then the Kelham Island Food Tour could be the one for you. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, filled with many tasty delights whilst discovering new places around the much loved industrial part of town. The first time I ventured away from my city-centre haunts was shortly after finishing uni, when we discovered the Fat Cat pub and (more importantly) £2 pints of ale. It dumbfounded us that we’d never even heard of this part of town, so finding such an amazing place to drink after four years living in Sheffield was quite a late discovery!
I am a pub girl through and through and a glutton for a good, hearty menu. Forever hunting out new locations to catch up with my friends or to go for lunch with the family, so was super excited to discover this little gem situated in the beautiful Sutton.
