Unfortunately indoor play in Billy”s Farm Barn is not yet open due to government restrictions, but we hope that we can re-open indoor play very soon.

Unfortunately our famous tractor and trailer ride will not be available just yet, but we are hoping we can reintroduce it before school holidays finish.
Outdoor play, jumping pillows and the sand pit will be on offer, however customers will need to bring your own toys for the sand pit, as we are unable to provide the usual diggers and buckets and spades. A stunning walk around our tractor track which is half a mile long will be made available and an inter interactive quiz for all the family, is also on offer to enjoy. We have also launching a new on-line food ordering service for your convenience.
Initially we will be running morning and afternoon sessions to ensure we can clean and sanitise all areas between sessions. Online booking through our website will ensure that your visit is organised, we have all your details. We will be asking everyone to pay by card for everyone’s safety. Like many other attractions we will be carrying out regular sanitisation to ensure the safety of all our visitors and staff.
