Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm, Mill Lane, Baylham, Suffolk, IP6 8LG

Another great day out we had recently was at Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm, about 40 minutes by car from the centre of Colchester. I can't recall how I heard about it, most likely some furious googling, there certainly isn't any literature about it in Colchester...

So, we went during the Easter weekend and did some serious Lamb Cuddling. It was great, and actually very busy but certainly worth a visit on a sunny day. It costs around £7 per adult (children under 4 are free) and this included a bag of animal feed, access to wander round the farm and see all their wonderful rare breeds and a big ol' Lamb squeeze. There is also a nice little cafe on site and I believe you can host a child's party there!  Here are a small section of pictures from a lovely day out:

Parking is available (for free) in a nearby field and then you access the farm by a little road over a stream.

There is a box of sticks and instructions for 'Pooh Sticks' as you cross the bridge. Nice touch!

You can hug a tree...

..and see the most beautiful beasts!

Very relaxed rabbit.

Fluffy cow.

Hairy pig.

Grinning hog.
