Aldenham Country Park
A beautiful place for wildlife, people, rare breed animals, woodland experiences, mixed farming, pony rides, nature walks and more. At our farm you can see chicks, geese, ducks, goats, guinea fowl, turkeys, lambs, cattle and sheep. There is a new farm experience open where you can help feed the animals, stroke some small animals in our petting area and visit our indoor play barn, plus walk around agro-forestry plots including new heritage orchard planting.

Since our visit we have read the classic Adventures of Pooh & other AA Milne books each evening & been able to relate to what she saw which is really lovely when reading a bedtime story.
I thoroughly recommend!
“Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
The park has equipment for the very young ones and is also challenging for those up to 10 I guess...and the petting zoo is clean, has fun animals and fun to walk around. You can feed lambs and have a nice close up chat to some lovely animals if thats your thang! If you have a Winnie-the-pooh fan in the family, there's a fab walk around the 'Hundred Akre Wood'. They'll love trying to find Winnie asleep in his house, checking out Owls' house, Eeyore's place and Rabbit's house....just try not to get caught in the Heffalump trap after you've played pooh sticks.... (Warning....some adults may get more excited than children on spotting Winnie. Please bring their medication to cope with this level of frenzied Pooh love etc)
It's a lovely walk anyhow -we didnt even cover half the hundred akres and we were there for aaaages...and I gather they do Pony rides, Survival days and even Weddings so....give it a look in n maybe take your own picnic....
A lovely enjoyable day out...doit...for a fiver parking and a picnic n some family time, y can't go wrong....
