Fun farms



The farm itself is small and it was easy to keep an eye on nine children (we were four adults though to be fair).  There were pigs, several varieties of sheep (with their lambs), horses, chickens, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, mice …Bruno was so pleased to be given a bottle to feed the lambs with and Daisy got to hold a chick that was only a few days old.  Later on the guinea pigs and rabbits came out to be held and stroked.  There is also a big barn that has straw bales to sit on, a playground to play on and plenty of toy tractors to brum on.  It reminded me of the good old days growing up on a farm in Eskdale (in the Lake District).  We spent a long time here just sitting at the picnic benches and watching the children play, before setting out on a short walk through the fields to the duck pond to feed the ducks.  There are also pony and trap rides and while we didn’t manage to fit this in, the kids still loved sitting on the trap without pony in the barn!


There is also a farm shop, a dangerous shop selling all sorts of brilliant toys for kids, a wine shop, a plant centre, The Loft (selling a range of products from different local businesses)

Funny Farm (film) – Wikipedia

Funny Farm is a 1988 film starring Chevy Chase and Madolyn Smith. The Townshend Common today has an unusual souvenir from the production of Funny Farm: to make the trees on the Common look as if it was mid autumn, the film crew dyed the leaves, which killed all of the trees, except for one in the middle of the Common.

Greenlands Farm Village is just outside the Lake District and is about an hour’s drive from Eskdale or Keswick, To get to Wasdale from Greenlands Farm Village it is about an hour and a half.  For Satnav users, use Burton Road, Carnforth to find Greenlands Farm.
