If you are looking for a farm park, farm shop and café to visit in the area, you will not find much better than the Stonehurst Farm Park in Mountsorrel. A super place to have parties and to visit with your young children, it is family run and has been around since 1951.
It is open throughout the year from 09:30 – 17:00 except over the latter side of Christmas (their website holds more information http://www.stonehurstfarm.co.uk) although it would be recommended you visit during the finer weather when you can take full advantage of their outdoor activities.
They sell animal food in the farm shop where you pay for your admission, £5.95 per adult, £4.95 per child (2 – 16 with under 2's free) with concessions available. Once inside the farm gate you can feed the farm animals including cows, goats, sheep/lambs (according to time of year), horses, donkey and pigs. They then have a pet area, 2 outdoor play park areas, horse-riding area, tractor ride area and undercover rope swings in the straw barn.
It is a good half day trip but can be stretched with a picnic depending on the age of your children, pre-schoolers and early school years are easily entertained here.
If you book a 2hr party here it is really nicely structured to cover all of the activities available, including the small pet area where they can hold the animals, a tractor ride, a horse ride concluding with party snack in the special designated area at the top of the barn (limited access for the less mobile). The price for this is £11.95 per child with a minimum of 10 children – this includes your own party guide, invitations, food and lovely party boxes.
Parking is free of charge.
For more information, they are available on telephone number 01509 413216
