Abbotsbury Children's Farm

Abbotsbury Children's Farm is a great place for the young family looking for things to do in Dorset. There are fun things to do every day including racing tractors, riding ponies, play in the large undercover play area or play in the indoor water play zone. There are also lots of animals for the children to meet, greet and feed including cuddles with the guinea pigs and bottle feeding the baby goats. The baby goats also race around a track twice a day and after they have finished children are invited to take a goat for a warm down walk on a lead.
