I had the joy of spending last weekend in Centerparcs and I had the most amazing time. My boyfriend and I decided, well.. maybe I decided, that the petting zoo/mini farm that Elevden showcased was a perfect way to spend our day. It was around £6 each and I have to admit, I was pretty damn excited.
Unbelievably, we were the only two in our group and so we got to spend one on one time with all the animals which was incredible. We learnt so much about their breeds as well as their individual characters and feeding them all was such a treat (you wouldn’t believe how gentle sheep and goats are!)
The experience was something I absolutely loved as any time around animals is a perfect day in my eyes! We did however learn from the guide that Centerparcs was closing the mini farm and all the animals were being jointly relocated to another petting zoo where they would still get to be around children – something the animals loved and had become very accustomed too. I was mainly sad for the ladies that had worked with them for so many years to finally have to say their goodbyes.
You could clearly tell there was a deep bond and love between these ladies and the animals which made it even more special that we were one of the last people to spend some time around them. You could tell they were completely spoilt with affection day in, day out and, for me, that is the most important thing for animals.
I am so so glad I chose to book this for Adam and I because it was just the most amazing time. I could have easily spent all day with them! I had to show you guys the photos because I desperately needed to tell you about it!!
I am sad that Centreparcs have decided to close the mini farm but I am glad that the animals get to stay together, it would have been dreadful to have split them all up!
I hope you liked all the photos I shared of this day – it was too brilliant to not showcase with you all.
Do you have a favourite farm animal?
