The Best Day Ever 

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?

    I love petting zoos!! It’s so amazing to be able to spend time with farm animals, feeding them and learning about them! I have a distrust of sheep though, from one experience at a farm where it chased me down and stole my bag of food 😂 (I was like 8 at the time, that story seems to crack everyone up though). But I love pretty much all farm animals 😀

      Nooo you’re joking hahahah that’s brilliant!! So great that we both love them, they’re so cute aren’t they?! xx

  11. August 13, 2017 / 3:05 am

    this looks like such a nice way to spend the day! that bunny is too cute 😄

  15. August 13, 2017 / 11:29 pm

    I would have loved this, and felt a little sad also. I always find it so heartwarming when people are sweet to innocent animals and take good care of them. I can tell you both had a great time✨✨

    • August 15, 2017 / 10:33 pm

      Aw thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment 🙂 Same here! Being kind to animals is so important to me xx

  16. August 14, 2017 / 12:55 am

    Love this, I absolutely adore animals too and always end up dragging my boyfriend along to zoo’s and farms 😂 xx

    • August 15, 2017 / 10:35 pm

      Ah really? That is so so cute!! I’m definitely going to start dragging him to more things like this, I loved it far too much! xx

  17. August 14, 2017 / 1:18 am

    Lovely! I could safely say it’s worth it to spend more time with animals than humans. Cheers!

    Petting zoos / farms are so fun! I am always wary of goats though – they tried to eat my shirt when I was a kid! By the way, your hair looks fab in these photos. 🙂

    • August 15, 2017 / 10:41 pm

      Hahahah really? They are so mischievous, I love it! Ah thank you so much! That is so so lovely of you xx
