Court Farm near Banwell / WsM

Have a great family day out at Somerset’s top award winning farm attraction – all year round

Now into our 30th year as a family run farm attraction, all the animals and staff at Court Farm are looking forward to welcoming hoards of children and their families for a fun packed summer of fun.

With lots of new, baby animals mixed with a range of great play facilities that can tire out even the most energetic of kids (and adults), we hope that all our visitors, regardless of age, will have a day to remember.

Don’t forget that we have lots of things going on during the year so whenever you come, you may well see some new additions.

Glastonbury Abbey (and Tor)

Generally speaking people come to the Abbey for three reasons.

 

First, they want to see a living Christian sanctuary that may have been the site of the oldest church, and was certainly once the   greatest Abbey, in the country. Second, they come because they want to see the possible burial place of   King Arthur, but the third reason people come to the Abbey grounds is simply for peace and   quiet. The relative seclusion of the 36 acres provides the perfect atmosphere for people who want to forget their hectic daily   lives, and take it easy.

Set in the beautiful Somerset countryside the 50 acre family adventure park is one of the largest visitor attractions in the South West providing fun and variety with something to offer everyone.
From a state of the art giant indoor play barn to the delightful Pets’ Village, adults and children alike can experience the joys of getting up close and personal with the many animals we home. Hairy highland beasties, pot bellied pigs, pygmy goats, rabbits and guinea pigs – you decide. Or if you prefer something a little more up close and personal, drop into our dairy where you can see our cows being milked each day. A visit to the Falconry Centre is another highlight. Home to owls, falcons and hawks this is a unique opportunity to see birds of prey as never before with our daily displays.
