Between the hilly landscape on South-Western of Cambridge you’ll find National Trust, Wimpole Home Farm. A beautiful estate, where you can enjoy a lovely walk during the year in the vast parkland with adjacent gardens full of colourful flowers, a stately country house and a farm with activities for the whole family.
The park is easily accessible by car and parking is free. If you’re in possession of a National Trust Membership Card, you can walk through and use all the facilities, otherwise separate tickets are available at the shop near the entrance. Prices vary depending on what you want to do.
We decided to skip the house, and buy a ticket for the Walled Garden and the nearby Home Farm where you can find different animals such as county horses, rare cattle breeds, sheeps and pigs. A perfect destination to visit with children, where they can learn everything about the daily activities in the yard and what it is to take care of the animals.
Adjacent you’ll find the Tearoom with a large picknick field where you can settle down on the grass while the children can enjoy themselves with the available playground equipment or a little further in the Adventure Playground. With rainy cold weather you can have a seat inside and warm yourself up with a cup of hot chocolate or tea.
During the Fall/Winter period it is recommended to bring some boots, umbrellas and raincoats with you. Especially for the kids as there are a lot of natural play areas.
