Have a walk around Ouseburn Farm

Why not take a trip to Ouseburn Farm? The perfect day out when the spring sun is shining, it’s a no-brainer to visit this bank holiday weekend. The farm has a packed itinerary of things to do around the clock for people of all ages, with one of the more popular activities being goat walking. Yes, it’s exactly what it says on the tin – grab yourself a little billy goat and take them out for a walk in the sunshine – what a perfect and wholesome activity to do with some friends. The farm also has lamb feeding and crafting activities which you can also take part in, which we think are the perfect way to bring the spring feeling to your bones. You can also grab a coffee and cake after that long walk with little Billy, and even visit their farm shop where you can find a range of different home-grown products.
