Family Days Out for Animal-Loving Children

Is your child an animal lover? Are you looking for the perfect summer family day out? We might just have the answer!


A Family Day Out on the Farm


We know that we’re called Blithbury Reindeer Lodge, but don’t let the name fool you! It’s not just reindeer that reside here. As a fully functioning farm, we have chicken, rabbits, goats, ponies, donkeys and a number of other inhabitants to keep the animal-loving child enthralled for hours!

Family Day Out on the Farm

For the first year ever, we will be opening Blithbury Reindeer Lodge to the general public over the children’s summer holidays! While the reindeer enjoy a well-deserved rest in the fields, following a busy start to the year, visitors will have access to both the indoor and outdoor play areas across the farm and, more importantly, to our small animal barn. Perfect for the animal-loving child to explore.


What’s more, refreshments can be purchased throughout the day, to ensure that Mum and Dad can stay relaxed whilst the children go off on their merry adventures.


Blithbury Lodge will be open from Tuesday to Sunday during the school summer holidays, so come and say hi to our animals! You can read more on our website, and we’ll be releasing more information on summer at Blithbury Lodge in the coming weeks. If you want to be certain not to miss out on all the updates, you can stay in the loop by liking our Facebook page and make sure you’re always the first to get the news!


Come and Meet Our Babies


If your child enjoys the cuddlier things in life, our Meet the Babies event would be perfect. Our Meet the Babies weekend takes place on the 23rd and 24th June and is the perfect opportunity to experience the wonders of Blithbury Reindeer Lodge and explore the 30 acres of land across which our reindeer are free to roam.

Meet the Babies Event


To satisfy the more inquisitive child, our team of expert reindeer handlers will even be on hand to answer any questions your little ones may have about the farm’s furry residents.


You can enjoy a stroll around the open tracks connecting our fields to meet and fuss the reindeer. This allows you to observe the reindeer in their natural habitat, sleeping, playing and grazing. If you are careful and quiet enough, they might even come and say hello! We even offer donkey rides. It’s an animal-lover’s dream!


You can book your family’s space on our Meet the Babies event on our website.

At Blithbury Reindeer Lodge, we are a fully functioning farm, meaning that children can experience first-hand the day-to-day running of a real farm. We have chicken, rabbits, goats, ponies, donkeys and, who could forget, our world-famous herd of reindeer, including our adorable newly born calves!
