Folly Farm is one of Wales’ most popular family attractions and is especially suited to younger children. We visited on a Sunday in August during the Summer Holidays with our 2 year old and 6 month old to see what the hype was all about.
Where is Folly Farm?
Folly Farm is located 6 miles from Tenby and 5 miles from Bluestone Resort in Kilgetty, Pembrokeshire.
Can you stay at Folly Farm?
Folly Farm also has a holiday park set in 100 acres of countryside. The Park includes camping and touring pitches, ‘Showman’s Wagons’ and a self catering cottage. You can check availability and pricing here.
What is there to do at Folly Farm?
Folly Farm is set in 120 acres and includes indoor and outdoor play areas, a zoo, a barn with farm animals and a fairground. It really is huge so you probably won’t get to see all of it on your first visit. The whole park is buggy/wheelchair accessible so it’s a good idea to take one if your little is likely to get tired walking around for hours. We arrived at 10am when the park opens and stayed for 4 hours. During this time we visited the zoo and barn, took a ride on the land train and played in Carousel Woods indoor play area.
What Zoo animals live at Folly Farm?
We were impressed by the variety of animals in Folly Farm Zoo which includes Giraffes, Lions, Rhinos, Giant Tortoise, Penguins, Monkeys and Meerkats.
How much does it cost to visit?
Although it isn’t cheap, I think Folly Farm is good value for money given the amount they have there. If you are planning to visit three or more times in a year it is cheaper to buy an annual pass.
Ticket Prices 2021:
|Ticket||Day Price||Annual Pass|
|Child (3-15 years)||£17.95||£45|
|Toddler (2 years)||£12.95||£30|
|Family Annual pass||£184|
Some activities such as the fair ground rides require you to purchase tokens at an extra cost to your ticket price. We avoided this area as our children were too young for these rides. I would also take a picnic as food and drink is quite expensive and nothing special.
