For Fun & Families
Are your children Curious, Wild and Free?
Our family sessions offer the chance for children (and adults) to learn, explore and enjoy being hands-on with our animals in a safe and nurturing environment. Connecting with and learning about animals helps children to realise that all animals, including humans, are part of the natural world and that humans, as the caretakers of the planet, have a critical role in protecting all life on earth.
Our sessions address these environmental issues, even with the youngest of children, in a fun and enjoyable way. Why not have a complete break and stay for a night or two in one of our Landpods? Visit goxhillmeadows.co.uk for more.
Please note that we hold all relevant qualifications, insurances and licences to allow us to offer these amazing experiences with our animals. Policies are available on request. Jayne Haigh trading as Glebe Farm Holdings Ltd: Licence – AA8 252608.

"We took our daughter yesterday for the Animal Experience and had such an amazing time! Jane was so welcoming and the whole experience felt so personal and was excellent from start to finish. We met all the animals, groomed the ponies, fed the sheep, collected the eggs, took the ponies for a walk and a trot and even took the baby goats for a walk! I cannot recommend this experience enough…..if you want a fabulous family morning or afternoon out then book this…..you will not be disappointed!!"
"Thanks again Jane, it was wonderful to meet you…….we had a wonderful time and you made a 5 year old girl very happy! We will be back!!"

"Our highlight was how amazing Jayne was with our 9 year old daughter who has been suffering with anxiety recently....jayne spent time with her and the animals and it was so lovely to see how much our daughter got out of it...especially with the horses. It meant so much!!! We will definately return.... I would recommend in a heartbeat!!!"

"Beautiful location! Well cared for animals. Happy ,welcoming owner and staff. The children really enjoyed their animal experience (as did I! ) Jayne is very knowledgeable and happy to answer any animal related questions."
"I can't believe what amazing value the animal experience was! 2 hours at Goxhill meadow and a lifetime of memories. There can't be many places you can say you've been able to fed alpacas and walk goats and miniature ponies among other things! Well worth the money and would be more then happy to return to do it all again! I hope to book an overnight stay in the landpods next year."
