*Important Information About our Indoor Play Area*
Whilst we are delighted that it has been announced that soft play areas can re-open, as yet, we have not received the Government Guidelines required for us to do so.
Therefore, at this time we are unable to confirm a date that the Indoor Play at Mead Open Farm will re-open. We are hoping this will be very soon, however, we need to ensure we can provide the safest experience possible for all of visitors and adhere to all guidelines as set by the Government. Please follow our social media pages or visit our website for the most up-to-date information.
However, our award-winning Grainstore Kitchen remains open with strict limiting of entry including social distancing queuing as well as a reduced menu in place. Click Here to See the Menu

Magical Veggie Wood
Based within Shaggy’s Huge PlayWorld, climb high into the veggie tower, zoom down slides, hear the broccoli sing and play in the Giant Pumpkin! Please note that children must have their arms and legs covered to ride on the slides in Shaggy’s PlayWorld, and socks must be worn at all times while playing in the PlayWorld.
Named after the Farm’s cuddly mascot, Shaggy’s indoor PlayWorld is huge – totalling over 13,000 sq feet! And with the Magical Veggie Wood too, it’s now even bigger. Located in the heart of the action, Shaggy’s PlayWorld provides over 300 seats, a Cafe serving meals, snacks and drinks and loads of fabulous indoor play equipment. The kids will have a ball as they zoom down the 65ft astra slides, brave giant drop slides, clamber over shiver chicanes and scramble zigzag net climbers. There’s just so much to do! Please note that children must have their arms and legs covered to ride on the slides in Shaggy’s PlayWorld, and socks must be worn at all times while playing in the PlayWorld.
Loads of safe, gentle fun for the Under 5’s! Located in Shaggy’s PlayWorld, it’s a designated area for smaller children designed with them in mind. Discover bags of soft play, a ball pit and slides. Your little ones can run wild while the grown-ups enjoy a tea or coffee from The Grain Store Kitchen.
Indoor Animal Activities
We’ve designed the Farm to be fun and interactive in all weathers, so many of our animal activities take place in our four large animal barns – out of the rain and wind! Whatever the weather, you can always come and stroke our rabbits at Bunny Hop, hand-feed and bottle-feed our lambs, marvel at the antics of our pygmy goats and groom our lovely little ponies. So don’t let the weather put you off – come and get some fresh air and fun down at the Farm!
Whatever age they are, children will have a fantastic time in Shaggy’s PlayWorld, with its massive playframe packed with fun things to do for older kids, while Mini Moo’s Imagination Village and soft play area for Under 5’s provides fun and stimulation for toddlers and pre-schoolers.
