It can be difficult to find new places to entertain the troops when it’s not beach weather. Putlake Adventure Farm in Swanage could be just the ticket. This children’s farm is home to a medley of friendly animals including cows and alpacas, pigs, tortoises, chipmunks, chinchillas and chickens. You can groom the ponies, bottle-feed and lambs and goats and cuddle the cute rabbits and guinea pigs. Mitsy the Bengaleze Owl and Liquorice and Allsorts the friendly farm cats are never too far away from the action!
Explore by tractor and enjoy trampolines, pedal tractors and go karts too. Putlake is also a venue for parties, and a popular camping site for families. If the weather closes in, Putlake also has an exciting indoor soft play centre – at three storeys high the kids will discover a ball pit, mazes, slides, a zip wire and bouncy castle too. And there’s plenty room for their grown-ups to pull up a pew and enjoy a coffee while supervising the fun!
