Mouse Town arrives at Fairytale Farm

Mouse TownA brand new indoor attraction opens at Fairytale Farm on 26th July 2014: 'Mouse Town'. This beautifully crafted model village is located inside a former stable building and features a quaint English rural town, complete with shops, church, houses, village pond and jail. But what makes it different from other model villages is that it is home to a family of mice who can be seen going about their daily business.

Adults will be impressed with the attention to detail in this stunning model town, built by craftsmen. Children will love watching our family of white and grey mice scampering around, looking out of windows, shopping in the butchers and cheese shop and visiting the spooky graveyard.

Such is the incredible detail of the model town, children are challenged to spot interesting features in the Town, such as 'The Cat in the Jail', 'A Penny Farthing', 'Cheese in the Window' and a 'Hot Air Balloon'.

Mouse Town will open at 10am on Saturday 26th July, and is one of the many attractions that are free once you have entered Fairytale Farm. It will stay open every day until 2nd November.

Sleeping Beauty comes to Fairytale Farm

The magical fairytale character Sleeping beauty has arrived at Fairytale Farm in a new display on our Fairytale Street. You can see her peacefully sleeping in her beautiful castle awaiting her prince. We have also opened the Hansel and Gretel scene, which pictures the moment when the witch climbs inside the oven to show Gretel how it is done.

The sets have been designed and built by theatre designer, Rhyannon Richardson, and have taken several months of design, preparation and construction. They opened for the first time on Easter Saturday and were an instant hit with our visitors.

Easter Monday is your last chance to visit the Easter Bunny in the Giant Rabbit Burrow. The Burrow is open from 10am to 4.30pm on Easter Monday (with a lunch break), so come and visit, meet the Bunny, listen to a lovely Easter story and come away with a golden egg.

All the usual attractions are open, including the Enchanted Walk with its water play area, Huff and Puff adventure playground and Alfie & Friends animal zone. We will be holding our popular 'Walking with Alpacas' events throughout the Easter holidays, except the Easter weekend itself, when we will be having a special event.

Fairytale Farm owner Nick Laister says: "We wanted to do something different over the Easter weekend at Fairytale Farm and we think we have come up with something that younger children will love. Our visitors can enter our new rabbit burrow and meet a giant Easter rabbit. The rabbit will be telling a lovely Easter tale and giving away Easter eggs to every child that visits. There are lots of other Easter-related activities for our visitors to enjoy, including an Easter egg hunt. And everything is accessible for those with disabilities."

The Easter event runs from 18th to 21st April (Good Friday, Easter Saturday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday inclusive). Open 10am to 5pm. The rabbit burrow has an extra charge of £3 per child, which includes the burrow visit, Easter story and an Easter egg. More details below.
