Summer may be coming to an end – but there’s still plenty to keep the whole family occupied at Newham Grange Country Farm.
The popular Coulby Newham family attraction now has a new two-level soft play area in the room next to the Muddy Boots café, so even if the weather turns inclement there’s still something fun for the little ones to do.
The Farm is a key part of Middlesbrough’s Healthy Town ethos, which aims to make more people more active more often and lead healthier lifestyles.
And the wide range of activities on offer means there’s plenty for younger visitors, with events in the pipeline for the half-term holidays including a spooky walk for Halloween and some craft-making sessions.
The Pony Experience has proven very popular and is available at weekends during term time.
School groups can also combine a visit to the farm with some nature/seasonal studies down in Fairy Dell, which looks particularly beautiful at this time of year.
Councillor Brenda Thompson, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Public Health and Sport, said: “The Farm’s always been a great day out for the whole family, and there are more activities for the whole family than ever before.
“We’re privileged to have such a great green space right at the heart of an urban area like Middlesbrough and I’m sure people will continue to flock to Newham Grange for a great day out.”
The farm is open daily from 10am to 4pm with last tickets available at 3pm. Admission is £3.20 for adults and £2.50 for children.
