Family Day out - Aldenham Country Park/ Farm

Last year I visited my first pumpkin patch at Aldenhams Country Park / Farm.
I was 10 months pregnant and saw they had a whole Halloween theme on the farm for children so my husband and I vowed when our little one was here we would go back.

Fast forward to October this year and guess where we went? Yes.. Aldenhams Country Park / Farm - with Aria and our friends.

 Its a super cute place for your little ones and especially at halloween as they have activities on at the Farm and its all decorated to make it feel spooky (but not scary).


On arrival you pay in the farm shop for entry (£6.00 per adult) and £4.50 for the car park. 
You have the option to purchase feed for the animals / pumpkin decorating / ride on the tractor and other activities but I didn't see a breakdown in prices so I would check with them first before you spend a small fortune.

We just paid for entry and the car park as Aria is still quite young for the activities but I advise you to take cash (they do accept card).

Once in you can walk around and see all the animals and we saw a lot! 
So many people were feeding them and having pictures. 
Even though it was very busy it was pleasant!


Its a small layout which means everything is easily accessible and pram friendly if you needed to take one with you. We preferred to carry Aria so she could see everything.

Once we had seen all the farm animals we went straight to the pumpkin patch - I was slightly disappointed it wasn't as big as last year but the Farm compensated with more animals and more to do. One other negative would be the sheet of plastic/ mesh under the pumpkins as it didn't has the authentic pumpkin patch feel.
However despite all that it was still enjoyable to look at them all and choose one!


After all the pumpkin fun we decided to go on the tractor ride which lasted about ten minutes, it slowly went around the pumpkin patch and farm animals.. playing themed music.
The ride was £2 per adult.. it was quite nice to give our legs a rest and taken the fresh air and enjoy the view!


Shortly after the ride I fell in love with a scarecrow .. they have these dotted around which as you can see form my face I LOVE and we headed to Farmer Jacks spooky shack.

Overall it was a lovely few hours spent in the autumn sunshine on the farm.
The various activities make it that more exciting than just a farm and looking around all the families looked as though they were enjoying it.

To be honest... I think it will be.. the same again next year!

Aldenham Country Park is in Elstree - Radlett WD6 3BA.
