Seasonal Events on the Farm

As well as the daily feed runs, train rides and weekly activity hour there are certain seasonal events we run throughout the year to make your holiday special.

Baby Animals

We aim to have some newborn animals throughout the season, if you are trying to book your holiday around your favourites this chart may help, though nothing is guaranteed in nature.

New Year

At New Year we have an early fireworks show and drinks where we welcome all our guests to pop along and join in the celebrations, before this there is a craft session for the children to make “safe sparklers” and learn about New Year.


On Easter Sunday we have magic chickens who lay chocolate eggs for the children to find. There is also an Easter Egg Hunt following the feed run which the children adore. For more Easter fun join our Activity hour with Easter Crafts in the weeks leading up to Easter.



Halloween is an entire day full of themed events including a spooky Fancy Dress feed run, themed games and crafts and a very popular ghost train. No Halloween would be complete without trick or treating and here at Coombe Mill we have a great organised tour. Note we run our Halloween fun day in October half term holiday week, and again on 31st October if this is also a half term week and we are busy. 



Properties booked at Christmas will have a large high quality real effect tree complete with lights and a box of baubles and tinsel ready for you to decorate on arrival.  We also have a fun seasonal craft session for the children, a Santa Grotto in the train tunnel and party in the games room. That’s before you head out and about to discover all the wonderful local lights and and Santa sightings.


Please note the seasonal activities will only take place if we have sufficient properties booked and interest from those staying.
