10 Reasons Why You Need To Visit Folly Farm

Adventure Park & Zoo

Lioness at Folly Farm

It is no secret that here at The Rees Family Adventures, we love Folly Farm. It’s somewhere that I (Stacey) have been visiting since I was a child and I just love making memories with my own children here.

Read on to discover why we love this place so much and why you absolutely should visit.

Farm Origins

Folly Farm started back in 1988 and unlike what the attraction is today, it was very much a farm where you could see some animals, watch cows being milked and bottle feed lambs.

As a child I remember sitting on bales of hay, awaiting the bottle-feeding chaos and jumping headfirst into the hay in their hay barn!

Over the years I have watched this attraction grow from a small farm to the 120-acre zoo and funfair attraction it is now and I’m truly impressed by all that they have achieved.

Folly Farm will always hold a special place in my heart. 

So let’s get straight into it, here are 10 reasons why you must visit this fabulous attraction in Pembrokeshire.

I love going to Folly Farm and seeing the baby piggies, meerkats and going on the fun rides!

I love Folly Farm! The lions and the penguins are my favourite. I love the rides too. The Skid and Sizzler are really fun.


Final Thoughts

As you can see, whether you are local or visiting the South Wales area, a day at Folly Farm Adventure Park & Zoo is not to be missed. I’ve been visiting since I was a child and I’m still not bored of the place.

Make sure you arrive early though, this is a full-day park and I guarantee you will need to drag your kids away.
