If you’re looking for some inspiration for a day out in the school holidays, then why not pay a visit to Hestercombe House and Gardens where the 2nd Chance Petting Farm will be visiting every Wednesday throughout the school holidays. 

From 24th July to 28th July between 1030am and 330pm you and your family will have the opportunity to meet a wonderful variety of rescue animals.

Some of the friendly animals available to meet include an adorable donkey who loves making new friends as well as a miniature Shetland pony - a small but spirited character who is sure to charm you. There are also plenty of playful and curious sheep and goats as well as some smaller animals who love a cuddle like the rabbits and guinea pigs.

It’s a wonderful day out for all ages where you can learn about all the animals and enjoy some one to one time getting to know these furry characters.

To find out more, head over to the Hestercombe website here or call them on 01823 413923.
