Pocket Guide: Old MacDonalds Farm Old MacDonalds Farm Hotels

Hertfordshire is still a largely rural county, consisting of great tracts of farmland which continue to supply residents in London and the Home Counties with much of their food. As such, it's worth delving a little deeper into the farming heritage of the county and exploring aspects of its operation. This could be done in the traditional and stuffy way of gazing at endless exhibits of period farm implements and artefacts from bygone days. That is guaranteed to put the kids off! So an alternative is to see a working farm in operation at a site such as Old MacDonald's Farm. This is just over the border in Essex, but it can be easily reached from your Hertfordshire hotel or guesthouse base. Just head for Brentwood and ask for directions.

Hertfordshire Hotels for Fun at Old Macdonald's Farm

Animals are of course very much in evidence at Old MacDonald's Farm, with animal petting being one of the most popular activities enjoyed by children here. Getting up close to ducks, chickens, geese and pigs is the best way of getting to know them, and animal feeding is especially popular. It's all supervised by qualified experts so there's no problem with allowing even very small children to get their hands dirty and have a good time. The farm attracts visitors from London, where many small children have never seen a pig or sheep in the flesh and for them it can be a really transformative experience. So whether you're booked into a guesthouse in London or a hotel in Hertfordshire, try to come along here with the kids for a great day out.

Old Macdonald's Farm from Hertfordshire Hotels

There are plenty of other things going on at Old MacDonald's Farm, such as the famous indoor soft play area, which features soft play indoor cannons and a popular 'Battle Barn' where the kids can run amok in complete safety. The farm is also very popular for holding children's birthday parties, and schools come here to educate smaller kids about various aspects of life on a working farm. Stay at a local Hertfordshire hotel and you're guaranteed a fabulous experience here.
