About Us

Ash End House Childrens farm opened for birthdays parties on the Farm in 1981, soon after schools became interested in our tours and we then opened to the public in 1986.
Ash End House Farm has now become an established favourite visitor attraction for all generations - some of our early birthday party children are now booking birthdays for their own children!

Over the years we have constantly "ploughed" in money earned to improve facilities and add more and more attractions to entertain our young and old visitors alike...and we still have a filing cabinet full of ideas waiting to be developed!

We look forward to meeting you on your visit, oh and don't forget your camera!
