- Beetle Bank Farm is a lovely, family-run farm just outside York with lots to appeal to young children. The petting barn is a highlight for us, with lots of very sweet animals to see, stroke and even feed. There’s plenty of space to play, too, with an adventure playground, outdoor animals and even inflatables when the weather’s playing ball. There’s a cafe serving hot and cold home-cooked food, and picnic tables if you fancy taking your own grub.
Good to know – watch out for special events throughout the year, especially during the school holidays, and there’s a Stick Man trail too
