Oh how we love Stick Man! The Julia Donaldson tale of the adventures of Stick Man and his stick family three are loved the world over, so we’re excited to say that a new Stick Man trail has arrived at Beetle Bank Farm. Aimed at children aged 2 to 6, follow the trail to find the different characters and enjoy exploring nature at the same time. Activity packs and official merchandise are available to purchase, too.
If you’ve never visited Beetle Bank Farm, then it’s a good excuse for a visit. This small, family-run working farm is set in 28 acres of Yorkshire countryside, a short hop from the city. The highlight of our visit was the petting barn – we’re suckers for cute animals, so it was great to get up close to them and even feed them. There’s also an adventure playground, sandpit and if weather permits, inflatables (good luck extracting your kids – ours would have stayed on them the whole day). A cafe serving homemade hot and cold snacks and cakes is the icing on the, erm, cake.
