Having heard such good reports about the Heads of Ayr Farm Park from guests, we decided to go and take a look for ourselves and took along my sister, her husband and their 11 year grand daughter not really knowing for sure what to expect. But wow, what a fabulous time we had … there were lots of attractions for children including inflatable pillows (great fun for the older generation too!), trampolines, sand pits, “death slide”, indoor soft play as well as these:
At this point I should point out that the park was full of children but it took beloved some time to get photos without the children in for child protection reasons!!
There were lots of lovely animals to look at, pet and feed too. Giant rabbits, grey parrots, zebra finches, monkeys, etc, along with:
But for me the star attraction was Ralph:
If I could I would have spent the entire day feeding Ralph!!
We spent four hours there but could have stayed so much longer. My tips … take a packed lunch and a flask (there’s lots of picnic areas), make sure you catch the animal feeding times and make sure you have plenty of time to see everything. I was impressed by the number of animals that you could stroke and feed (bags of pellets are sold at 50p each) and by the number of basins around the park to wash and sanitise hands. The animals looked so well cared for and were used to being hand fed so came greedily to the fences when they spotted bags of pellets. The vast majority of activities inside the park are included in the £10 admission charge (£8 children); go-carting being one exception.
My only problem now is how to smuggle the lovely Ralph home 🙂
