Who are we and what do we offer?

The Meadows Farm Village is an interactive animal experience for all the family to enjoy. We welcome couples and friend groups too, so we are not just for children. Our Farm village can be booked for parties, groups and school visits and we can also offer exclusive use to our whole experience!

We are situated on Gypsy Lane, Groeswen, Cardiff CF15 7UN. We specialise in offering a unique experience to interact with a mixture of farm animals. Our animal family includes meerkats, raccoon dogs, wallabies, reindeer, rabbits, guinea pigs, turkeys, chickens, ducks, peafowl, geese, swans, donkeys, alpacas, horses, cows, sheep, micro pigs, pygmy goats and emu.

Other Opportunities!

The Meadows spans over 21 acres, providing opportunities for not just animal interaction but opportunities for a natural county side experience linking to forest schools and the current National Curriculum for schools.

    Absolutely fantastic day here today, staff are amazing and nothing was too much trouble.
    Kids all loved that you could go into the pen to pet the pigs and baby goats. The Guys working there were amazing at encouraging sanitizing us all in-between meeting the animals.

    • I took my children here today with my parents and brother, we were all gobsmacked at how lovely a setting it was!

      The staff are lovely, couldn’t help you enough, plenty to do for the kiddies (and the grown ups ) and most importantly the animals are so well looked after.

      Overall a brilliant day for the whole family! We’ll definitely be visiting again as the entry price was so reasonable; for the activities and experiences offered it’s well worth the money!

      Will definitely recommend to our friends and family! Thank you for a great day out!
