Folly Farm, Pembrokeshire, Wales

| 15 Comments

I have visited Folly Farm since I was two weeks old! Mummy used to take my older brother and sisters too when they were little. We are lucky to live very nearby, and we visit a lot.

We were very excited to be asked back to review the park again and went along for the day last month.

It was much quieter being out of season, but still quite busy. Near the entrance is the Interactive Barn with all sorts of creatures inside – and parrots who come out to say hello.

What is new?

The most exciting new animals for us were the Sloth and the black Rhino. Living in with the Sloth in the Interactive Barn are some fruit bats who are really big – much bigger than the little bats you are probably thinking of. They were awake and quite lively too – we couldn’t grab a photo, it was hard to snap them through the enclosure, and they were quite high up.

We only saw one rhino – a girl we believe, and she lay in a corner of her indoor pen. A whole new house has been built for the rhino and it is fantastic – you can see her really closely and clearly. There is a male too who is kept separately.

We put together a little video of my very favourite animals at Folly Farm and Zoo – the lions, giraffes, zebras and sheep.

Folly Farm has won the National Tourism Awards best day out in Wales and it really is. There is something for everyone – all sorts of farm and zoo animals – and the only giraffes and lions in Wales. There is a large indoor vintage funfair with rides suitable for all ages, and a huge indoor play area – Carousel Woods with several smaller soft play and climbing play areas around the massive barn.

You can take your own food, there are plenty of eating areas inside and out, or choose to eat in the restaurant, or burger bar with oodles of seating.

There is constantly works being carried out – the cafe in the entrance area was undergoing a refurb, and there was lots of painting and maintenance work going on. It didn’t distract us in any way – it just reminded us how Folly Farm is always being updated and is kept so tidy.
