Lawrence Weston Community Farm, Bristol: A Hit with Kids


If you fancy taking your children somewhere in Bristol which is outdoors, fun, family friendly and free, there are several fantastic community farms in Bristol.

My kids and I ventured to Lawrence Weston Community Farm over the holidays and it proved an absolute hit! Lawrence Weston Community Farm is open 9.30am – 4.30pm Tuesday – Sunday, all year round.

It includes pigs, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks and bees!


There is a little play area which my kids made full use out of.




Lawrence Weston Community Farm proved a surprise to me as behind the back of the farm are miles of fields and green space galore which I just wasn’t expecting.


My kids especially loved the little lanes and tiny woodland paths round the back of the farm and they spent a good while running up and down the “mountain” (slope) with excitement.

We followed the little woodland path up which led to some fields with sheep and baby lambs!


Not a feature of the farm but within view of it, are some wind turbines which my children found fascinating!

There was also an orchard to explore.

From a mum’s point of view, Lawrence Weston Community Farm is small enough to keep sight of your kids yet big enough for them to roam and explore, along with enough animals and activities to keep them occupied.

Lawrence Weston Community Farm proved to be a worthwhile and fun trip out. It offers children farm animals, nature, fresh air, play and adventure within a safe and green environment.

And all for free 🙂
