Overview

Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm is in the middle of the beautiful county of Suffolk in Eastern England and is a small livestock farm breeding farm animals that were once common but are now very rare. It's a great time to bring your whole family to the farm to meet the piglets, feed the goats and let the kids loose in the play area whilst you settle into the calm surroundings with a piece of homemade cake or a cream tea.

A delight for small children to be close to farm animals and to enjoy the countryside. Small , not over commercialised, and above all friendly. Outdoor shoes / boots a must

I'm afraid due to the livestock on the farm, we are unable to allow dogs to visit.
