Pitch up and Play @ Lower Drayton Farm…

Book a play-cation with a difference down on the farm!

Pitch up & PLAY is BACK for Summer 2024!

We had some very happy campers last year at the farm, so we’re delighted to announce that you can once again pack your tent & camping gear and join us for a staycation with a difference.

You’ll get your own spacious grass pitch on which to put up your tent for up to 6 people (this isn’t glamping, it’s a good, old-fashioned family camping experience in the countryside)

If you’re one of our lovely PLAY members, you can camp for FREE (then make the most of your FREE entry to PLAY@ while you stay, too)!

Stay – and PLAY!

With 2km of indoor play space featuring 6-metre high racing astro slides, gravity drop slides, Ninija Llama run, vertigo-inducing skywalk – and more – there’s loads to keep even the most energetic entertained. The littlest family members, meanwhile, can play safely in Piglets’ Playpen for under 2s, and adventurous under 5s have their very own 3-storey playframe and role play area to inspire young imaginations.

When you’re done exploring the indoor space, you can head outdoors for even more fun – discovering the racing zipwires, grass toboggan raceway, bouncy pillows, sand & water play, Farm-u-la-One go-karts and Treetop Towers climbing frame. You can also hop on board the farm trailer ride for fun – yet informative – tour of our 750 acre beef and arable farm to learn all about what’s happening at the time of your visit, and you’ll also find lots of friendly animals to meet – from pigs, cattle and sheep in our large animal zone to bunnies, Guinea Pigs and our resident meerkats in the small animal area.

When you’ve worked up an appetite, why not treat the family to a home cooked lunch from our Honeypots Café menu – which includes our legendary grass fed, farm bred and raised Aberdeen Angus beef burgers.

All this just a short stroll down the lane from your tent – so when you’re all played out there’s not far to travel ‘home’.

Honeypots Cafe

More to Discover…

If you feel you need a break from the rollercoaster of PLAY@ fun, there’s plenty to explore in the local area – Cannock Chase’s 26 miles of AONB designated heathland is a mecca for wildlife lovers, walkers and mountain bikers alike while, if you enjoy a dose of history, there are several historic houses within striking distance – including the National Trust’s Shugborough Hall and English Heritage’s Boscobel House.

If you have any questions please contact our Camping team on [email protected] or call 01785 907440.

Tonight our farm team have started sowing our first 2024 environmental crops before the forecast rain 🌧️. 
These crops have 6 different species of plants 🌱 in the same field, they will provide flowers for our bees 🐝 pollination this summer and seeds for our birds 🐦 to eat in the winter. 
As well as providing habitat for lots of other insects 🐞 on the farm. 🌺🌽🌾🌻
You can learn more about farming and conservation on our summer farm trailer rides - all part of your PLAY@ visit!

Here’s Farmer Richard talking all about our new Farm Droid, Seed 3-PO; how it’s allowing us to test growing new crops at Lower Drayton Farm and how farming has changed in the 100 years since his grandad first started farming the land here using horse power!
PLAY@ visitors will be able to ‘meet’ Seed 3-PO this summer and we’ll also be out and about at various events with the farming robot as the centre of our Children’s Farm stand - the theme this year being ‘Farming for the Future: Embracing Technology’.
So, if you’re heading to Happy for you to the Staffordshire County Show, Love Cheese Live, the Stone Food & Drink Festival, Newport Show or Penkridge Children’s Markets make sure you stop by and say hello! 🤖
