When: Visit April 2019
One of my friends with a newborn lives in Stanford Le Hope & we couldn’t decide on somewhere to meet for lunch where Frankie would be entertained and we could catch up properly! After a quick google search I came across Walton Hall Farm & headed there last week.
Walton Hall Farm is situated just outside of Stanford Le Hope/Corringham on just under 4 acres of land.
We were greeted by a friendly man on reception who set up a tab for us to go into the softplay area & enjoy lunch.
The softplay is the perfect size for Frankie and boasts, slides, perspex fun tubes, ball pool, swinging ropes and a baby area for under 3’s. Walton Hall Farm – Playtime.
There is also a large outdoor park with slides, swings, climbing frames & a sandpit with picnic benches.
In the courtyard where the shops are there are ride ons for the children too which Frankie whizzed around on whilst we browsed some of the lovely boutique shops including a toy shop & gifts.
I paid £14 for Frankie’s entry, drinks and lunch for both of us which I felt was more than reasonable and was impressed with the childrens selection too. He had a ‘sausage platter’ which was less than £4 and had, mini cocktail sausages, grapes, cucumber, ritz biscuits and a yoghurt – a perfect snacky lunch for a toddler running around! We both had jacket potatoes & nachos on the side which were both tasty and hot and didn’t take long to come out.
They also had homemade cakes & coffees available & a toy train which was just £1 for 3 rides, which of course was Frankie’s favourite thing to do whilst there!
There was plenty of parking & the toilet facilities had baby changing and were clean.
Walton Hall Farm is not an animal farm, although there are some chickens and rabbits running around. They do run themed events throughout the year too such as petting zoo farms, teddy time pj parties & more. All details can be found on their website – Walton Hall Farm – Events.
Additionally they are a bed and breakfast & have caravan and camping facilities too! Walton Hall Farm – Caravan and Camping.
What a great little find! I’d highly recommend if you are looking for somewhere in the Stanford/Corringham area! We’ll definently be back for a fun day soon! x
