Located in Stoke Bruerne, Rookery Open Farm is one of the few farms in Northamptonshire I hadn’t been to. Until recently!
It’s another smaller farm but still a great half day out.
When you arrive at the farm, you enter through the cafe and indoor play area. We always save the playing until the end however this did mean all the way around the boys just kept asking when they could go back and play.
The first animals you see are some chickens. You then go into a large barn where there are rabbits, guinea pigs, goats, birds, sheep and some cows. We were able to go in with the rabbits and goats and pet them.
From here, you head back outside and wander up the hill. On the right is a large open picnic and play area. There were giant combine harvesters and trains for the kids to play on as well as pedal tractors, a sand play area and a large climbing frame.
Opposite this was some go-karts for the older kids to rise. My 6-year-old is quite tall for his age and was just able to reach the pedals.
Other animals to visit outside were some black swans, donkeys and more goats.
Once we had seen the animals we headed to the indoor play area. There is a big play structure that my 8 and 6-year-old LOVED!

This area was for 4-year-olds and up. There was a separate area for the 4 and under. This was a much smaller play frame and a ball pit. However, if your kids are anything like my 3-year-old, they just want to go to the big one! Luckily, the play area was emptying by the time we got there so there weren’t too many kids.
Due to covid visits are restricted to half days. We arrived at 10 am and were finished by 1 pm.
There was a cafe serving snacks, hot drinks and sandwiches. Rookery Open Farm is pushchair and wheelchair friendly and there were baby changing facilities.
Tickets are £7 per adult, £6.50 per child and under 2s are free.
