Amerton Farm Review – A day out with kids in Staffordshire
it was a rainy Saturday morning and I had organised a play date for my little boy and our friends. We decided to head to Amerton Farm as there is a great indoor play barn – Billy’s Barn.
The farm is well signposted and car parking is free – with plenty of spaces.
We headed straight to Billy’s barn and to my surprise it was fairly quiet for a Saturday morning compared to some of the soft play centres we have visited before. There are tables set out with a cafe and a large wooden play area, themed on the local village of Stowe by Chartley – it is paradise for any little adventurer/ climber.
There is a black & white thatch cottage, Church, Farmhouse and Cock Inn with its own fireman’s pole. A large Grain Store with a chute, the old Village School, the Village Farm Shop and the Village Hall. The Church forms part of a baby sensory area and toddler area.
You can order drinks, sandwiches, hot snacks and cakes from the cafe area whilst the kids go and burn off some energy. – This can really add to the cost though, so bring a packed lunch if you can.
Outside is Billy’s Farm barn, where you can visit the farm animals including cows, pigs, horses, chickens, alpacas and rabbits. You can pet the animals, and animal food can be purchased on the entrance and costs £1 per bag. There are plenty of hand washing stations around the farm too.
There is an outdoor play area, bouncy pillows (these we closed during our visit), ride on tractors, and a large sand pit too. the boys loved the old Fergie Tractor where children can have a ‘drive’ and get their photo taken.
The boys loved the ride on carts and the outdoor climbing area. The farm wasn’t too busy at all, and it was a lovely morning out.

Amerton Farm Review: Final thoughts
There is so much to do at Amerton Farm for kids of all ages.
Although we didn’t buy the alpaca experience, you can book to spend some time with the alpacas, and this includes a full hour walking the Alpaca, getting to know them and learning about their individual characters. We will save that for another day!
The play barn offers a great space to shelter from the rain and to let the children burn off some energy. The kids LOVED to meet the animals and you can also purchase animal food to feed the animals too. The staff were friendly and I loved that the farm was not too busy. All in all, Amerton farm in Staffs offers a great day out with kids in Staffordshire!
