Windmill Animal Farm was first opened to the public in 1992 and offers visitors the chance to experience the every day running of an actual working farm while still having the chance to watch, feed and touch the animals. As well as these beautiful and unusual animals to see, the farm has three marvelous children’s play areas. The indoor play barn, one of the largest in the North West, the new outdoor play area by the main farm complex and the second new outdoor play area by Lake View, which can be reached by our beautiful miniature train that crosses the farm. John Deere Pedal Tractors and Roller Racers can be ridden in their dedicated play areas by the children, who are most welcome to bottle feed the lambs at the appropriate time of the year.
I have visited hundreds of huge and well known attractions and written reviews on them all, but what I pride myself in, is also giving a nod to the slightly smaller attractions within Ireland and the wider British Isles. Attractions that together, make this country a great place to visit, not only for foreign visitors, but for domestic also. Take the Windmill Animal Farm here in the sleepy Lancashire village of Burscough. Complete with its own steam train the ‘Flying Pig’ and its short track, this attraction took me completely by surprise. Open now for almost three decades, this small farm park has a huge personality and one that I won’t forget in a hurry. Windmill Farm has animals from all walks of farm life, but they also should pride themselves on their small collection of Critters and Birds, which I really wasn’t expecting to see. I really love this attraction and I know you will too!
