Chudleigh’s Farm

Chudleigh’s Farm

Well here we are folks, the eve of pumpkin spice season!

If you happen to be a fern or a hydrangea then you probably loved the summer of 2017.  But alas, we now approach Autumn….time for farms, fall leaves, cursing yourself because you’re last minute with Halloween costumes again – even after the fiasco of last year when you swore you were going to be on top of things this time…

To help break up the stress of 5-year-old-halloween-costume-idea-changes every.five.minutes…let’s checkout a farm – Chudleigh’s Farm in Milton!

 Towers and slides at Chudleigh's Farm

A Fun Milton Activity for Toddlers, Kids and the Whole Family

Towers, slides, tire swings, sandbox, animals, nature trail and more….

We haven’t been to too many farms as yet.  Last year we started to sample a few of them and this year they seem to appeal to our family a bit more.

Our 3 and 5 year old enjoyed Chudleigh’s Farm and I think it was a good age range for this farm.

We went on a very windy day in August.  It was too early for pick-your-own apples or any type of corn or pumpkin activities.  But possibly a great time to avoid crowds. I’m not too sure what this farm has in store once Sep/Oct rolls around.

Here’s the rundown.

Tire Swings

My 3 year old loved these! There are a few of them here.

Towers and Slides

This is a big attraction here.  The slides on each of the towers are wide enough for my bum + my kids to fit comfortably!

These structures are quite tall and some of the slides are pretty steep.  My 5 year old was a bit apprehensive at first, but warmed up fairy quickly.  At 5 years old, he could climb the latter to the towers and navigate the structures and the slides.

5 year old had no problem climbing and navigating.

I think they were a touch too big for my 3 year old though.  Some of the slides are not as steep, so she was ok with those ones, but she struggled with some of the ladders to get up to the towers – which meant I had to wedge myself up there to help her out.

If you have a 3 year old (or younger) I don’t think they could navigate independently.  So be prepared to climb up there yourself, or direct them to one of the many other activities…

Sandbox

Decent size, with a shaded area plus a little ‘house’ and a few sand toys.
