The thing that I was most excited about on our trip to Wimpole House was to see all the newborn lambs! I honestly think I enjoyed myself more than all the kids there haha! From the 7th-26th April (it ends tomorrow), they have a whole tent set up for the newborn lambs and their mums, all of which have been born in the last 48 hours before being moved out to individual pens and then the fields.
Not only did we get to see loads of lambs, but some baby goats, calfs, piglets and chickens (though the cows were about 6 months old and the chickens were no longer little chicks). I was in my element! I could have stayed in there watching them run around, jumping all over their mum all day! They also have donkey grooming and feeding the pigs too, but we got there a little late in the day for that.
A visit to the farm is seriously recommended if you’re anywhere near Cambridge this weekend, although entry to the farm isn’t inluded with a National Trust membership, it is at a discounted rate of £4 per adult, which I couldn’t complain about for all the fun and excitement we had! You can find out more on the National Trust website here.
