Ash End House Children's Farm is a family owned farm which was established over 25 years ago, after a neighbouring nursery school arranged to visit with their children and so the idea was born! The aim of Ash End House Children's Farm is to provide both an enjoyable and educational hands on experience for children of all ages. Contact with many of the animals is encouraged, and children are given food for feeding them. Plenty of undercover areas allow the farm to be enjoyed in all weathers.

Near the end of this dual carriageway, turn right onto unclassified road (signposted for the Farm). Continue on this road, past turnings to the right (Middleton), left (Hunts Green), and right again (Middleton).
