Bath City Farm is set on the hillside between Whiteway and Twerton among 37 acres of land with panoramic views of the City. It is the largest city farm in the South-West, and is a registered charity relying solely on donations to keep it going. Regular volunteer days are run, along with school visits, education courses, after school and holiday activities for young people and families as well as events and celebrations for the whole community. Visitors are welcome to visit the animals and wander the fields at any time, without prior permission and at no charge.
(Opens in separate window)
The car park is only open when staff are present.
Picnic area enjoying spectacular views of the City.
There is disabled access at the main entrance but the walk around the farm takes approximately 1.5 hours and much of the ground is uneven and unsuitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
Please take all litter with you and clean up after your dog.
Dogs must be kept on a lead.
