Puxton Park Animal Farm in North Somerset
Today on the blog I’m going to share with you our highlights from our three year membership with Puxton Park. Sounds riveting I know. But hear me out. And this isn’t a sponsored post. We’ve paid for our membership.
If you’re not familiar with the area, Puxton Park is an animal adventure park just off the M5, junction 21. If you’re looking for things to do off the M5 then take a nose here. We signed up at Puxton as members when b turned one and I can absolutely say we got our moneys worth.
B starts school in a few weeks so I imagine we will end the membership, purely because we wont use it mid-week anymore, and I cant see us using it enough to get value from it.
So why did a membership work for us?
Value for Money
Well first up, it was cost-effective. We paid just under £10 a month for the three of us, which meant access 7 days a week. If you pay as you go, you’re looking at around £20 or so each time. We aim to go at least once per month and then we know we got value that month. In honesty we often go more than once a month. I often take b on a Friday or we pop in at a weekend.
We do something different each time
Every time we go, we always do something a bit different. Some days we play outside in the sandpit and enjoy a ride on the train, other days we have a jump on the trampolines and enjoy playing in the fort. We always do something different!
Perfect for Rainy Days
Following on from the point above, we find it an easy option if we’re stuck for something to do on a rainy day. Yes the indoor play barn can get busy when it’s wet but take a Friday during school time and it’s dead. We sometimes have the place practically to ourselves.
On our Doorstep!
Puxton is literally a five minute drive for us. It’s ideal if we want to do something but don’t fancy a long drive!
Loads to do
Puxton has a tonne of stuff to do for little ones. You have the indoor play (it could be updated a bit) and then you have outdoor play. There’s a huge digger themed sandpit, a bouncey pillow (loads of fun!) and trampolines set in the ground.
You’ve then got all the animals to see. They are typically farm animals but there are some meerkats and reptiles. One thing we’ve loved doing more now that b is older is thr nature walk through the woods. It isn’t a long walk but long enough for b to enjoy. We always take a little peek at the birds of prey too. They do a show most days and these have been really great. Again, every time we go we do something different. We’re never bored.
Do you have membership to an attraction like Puxton? In my opinion its been real value for money as we can pop in any time. We sometimes spend half a day and other times we pop in for just an hour.
