Come and tickle a piglet this bank holiday

Throughout the summer there is always so much to do at Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm, including exploring the lair of the Giant Woozle Snark.

Situated in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, on the banks of the River Gipping, the farm is a delight for animal and countryside lovers alike. During spring, regulars to the farm will have seen plenty of new arrivals – lambs, piglets, kids and Tilly the calf. But in addition to these youngsters there are all the regulars waiting to mount a charm offensive, in the hope of a little food and attention.

But if tickling piglets is more your thing, look out for the wandering ones – they could be anywhere and love to have their bellies tickled.

Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm is six miles north west of Ipswich, off the B1113 between Great Blakenham and Needham Market. It opens Tuesday to Sunday and Bank Holidays from 10am to 5pm. With entry prices at £7 for adults, £6 for concessions, £3 for children (aged 4-16) and free entry for under fours, it would be difficult to find a more diverting and better value attraction in Suffolk. The farm café is open all day, selling cakes, lunches, hot and cold drinks and ice cream.
