Cornwall’s farming heritage is celebrated at Dairyland Farm World near Newquay – an all-weather attraction where you can discover what life is really like down on the farm.
The Davey family have been farming on this site since the 1920s and today it’s still a working farm, concentrating on milking alongside the diversification into tourism. Go inside the milking parlour and see the cows being milked or visit the Cornish Heritage Centre which takes you back in time to the 1800s when horses were harnessed to mill the grain, clothes were boiled in copper baths and food was baked in a cloam oven. There’s also an impressive collection of agricultural machinery and artefacts which dates back to the Second World War.
The surroundings are lovely with nature trails and lakes and a massive indoor play centre, The Bull Pen, to keep the youngsters well entertained.
