Family Day Out at Rare Breeds Farm

| September 7, 2013

We had a great family day out at Rare Breeds Farm in Kent for Ilya’s 3rd Birthday celebration. Ilya is Imogen’s cousin and he is such a charming, gentle and fun little boy. Imogen was so excited to see him and they spent the day viewing the farm animals, enjoying a special Birthday party lunch, watching butterflies in the Butterfly Tunnel, playing in the playground and going for a ride in the tractor trailer seated on hay bales.


Imogen and Ilya adore one another and shared their delight of being on the farm. Holding hands they chattered and giggled as they ran around in the sunshine.

It was wonderful for Imogen to play with her cousin for an entire day!

We all enjoyed the amazing playground at the farm.

We had a super day at Rare Breeds Farm. A big thank you to Kristina and family for organising such a special day for everyone.

  1. What a lovely place to spend a birthday! It’s uncanny how it has so many similar attractions to us at Coombe. Beautiful pictures of Ilya and Imogen having great fun together, thanks for sharing on Country Kids.

      Family friendly farms are such great places to visit! Perhaps we will come to Coombe one day soon, it would be lovely to meet you all and discover your beautiful rural setting.

  2. This looks like a lovely place for a family day out. It’s great when cousins are close in age and get on well together.

      Hi Gretta, I agree! I’ve always been close to my cousins so it’s lovely to see Imogen now playing with hers. Your blog has a great selection of family days out x

  3. Wow looks like lots of fun… Love the photos. They are totally cute, Noah and Isla have no cousins at the moment ;( I need to work on that haha x
