We met a unicorn! Can you imagine the faces of two little girls when they saw a REAL LIFE unicorn?!We attended the ‘Magical Unicorn Weekend’ at Whitehouse farm, Morpeth this weekend. I saw this event advertised on their Facebook page and immediately booked up! The price was £9.86 per adult, £8.87 per child and Under 2s were free (YEY)! Booking was easy and straightforward with tickets arriving via email immediately. Please note: This was the online price, I think paying on the door was around £1 extra per ticket.From the second we entered the farm everything was unicorn themed! Staff dressed beautiful in unicorn princess dresses, pink and lilac wigs with unicorn horns and lots of glitter. Lydia was amazed when she saw the lady working in the gift shop ‘I just saw a real princess unicorn’. We then headed to the unicorn barn where there were two unicorns out for children to stroke and get photos with.We then went to feed the lambs, there were so many. Charlotte surprised us and fed them herself! Lydia was a bit more hesitant but when she saw her little sister feeding them she got brave. A great idea I saw while in the lamb sheds was a box of dummies where children can donate their dummies to the baby lambs. I think that’s a great way to get rid of them and we might return to do this when it’s time to give Charlottes up!
Next up, the magic show in the events barn! This was great, Magic Steve was fantastic with the children and kept the show simple enough for them to follow but very funny with some pretty cool magic tricks. At the end of the show he sold balloon animals for £1. There was also the option for unicorn glitter tattoos in the events barn which were just £1 too. Great price I thought considering what I’ve seen other places charge.
After the magic show we headed to the small animal handling area, cute bunny’s, skinny pigs, chicks and guinea pigs were all out for people to hold. My girls didn’t want to hold but there was many more that we could go look at. There was also a reptile encounter but, erm, no thanks. Not a spider fan!
There were so many trampolines, bouncy castles, bouncing pillows and play areas that were free for the children to use. The girls played on the tractors and trampoline before heading to see the horses, pigs, goats and wallabies.
Before we left we headed back to the unicorn barn where the unicorns were back out. This time you could brush a unicorn! Lydia and Charlotte both enjoyed this.
We had a fantastic afternoon at this event and I would definitely recommend it. The event ends today so if your local and looking for something to do, GO! But hopefully they will hold another in the future. I have seen on their website they have a superhero weekend and circus week coming up. I was really impressed with the amount of activities going on at the farm. Along with the activities mentioned above you could also; bottle feed the lambs, go on tractor rides, party games in the events barn, bird of prey meet and greet, interactive meerkat talk and feed and a unicorn parade. All of these activities are included in your admission price which I think is amazing.
Thanks for a great experience Whitehouse Farm.
