** Announcement **
We’d like to make our customers aware that from Mon 4th November 2019, Red House Farm will be closing to the public. Sadly the regulatory requirements and associated costs of running a children’s play site have reached the point where the operation is no longer viable.
The site will continue as normal until the end of the Halloween event, and we stress that all existing obligations including functions and birthday parties will be honoured. We have birthday parties booked in until Sun 3rd November, which will be the final day of public opening.
(The physiotherapist, chiropractor and reflexologist will continue unaffected after this date, as will yoga classes, boot camp and mama bod squad.)
The business will remain in the Clare family where it has resided for generations, and will continue as a working farm, expanding the organic free range egg production and growing more organic crops. We will also be hosting various activities including educational visits, and likely running one-off events, notably the annual Pumpkin Picking festival.
However, party activities will cease, and the farm shop, café and play area will be closing.
It’s a decision we’ve taken with considerable regret, however each passing year has seen a significant increase in running costs. We’ve made every attempt to streamline our offering, but we have been left with no resource to invest in improving our facilities and it’s become increasingly difficult to maintain standards. As we head into turbulent economic times, the closure of other similar operations in the area in recent months has provided a stark indication of the state of the sector.
We’d like to thank all our patrons through the years, and hope you all have fond memories of spending time with your families at Red House Farm.
