We have a packed programme of entertainment and plenty of animal encounters to enjoy!
Don’t fret about the weather, join us this February Half Term for a packed programme of activities!
You can meet plenty of animals such as pigs, sheep, ponies, goats and alpacas, join in with the feeding sessions – and even get up close and personal with our smaller furry friends in cuddle corner. Fingers crossed, we may have a lamb or 2 to see! Take time to visit the Kent Owl Academy who are not only home to owls, but you can also meet the Meerkat family too!
Step back in time and visit the Vintage Village, from the Victorian Petts Farmhouse, through to WW2 Lenham Cottages, or enjoy the 1950s Sandling Farmhouse. There’s both indoor and outdoor play areas, tractor or land train rides, a fun wooden hunt with a sweet treat and the chance to get arty in our Paint-a-Pot studio*.

The 28-acre site that constitutes Kent Life has evolved through the years from the historic Sandling Farm, an area that formed part of the wider Allington Castle estate in the mid 16th century – stretching some 461 acres – and was owned by Thomas Wyatt.
The Allington Castle estate, later known as the Cobtree estate, was the property of the Tyrwhitt-Drake family. It passed to the only son Sir Garrard Tyrwhitt-Drake who inherited it after his father passed away in the early 1900s. An eccentric man, Garrard Tyrwhitt-Drake established a small zoo on the grounds and it is believed that he had a fascination for the Zebra, painting black and white stripes on a donkey so he could admire it from his manor! A charitable trust was set up for the Cobtree Estate in 1951.
