Marsh Farm Country Park

Marsh Farm Road

Marsh Farm Country Park is a demonstration of a commercial working farm and is firm favourite with children who love getting up close to farm animals from chickens, pigs, sheep and cows.

Along the farm trail visitors will meet ponies, goats and other familiar friends in the pet barn. There are daily demonstrations, an extensive play area, as well as the popular tractor and trailer ride into the country park.

The farm is also home to a Visitor Centre, complete with a tea room offering a stunning range of home cooked food plus a gift shop offering the perfect souvenir.

The site also benefits from the adjoining Country Park which is surrounded by the River Crouch and its creeks on three sides. Part of the Country Park is designated as a site of Special Scientific Interest due to these visiting birds and because of the presence of rare plants such as sea barley, sea clover, sea lavender and grass vetchling.
