Darts Farm is a great place to visit all year round. There is a cafe on the ground floor which serves all manner of local goodies which you can also buy within the shop. For those who love cider and ale there is plenty to choose from and from my own personal experience it's very nice! There is also a butchers, bakery, deli counter and a fish and chip shop just outside. The toilets are located on the ground floor next to the toy shop so the kids won't go bored. General clothing is also on the ground floor whilst camping and outdoors is upstairs. The RSPB Shop is on the top floor and I often pop in there to catch up on what's going on or topping up on bird supplies. There are often walks and talks ran by the RSPB running from March right up to November in most cases.
Outdoors there is a large open space which features a small kids park and an old tractor. There are also animals from time to time and the last time I checked they had a very cute pair of Lama's. There are plenty of trees throughout the grounds, although the larger ones are mostly found on the wetlands and near the bird hide. You have to be quiet as there is often people fishing as well as keen birders. On the wetlands there are lots of alders and willows due to the damp conditions. There are a few oak trees buts these are very small. There is also a lonely apple tree next to an old gate . Along the main paths are a row of Sycamores and also a mixture of Poplars.
