If you and your family love nothing more than getting back to nature,  then opt for a visit to one of the many farms situated throughout the country.  Katie Ogle, mum to 18-month old Mary, says, ‘Mary gets so excited when we visit the farm, she loves feeding the chickens and the lambs.’

Another fan of nature is Lesley Colquhoun Banks, mum to toddler Eilidh; ‘we often visit the local farm park to see the new calves and lambs, and on our most recent visit the flowers were blooming, so she learned all about Spring and new life. It was great for her to see nature changing.’

Here's some suggestions:
