To celebrate the summer holidays, Kent Life are offering two lucky winners a family day pass to enjoy a fun filled day out.

Kent Life is a 28-acre working farm and visitor attraction situated in Maidstone, Kent. Open throughout the year, Kent Life tells the Kent farming story and provides a fun family day out discovering more than 200 farmyard animals, indoor and outdoor play areas, and Kentish gardens and orchards.  Visitors can step back in time to experience Kent’s farming heritage in the Vintage Village, which is made up of reconstructions of original rural Kent buildings that have been re-built brick by brick.

Visitors will be able to explore the wide range of summer activities now available at the farm, from animal encounters to paddle boating and exciting shows, families can enjoy everything that nature brings, while also learning about Kent’s intriguing farming heritage.
