Visiting Jakes Play World in Sandhurst is highly recommended, it’s a fantastic place, especially for toddlers and pre-schoolers to explore, with a soft play, mini farm and a number of other attractions to keep the little ones entertained, plus beautiful lakes to admire and walk around. Jakes Play World is a wonderful place to play, see lots of different types of animals and discover the world of role play.
What can I expect from a visit to Jakes Play World?
You book your tickets online (more details below) and then once parked in the free car park you queue by the entrance, where you will be welcomed and directed either into the Playbarn or mini farm depending on which tickets you have bought. When we visited we booked tickets for the mini farm which gave access to many attractions plus the animals so we didn’t venture into the Playbarn. When greeted we were given a leaflet about the covid procedures, plus two activity sheets to do during out visit – one was collecting stamps at each of the different animals and the other was to do a trail around the site. I thought these were both brilliant activities and a great challenge for the children.
Once into the mini farm there was loads to do including;
- Animals to visit including goats, sheep, alpacas, pigs, mini Shetland ponies, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, chickens, ducks and a giant tortoise.
- Reptile House
- Jakes Construction Site
- Jumping Pillows
- Boats (extra charge)
- Jakes ‘fun farm’ area – there is a fake cow you can milk, a small play area, sit on bikes, a sandpit, water play area and more.
- Jakes fire station
- A train
- Water play area where you can pan for ‘gold’.
- Music area
You are able to buy food to feed the animals, which are used to being approached and fed by people.
A little tip – when we arrived the construction site was extremely popular and near the entrance, so we headed to the jumping pillows first a little bit further away from the entrance which were empty.
The sessions are 9.30am – 1.30pm and 2pm – 5pm for the mini farm and all the activities mentioned above and sessions in the Playbarn are allocated in 2.5 hour slots during term time and 1.5 hour slots during the weekends and school holidays. When we visited we found there was plenty to keep us busy in a session and that was without visiting the indoor soft play(Playbarn), we could certainly go back again and discover things we didn’t see the first time round.

You will find plenty of hand washing stations and hand sanitiser dotted all around the site. Plus each attraction clearly states the ‘Covid-capacity’. I thought the covid measures in place were well thought out.
