A SUSSEX visitor attraction has gone green and launched an exciting new attraction for the half-term holiday this week.

Sharnfold Farm – situated at Stone Cross between Eastbourne and Hailsham — now has a Rewilded Garden.

Rewilding is essentially taking an area of land and giving it back to nature to so it can become a better habitat for native bugs, plants, flowers and wildlife.

It’s also great for combating climate change, says Donna Bull from Sharnfold Farm.

She said: “We have taken a green field and created a Rewilded area where children can get up close to plants and flowers while enjoying some rustic play equipment.

“We have also installed a giant tepee, outdoor play kitchen, slalom zigzag posts and a little artists’ quarter.

“This will be an ongoing project that will changes as the four seasons do.

“We have been busy on the farm collecting items to reuse and recycle, giving discarded items a new home, and creating what we hope will be a fun environment for children to learn and stop a while to play.

“The area has been specially designed to allow parents to take a moment for coffee and cake while the children play in natural surroundings.

“We hope that everyone will find the garden a wonderful addition to the existing play area.”

The play area is one of the main attractions of the farm, where you can also take a stroll and see the lambs, llamas, cows, goats, pigs and ducks.

You can then follow the trail and take part in activities along the way.

It is open daily:

· £4.95 for anyone over the age of three
