At the lights-controlled junction on the west side of the Shoreham flyover on the A27 turn north into Coombes Road and follow the road for a few miles until you get to Coombes Farm. Alternatively, on going east out of Steyning turn south into Maudlin Lane and follow the road southwards. Either way you're on a quiet country road in the valley of the River Adur with pleasant downland scenery all around you.
Coombes Farm covers about 1,000 acres of downland with its thin chalky soil and flood plain with its rich alluvial soil. Farming is a mix of livestock and crops, and there are two man-made lakes(Passies Ponds) for anglers, stocked with bream, chubb, tench, roach, rudd, perch and carp.
Coombes Farm even has its own miniture church which dates back to the twelth century.
Each spring the farm is open for the lambing season welcoming both families and school parties. Children are allowed to cuddle and pet the baby lambs and there are the essential handwashing facilities for safe hygiene.
There are refreshments in one of the barns, and you can even go on a tour of the farm's 1,000 acres sitting on haybails on a farm trailer pulled by tractor!
There's plenty of car parking space in one of the farm's fields, and all you need for a successful visit is reasonable weather. Adults: £5-50 and Children: £4-50.
