About Bardykes Farm

“To create a nurturing, sustainable welcoming environment where children are valued, respected and are able to thrive by exploring nature at their own pace of learning” 


Bardykes Farm Nursery School opened in 1991 immediately setting a new gold standard in putting the great outdoors and Mother Nature at the heart of everything we do. 

Taking its setting in the buildings and grounds of a previous working farm helps to inspire children's imaginations. 

Bardykes demonstrates the power of its unique outdoor world by creating wonder, excitement and real engagement for children as they are able to explore a magical world of secret gardens, thriving orchards, rushing rivers - and the amazing array of curious creatures living in them; Birds, Bees, Butterflies, Fish, Frogs, Ducks, Horses, Calves, Lambs, Dogs, Cats and, yes, even Guinea Pigs.

A truly holistic, hands on approach to children's physical and mental well being.
