As we get towards the end of the dog days of summer, youngsters have been getting to grips with all sorts of furry friends down at the farm. 

Hollow Trees Farm at Semer has been hosting a summer trail for families to enjoy.

From a kidbine to mini golf course to straw stacks there's been plenty for little hands to get to grips with. 

For those looking for something a little bit whizzier the farm also has special cresta run sledges, which lets kids enjoy the fun of sledging without the need for any snow.

The youngsters were joined on the trail by a host of furry friends from guinea pigs to cows and alpacas as they learnt about life on the farm.

There was a chance to get to know the creatures as face to face and even feed their new companions. 

The summer trail will remain open until the start of September.
