I'm a travelling mother of one, from the UK but now living in Indonesia. Looking forward to sharing day out ideas with you.

We went for a family day out, but what left us feeing sad?
As you drive north from Bandung up to Lembang you'll find the Lembang Farmhouse (AKA Farmhouse Susu Lembang) on your right. There's plenty of parking spaces and it's quite easily seen from the main road.
First thing to mention, as with a lot of these places, the ticket can be exchanged for a milk or water. The place for this is obvious and just near the main entrance. The Farmhouse is a simple set up like you'll find in many attractions in this area. It's a series of walkways around garden areas with different themes.
One part is supposed to be a hobbit village with secret garden area (extra charge to enter) and another has a Dutch feel with windmills and the building styles. Really, I feel it's just lots of places to pose for social media pictures but my toddler seemed to enjoy the freedom of walking around and the gardens. It also has some beautiful view points and the opportunity to hire traditional Dutch costumes and take pictures. You'll also find plenty of eating options from quiet classy expensive restaurants to local warung style. Again, not great if you don't eat meat or have any dietary requirements. Up to this point we had slowly wandered around for about an hour. This first part of the day I really enjoyed as it's a mixture of natural views, water features and picture opportunities. The second part of the day I wasn't so keen on.
Towards the end of the signposted walking route there is a small petting farm. You can pay for food to feed the goats, sheep and rabbits. I'm not normally a fan of this but let it go as it seemed ok and the animals did have a little bit of room to move around in. However, as the walk continued there was a farm area and this bit saddened me. For me the area in which the calves and other sheep were kept was a little too small and uncared for.
