  • We absolutely love this place, and so do the children. We make sure to visit the farm every summer, and the children never seem to get bored of it. The staff are quite delightful, as are the array of farm animals on the farm. My children particularly enjoy the winding paths, the park beside the cafe and the park in the wooded area. It's a wonderful day out for the whole family, and I hope we continue to visit for many more years.
  • Fantastic place to spend the day. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit with my family
  • Brilliant. We loved our visit and will return.
  • A great day out with the family in the sun, with the farm, playgrounds, animals, gardens and house.
  • Loved all of it especially seeing the pigs being fed
