  • Wandered around the farm, saw miniature ponies, lots of different pigs, cows with big horns, chicks and rabbits. Great to take kids to. As I didn't have kids with me, we didn't spend a lot of time her...  more »

  • First visit to Wimpole Home Farm and it's safe to say it won't be the last. A great opportunity to get up close to animals on a working farm. Knowledgeable staff and the animals are kept beautifully.

  • Absolutely love this place. Glorious gardens (check the hidden garden!), good and not expensive restaurant, shops and plenty to do with kids. The farm hosts several animals, for the pleasure of our daughter, to help preserving traditional breeds. There's also a nice playground. The actual mansion looks lovely from the outside, but we still haven't visited the interior. If you can make it during the lambing season, that's a target remarkable experience.
  • Great day out. Seems to be plenty going on. If you are a National Trust member definitely worth a stop. Quite a bit of space for the kids to play too. The farm Cafe was popular. Prices around the same a pub lunch. I think £27.50 family ticket (Summer 2016) is a bit high to look round a farm and gardens. It's £45 for the whole estate.
  • Love Wimpole Hall. Have been many times to meet friends. Last time was the 1940s weekend which was really special.
  • Good day out for kids and adults. Off.m11. Vast grounds. Allow a whole day
  • We visited with friends (and their children) on new years day this year. Though the drive way was full with queuing cars when we arrived, the queue moved fairly quickly and we had a really lovely afternoon at Wimpole Farm. There was more than enough for the children to look at and explore and everything was really well set up and maintained. A few great cafes too.
