The. Goat Centre saved my sanity so many times when my kids were small. It's still a favourite: nothing nicer than watching goats nibble through your bag of greens-and sometimes the bag too. Marvellou... read more »
Do not believe any of the negative reviews you see here. This farm has a great deal of happy, friendly animals in clean and spacious enclosures. There are rabbits, including giant Canadian ones, pigs,... read more »

Very disappointed. Not many animals and run down. Also was not informed that the cafe shut earlier then farm so couldn't get a cuppa to drink while child played. and broken play equipment :(

Fantastic day out for family's. I went in a group of family members that included a 5 month old, a 6 month old, a 9 year old and 6 adults between the age of 26 and 51. Everyone enjoyed it. It is great for those budgeting too as it was only £4.50 entry for adults. They have a café on site which serves tasty and plentiful food. There is also the chance to adopt one of the animals at the farm for a year. I have adopted Maxine the llama, my 6 month old son could not stop laughing at her! He loved her. I cannot wait to go back.
great morning or afternoon trip wouldn't say a whole day, kids food expensive. they can't make coffee and needs updating but on a whole not bad for the money.
My partner and I went to the goat centre two weekends ago, during the Easter school holidays. I had been there several years ago with my daughter when she was a toddler and remembered it as a fun place to go. We had a look around the gallery first, this is beautiful, pictures and ornaments to name but a few. Then The Goats Centre, I had forgotten you have to pay before entering the café, which took me by surprise, what if you just want a snack and am not there for the goat centre? Can you use the café without having to pay the entrance fee for the goat centre? If not then surly you are losing out on business? We paid and entered the café, we decided to have something to eat first as it was lunchtime. There were no staff behind the counter in the café, we loitered by the till, not too sure what we supposed to do. Eventually the member of staff who took our entrance money came over to take out order. We decided to eat outside, the first thing I noticed is that all the outbuildings could do with a lick of paint. I ordered a coffee and was impressed with the quality. We had to wait for 40 minutes for a toasted sandwich and a breakfast sandwich. Mine came with a salad garnish and crisps, the presentation was great, however we had no condiments of the table, no napkins and no cutlery. Both meals were delicious.I felt it was a shame that the café seems to promote cakes, cookies and muffins ect more so then the quality products that they can prepare. Also the centre is more of an attraction for children, why not provide little picnic boxes for children. These would not cost much to prepare and Im sure would be very popular with the children and if health then also with the parents! I was disappointed to find that once we decided to walk around the centre many of the animals did not have information on their breed or even their names. This I am sure would be of interest to the children, it certainly would have been for me. We entered the barn to find that some of the signs on the pens didn't match the animals in them. It also appeared that one of the animals had urinated on the concrete outside of the pen, were the general public could walk, rather then use a bucket and mop to clean this up, there was a sign pointing to this and warning you to avoid! The animals are obviously well cared for and lets face it that's the priority, however I felt depressed when I left as the goat centre is clearly not running at its full potential. The staff came across as if they did not really want to be there. It was also difficult to work out just who the staff were. Some were in green t shirts, no name badges, however some were just in casual clothes easily mistaken for the public. I loved the animals, but the buildings and the set up depressed me. As I said a lick of paint could go a long way, also info/write up on the animals in all the pens would make the experience a lot more enjoyable, just knowing their names would make it more fun for the children.
