  • Loved seeing the animals and the park is good the only thing I would like to see Is the acceptance of debit card payment s as we could feed the children as we had no cash only cards 
  • Took son and grandson here for a walk and to play at the park. Loads of well worn paths beneath the trees running along a cool stream idyllic really. Then up past the horse paddocks to the park. Great...  read more »

  • great day out disabled friendly lots for kids to do and a nice walk for the adults too
  • Perfect for walking and other outdoor activities
  • Love the farm, the playground and the cafe. Lots of parking spaces too
  • Splendid time! Wanted to take my daughter to see the horses mainly but we had a nice all-round time at the park. There is ample parking space. The visitor centre is near there to provide information as well as toilet facilities and refreshments. Outside the visitor centre, there's picnic tables and benches. The kids play area is also located there. It's small but I'm not sure how many people visit the park when it isn't the holidays. It certainly wasn't crowded and we went around midday. Behind the visitor centre is a big open field. It's perfect for kids for outdoor play if they wanted to take balls, kites, water guns etc. The farm can be easily accessed by the car park furthest to the visitor centre. Not sure if admission is free as the signs strongly suggested £1 donation. There are lots of farm animals to see. The little ones will love the ducks, chickens, roosters and goats roaming around. It's spacious and decent size. Horses are on the opposite side (not at all far). We went on a few walking trails and got close to some of the horses. My daughter loved it. Walking was fine even with a stroller, but it was a hot day. On wet days, I can imagine it'd be different. We had fun. The park is well looked after. There were plenty of staff on duty. The people we encountered were friendly. We look forward to going again.
