  • Value for money day out. Family of two adults and two kids can get in for approx £50. Under two's get in free. Book online a week ahead and get a discount. Lots of covered picnic tables dotted around where you can get some shade on a hot day. Much more than just a farm. Loads of indoor play area if a quick rain shower appears. Many fairground rides to suit all ages. Reasonably priced refreshments for sale. Opportunity to feed some animals. The guide map includes 25% discount voucher for your next visit.
  • Excellent day out fantastic experience for my 3 year old and family member who was 7. Even all the adults had great fun. Spent the whole day there and didn't want to leave. Great value for money will definitely be going back again and would recommend this farm to friends and family.
  • My 2 year old loved it here. Lots of animals and lots to play on. Farm themed fun park rather than proper country farm. But a great day out for small children
  • My two children had a fantastic time at our first visit. The ages of my children are 11 and 6 and i felt you catered for both. We would love to come and visit again. The prices were fair and we got quality for money. I have and will continue to recommend Old Mac Donalds to family and friends.
  • Great day out and very much enjoyed by both myself and my son (aged 2/3). Would defiantly recommend a trip here. Several different animals, outdoor play activity and also indoor soft play. Fun day out 😊
