  • Staff were miserable on arrival, all the rides were shut, animals looked fed up and hungry.. No one around feeding/looking after the animals. Made me feel really sorry for them as they don't seem to h...  read more »

  • I came to the farm on Sunday wich was a lovely day with my 4 year old son and my friend also came with her 4 year old daughter the kids loved it they loved playing on the slide and in the indoor play area we couldn't get them off when It was time for lunch.. their favourite part was when they got to pet the owl also staff were very friendly on arrival and when we left it i would definitely be coming back here during the 6 weeks holiday absolutely lovely day out..
  • Took our two year old son to the farm thinking great he can touch and interact with the animals. Sadly a huge disappointment. Hardly any animals and unable to touch any of them! It really is a glorified theme park. I'm not one for leaving reviews especially negative ones but I would hate anyone to have the same disappointment we had. We drove an hour to get there and only spent an hour there! There would have been more of an atmosphere in a graveyard!! Fortunately we moved on to Southend and had a lovely day on the beach and at the sea life centre. Save your money and go elsewhere!
  • had an amazing day with my little grandson today he absolutely loved the farm went on all the rides wich I was surprised to find they were all free to get on great value for money Also the staff were very friendly and helpful when I wanted to make a enquiry to have my grandsons birthday party here in August I would definitely recommend old mac Donalds farm for a great family day out..
  • Exremely expensive. Very sad looking environment not many animals those that were there looked sad not enough space for some. The main ride closed weekdays so there should be a reduction plus you spend more money once inside. Staff did not appear happy. Would not class it as a farm park. Very disappointing a waste of money
  • They mistreated animals!! Completely disgusting!!!! Will never bring my nephews back. The pigs an goats where laying in there own muck an the feeseys looked at least 5/6 days old!! The rabbits had green slime in there waterbottles but there was no water!!!!! The horse was sweating with no water an no shade!!!!! An there's loads more problems with this place!!! When we told the person in charge he laughed an said he doesn't care!!!!! Do not waste your money!!! An do not incurrage them to treat animals as badly as they do!!!!!!!
