  • We live close by so made sense to take out an annual subscription so we can visit as many times as we like. The children love the trampolines, the various animals and the large field with all the clim...  read more »
  • Its a nice day out with a good variety of farm animals. The play space is also good. My only concern is the space for some of the animals to graze does not seem fair. 
  • Have driven by Old Down a few times, and eventually went in for the afternoon to see what it was all about. What a great surprise. You have to buy your park tickets in the shop and go through into a l...  read more »
  • The park itself is lovely and there is a fair bit for children but there is nowhere to sit and eat a picnic in cold weather, just a few picnic benches with no cover from rain etc. Fine if you only go there in the summer but not very good to get the most of your membership. They do have a cafe/Bistro but it's quite expensive for what it is. Staff are lovely but the new management they've got in over the last 2 years to turn it into a posh wedding venue doesn't really run with with family farm feel it had a few yeas ago which is a shame. After being a meber for 3 years we have just joined Puxton Park which is slightly cheaper, has move covered play areas and feels less corporate. Court Farm also looked really good.
  • Brilliant for children, especially the younger ones. We took our 2 year old here today and it was excellent. A petting area allowed her to get close to lambs, rabbits, pigs, and chickens. Then a picnic and Punch & Judy show on the lawn, before bouncy castles, trampolines, goats, llamas, donkeys, ponies, swings, slides, and ice cream. Absolutely perfect.
  • This place is brilliant for kids. So much to do for younger and older children. The play equipment is fantastic and there are lots of animals. You can take a picnic or eat in the cafĂ© which does lovely food. Love it here.
  • We had a great day out here with kids from 2 to 10 and we all had fun! I'd definitely recommend a visit, we stayed in the area for a week and this was our best day out!
  • very good day out
