  • I have been for a couple of times now for lunch as it is local. Whilst the place is over run with children which is not a problem, and the staff worked very hard cleaning the awful mess that was left ...  more »
  • Great way to entertain the children on a weekend or during the holidays. Lots of farm type animals, well spread out and plenty of space for picnics etc as well as great ways to tire out the kids.  more »
  • We were nvited to a friends wedding. Very friendly staff, the reception was run like clockwork. The staff seemed to be informing the bride and groom of all the timings. The food presentation was nice....  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
