  • Not really an animal park when there are only cows, sheep and a few farm animals. Very over priced. Lovely views and nice to walk for fresh air. Food very expensive. 
  • My daughter held her wedding here, just before Christmas, what an amazing day. We were greeted at the door by Jason, who showed us to our room, then gave us the tour and a run through of how the day w...  more »
  • In this day and age to have a large parrot trapped in a small cage (not large enough for the parrot to even spread its wings) stuck in the corner of the restaurant/cafe is pretty disgusting. The cage ...  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
