  • We found this a bit difficult to find as signs not abundant and if they were, they were small BUT once found it was a really good day out. All the staff were friendly, smiley and informative and you c...  more »

  • Very good for any age. A lot of resting places and tables to eat at; parking excellent; staff friendly. Shop has a lot for ages up to 10yrs but not a lot to interest older than that. Restaurant was spacious and there was an area for picnics so you can cut down on cost if you bring your own. Prices a bit on the high side for food otherwise. Surprised that children 2yrs are charged for ... ought to raise this to 3yrs.
  • We had a fantastic day! Food in the restaurant was reasonably priced and good quality, although the tables and chairs we sticky and took a long time to get to place our orders even though only 3 people ahead of us. The lady in the gift shop in the afternoon did a great job and kept smiling despite being rushed off her feet alone. Despite the minor niggles, everybody worked hard to make our day the best they good and we're still happy to rate a 5 ! We'll be back - often!
  • Went with my 2 young niece and nephew. They loved it. Perfect for primary ages 5 to 10. No piglet races though despite them being advertised and food in the canteen was overpriced. Still worth a visit though on a nice day.
  • Another great day at this farm park. So much to see and do with lots of play areas and a few animals thrown into the mix. Impressive new indoor soft play. They really go to town on their events.
  • Loved it except the terrible organisation in regards to the pony rides. With each ride taking 2:30 per person why would you book 30 people into a 15 minute slot with 3 ponies? You can only fit about 18 rides into a slot so don't oversell the slots. I'd have happily waited and gone to a later, less busy slot rather than wait for 30 minutes. Overall great, reasonable prices and great play area.
