  • We all loved the farm ( kids 1and 5) We bottle fed the baby goats , went on a tractor ride, held the guinea pigs/ rabbits , played in the playground Great place regardless of the weather  more »
  • This place is tiny and rundown! The kids tractors are mostly broken and trying to pedal them on the poor quality surface is difficult. Small play area with very little to amuse a child for more than a...  more »
  • Smaller than expected and seemed to be quite a rushed morning with handling, feeding and tractor rides. The staff have been helpful and friendly towards the kids. We would come again.  more »
  • Lovely day out for toddlers. Lots to play with, inside and out. Animal demonstrations take place when you can help feed the baby animals and collect chicken eggs. Treasure hunts take place in the climbing hay bales. There's also a lovely cafe which uses produce from the farm, where you can also buy produce to take home.
  • A great place to feed the animals and for the kids to run wild. We always enjoy a family day out here. The staff are excellent and the animals are adorable. There aren't too many places like this around so long may it thrive and we look forward to visiting again soon.
  • Enjoyed our visit but it's expensive for what it is. I'm comparing this to Open Mead Farm which has a lot more for your money. If this was a little cheaper, I'd rate higher.
  • The staff on arrival were extremely friendly and welcoming and explained what was available and at what time. The tea room was lovely and the home made produce on sale and good quality but inexpensive trinkets for small children available in the shop I thought were excellent. There was a lady on hand to allow my 3 year old to handle the chicks and explain a little about them, we then went and fed the pigs and sheep and bottle feed the goats. We had a tour of the chicken coops, collected the eggs, washed and then boxed them which was just fantastic for the children. We then had egg sandwiches to complete the story. We climbed on the hay bales, rode on the tractor toys and generally had a super time. We were there around 3 hours and didn't particularly linger and as it was very quiet being a normal 'work day' I'm sure there would be more to do with other children around. We didn't use the play area or sandpit as it was a bit chilly in January but being out of season there was still plenty to do. Perfect as a birthday treat for a young child. Absolutely loved it.
  • Fabulous open farm. Our young daughter loves it, especially animal feeding time and climbing in the hay barn. A really lovely day out for the little ones and one of the few places where you can get in amongst the animals rather than just looking in through the fence, brilliant!
