  • great little farm, not as big as whitehouse or Adventure valley but not as expensive, nice selection of farm and zoo animals, think cows, sheep,pigs meerkats, reindeer and more. and some lovely play areas, but the highlight was the staff supervised activities, on every 1/2 hr throughout the day, the young girl in the barn was great very attentive with the children, and the lad on the tractor was a laugh, both fun and educational.
  • Great place for a fun day out with children, best suited for kids under 10years old
  • Great place to check out if you haven't been, loads to do
