  • The animals are so friendly here that it's great to take young children to feed them. The staff are very informative and for a minimal suggested entrance fee it's worth a visit. Great in the summer to take a picnic and watch the kids play or pop into the on site cafe
  • Nice little Farm. It is small but they have quite a few animals living there. When you enter the gate is DIY and there is a donation box you can donate whatever you feel like but it also suggest the amount for adults and kids. However we tend to give more as this place is run privately and they do need our support. You can also buy the food to feed those sheeps & lambs, it is also self help. They have a cafe there but I didn’t have a chance to try. We noticed in one of the room there are some photos of animals which people currently supporting, is like adopting I guess. And we are considering to join the family annual pass so we can bring the little one there more often. When my friends come to visit me from other part of England or even other part of the world, this is a must place to bring them here.
  • Entry with honesty donation, and suggested donation very reasonable. Friendly animals to pet and feed if you purchase food from the shop. They have special visits such as birds of prey exhibits and well worth a visit for an hour or two. Great little outdoor play area too. It's not a day out kind of place but perfect for kids to let off some steam and entertain for a while.
  • Good for kids to see and learn about the animals. Nice grounds and well maintained. The animals are well looked after and there are audio guides everywhere. It's very small but it's expected of a city farm but it was worth visiting.
  • Very cute little farm, well worth the small entry fee! Cafe was good too.
