  • Kids loved it, even in torrential rain! Cafe good quality. Make sure you donate to keep it going!
  • There are two good reasons to visit: The farm itself, and the restaurant. The farm has a small collection of normal farm animals and is aimed at giving urban children the chance to interact with the creatures their rural cousins take for granted. The cafe / restaurant is one of the best in the area and well worth a visit in its own right.
  • One of my favourite place in london. Beautiful animals, nice staff and cafe serving delicious food on site.
  • LOVEly place with nice staff. The vibe is super cool.
  • good, wholesome rustic food... very affordable... friendly staff... perfect for a Sunday lunch...

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
