Dairyland Farm World is a visitor attraction along with working farm situated in the parish of St. Newlyn East near Newquay, Cornwall, England.HistoryDairyland started life in 1975 as a private collection of farm machinery. The original farming business was started by Mr. Frederick Davey MBE in 1924 although farming has been done on the site since the 1300s. The business expanded and Frank Davey OBE successfully took over the farm. In September 1950 the company F. Davey and Sons was established. Today it is known as Dairyland Farm World.The Farm TodayDiversification was needed to save the farm and it quickly expanded to a full family attraction. The park itself has various attractions including, The Bull Pen indoor play area, drop slides, mini tractors, petting zoo, adventure playgrounds, animal feeding, cow milking, woodland lakes and nature trails. The park also houses The Cornish Heritage Centre.See also The Big SheepPlan your visit to DairyLand Farm World and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Newquay vacation planner.

A good day out and better than some of the reviews suggest. Yes she things were extra like the pony rides - only £1 and the 20-25 min tractor ride £1 which represented good value. My only niggle was the restaurant really needs to offer more variety. All in all pretty good
A good day out in Cornwall. Has indoor soft play too, so if the weather turns you have somewhere to go.
This is one of the best attractions in Cornwall in its category. The park is huge and offers animals, rides, slides and activities. Kids absolutely love it here. There is enough to fill the entire day. Highly recommended.
My daughter had been on about going here all week so despite my better judgment off we went. Well, after paying an inflated entry price I countered this with the thought that I didn't have to pay any more. How wrong was I. You want to take a 30s pony ride? That's more money. The tractor trailer hayride. That's more still (more about this ride in a minute) feed the animals? Buy the food. So for your entry fee you get to play on some tired old toy diggers in a sandpit. Some playground equipment and you get to pet some animals. Oh and one blessing, you get access to the large indoor play area which is actually pretty good. You can watch some cows being milked in a rotating parlour which is interesting and the museum is quite good. Now for the much lauded (by them) tractor trailer hay ride. Jump onto a specially built trailer and a tractor takes you along a track beside one field to a pond. Stop, get off, feed the ducks, get back on and go round the pond and back where you started. And yes, they charge extra for this. They promote it as a farm tour! It's not even close. The sign at the entrance tells you it was once attraction of the year. Well those days are gone and what's left is milking a tired old cow. The owners either need to spend money on it or charge less for it. To finish on a high note. The staff where really good and balancing working in the park with working on the farm
My little ones love dairyland. We have an annual pass and go regularly. There are plenty of pay areas outside and the bullpen in door pay area has a brilliant under 5s area. You can feed the birds and farm animals. There are point rides and the tractor ride... These are charged in addition to admission. But at £1 per per rider is more than reasonable. For those with more energy there are lovely mature trails. For those paying per visit they do a free weekly return pass so can't fail and makes for another cheap day out.with picnic areas and cafes. Something for everyone. Special events regularly for occasions like Halloween like pumpkin carving and crafts at no extra cost too. Would say that younger children enjoy this day out more than older.
