  • Myself and my family visit often and have never had a negative experience before. But today I am really disappointed, not because of the farm or facilities - these were excellent as usual, but due to ...  more »

  • Took my three toddlers here for the day. We had a great time. Small farmyard with friendly animals. Also saw ferrets, hamsters, birds etc. Opportunities to pet some animals. Children also enjoyed the playgrounds, sandpits, giant slides and soft play. We ate in the cafe and the food was nice. All staff very friendly. Hope to visit again soon. Great value for money.
  • Small and friendly place. Great for little ones with lots of play areas, sandpits and large slides. Activities with the animals occur throughout the day. Safe place for my little one to roam free and explore
  • A fun day out with the kids. The "meet the hedgehogs" talk was quite interesting. For instance did you know baby hedgehogs are born without spikes but one hour later up to 20 can be seen coming through. Amazing right. I digress. There weren't quite as many animals as I thought there would be but we had a nice day out and the kids loved it.
  • 5* attraction here. A little gem. Lots to see and do. Cafe and soft play area really nice
  • My husband and I took our 3 year old and seven month old today. The site is great! It was small enough that we didn't need to rush everywhere and there were scheduled activities every half hour, like feeding the pigs, brushing the donkeys and holding the small animals to name a few. There is an indoor play area with 2 big slides and small ride on diggers and tractors and the cafe also has a small indoor play area for under 6's. We arrived at 10am and left at 2pm. We all had a great time and would definitely go again!
