  • Plenty to keep the children occupied for a day here, you can go in some of the petting areas with the animals, massive rabbits to stroke, big play area inside and out. They also do children's parties....  more »
  • There are a few local petting farms, but this gets top marks for me for a few reason: 1. You can buy a season pass for only £45. Which lasts from March - October which is great value 2. The children c...  more »
  • We visited today with our four year old. It was easy to find and we parked in the overflow car park. The main one was full but I think the overflow one is better size wise. It is a very short walk to ...  more »

  • This place is amazing. Whilst it has a limited number of animals to interact with, it's clear that the public are welcome to be close. This was embodied today by the way all animals demonstrated comfort in dealing with humans. Some were a little distant, but clearly not uncomfortable, whilst others were positively friendly. Other facilities are worth a family day out by themselves. My kids can't wait to go back, despite the hour drive each way. Value for money is outstanding, including that the food and drink wasn't over-priced. Highly recommended.
  • Lovely little place. Farm itself is not massive but the play areas are spot on great to bring the family for a few hours but don't be expecting a full day out here. Staff are incredibly pleasant definitely worth a visit
  • Friendly, welcoming staff. Clean and tidy indoor seating as well as outdoor picnic area. Lots of well cared for animals to look at and pet. Bouncy castles for the kiddies, and coffee for the parents (reasonable prices) it really is a great place to spend the afternoon!
  • Great place. Indoor and outdoor play. Nice little cafe but there is never a problem with eating your own pack up there. Kids love the animals.
  • Great petting farm where you can get into some of the animals enclosures for a close encounter. Also have a large soft play area, outdoor play area with ride on tractors and sand area with diggers and bouncy castles! We love it there :-D
