    Had heard about Lockey Farm but never visited. Was aware there is now an entrance fee but was not off put by this. A small business can't run on donations alone! Especially when many people probably d...  more »

    Took our toddler for the afternoon. A disgruntled old lady who worked on the farm rudely complained as soon as we drove through an open gate that we shouldn't park there. So why leave the gate open. N...  more »

    Only £7, for two grandparents and a two year old. Excellent value. Bouncy pillows safer than a bouncy castle. Go carts are brilliant. Good food freshly cooked at reasonable price. Good baby change and...  more »

  • My only choice for free range eggs! A few different sizes are available too. A good fresh meat selection is available, all prepared on site. The shop is very well stocked with a great array of products, a lot of quite local produce, which is always great to see. There is a separate and very popular cafe on site, I have never actually used this though, so can't comment, other than saying that each time I have been to the shop, the cafe is often busy, a good sign indeed. There is a small selection of farm animals around and about for the children to look at and an outdoor play area too, which is often popular. The staff are always very friendly and approachable. My only personal slight criticism would be that items are a little on the expensive side! Yes, quality often comes at a price, but what price is acceptable is another thing.
  • It is currently being modified and for that reason it was free to walk round the animals and use the play area. Good for my 20 month old no that much to do for 8 yr old though. Maybe the improvements will change that though. Nice cafe though, tables inside and out. Never went to the butcher shop but would next time I visit.
  • Usually a nice selection of meat, vegetables and local products. The scotch eggs, although pricey are a wonderful treat. I have found the steaks to be a bit hit and miss. On some occasions I've had the most wonderfully aged meat, whilst on other occasions I've gone elsewhere as the meat was devoid of any marbling.
  • Staff very friendly. Cafe serves good inexpensive food. Farm animals are easily accessible even with a buggy.
  • Great place to keep the kids entertained but on a hot day like in was today 14/6/17 there was no were to find shad .
