  • Bought a meerkat experience via wowcher and went on a rather cold saturday. I have only ever seen meerkats on TV or in an enclosure not open to the public, so I assumed that you could maybe feed the m...  more »

  • Just got back from a meerkat experience at this small family farm. Had an amazing time getting up close and personal with their 6 meerkats. Loved Lola. So friendly and loved cuddling into my coat. Wou...  more »
  • The place was small, walked around in about 30 minutes, but the people who run/own it are lovely. It does appear that the place is undergoing a revamp. There is a selection of animals, we got to stroke a meerkat, the donkey is a character too he's ace ! On the whole it's a lovely place, the people seem nice it just isn't big enough.
  • Excellent for young kids. A variety of animals including those not generally seen at farm parks (tortoises/parrots/wallaby). Very educational and the kids loved it. Great value for a local day out. Animalsenerally well cared for overall but some cages are a little bare. Bathroom/hand washing facilities not great but useable - showing their age I think. Serves food and snacks but a little limited.
  • I have visited the farm a few times in the past with my grandson. This time it was a little disappointing as things had been changed around. Although it was obvious that things had been improved ie play bike area tarmacked and small fish pond I place. It was a shame the bouncy castle had been taken down and the butterfly enclosure was closed. I appreciate that funding is hard to get but sad that the farm looks as though it needs a face lift. But having said that my 5yr old grandson enjoyed it.
  • This is a small animal petting farm with animals such as pigs, meerkat's, various reptiles and birds. The food on the cafe is reasonably priced and good service. It is a little tired and dated in parts, however please remember it is run by a number of volunteers and via donations.
  • It was ok not much to do couple of hours at the most. No petting animal times. butterfly house was closed ! But is in the leaflet we were given. Best bit was the food in the cafe very nice
