  • Absolutely brilliant for kids, a really hands on farm for kids of all ages from holding and brushing guinea pigs to brushing pigs and calfs. There's also tractor rides (extra cost) but worth it as the owner gives you a really good tour and talk all in all the staff there are really helpful and the little farm cafe serves some yummy food. Highly recommended
  • Great day out for the family. Lots of interactive play with feeding and petting of the animals. The tractor ride is definitely worth a go but take caution if you have a sore back it gets a bit bumpy. There's pedal go-karts, indoor and outdoor play areas. Then if you still have enough energy there's some really lovely walks around. We love it here!
  • Lots of good activities for children of all ages. They can handle guinea pigs, feed calves and pigs, collect eggs and see giant tortoises and tiny chicks. There's also mini tractors to ride on, a maze, sand pit, outdoor play area and picnic tables inside and out. You can either bring your own food or buy some in the small café. The only downside really is the cost of entry which we thought was on the expensive side. Nevertheless it was a good holiday activity to keep the grandchildren occupied.
  • Great for little kids to interact with the animals. Plenty to do inside and out and with Bolton abbey over the road we love it!
  • Fantastic day out....bring your own food too to cut on costs but it is a fantastic education for all kids and a lot of space to let off steam....and as for the cakes.....fab
