    We have visited the ice cream farm a few times and it never fails to be a good day out. Always go with my little one (2 years old) and my nephews (6 years old) and they both love it. They love the san...  more »

  • Allergy aware, well maintained, well staffed, prices are all reasonable, laid back fun filled family day out in all weathers. We will definitely be back. We bought a £25 pass between our three children and it was plenty for a day out with the farm area, ice creams and park. Our daughter loved the gem stones, all loved the diggers and sand and water play, snowy ice cream tree was amazing and crazy golf is just long enough and so imaginatively done. Plenty of toilets and hand washing available, disabled toilet separate to baby changing which made it easier for us with three children with varying needs. Ice creams and sorbets delicious, with generous servings and varied toppings and cones, including gluten free. Drinks werent over priced either and plenty of pocket money options in the shop too.
  • Fantastic place for kids even when it's rainy...my daughter (age 5) loved the sand and water indoor activity where anything goes, there is a cost for this but so worth it! The free playground which is pure heaven for kids with mini trampolines in the floor, climbing frames and a telly tubby style house. Ice cream fab but could do with improving the quality of the cafe food, it was a bit too much like a canteen for me. Take swim stuff or a change of clothes as they do get very wet 😁
  • Nice place, lots for the little 'uns to do. But on a sunny day, it can get pretty darn packed! The discount wrist band is probably the most worthwhile way to partake in the paid-for activities, but makes more sense if you'll be returning on numerous occasions, rather than a one-off visit. Other handy tip: to avoid queues for the scoop shop, there is a selection of 'to-go' tubs, straight out off the freezers, at very good prices almost next door & which doesn't appear to get anything like the volume of people waiting! ;)
  • great place to get ice cream but don't go during the school holidays, and if it's sunny then swerve altogether as it's hard to move some times. Normally there's huge queues for the cones, but buying the tubs yourself to take home the queues are much better. I've heard the various kids activities can cost quite a bit and you have to pay for each thing separately. quite dear if you have kids.
  • Love this place. It's ideal for all ages, large groups, small families... anyone. There's free entry to the play area and animal area. It's really nicely set out, so even if you go on a busy day it doesn't feel overcrowded or have long queues. The soft play area is clean and again has a nice layout so it's great for babies, toddlers and kids. The cafe has a nice selection of food and the prices are fair, they ask that you don't bring a picnic as there's no entrance fee, which I'm always happy to do. There's a sand and water play area, the suggestion is to take a spare set of clothes for your kids and I would agree. It's loads of fun but doesn't get incredibly messy! Last time we did a JCB ride, I didn't think it was very long but it was a busy day so maybe this would be better on a quieter day. The animal section keeps expanding so we had a great time here too. The outdoor play area is really nicely maintained and really entertaining for the kids. And how can I not mention the ice cream!? They have an irresistible selection to eat in or takeaway. I do really like going here. I'm always happy with the staff, the atmosphere and the ice cream!
