An excellent but tucked away farm and indoor kids play place.

it does exactly as their site says, allow kids to play and be educated. The food is decent enough coffee better than most. The farm tour is great for kids in single figures... read more

it does exactly as their site says, allow kids to play and be educated. The food is decent enough coffee better than most. The farm tour is great for kids in single figures, although I suspect many older kids and adults enjoy it too.

Today we had our son's birthday party at Big Sheep Little Cow. Firstly the staff couldn't have been more helpful when we booked the party several months ago (it's good to book in advance due to the popularity of the place). When we arrived for the party the staff had organised everything, all we had to bring was the cake... More

Took our Grandson today for a visit, unfortunately the farm tour was closed, although the Google search stated it was open today. The soft play area was O.K. However, it was in need of a really good clean! There were cobwebs everywhere and no hand sanitizer in the dispensers. We visited with our other grandchildren when we lived in the... More

Visited Big Sheep & Little Cow with my two nephews (5 and 18 months) during half term week. We weren't sure what to expect but what we encountered was a really great attraction for kids but one that can be enjoyed by adults too! There's a great indoor soft play area and café where you can wait before going on... More

This was our second visit, this time with the younger of our two grandsons (who is nearly three). It can be a little difficult to find; on our first visit our sat nav sent us to the middle of a housing estate! However, this time our updated sat nav told us when we were within a few hundred metres. If... More

This place is such good value for money because everything is included in the price which means you can spend the whole day there! The farm tour was great and we really enjoyed petting and feeding the animals and the soft play area was equally as enjoyable. My little girl spent ages playing and it was great that I could...

Travelling with an 18 month old child, this place saved teh day as we were struggling for activities in the area. The in house soft play is great fun & takes a long route through the building. We probably spent about half an hour in it waiting for teh farm tour to start. The farm tour was excellent. Our daughter... More

Took our 8 and 5 year olds out for a morning and took the tour of the farm. While we waited, the kids enjoyed the sit down pedal carts (need to be on the older side to reach the pedals and have enough strength to pedal them around the track) and playing in the indoor structure with slides. The tour,... More
