This was an excellent place to take both Children and adults alike - linked to a rather lovely little tea house and restaurant, it offered very good value Sunday Lunches etc. However, it now appears to have passed on after being sold to new owners - shame, as it offered something for families of all ages.

Having a young kids birthday party planned for the park but the weather changed we decide to meet a lathe barn it was a pleasant surprise the indoor play area is good for little one (3 years old) and even though the weather wasn’t great the staff were more than happen to put the train and other rides on for us. Little kids would like this but older ones will get bored easily. There is a tea room right next door but was told that is closing very soon which is a shame as a cup of coffee goes down well when you walk around in the cold

We took 9 children aged 18 months - 3 years and bought our tickets through the Groupon deal. The guy on the entrance desk was super friendly and very informative. The children loved getting in with the rabbits and guinea pigs, riding on the train and the fair ground rides, climbing, sliding and digging in the sand pit. Driving the tractors and go kart too! There is an indoor soft ply area too but it was such a lovely day we didn’t venture inside.

We went today, £2 per adult, £6 per child over 2 so it didn’t cost us much to get in. There just isn’t a lot to do there - the miniature train was out of action - our main reason of visiting - however this wasn’t known to us until we had paid and were inside, seeing the sign. There are rabbits, guinea pigs, pot bellied pigs, goats, chickens and sheep. My 5 year old loved the combine harvester play park. There are two rides to go on but we had to hunt down the worker to operate them and ask to go on them, he then let the kids on without speaking to anyone, no safety instructions and not even checking their seatbelt was on. The play barn is good but really for 4 and under I would say, my son was bored of it in less than 5 minutes (although had there been other kids more his age he probably would’ve made friends and had more fun!) there’s go karts and toy tractors to ride on. Gift shop is cheap and the craft shop was good. The gift shop does take away hot drinks for £1 which was great. We had lunch in the tea room afterwards which was brilliant. We had done everything at the farm within an hour

Took our 2 year old to lathe barn for the first time, wasn’t sure what to expect after hearing it had changed hands but was very pleasantly surprised. Easy to find on the drive over, with plenty of parking. The entry prices are very reasonable and the man in the shop was very cheery on entry. Our son enjoyed seeing all the little animals - although there aren’t many of them there were enough for him to enjoy. The play area was good with big and little go karts and the fair ground rides, which although they were old they were free to get on which is great for the kids. My son also particularly enjoyed the sandpits and the fact there were actually buckets and spades! The inside play area was also very good and quiet (the whole place was fairly quiet while we were there). We ate in the tea room which was busy but well managed, friendly staff and fairly reasonably priced for good food. Would recommend to all with younger children. Not sure my 10yr old would have been so impressed but for younger ones definitely.
