This is a lovely farm with a range of activities from being able to pet animals to indoor and outdoor play area for children of various ages. My little one didn't want to leave. My only criticism would be that the food on site wasn't great choice or what I expected so I would suggest you take a picnic but... More

Took the whole family here with little ones and they adored it here. Not only hands on with the animals but a bouncy castle and playground facilities. You can also eat here and catered for all ages

Great day for everyone. Indoor and outdoor activities. The animals were all close to touch and view and you could get in the goat enclosures and pet them. Washing facilities were very good too. Ate in the café and the food was fine. Plenty of places to sit etc.

Bought my sons as a half term treat. Totally disappointed. Paid £12.50 There are barely any animals to look at and although the play areas are large, I paid to come to the farm and see farm animals. The toilets are cold and full of cobwebs and dead spiders. The cafe is small and there is barely any choice especially... More

Been here a few times now but most recently for a child's 4th birthday party and my son loved it. Lots to do, big indoor soft play, big out door bouncy castles and playground. Throw in the petting zoo (kids can get in with the baby goats and stroke them), along with the animals in the fields and you've got... More

Plenty of car parking, flat and easy short walk on a footpath to the farm entrance. £6.50 two adults. Large indoor play area for older children and three bouncy castles outside...tables and chairs for indoor eating with... More

Took my grand daughter here for the day, aged 7years and 18 months. Both found plenty to do, loved getting up close to the animals in the petting area.Baby goats, calves, rabbitts etc were available, am sure this changes with the seasons? The pigs were not for petting but close enough to touch, lots of snorting going , on both... More

Great place to take the grandkids! So much to see and do. Price not too bad. But take a picnic, snacks are very limited!
