lucky enough to visit the farm as they celebrated harvest - great afternoon with visitors included in whole experience as we processed round the farm. Impressed that they still managed some demonstrations too. Our second visit (the first excellent also)

A quiet day when we visited, but still a lot to see. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable people. Enjoyed watching the reactions of some toddlers with the chicks.

Easy to walk around in an hour but recommend joining the Bailiff's tour of the farmyard where he talks about the history and practicalities of running the farm. We could have spent all day there; you are given a map and an itinerary for the...More

Interesting and well presented working Victorian farm. Good exhibits and plenty of information. Friendly staff and lots going on. Free repeat admission within the same year, which is good if you want to make a repeat visit. The whole family enjoyed the visit.
