I felt compelled to write my first review on trip advisor......this place is excellent for the little ones to learn, play and explore. Lots of different activities, animals Etc we went on a bumpy tractor ride which the kids loved, it only cost a pound each and that was the only thing we paid extra for. We fed the goats... More

With a two year old and a four month old in tow we went based on reviews as it was a little out of our way. Im glad we did. Our two year old didn't stop; enjoyed the bouncy castle, the goat feeding, soft play, sand play and forest walk. There's so much else to do as well, I'd definitely... More

We went on a cold wet day in January, and still have a great couple of hours fun. We hope to return on a warm dry day, as I think you would get a full day's fun.

You are so right, a sunny day will also give you a whole new view of the things we offer, i.e. sand water play but not due to rain! More

Whilst on a weekend break to Sandford park holiday site (park dean) we decided to travel the 5 minutes up the road to Farmer Palmers. What a great decision! The weather was beautiful for February and really warm! So the farm was very busy but other than the lamb feeding we never sensed how busy it was. My son (2.5)... More

I am so excited that you all had such a great day with us, and thank you for spreading the word here. You have given awesome feedback and, although we can not overcome all of our challenges re size, we can definately consider some of the other points. Rest assured the Tractor Ride is designed to be bumpy and safe! More

Visited whilst on holiday in the area for half term. With everyone else having half term the previous week, lots of things were closed and so we found ourselves here after a bit of searching online. We visit a lot of farms and farm parks at home and we're spoiled with some excellent ones in Sussex so it's always hard... More

Visited with my 3 and 6 year old girls on a cloudy day in mid February. The site is compact with the animal shows conveniently in the same place and indoor bouncy castle, soft play, and hay bale slides provided plenty to do for 4 hours. The place was well organised with friendly staff on reception and everything run on... More
