My work ( giving support to foster carers) means I do a lot of research into suitable attractions for the children I take out. This means sticking to a fairly tight budget. On calling Longdown for some clarification I ended up speaking to Farmer Brian,...More

Another great visit to this delightful place, they have a daily activity programme with lots to do. Holding a baby chicken is something quite special if you have never done it. A great selection of animals to see and for an excellent price.

Came today as my nephew loves coming to a farm but was a shock. The farm was dirty, no staff around and dead animals in cages for the children to see. Was no a good experience. I would not recommend at all 😪More
