We went to this farm twice in a the space of two weeks. We took our young niece and nephew who both enjoyed feeding the animals. My elderly father also enjoyed the farm and marvelled at the green surroundings. The circuit ensures that it remains safe and there is always time for a tea/ coffee and food if needed. Though...

We visited a couple of weeks ago when the weather was warmer. In wet weather you will need wellies. We went for a couple of hours as it wasn't worth driving 40 minutes to it and leave in a rush.

Took my nephews who are under the age of 4. Both enjoyed themselves. They were disappointed that they couldn't play on the park as it's not really suited to their age group. As adults it was expensive for what is there. 2 adults and 2 children was £6 in total but will always go back.

My sister and I took our nephew here and we really enjoyed it! Great environment for him to wander around and engage with farmyard animals! Amazing that it is donation based entry fee - give generously, they do an amazing job here!
