Took our 2 grandsons for the day. Indoor play centre very good. Outdoor bouncy castle - two huge ones - one for young children and another for 5-13 year olds. Lots of different animals to see and some you can touch/stroke - rabbits, lambs, goats, cows, donkeys, horses and several species of birds too. Huge outdoor space to wander round... More

We took our grandchildren aged 6 and 8 here. It proved a very enjoyable day. As well as the farm animals and pets there are indoor and outdoor play areas separated into 2 age groups.

This farm is so good for the whole family. It has animals (of course) but you can look at them and some of them you can get in with, rabbits, goats. Then there are lots of outside play areas and bouncy castles. There is also an indoor soft play area for if the weather isn't as good outside. You are... More

We took our 3 granddaughters at their request, as we visit often. Lots of animals and birds in well kept housing. The girls loved the rabbits, guinea pigs chinchillas, chipmunks, baby goats and lambs. There were chickens and chicks, an assortment of birds from finches to parrots, and outside in the fields were cows, sheep, pigs, donkeys, alpacas and more..... More

I was concerned as soon as we arrived at this place. The carpark was fine, but you have to walk along a very narrow path back onto the road to enter the actual farm , I thought this extremely poor with lots of children visiting. We had to walk on the road to get past two way, pushchairs, young children,... More

This is a great place for half a day out with younger children. Parking is free and entry at £6.50 per adult is reasonable. This is a working farm so what you see is the real deal - kids can get up close and pet some of the animals such as rabbits, goats and guinea pigs. The rest of the... More

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
