We are a 28 acre Heritage Farm Park and aim to be a memorable and fun day out for all the family. Step back in time and visit our Vintage Village, take in the smells and colours in the Kentish Gardens, get your boots muddy and explore our Farmyard & Nature then take a break and set the kids free in our Family Play! We have daily activities and regular seasonal events throughout the year.

Its a good family day out with lots ot keep the children occupied. The animal area is well set up and there are opportunities to bottle feed the lambs and baby goats as well as cuddle corner where you can hold and stroke some of the small animals. The children loved the adventure playground and there is an indoor play... More

Many thanks for your review. Sorry to hear your niggles - we do normally get rave reviews about our bubble show, we will be investigating as to why it fell short over the Easter weekend. We do charge for face painting (this is operated by an external supplier) - apologies if this wasn't made clear, we will look to improve... More

Absolutely loved every minute of it! The animals are well looked after, staff are friendly! Fed the animals, only sad thing is we never got to go into the cuddly corner because the queue was out the door :( but 100% will return and hopefully get to cuddle the animals next time! Apart from that so worth the trip!!

Its more a farm than a look at Kent life, however its a thoroughly enjoyable way to spend a few hours messing about with the animals and have a look at some of the old traditional buildings they have relocated into the park. We paid just short of £30 for 2 adults and 2 children and the entrance is in... More

Many thanks for your very comprehensive review - glad you enjoyed your visit. The merry go rounds you refer to were just here for the Easter weekend, they're not here all the time. We do try and offer a packed schedule of entertainment, so there should be plenty to do whenever you visit. Hope to see you again. More

My daughter went to a friends birthday party here recently. The party included teddy bear stuffing, lots of fresh air and a tractor ride, a brilliant day. The party co-ordinator was really good with the children and kept them busy the whole time, great team of people.

Good for young kids. Great Park area for the kids to play both indoors and outdoors. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Not bad prices for a cup of coffee and cake. Not a bad day out

My wife and I paid Kent life a visit 18/4/17 for our daughters 2nd birthday and we all thoroughly enjoyed the day out with the train ride, owls, pottery painting, museum and animals. The only downside was when we stopped for something to eat. It was very expensive and at these prices I would expect the food to be nice,... More

Many thanks for your largely positive review. I can only apologise for the issue with the food you experienced in the tea room, this is certainly not normal. I will ensure your comments are passed on to our Catering Manager. Hope to welcome you back again soon. More
