Enjoy a fantastic FREE day out on a real working farm. We have free parking and our paths are free to walk 7 days a week. You can see our animals all year round, and explore our woodlands (you may even find a play area hidden inside them). We have a cafe, shop and pub on site so you can even taste the produce that comes from our land.

Second time out to Church Farm. Had a lovely Sunday morning stroll seeing all the animals, cows, pigs, sheep and chickens. Great for families and nice they have facilities such as shops, a cafe and toilets. Will certainly come back again.

we visited this in high hopes with our 2 year old grandson. What a shock to find outdated, tired tractors, toy cars and play area. The whole place disappointed with poor signage, a lack of welcome and a few animals looking bored.

Whilst this place advertises itself as having a variety of attractions on site you can't get away from the fact it is clearly just a farm with very few modifications to make it into a visitor attraction. Portacabins and caravans stuck under a barn and...More

Hi Nicole, Yes dogs are welcome! Please keep them on a lead and there is a waste bin in the village out the front of the farm.

The entrance to the farm is right opposite the pub the Jolly Waggoner, there are greens just in front of it and what looks like a lane that will take you around to the yard/parking area and where the shop and cafe are.
