    A great family day out
    We had a great day out, two adults and a five year old. Lots to see and do, we especially loved the water balloons and the barrel ride. Good value for money and well worth a visit.
    Thank you for a fabulous review! It's great to hear you found the farm to be good value for money. We hope to see you again in the near future.

    Great day out
    We went last week for the day. So many animals to see, mums with young ones…. Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Cows, Alpacas to name a few!! There’s Chicks, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Lambs to handle -and feed. Tractor & trailer rides, indoor play place, Quad bike rides, Water Wars, Outdoor play areas etc. Staff are friendly, interactive with kids and parents. There’s a cafe and shop for treats and souvenirs. Would definitely go again and recommend to others!
    Thank you for leaving us such a lovely review. We are so pleased to hear you had a fantastic day at Hall Hill Farm. We are very much about our animals, so it is a great place to visit for animal lovers of all ages. Thank you for recommending us.

    Great day out
    I took my 12 year old here for a day out whilst on holiday and she loved it. She is animal mad so particularly loved the rabbit and guinea pig barn, here you could hold and cuddle then as often as you liked. We bought 2 bags of animal feed 75p each and feed the goats, sheep, donkeys & llamas. We went along for lamb feeding too. We enjoyed the free tractor ride round the farm and loved seeing the Highland cows from here. There are bouncy pillows, rock climbing wall, slides/play park, indoor playbarn to name a few things there. Plenty to enjoy. The food was reasonably priced and staff all very friendly. Would recommend visiting if in the area
    Many thanks for your lovely comments, we do have lots of activities to keep children entertained and the rabbit and guinea pig barn is always a favourite with many. Thank you for visiting the farm.

    Don't miss it!
    Amazing value for money! Such a lovely day out with my grandchildren. Loads of activities, took all day to see everything, animals look healthy and well looked after. The farm is clean and well organised, with hand washing stations and sanitizer everywhere. Toilet facilities were the same. Lovely cafe with indoor and outdoor area. The staff were friendly and helpful. Can't wait to return!
    Thank you for leaving us such a wonderful review! We are pleased to hear you had a great day out at the farm. You might be interested in upgrading to an annual pass if you definitely going to be visiting a lot more. Hope to see you soon!

    Excellent day
    I have wanted to visit Hall Hill for many years and finally got around to it. I thoroughly enjoyed it, all the animals were in great condition and look really healthy and very friendly. We bought a bag of food and it was lovely seeing the animals enjoy their treats. Everything is very well run, and plenty of opportunities to wash your hands after feeding the animals. Staff all lovely and friendly too. We had lunch in the cafe, which was very reasonably priced and very good quality. The new extension in the cafe looks great. There were no children in our party but plenty of children there and all seemed to be enjoying themselves on the various rides and play area. All in all had a great day and will definitely return.
    We are pleased you enjoyed your first visit to the farm after many years of wanting to visit! Thank you for the lovely comment on our new extended cafe too! We were very excited to open it so it's great to hear you found it reasonably priced and very good quality. Hopefully you can visit us again soon.

    Superb Day Out
    Brilliant day out for the whole family. We took out 3 year old grandson and spent nearly 7 hours there and he still did not want to come home. Compared to other parks like Flamingoland this is superb value for money, with food at a fair price and a place we will be visiting again.
    Thank you for the great review! We do have lots of activities to keep children entertained so it's great to hear that you made the most of the day! Hopefully see you again soon!

    Great day out
    Brilliant day out with a toddler. No waiting for anything. When he wanted to hold different animals he got them straight away. He had fun in the park, soft play and on the tractor ride. Great value for money and very helpful and friendly staff. Lots of hand washing stations/ staff handing out Antibacterial gel after touching lambs etc. Would highly recommend.
    Thank you for you fabulous review! We are pleased you found us great value for money and also found our staff helpful and friendly. We do always try to go over and above for our visitors to make sure they have a great experience. Thank you for recommending us!

    Lovely family day out for both adults and children
    We loved our day at Hall Hill farm. We were staying in Consett for a weeks break and wanted to make sure we visited the farm due to the good TA reviews. We had a lovely time, ours two boys 9 and 3.5 loved the animal handling and would have spent most of the day doing this if they could! Rabbits, Guinea pigs and chicks-they loved it, I have to say so did it! 45 and never too old for Guinea pig snuggles! There are lots of hand washing stations around the farm which we used and everything was well thought out. Tractor rides, tractor barrel rides, feeding the animals, soft play and the playground. It was a busy day but nowhere felt too busy. Would definitely recommend-thank you
    Thank you very much for such a wonderful review and for recommending us! I agree, you never too old for Guinea pig snuggles! We pleased you all loved your day out at the farm. Hopefully see you again in the near future if you visiting the area again.

    Lovely
    We had a free ticket as I adopted a goat for my husband and as part of the pack you get 2 free tickets. The farm is well ran and the staff were absolutely lovely, polite and went above to help. I have two teenagers and they went along with the day and held animals and we all loved the animals and the cafe. If I had young children this place is ideal for a full days outing with all the extra kids activities. I would recommend to families as it is a brilliant day out.
    Thank you for your comments! We are pleased to hear you had a great day out and that you would recommend us to other families. We have a brilliant team here at the farm so we are delighted you found our staff helpful.

    Best day out!!!!
    We visited for the first time with 2 young children. There was so much to do, we didn’t manage to get around everything. The kids loved holding and feeding lots of different animals and all of the staff were really friendly, chatty and welcoming. The gigantic outdoor play area, tractor sandpit, sledge slide, bouncing pillows and indoor softplay kept us busy in between seeing the animals. We all enjoyed the tractor ride and the sheep racing (particularly the commentating!). There were lots of toilets, baby change and hand washing facilities. The cafe was spacious, clean, really reasonably priced and the staff were very pleasant. We had toasties, cakes and kids packed lunches which were all lovely. We couldn’t have asked for a better day out (other than a little less rain). We will definitely be back!
    Thank you for the 5* review. It sounds like you had an action packed day and made the most of your visit. We really appreciate the fabulous feedback. We look forward to seeing you all again in the near future.

Visited on a rainy day with elderly parents and teenager children. I was so impressed, beautifully kept farm and animals, lots of timed activities to get involved in and very friendly staff. Wish we lived closer and were able to visit more often!

After following the farm on Facebook since a few years, we decided that it’s time to see Hall Hill Farm with our own eyes. It was a great day out, the team is so friendly and welcoming, the farm is clean and all the animals can be seen up close, some can be fed and stroked. Plenty to do for young children but even for adults, feeding lambs and Highland Cows is enjoyable. Farmer Richard and his team made us feel very welcome. I have nothing negative to say and would definitely recommend a visit.

We originally came just to see the highlands but we quickly fell in love with all the other animals too.
My daughter is 14 so too old for the play areas but these looked great for the younger children.
We fed goats, sheep, donkeys, ponies and alpacas,
My daughter held a chick and fed a lamb.
We then went for something quick to eat. We were served quickly and the food was with us quick too, it was nice to see that the food and drinks here weren’t overpriced. Most places are these days.
We had a really lovely day.

Visited Hall Hill for the very first time yesterday as part of a birthday party. Lots to do and see and we ended up staying all day as three year old did not want to leave. He loved the crazy golf, softplay, feeding the goats and lambs and of course the bouncy pillows.

An amazing experience from start to finish. Greeted by a helpful and polite gentleman on the reception who informed us of what’s events were happening throughout the day, and gave us free entry tickets due to bad weather!

The farm was amazing — plenty to do and all staff were so friendly. The highland cow experience was the highlight of the day and certainly lived up to expectations. Rabbits and chicks to hold, animals to feed, plenty of outdoor spaces and play parks and a decent jacket potato from the Highland Cafe.

10/10 all round, especially the staff

We have visited hall hill farm at least a few times a year since my eldest (now 4 y/o) son was born. We always have a fantastic time, but today I was especially impressed by the organisation and couldn't leave without writing a review.

It was the busiest I've ever seen it today, on bank holiday Monday, but everything was so slick that it never felt crowded. The tractor and trailor seems to have been recently upgraded, and the newly extended cafe looked lovely inside.

The staff are fantastic, an absolute credit to the owners, and actually, we saw "Farmer Richard" multiple times in different areas throughout the day, always busy, he clearly cares deeply about his business.

Highlights for us are the play barn, the outdoor play frames and the small animal petting areas. We love the special events throughout the year, with Halloween a particular highlight; we also intend to visit for Christmas this year.

Great to hear you are regular visitors to our farm. We are delighted you were impressed by the organisation, our staff work hard to make sure all visitors have a great experience. You are right, we have just upgraded to a bigger tractor trailer ride so it seats more visitors. Thank you also for the lovely comment on our newly extended highland cafe. Hopefully see you at our Halloween and Christmas event!
