We visited early on a Monday morning and despite being only one of a few there the staff were very accommodating, flexible and friendly. Lots to do from feeding lambs and calves, holding the rabbits, going on a tractor ride and the favourite with our wee one - a great spin round the barrel rides. Great fun even on a... More

Absolutely horrendous attitude from staff on our departure, tryin to publicly humiliate me infront of a gift shop of other families and customers after children within our group apparently 'handled fur less baby bunnies who will now be rejected an apparently die' I was told this rather abruptly and very publicly, after coming home with very upset children who also...

I visited Tweddle Farm with family for an afternoon out. The farm is great value for money offering lots to do including a Tractor ride for everyone and a 'barrel ride' for the children. We had lots of fun feeding the animals (bags of food available for 50p) and we when the keepers give the young animals their bottles, they... More

I visited today along with my family. lots of attractions in disrepair hydraulic fluid all over my son clothes from the micro digger. Lots of animal pens over grown with no animals inside. No staff present in the animal petting area meaning my son could not pet the animals. £23 for a family of 4 is way over priced in... More

This is a lovely place for smaller children to visit, but really you need a nice day to do it. The lamb feeding is awesome and the children love it. The café isn't very big, but the staff are nice.

There are better farms around to visit. We got a voucher for £11, if we had paid more I would have been disappointed. The usual animals sheep cows rabbits and a few birds. The soft play area was very poor and small consisted of 1 slide and 1 small climbing frame area. The outdoors play area was poor. We left... More

Visited here with my husband and 18month old daughter. Went on a Friday in term time so it wasn't busy other than a school trip which was easy enough to avoid. Great selection of small animals to look at, my daughter loved the rabbits. We were given a schedule on the way in so knew when the sessions were for... More
