I visited with my family on a very wet Bank Holiday. Which didn’t impact on a wonderful visit. Lots of hands on experiences for the children. Lots of entertainment throughout the morning. Would thoroughly recommend and look forward to another trip next year.

We love Hesketh Farm and visit regularly with our grandchildren. The children especially love the trailer ride and listening to the farmer talking. On previous trips the farmer talked slowly and clearly and directed his comments to the children and maybe asked them some simple...More
