Lovely place for children to go for a morning or afternoon. The farm isn’t too large so you couldn’t spend a full day there. The animals look very well looked after and plenty to do.

Yes. The grounds are mainly gravel based so depending on the wheelchair may be tricky to push in places, but that said the grounds are mainly flat so good for prams/wheelchairs etc. It's a lovely day out when sunny!
