It was so intimate and cute to stroke and brush the animals especially without staff watching your every move like at... More

Have visited the farm numerous times now with the children. It's free and great for young children. You can pay you use the playblarn or eat at the restaurant so can be as cheap or expensive as you make it

We went with a toddler and found the farm experience very good. The easter egg hunt was fun, the play tractors were a big hit and the play barn was very good. We had to wait for a table in the cafe as it was very busy but it was well worth the wait. Excellent food and a great selection... More
