Lovely farm and play area. Animals are well keep and communal areas clean. There is a good soft play especially good when the heavens open. You can hold some small animals and there is animal food for sale. The cafe is clean and offers a good range of food. A little on the pricy side so try and stay for... More

Great locn, great fun, lots to do. My toddler can spend all day. But this place a quite an expensive day out, especially compared to some cheaper alternatives around and close enough to be worth the diversion.

Took my 4 grandchildren here and wasn't disappointed loved it. Plenty for children of all ages. Nice to not have to pay for extras once inside. Animals are safe and well cared for.

Getting to willow farms is a bit of a challenge when you are a tourist but Google maps came to the rescue! It's about 1.5hrs away from central London but is definitely well worth a visit if you have young children. They have built it around the character of Peter Rabbit & the entire area is suitable for kids under... More

Great venue for kids although probably only suited for younger kids. A little pricey but there is lots to do and children are kept entertained all day so you can get your monies worth. Good facilities and cafe on site. There are picnic tables which allows you to take a picnic which on a nice day is great!

£18 for an adult and £18 for a child. Not enough to do, only spent 2.5 hours there, just not worth it. Also got injured on the Peter Rabbit assault course. Will not be going back any time soon.

Lots to do, animals to see / hold, Peter Rabbit show, good play activities indoor and out, cafe for food. Plan to spend the whole day to get best value for money. Not a cheap day out.
