Very poor value for money and we had half price tickets. An open field with a few animal in a few pens. All of the animal water bottles looked as if they had green slim/mould in them and looked disgusting. We were there throughout the day trying to get our money's worth where my daughter played mainly on the bouncy... More

We have been coming here for years and have watched the steady decline of the farm and its stock. In parallel we have watched the steady and quite ridiculous rise in prices. The owners have invested in a new shop / cafe, which is clearly where they think they can make their money. It is staffed by truculent teenagers most... More

I was put off going by some of the reviews, so was pleasantly surprised and we had a great day. I guess it depends on ones expectations but if you go to a farm things will be agricultural. The animals were brilliant and we saw babies of most types. The nature trail was a surprise treat and our two year... More

Took my grand daughter on a lovely day. Expensive to get in for the amenities available. Lots of chickens and goats but other than feeding them the feed you buy, no handling experiences at all. Plus side the play barns were good as they were very quiet. Finckley down has far more animals and you can stroke them and better... More

We stayed at the attached youth hostel and had free entry as part of the package. A lot of kids enjoy themselves . Feeding animals, playing on trampoline. Good nature trail.

We took our little girl here for her 3rd birthday. Just me my husband and her. What a fab time we had. ..apart from that cold wind which has nothing to do with the farm it's self. My daughter loved everything...all the animals, she even fed a goat. She loved going on the tractor and throughly enjoyed easter egg hunting... More

Shop and cafe were the only modern buildings the rest of the site comprises of a number of old and ugly farm buildings offering very cramped conditions for the animals and birds. They may well have one or two 'rare breed' sheep and interesting or unusual chickens but other than the occasional notice showing the breed name there was no... More

I wasn't expecting much but I was happily surprised! Loads for kids to do there were two trampolines, two big bouncy castles, big indoor softplay, outdoor play area, sandpit and the animals! Well worth the money I actually left somewhere not feeling ripped off! Well done cholderton charlies!
