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!

We held our 4yr old twins party here last Saturday. All 10 children and adults had a fantastic time. The staff couldn't do enough for us, I would highly recommend this for little ones party's.

This place looks nothing like the photos. The cafe and shop are the only updated places. Everything else is run down, messy and half of the pens/cages are empty. Most things are broken or old and tatty. The woods look tidy and the place looks mostly maintained but it's spoilt by emptiness and lack of animals and things to do.... More

We arrived at 10.30am on a Sunday, to find that we were the first arrivals that day (Farm opens at 10am). Friendly greetings all round and we set off to explore the Farm. My grandchildren (aged 3 and 5) particularly enjoyed the rabbits, guinea pigs, pigs, goats, chickens and ponies. They held a rabbit (I had a cuddle too) and... More

I've been a few times with the kids and there's always plenty to fill a good few hours (although I'm not sure what we'd do if it was raining!). The kids love the animal petting and feeding and all that stuff, and there are plenty of things to climb and play with. I was thoroughly entertained on one visit by... More

Good afternoon Drum Duke, Thank you very much for your review of our family-run farm, and your feedback is most useful. I know what you mean about visiting in the rain, we would simply suggest a good waterproof coat, layers and wellington boots, you'll have just as much fun as in the peak of the summer! We are open all... More
