Where to start, I'll start with the positives staff are friendly, cafe serves nice food at reasonable prices and plenty of play equipment, you can see money has been spent on new trampolines, play park and various other things. Now the negatives the place is very dirty especially indoors in the soft play area, everything needs a good clean the... More

Excellent venue for a school group! Clean and spacious rooms Beautiful grounds with plenty of space and facilities - the kids loved the animals and two good sized trampolines Delicious food and great service from the staff - couldn't be better.

This was our first visit here despite living locally as we've been put off by the bad reviews. However I took my 1 and 5 year old today as my daughter was invited to a birthday party there and we had a brilliant time! It was great value for money with the inclusive tea and coffee for parents, the tractor... More

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

Dear Gromy, Thank you for your feedback regarding your visit to the farm, and we are terribly sorry to hear your visit wasn't what you'd hoped/expected. We are currently in the process of making significant improvements (we are always improving as much as we fiscally and physically can) and hope you'll pop back soon to see the changes we've made....

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

Good morning DrMo, I would like to express my anguish regarding you review and offer my apologies you felt you visit didn't go as you'd hoped. First, our prices reflect peak and non-peak changes each year, as do a significantly large portion of the tourism industry, I can assure you that this has nothing to do with our business failing....

We were looking for a lunch stop on our way to Frome and stopped off here. Freshly made baguettes and paninis , along with large mugs of coffee, well presented by friendly staff. As it was Monday lunchtime it was very quiet. We decided as it was a nice sunny day to visit the animals too. Lots of babies, a... 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
