We took the g-children here over the fist May Bank Holiday as the weather was not too clever. They are 5 and 3 years old and absolutely loved it. The soft play area is large, interesting and well put together as both the children had terrific fun running around exploring every nook and cranny. The slides are also perfect although... More

What has happened to Big Sheep Little Cow, We visited recenty. It really was a bit of a shambles, no one seemed to know what they were dong, the tour was not as good as it used to be. The food was poor and the place was generally grubby! We will not be going back in a hurry!

Great day out with the family at Big Sheet recently. Great tour of the farm with Marcus and then the kids loved the balls pool and slides. Good day out in rain or good weather.

As today was cold and wet we decided to visit the Play barn (soft play area) at Big Sheep Little Cow. I have visited many times over the last 9 years but have not been back for over a year. On arrival we thought the outdoor area around the car park was in need of a spruce up. It looked... More

A very good day out for children aged from 2 to 12. The farm trip is excellent, and our guide, Luke, was lovely with the children. He was also very knowledgeable and humorous. Our panini lunch at the cafe was tasty, but took 30 minutes to arrive. No problem really as we sat outside in the sunshine. the children enjoyed... More

Farm trip with Luke was great, what a lovely guide who also added humour to his commentary. Great hands on experience for children with adults. Cafe and reception staff great too. Thank you!

The farm tour with Luke was excellent, couldn't fault it. He was patient and understanding of individual needs. However the cafe service was appalling. We waited an hour and a half for three sandwiches which only arrived when we complained / we didn't get any apology but the table next to us got free drinks as there food was delayed.... More

On a wet bank holiday this venue is perfect especially for smaller kids (mine are 7&5).. Very friendly staff looked after our family group wonderfully including the farm tour (a must), the bakery, the cafe & soft-play area. We could easily have spent longer here, we've been before & will come again... Thanks to all the staff especially our 'tour... More
