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

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!

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

As we have visited Big Sheep Little Cow several times before and attended a brilliant Birthday Party here last September, we decided to book our little boys 5th Birthday Party and WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!

On so many levels this is a great place to visit for young children. From the play area to the live farm animals, where children can touch and hold small animals including feeding lambs.
