Also we held some chicks, brushed a pony, watched the ewes being milked and had ago at milking a cow ourselves. All the staff are so friendly creating a... More

I went here a few years ago. It was really fun and I got to hold a baby goat. I like it how they let you touch all the animals and help with the farm. They also get new pig once a year. It opens up once a day which is really nice, and while you are waiting you wait... More

Actually adults love it too! Good value for money and children can pet and hold chickens, bottle feed baby lambs, listen to funny commentary. Milk the cow. Watch sheep being milked. Groom the pony. Feed the greedy goats, and geese and ducks, see pigs, donkey and llamas. Have a pony cart ride. See a sheep shorn, eat a lolly made... More

Had an excellent afternoon at Boydells. My grandsons loved the hands on experience. The guys made all the children welcome and allow them to get involved. If you have kids and they love animals then Boydells is the place to go.

This is clearly a working farm which is run by a family who enjoy their job. Unlike a lot of other farm attractions, youngsters have the opportunity to touch and feed the variety of livestock and the guided tour is a must. The youngster who I took thought the place 'fantastic' and on the drive home was nagging me to... More

I cant believe ive only just heard about this wonderful place. If you havent taken your children there yet you should do so. The farmer has such enthusiasm for his animals and speaks about each variety in such a way that the children learn such a lot,and they get the opportunity to feed lambs pet chicks and even milk a...

I have taken my children to several farms, but Boydell's is by far the best! The guided tours are a must, as they are not only educational but also very funny (Kiley the farmer is very entertaining & witty). We've watched lamb's being born (amazing!) sheep being milked and sheared, bottle fed the lambs, held baby chicks & lambs, and... More

I have been to Boydells many times now and each time it does not disappoint. I have 2 young girls 4 and 1, they both love it. So much for the children to get hands on with in a safe environment. Kiley is a great farm guide and it is clear to see he and the rest of the team... More

Took both my kids here today. Was really enjoyable couple of hours. Kids got to feed & pet all the animals as well as finding out lots of interesting info. This is a family run farm & everyone was friendly !

We went as a family with 2 children aged 4 and 7. The children enjoyed all the hands on animal experiences with the opportunity to hand feed lots of animals, bottle feed the lambs, milk a cow, hold a baby chick and lamb, ride on a cart drawn by a Shetland pony and watch a sheep being sheared. The time... More
