I accompanied my son, 4, on his school day out to Boydells Dairy Farm, and we had a super time. We watched a few sheep being sheared, fed baby goats milk from a bottle, and many other exciting things you never do in a normal day.

Absolutely loved this working farm. Oh and the kids did too! Lots of lambs, goats, cows etc plus it is very much hands on. The owners really interact with the public very well and are honest with what they do there. Take a picnic before it opens in the afternoon it has a very nice area. Shame you have to... More

Visited Boydells in mid August and had a great time. Very welcoming staff and farmers very entertaining and informative. The animals are well looked after and our young children had plenty to see and do. Love the interactivity. The kids enjoyed feeding the animals and milking the cow. Would highly recommend and definitely come back for another visit. Well worth... More

We have been here a few times now and never fail to be disappointed. Starting in the picnic area before the farm opens, there are picnic benches and even a sheltered area, and a small stream that my children enjoyed playing in. The farm tour is very informative in a way that the youngsters were able to engage and enjoy.... More

We visited this farm on Saturday and had an amazing afternoon, my partners 7 year old son enjoyed himself so much interacting with the animals and being able to get up close to young lambs and chicks. A good memory from the school holidays. We will definitely go back again.

I came across Boydells on trip advisor when I was having a look around for things to do locally - and thought the reviews were so good I had to take my little boy here (although I was just as excited as he was!) We were not disappointed. Very reasonably priced entry, drinks (only 50p) and big bag of animal... More

Just a lovely place run by a lovely family. Real animals to feed, stroke, milk and watch. Kilie gives a great tour - very entertaining and informative. We came 2 years ago and my now near-12 year old was keen to return and my 6 and 2 year old loved it too. As did Grandma (not Nanny - they have... More

Such a great place to get up close s d personal with the animals and also learn lots about them. Would love to visit when it was a bit quieter to have the opportunity to have a go at all of the wonderful things on offer such as bottle feeding lambs, collecting eggs and donkey rides. Great place for toddlers... More

This place is brilliant, we were shown round by Kilie who was super informative, fun and managed to herd a crowd of unruly adults and children around the farm and get us all to listen. I took my niece who's 8 and my nephew who is 5 and they loved it. My nephew was fascinated by the sheep being milked... More
