Manor farm country park is a beautiful example of English countryside...at its best. It is a place we often visit as it is so local, but also it is free, except for parking. There is plenty of space for picnics, walks, open space for families, there is a play area and also wooded area for walking. All those areas are... More

Interesting to see setting for Wartime Farm and reconstructed Victorian and wartime farmhouses. More information on farming equipment and practices would be useful, although there were various guided tours available. Being midsummer, there were a number of baby animals to see (piglets, chicks, ducklings, kids, rabbits and a donkey foal (another one expected shortly)). Generous pot of tea from the... More

My friend and I took our 9 month old babies to Manor Farm after I got some discounted tickets through work. I hadn't been for a few years when I took my older children. The farm is nice, staff are friendly but it's lacking on animals which is what we wanted to see. There are plenty of chickens and ducks... More

We decided to go to manor farm, had asked a neighbour who had been and said it was nice but small, we thought we would take my little baby to see the animals, I checked the price on the internet which was £7 per adult, that was ok, but was shocked to see we had to pay a further £3.50... More

....considering what's on offer....ok, it's a nice place and if you were planning to make a whole day of it with a family picnic in hand, I guess it's not too bad, however, if like me and my son you just fancy a quick visit, then at £7.00 each + £3.50 to park your car it doesn't really represent very...

Just got back from a very pleasant day at Manor Farm Country Park. Themed this weekend from World War Two. Kitchens cooking food, soldiers marrying their sweethearts, heavy horses working the land along with the land-girls. Displays of war-time vehicles, people dressed up in the full dress of the day, be it soldiers, land-girls, wardens and evacuees. Americans, Germans and... More

What can I say, the Hampshire Culture Pass is great when all your child wants to do is look at Tractors, see the animals and ride Trains (Royal Victoria Country Park). It's great value for money. We parked easily without additional cost and flew through the reception signing in on the way through. Our son wanted some food for the... More

I love Manor farm as it has both hands on experiences of farm animals for educating children and lots of information on how farming was done before and during the war. There are displays of the BBC series about farming during the second world war, a Victorian school and an old farm house to look at. My grandchildren love it

Firstly, as other reviewers have mentioned, I was annoyed to have to pay £3.50 for parking (particularly as I had to park in a field they were using as overflow parking) in addition to the admission charge. The farm comprises of a buildings / yard area and then a large paddock area. We saw everything in the buildings in about... More

We're back to having to take the newest generation out only in the school holidays which does mean crowds of children everywhere and especially at places like Manor Farm. It is located in a lovely country park which is a great place to go, farm or not. All day parking is £3.50, not unreasonable these days. However out granddaughter does... More
