Join in with a daily schedule of hands-on activities such as bottle-feeding kid goats and calves, baby animal encounter where visitors can hold baby rabbits and chicks, and pig feeding too! Don't miss the brilliant tractor ride - it's very bumpy! (weather permitting). There are lots of friendly farm animals to meet, and there is plenty of indoor and outdoor play equipment too, including trampolines, a soft play area with ball pit, and the Farmer’s Straw Den! Tea shop, gift shop, free parking. Don't forget to visit the Longdown Farm Shop for delicious locally sourced produce.Useful Information: Hands-on activities all day for the whole family. A lot of areas and play equipment are under cover, but on wet or cold days, wrap up and bring wellies for the ch ildren. Sorry, no dogs on the Farm – free, lockable kennels are provided. Open daily 10am – 5pm. 16 Feb – 3 Nov 2013. Longdown Farm Christmas Barn opens in December. – the rest of the Farm will be closed.

We went on Bank Holiday Monday and had a really fantastic day out. The farm was already busy by the time that we arrived mid-morning but we never once felt that it had an impact on the enjoyment of the day. There were queues for feeding times but the staff accommodated the increase in numbers and no-one missed out. The... More

We visited on a weekday so the farm was probably quieter than on the weekend, but there seemed to be plenty of staff for the hands on activities available. We enjoyed the trampolines and the play area overlooking the deer meadow as well as all the ducks, goats and guinea pigs etc. The cafe looks a bit old fashioned but... More

We visited in april 2015 during our holiday to the new forest. My partner and I had been years ago before children and were so excited to return with our 4year old and 18mth old. the farm is wonderful. The opportunities to feed and handle the animals are far superior to most farm parks. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.... More

Went here with our 4 and 2 year old and we loved it. Reasonably priced really was under £40 for 4 adults and 2 children. We were able to take part in all the events and particularly enjoyed the bottle feeding. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Lots to do with trampolines and go karts as well as all... More

Visited with my daughter (14 months old) for the afternoon. Very reasonable admission fees - £9.00 adults, under 3's free of charge. The farm itself is quite small but it's surprising how much there is to do still. Generally the day can be taken at your own pace however you are given a leaflet with feeding times etc when entering... More

I have been to many kids farms in the South and to be honest, think that most ceased to be 'farms' a long time ago. If you want an adventure playground like most of them seem to be these days, this is not the place to come. If you want somewhere little ones can experience what being on a 'real'... More

We visited this farm many years ago when our children were young and remember enjoyable visits. We decided to take our 2 year old granddaughter on a nice sunny day. Whilst she enjoyed her time there, we were very disappointed with the state of the farm. All appeared very rundown. In the small animal encounter there was a bucketful of... More
