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.

We took our 6 & 4yr old girls to Longdown farm, we all had a fabulous day. At first we thought we wouldn't be there long, but we spent good 5hrs. There is plenty to keep the kids entertained for example; peddle tractors, larger go karts, £1 elastic ride ons, mini indoor soft play, trampolines, outdoor play area and big... More

I took my 20 month old daughter and my mum, we all had a lovely time stroking and seeing the animals. My daughter also loved the swings and soft play area. So much to do although only small we were there a good 4- 5 hours. (My daughter loves animals) So if you're little ones love animals it's a great... More

We were on a family holiday in the area, with Peppa Pig World being number one destination. Our caravan park had a leaflet for this farm and thought our grand daughter would love it. She did. Initially we thought the admission seemed high, but when compared to other attractions in the area it turned out to be reasonably priced. Glad... More

Had a good day out here, bit smaller than some other farm parks I have been to, but overcame this with all the hands on bits that they have here. The staff were busy busy going round running everything but most were friendly. The pony rides here are only weekends and holidays, parking is provided in a gravel area over... More

My son got to bottle fed a calf and goat, groom a goat, feed large goats, have a tractor ride, had feed ducks, hold small animals, milk a cow and feed pigs. In addition to all the hands on animal encounters there's a giant barn... More

We visited Longdown Activity Farm, and a hive of activity it is! It's £8.75 per adult and £7.75 per child over 3. Everywhere we looked there was something to do or look at, this interactive farm is well equipped to keep children busy for hours. As my son is only 13 months we spent two hours walking around and playing,... More

Reasonably priced day out with grandma, granddad and 2 children under 7. Lots to do and help with, at no additional cost after the entrance fee. Regular feeding events throughout the day which the children loved including goats, ducks, pigs, kids, and calves. Staff very helpful, informative and friendly. Other activities to keep them occupied included a hay barn with... More
