As we live so close by, we often come here when money is a little tight or the kids are in need of cheering up. The goats cheer my daughters up every time without fail! Free entry although a donation is expected and we give what we can every time. Cafe is lovely, we often go for the posh fish... More

Hi T2T, Glad your little one enjoyed their visit. Yes, the Farm is free to enter but as a charity we always accept donations. They help to keep the animals fed, watered, happy and healthy and ensure that we can run all of our other community services as well! Hope to see you back soon. More

Ah... where to start... The farm itself: chilled, easy fun, nice atmosphere. Not always loads of animals, but always enough and always an easy, relaxed, day out with the kids. The new playgound is great. The cafe is AWESOME : local food, super-fresh, inexpensive, massive portions, and lots of it sourced from the city farm itself. Lovely people, books and... More

This is quite a small place, but it is packed with animals and my little one really enjoyed his visit here. It is all outdoors, but that didn't seem to bother him! There is also a little play area across the road.

Visiting the farm doesn't take long but I always enjoy popping over to see the animals. Timing can play a huge role - it's always better when there are babies around!

Hi there, Thanks for your review. Just so you know, the sheep are currently off visiting their boyfriends therefore lambs in spring. The two brown goats will be visiting a Billy over the next month which means we will have kids next year and the two Gloucester Old Spot gilts (the black pig and pink/black spotted pig in pen together)...

Hardly any animals there and the ones that were there were housed in dirty, smelly conditions. I would not take my kids there again. Overall and thoroughly disappointing and upsetting experience. Shame as this could be a wonderful community resource.

I am really sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your visit to the Farm. As a small working farm operating on less than 2 acres, we are limited with the number of animals we can keep at any one time. We are therefore always going to have a small number of livestock, however, we pride ourselves on offering our... More

I've never visited the farm, but the cafe is great at any time of day. Feels like you have wandered into the set of the Hobbit (in a good way!). Relaxed, family-friendly, good for a sandwich or a main course. Vegetarian-friendly. Firstclass ingredients, freshly prepared. Could be a useful personal refuelling stop in Bristol not too far from the M32... More
