Went there today, on the rainy day during the "heat wave" and had a fantastic day. Went with one four year old and one three year old and they loved it all. Rides for them were good, loved the bumper cars, caterpillar ride and indoor play room. The falconer, Dave, did two great displays, indoors and outdoors. Kids really enjoyed... More

A great day out lots to do, the staff are very friendly. We have been going now for the last 5 years and we still have not covered everything. A great Family Day Out.

I really want to say nice things, but I can't :'( Recommended to us by our hotel we drove quite a little way to get there, having read the flyers we weren't expecting a theme park or anything, but just a rounded family day out. We managed about ten minutes before we realised our mistake. My children are 7 and... More

Dear Catherine. I'm really sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your recent visit. It's always extremely upsetting to receive such feedback, not least because of the demoralising knock on effect it has on our staff when they all work so hard to provide an entertaining day out. I must say when I first started reading your review I wasn't... More

Visited on a wet Monday with our 2 kids (aged 2and 4) after half term. Venue was quiet which meant very little queuing or crowding on rides. We spent several hours here and didn't really see everything on offer. For our kids the soft play areas (the little stars for under 5's with associated café was excellent but worth getting... More

Hi Stuart. Thank you for your lovely review. I'm pleased you found good value for money and many hours of entertainment here and still didn't get round to doing everything on offer. I appreciate your common sense approach of not judging a book by it's cover - once being a working farm things were not built for purpose but I'm... More

Lovely day out. Staff very friendly. Lots to do for the kids, welcomes all age groups. Good choice of food in the cafes, and reasonably priced. Recommend season tickets if your a local.

We visited yesterday and it tipped it down all day! Not that we really noticed as there was so much to keep the kids entertained it didn't matter at all.

Thank you for the great review. It's certainly a bonus for our visitors here having over 110,000 sq feet of indoor facilities when the weather isn't so kind.

We went to the big sheep last year so decided to come here this time.

Many thanks for the review and for deciding to pay us a visit this time around. I'm delighted you had an overall enjoyable day and ended the day with a worn out 3 year old. I do apologise the train wasn't operational on the day of your visit. We actually had a hydraulic pump failure (a mere £5000 to replace)... More

When we arrived there was hardly anyone there, the place looked like it was closing down. The lady on reception was lovely and really cheerful which lulled me into thinking maybe it wouldn't be so bad!! Then we go through the doors into a maze of abandoned warehouse rooms. There was meant to be an indoor ride but no one... More

Dear reviewer. I am genuinely sorry to hear your day out with us didn't live up to your expectations. We are a family run attraction and work hard to offer a good value, full day out for everyone so we were obviously very disappointed to read your comments. Originally we were dairy farmers and many of the buildings on site... More
