Have been to Boydells a couple of times now and have had a super time. It opens at 2pm to the public and an informal tour of the farm takes place not long after the doors open. I recommend you join the tour as the farmer makes it very funny and encourages the kids to get involved ie, how many... More

Although the Threadgold family have been running Boydell's as an open farm for over 26 years, time has not diminished their passion and enthusiasm for their work, nor their lovely stock. An extended family visit the day before Good Friday enables me to confirm that all the positive feedback on Tripadvisor is well deserved. What can I say that's different?... More

Excellent trip yet again. Been back couple of times with an sen pre-school group & will continue to do so. So interactive & disabilities really taken into consideration. Everyone included, parents & children. Great that groups allowed in privately before public so we had whole farm to ourselves. Everyone there works soooo hard, running the farm, catering for groups &... More

We took my two granddaughters aged 21 months and 4 years. Excellent hands on experience for the little ones as they encourage you to hold, stroke and feed the animals. This is a proper working farm and the family make you feel really welcome. Good value for money. We will definitely be visiting again.

Had an excellent afternoon at Boydells. My 8 year old loved the hands on experience. A hard working farm that make children welcome and allow them to get involved. My daughter has cuddled and feed the lambs. She is a very happy little girl. If you have kids and they love animals then Boydells is the place to go.

I visited the farm with my husband & children. The farmer gave a guided tour of the farm explaining about each animal as we went round.The children were allowed to hold lambs & chicks, & feed all the different animals around the farm. The children loved bottle feeding the lambs & milking the cow Toffee. A cart ride for a... More

We've just returned from this fabulous farm. It was a brilliant day out for all the family. Our son got to cuddle chickens, bottle feed lambs & hand feed llamas, donkeys, ponies , sheep & cows. Lots to see & great value. Highly recommended. :)

I took our grandson here today and he loved it! He is only a toddler so it was probably the first time he had seen farm animals together. He was agog with wonder and loved stroking the sheep and lambs. He was not frightened of any of the animals even the enormous bull that is there. The staff are very... More

Arrive at 2pm and let you and your children be taken on an awesome tour of the farm with this wonderfully friendly family. Don't expect expect glitz and glamour - as this is a PROPER working sheep farm with 500 plus lambs wondering around - but you can expect and warm welcome, a very numerous and informative tour and a...
