A truly magical day visiting Santa at his grotto. So much to see & do & we felt like we had been transported to Lapland. The staff were so friendly & made our day even better! This is an absolute must for little ones. Amazing!!! Well done Willows!

We have been to willows several times over the past 4 years and have been very pleased with the improvements made since our first visit,particularly the toddler town addition which my son loves as sometimes the soft play can get a bit busy (especially at lunch time). My only grumble would be the cost of food being very expensive but... More

Had my son's 2nd birthday there and have visited a lot. I guess it can be viewed as kind of pricey but you get a lot for your money and that's just a generic visit. The party was very well catered the staff are very enthusiastic and don't come across they're there to do a job but more like they... More

I recently had my 3 year olds party at the farm for 10 of her friends and their mums. I couldn't praise the experience enough - if you want something stress free that will keep boys and girls entertained for the whole time then Willows is a great option. We did the toddlers party which is for 3 and under... More

The reviews on OMD were very balanced between Excellent and Poor where else, WF's Excellent review was higher than rest and it proved to be just right.

We took our 18month old twin grandsons on a Thursday. They loved it. Bit young for some of the things yet but was difficult to prise them away from the ride dumpers and tractors. The big tractor ride was very good. It was very reasonable cost as we had one free admission voucher. Didn't go into the cafe so can't... More
