Willows Farm is simply an excellent day out for the kids. There is so much to do, come rain or shine. We particularly love the goat racing! Staff are so helpful too... 10 out of 10 all round.

We have been to Willows Farm to enjoy Captain Chicken with my grandson today. Wrong. Captain Chicken is being moved so not the undercover fun we had hoped for. We were assured there was plenty of undercover fun for a 9 and a 12 year old. Wrong again.We were there for a little over an hour and at over £40.00... More

We are in our 2nd year of membership at Willows. It is constantly being improved and the attractions refreshed. The staff are always friendly and chatty - even when it is pouring with rain.

After visiting many times as a child, I thought it was time to take my younger sister as I remember having great days here. I wasn't let down at all.

This is a great day out with the kids. We have a family annual pass which is great value as we can come for just an hour and don't have to worry about paying the daily admission charge which I think is quite a lot. There is loads for younger kids but my 9 year old has pretty much out... More

I took my 3-years old granddaughter this week after a visit the same day to Butterfly World. She loved it. Not cheap - £30 for the two of us but there are hours of fun here. Small animals to hold, larger ones to feed, loads of bouncy castles and swings and things to wear them out.

We had a great day here, so much to do it's virtually impossible to try everything in one day so we'll have to go back. Admission price seemed expensive until we saw the place. Well worth the cost and my grandson loved every moment. Definitely go again and highly recommended.
