A family fun day out! Adorable animals to feed and hold, sheep racing and animal demonstrations are just the start of your day out!

And if the sun decides to have some time off there's pleny of under cover fun with Woolly Jumpers indoor play barn, Captain Chicken's Egg Dodge, The Farmyard and Toddler Town. With seasonal event each school holiday there is always something new to see and do. From lambing in February, Bunny Hunts at Easter, Sheep Shearing in the spring and an A-maize-ing Maze throughout the summer.

My daughter went to Willows Farm for the afternoon with her grandparents and this is what she said about the visit : " I loved it ! I held a Guinea pig it was so cute. There was so much to do and I especially liked the pig racing."

We've been to the city farm today and we had a fabulous time. My 2 yo enjoyed very much and so did we, the adults( we've been 5 adults with one child, not the usual party, I know!)

Lovely day out. Lots of park type things to do, mixed with the usual farm activities and the odd little fair ground type ride. Well maintained and lots to do without little ones having to queue. However, I find it hard to get passed the £60 entry fee for 2 kids under 5 and 2 adults. They're putting themselves in... More

Great place but very expensive. With 6 grandchildren I would love to take them all. Think the adult price should be at least half as they can't really go on any of the actitivies.

We had a very good family day out at Willows with the two grandsons aged 2 & 4. Although it is quite expensive it is a full day out and very enjoyable. It is based more on education but that is not a bad thing. The staff were very helpful and when showing the animals they came across as very... More

We have been members of Willows for a couple of years now. Whenever you ask the kids what they want to do the answer is always (and I mean always) Willows Farm. The outdoor play areas is awesome and safe. Then there is the 2 giant bouncy castles, the bouncy slide, the trampoline or the 2 fun fair rides before... More

Although it may seem a bit pricy to get in, once you are in you are spoilt for choice with the activities available, and get great value for money.

We brought the grandchildren here last summer. They have a farm shop as well which you can visit and buy all sorts of goodies without having to pay an entrance fee. You do have to pay to enter the park but although we thought it was quite pricey, the grandchildren loved meeting and greeting and stroking the farm animals. They... More
