A family fun day out!

Adorable animals to feed and hold, sheep racing and animal demonstrations are just the start of your day out! With fun fair rides, children's shows, Tristan the Runaway Tractor, inflatable fun and acres of adventure play too.

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.

In the autumn there is potato picking and pumpkins to harvest in October, with Santa's Grotto and his magical ice rink in the festive season.

Our 2 Years old and 5 Years old daughters enjoyed every bit of the day. It had so much for the children to do, even an ice skating rink and Arts and Craft marquee.....Staff were brilliant and we loved their Elves dressing ups. The whole place is lovely clean and fresh, with a gorgeous Christmas decoration everywhere and visiting the... More

What a great day out, we took our friend and her two children to visit the farm and santa's grotto, great value for money we had build a bear where each child got a bear to build, then there was an option to buy a costume for it which we did. You also got a token to visit Santa going... More

Took my fiancé and two young sons to the Christmas trail. To be honest it should be the miserably staffed ridiculously over priced have a fight on the un supervised attractions trail. Where for your £70 entrance fee you find empty marquees toddlers picking up lighters from tables in the activity tents, and in supervised rides where bigger children push... More

we had a nice day out with our granddaughter. Lots for kids to do and enjoy, even toddlers. I do not agree with what some others have said about the food there, though not exactly "farm produce" it was similar to what is available at other child oriented places in the London area, and not comparatively expensive.

Nice farm, well organised and plenty of variety. The tractor trips are an excellent addition. Downside is the poor food quality and disorganised service. A nice little coffee shop serving good quality, healthy food would be a massive advantage. All in all - a great day out but take sandwiches.

This is a lovely place to visit with little ones. I visited the first time when my son was 7 months old and although he was probably a bit young to fully enjoy it we had a lovely time and have kept coming back and he is nearly 2. There is lots to do, feed the animals, hold a pet,... More

Great day out with the family, although without membership rates could get a little expensive to go more than that "special occasion". At nearly £40 for a family of three, with Adult tickets taking the brunt, it really needs to be a day trip rather than an hour or two away. We went at the end of September, where although... More

It's great to hear that your 4year old and his friends had a fun filled birthday party with us. There certainly are lots of activities to choose from and it sounds like the little ones managed to play in many of the play areas. You will have to come back to visit the animals. Thank you for taking the time... More

We have been coming here with our daughter since she was tiny and she's now 5. We used to love this place but after today no longer. We paid £46 to get in and were allowed 1 pumpkin per child meaning our 1 pumpkin cost us £46!!! Despite picking it ourself in the pumpkin patch at 3pm on Halloween 2... More

We are sorry to hear that your experience did not meet expectations. Pumpkin Festival is one of our most popular events and whilst children have the opportunity to visit the pumpkin field to pick their free pumpkin there is a lot more going on as well. With a range of shows to see from pig racing and sing a longs... More
