Went to willow Farm today with my daughters and 20 month old grandson. What an amazing experience it was. The value for money ( contrary to some reviews on here ) was exceptional. The amount of things to do and see is varied and fun. From the fantastic animal Barns to the rooster singsong , the carousel to the art... More

Being local to the farm, we are fairly regular visitors to willows. We've been 2 days in a row and had two lovely experiences, largely centred around the fantastic shepherd in the lambing centre who is funny and informative, and tipped off today by myself and 5 yr old seeing our first lamb safely born. We enjoy all elements of... More

I went to willow farm today with my 1 year old nephew and 4 year old niece, my partner and two nannies - cost to get in was high but expected, what I didn't expect was the sights to be so poor. Now I understand it's cold and the animals need to be kept inside, but there was nothing there!... More

A children's paradise and plenty for the grown ups too. I have a job to get my 12 year old granddaughter away from Willows. Food is a bit pricey for what it is, but a lot of people take a picnic - plenty of places to eat your own lunch.

We believe Willows is a great family day out and your review is testament to that. Picnics are always welcome and there are plenty of picnic areas to enjoy them with the family as you quite rightly point out. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we look forward to welcoming you again soon More

We take our children to Willows farm every December. They love meeting the animals, having a tractor ride, running around and going down the slides at the barn. But the best thing in winter is Santa's grotto. They absolutely love it! Especially the bit when Santa gives them a key from his workshop and they can pick their own present.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is great to hear that you love to visit Willows. It's always a fantastic sight when you see the look on the children's faces when they are able to choose their own gifts from the toy shop. The fact that there is a full day of all inclusive fun...
