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.

For people with kids under the age of 5 (which includes me), this place is a god-send on nice days. Packed full of animals you can pet and feed, activities for kids to play around in (including playground, huge sand pit, tractor ride, bouncy castles and slides). While a little pricey, I like the fact they don't nickle and dime... More

I went with my son and his 15 month old daughter so I would consider it a family outing. One adult, one senior and a baby - the entry fee was £28! The young lady at reception asked would we like to buy animal feeding packets for an extra fee. Amazing! Pay an entry fee and then pay to feed... More

This great day out is a must for all ages of the family and a great way to bring grandparents, parents and children together. Watching kids run around in a safe and pleasant environment is what every parent or grandparent wants and to be able to sit and relax whilst witnessing it is very special. A great day out and...

I'm a member, so I go here all the time. Absolutely the best value thing I am subscribed to!! I absolutely love it and so does my daughter, aged 2.5yr. There are just so many things to do, and in winter they open up a completely new barn for arts and crafts, providing all the material themselves. There are no... More

I have now been to Willows Farm a couple of times. The first time was on a cool late winter morning – we were about the only people to venture out and down the windswept slopes (some additional tree planting may help); but it was nice to have some of the play areas to ourselves. We had been meaning to... More

Really great, so much to see and do. Entry is quite expensive (although you can exchange club card vouchers which cuts the cost massively) however, once you have paid entry everything to do in the farm including the fairground rides is no extra charge. Well worth a visit, the goat racing is great!!

I visited today (7th June), this was my first visit to Willows after spending years going to Old McDonald's farm and Paradise wildlife park. I was overly impressed with the cleanliness of the Farm, the brilliant facilities and friendly staff! My children absolutely adored the show entertainer Daisy, we watched nearly all of her shows! She also took the time... More

Expensive but so much to do and our 5 year old had such a great time that this was easily forgotten. If you have a child under 8 then it is well worth a visit.
