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.

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

Just got back from here after spending 4 hours getting frozen through from watching the children spending most of the afternoon on the inflatable slide ! I was worried that it would be too young for a 6 yr and 9 yr old . They had a great time but sadley as an activity centre NOT farm . It could... More

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

Would recommend a membership if local which includes entries and all activities. Can be a bit repetitive if you go often though

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
