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.

However, the staff on the Ticket booth were helpful and we were offered the best price available for 2 children, 2 OAP adults and wheelchair user.The "top"... More

We love willows and visit at least once a month. There's so much to do and the activies are always changing so you never get bored. There's plenty to do for a full day. When it's dry we enjoy the gold panning, sheep racing, fairground rides, bouncy castles, huge inflatable slide, Tristan the tractor ride and animal feeding. They also... More

Kids had fun doing a little bit of everything - placing bets for a pig race, watching the llamas and goats and panning for gold. They had a lot of fun going on the with zip line and bouncy castles too. A great way to easily spend the better part of a day.

Great facilities both indoors and out but entrance fee is way too much. Bring your own food/picnic as cafe is overpriced for less than average food.

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
