We have been visiting Willows now for 6 years. Our two girls love it and would all day cuddling guinea pigs if they could. It is good value for money if you become members but quite an expensive day out otherwise. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is the food, which despite a recent menu overhaul mains disappointing.

My granchildren love this place and there is plenty for them (ages 3 to 6 ) Most of the attractions are free once inside and the only additional costs are mainly food related and getting them past the shop on the way out. I went on a day which was pretty overcrowded and we found things to do inside without... More

Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate that some of the terrain is on a gradient however we do offer wheelchairs should you have the need to use one to help you get around more easily.

Have been to many farms with my children aged 5 and 1 but this one is very different. There is plenty to do, all included in the price and no extra hidden costs, like many other places we have visited. All rides, everything was free! Amazing place. Bouncy castles, assault courses, sand pits, park area, trampoline... that's just a fraction... More

Although entrance price is fairly expensive there are are always offers if you look for them and once in all the attractions are included. We took a 4 year old and a 9 year old and spent about 6 hours there. There aren't too many animals, given that it's called a farm, but those that there are seemed well cared... More

Overpriced for what it is. It drizzled with rain so they shut down the inflatables outside ( I asked the staff why) yet Woollys Show was outside in the rain whilst the indoor theatre was locked up. Food is appalling in the cafe. Ordered 1 adult baked potato with chili and 2 kids potatoes that came with a drink. Total... More
