I went to Willows Farm with my two young children and my two nieces, they had an amazing time and really enjoyed themselves. I would like to say a special thank you to one of the staff members who was not only extremely helpful and friendly, she went out of her way to help me find my baby boys comforter... More

just wanted to drop a note to say thank you for a lovely day out. We visited willows last Saturday with our 20 month old son and had a fantastic day. We have visited a number of farms but this was by far the best. The facilities are excellent, the farm is clean, hand washing facilities are excellent and all... More

Another fab day out at Willows. With three children aged 3, 5 & 8, there was plenty of entertainment for all. We needed longer as this time did not even feed or cuddle the indoor animals as was such a sunny day outside. The 5yr old particular loved the ride on cars and tractor ride, 8 year old, the inflatable... More

Pleased we were able to help keep 3 children entertained - which is more than a handful! - and that they all found their favourite things to do. Our all inclusive price is designed to make the day carefree for our visitors and by the sounds of it you had a busy day. Don't worry if you didn't get time... More

Fantastic day out for the family!! My son was invited to a birthday party, he found the activities great fun and from my perspective the organisation and attention to detail was excellent. We stayed to enjoy the farm after the end of the birthday party and found lots of great indoor and outdoor adventures. At the end of the day... More

Fun all the way is how I describe Willows Farm. Very friendly welcome from the ticket office at the entrance. Child friendly in every sense, this Activity Farm has taken great care to extend play as much as possible. We had our 8 yr old and 10 year old grandsons with us, admittedly the puppet shows and singing were too... More

This was the second time we have taken the grandchildren to Willows Farm. Both times they have had a great day. It seems expensive, but if you take a picnic then the only expense once in is the cost of ice creams. They had great fun and we were totally knackered at the end of a great day. Thanks again... More

What fantastic grandparents you are treating your grandchildren to a day at Willows! Exhausted children by the end of the day is great news as we know the kids have had a brilliant time and hopefully they climb into bed and sleep without too much fuss which is good news for the grown ups!! We are focused on value and... More

There is something for all ages here, it's all excellently well designed, clean, tastefully done. Nothing tacky. We were staying with family locally and went twice in one week - once at the weekend and once during the week. It's true that during the week some attractions are closed, but the grounds and facilities are so extensive that there's still... More

We visited for the first time with my 5 year old. It was a fabulous day. There is so much to do and everything is very well thought out. This is a place you can easily spend a whole day at, we did.

I've got 3 children 2,4,6 years old and they had something to do for all of them. The rides suited all them and the bouncy castles were a great energy burner, together with the ball park. My 6 year old picked the winner in the goat race and made her day. So much to do in the 7 hours we... More

We were not expecting to spend the day here and thought it was expensive but on arrival it was easy to access and plenty of car parking.
