Well worth a visit. Its very reasonably priced. Recommended donation is £2 adults and £1 for kids. We have been several times now and my daughter still asks to go. It was her idea to go today. The feed is only 50p a bag and the goats and sheep love eating it. There were even 13 four week old piglets... More

We often visit this farm. But we find the children get bored easy as we have been so many times. The place and staff are lovely and cannot complain. The animals are well kept and always come and say hi!

Horses, ponies, donkey's, goats, various sheep, cows, ducks, pigs, faclonry, turkey's and more. What made this trip a little more special was a week earlier the sow had a litter of 13 piglets, amazing to... More

We wen for a family afternoon out and really enjoyed it, it is fantastic value for the money and as it is a small farm it is ideal for toddlers to walk around and give you a friendly atmosphere compared to some of the bigger farm parks. The play area is lovely for the kids and plenty of seating to... More

We were stopped by a tall female staff member who I assumed was the manager. She was very rude towards myself, my wife and my and children. I... More

It's a good place to visit for an hour or so, parking area is small and the entrance is quite confusing. Once inside its a good little farm, although the area to get to the sheep was locked, nothing telling you why and also didn't see any cows. Play area is ok although not a lot for younger children. There... More
