We paid around £18 entry and that included bags of feed for the animals and add ons..petting experience and pony ride. This was a must, we... More

Been to Acorn Adventure time a couple of times now and it is a brilliant day out for all ages. Can't believe how cheap the prices are and loved how you can feed and pet the animals. Defiantly recommend for a day out!

My mum and I took my niece (3) and nephew (1) here for a little day out. It was brilliant! You can feed the goats, Chickens and sheep. I have never done this before and I was suprised at how gentle the animals were taking the food from your hand. We paid £1 extra each to go into a room... More

Acorn Farm is a great day out. My two girls, 5yrs & 4yrs had such fun. You can buy hen&duck feed and sheep & goat feed as the children loved feeding the animals. The petting centre is well worth a visit, we held chicks, guinea pigs, hens, and there were rabbits and goats there too. Horse riding is also available,... More

This is a small farm but has everything you need on it. All the animals you'd expect on a farm are here including meerkats and horses. The farm has a lovely community feel about it and I can't believe how cheap it is to enter £1.50 for children. There is a lovely playground, petting area, opportunity to feed the animals,... More
