My partner and I visited with our daughter last month. Our daughter was free entry as she is under 1, and at £2.50 per adult you can't complain! Additional charge for petting the rabbits etc and horse ride but we did neither this time as our little one was too young in our opinion. We were given a map at... More

Visted today with my 1 year old and 3 year old. Spent about 2 hours here and cost 8pound so was well worth it. The kids loved feeding the hens and sheep. We ate in the cafe which was nice and not too expensive. Overall a nice day out

Perfect for small children and toddlers. Plenty of animals to get up close to. £1 charge for petting session- we met baby rabbits, chicks, a rooster called reg as well as many others. £2 for a horse ride. But be aware these sessions run in the afternoons. Cafe and shop on site which sells plants and produce grown on site.

We have been visiting Acorn farm for many years and have watched it grow and become more popular over time. There is enough for the children to see and do and two small play areas for toddlers and juniors.

Lovely place to visit, not too big and plenty of animals for children to interact with. Petting animals were small enough for little children to cope with and the goats were easy to feed and very friendly. Would visit again

Acorn farm has been a favourite family destination for the last couple of years. The farm has lots of animals, including the infamous Chino and the very cute meerkats, that will keep little ones entertained for an afternoon. With pony rides and petting available at certain times plus a small playground, acorn farm definitely gives you value for money. We... More
