They have a great choice of plants for the 'plantsperson' who knows a bit about plants and wants something different or choice. The knowledgeable and helpful staff make this a great (and tempting) shopping experience - and then you can have a... More

The kids wanted to get out the house so I decided to take them to Acorn Farn, Very reasonably priced to enter and kept the kids happy for a good few hours. All the staff are very friendly and are always on hand if you have any questions. We had dinner in the cafe and again there were no complaints... More

We enjoyed are day apart from no disabled parking and PEOPLE SMOKING WHEN YOU ARE FEEDING A 4 MONTH OLD BABY. I met a friend who had been the same week she was also disgusted with the smoking as she had a young baby also.

Hi there, thank you for your review. We have put some temporary signs up in the busy areas where there are likely to be children and some permanent ones have been ordered. I hope this resolves the problem. Thanks again More

We visited for my daughters birthday and it was really disappointing. All the attractions were fully booked by 2.20pm and literally all my children saw were a few sheep, some ducks and one pig which had a huge nasty boil on its head. We live in the country and I think we see a bigger variation of farm animals on... More

Hello, thank you for your review. I'm sorry that we didn't meet your expectations when you visited, we mostly get very happy visitors who come back time and time again. Because of this the farm has become very busy, and our popular attractions do sell out. We encourage people to come on rainy days or early on to avoid disappointment.... More
