After a recent visit to Rookery open farm I felt the animal enclosures are starting to look very run down. The rabbit enclosures looked liked they needed a good clean out and a poor baby donkey stood in a field in the pouring rain looking dreadfully sad and unhappy. The entrance fee is quite high but I think more money... More

I had a great day out today at rookery open farm. I came on a visit with my church group and the children. Nice big play area inside with indoor picnic table area . Cafe was extremely reasonably priced, farm is lovely and you can interact with the animals inside the pens too. It's a small farm and the play... More

Having my brother, wife and their young daughter stay with us we were looking for somewhere to spend a few hours to keep the little one happy. I had never been to Rookery open farm before (we had always gone to mead open farm when our children were young) so thought we would give it a go. Admission price for... More

Nice place to take the kids for a few hours, plenty to see and do, get up close with goats, lambs, rabbits. Large petting area. Outside theres a nice walk where you can let your kids run free and visit horses, sheep, cows and goats. Feeding opportunies available as well. At the end of the walk theres a playground area...

Our party was 2 adults and 3 children and it cost us £31 entrance fee and it was cash only. There wasn't alot for the youngest to play on in the soft play area as 2 of them were under 5 so we spent alot of time petting the animals in their pens or in the outside play area which... More

I can't believe the price for admission, so very expensive.. We decided to have lunch when we got to the farm as we called ahead and we were informed that they had a Tearoom ..... Well, apart from a poor choice of pre packed sandwiches, packet sausage rolls, three flavour of crisps and chocolate bars .. Nothing was suitable for... More

We saw Rookery Open Farm on tripadvisor and as we were in Northampton decided to visit it one morning during half term. Luckily, we had read on Tripadvisor that they dont accept cards and we were able to get cash before visiting. Parking was in a big field next to the farm and we directed into there, so it was...

Went here with my two boys aged 2 and 4. No charge for the youngest but £6 for the 4 year old and £6.50 for my husband and I - extortionate in my opinion. Whilst there is enough to keep you occupied for a couple of hours, parents are essentially paying to watch their children pet the animals, play on... More

I took my little friend Ella here for her 6th birthday present, it was a lovely little afternoon out, really good indoor and outdoor play areas. The animals are really cute and I love that most of them you can go in with to stroke and cuddle. I would fully recommend this for a lovely afternoon out especially for younger... More

I absolutely think that this place is over priced but it is a great place for the kids and they enjoy it.
