Lovely petting area and great size indoor play area. Would choose rookery over mead open any day. Small cafe for tea/coffee etc. Really good price for entry and all animal enclosures clean with happy looking animals.

If you have kids it is a great day out . There is a big outdoor area and a soft play area inside. I don't think they take cards though so you you will need cash.

We took two grandchildren 5 and 9 and they had a great time. It was lambing and they lapped it up. No end of different animals to see and was a great experience for them. They loved the petting area.

We have been here a few times now over the couple of years and we have never been disappointed. Staff make you very welcomed and the children can get close to the small animals, have some fun outdoors and get tired out in the soft play area - this is unknown little treasure in northants. IDEAL FOR ALL AGES :)

This place is great for kids to get up close and personal to animals. There's also a great indoor soft play area and outdoor play area. The only thing this place could do with is an ATM or being able to pay on card.

I have been to this farm twice and I have had a lovely day out here both times. The animals all look happy and well cared for and the children's outdoor and indoor play equipment is good! The staff are friendly also.

I have just returned home from visiting the Rookery Open Farm today. There was 4 adults including myself, my four nearly five year old son, an eleven year old and a fifteen year old. I think this 'farm' is really good for younger children, up to about 12/13 in my opinion, the animal areas, are pretty small. you can go... More

We took our grandson for a day out at Rookery farm. The price was a bit high but plenty to do and see although our 2.5 year old was not willing to stay within his age group but came to no harm. The one dissappointment was the tea room. Apart from cake there was nothing our little one would eat.... More

We like this little farm, it's not massive but entertaining for any age kids. When you go through the pay area you enter an indoor play area, plenty of seating. After this is a walk through double doors in to the farm. You can get up close to the bunnies and goats, it's great for the kids. More outside are... More
