We went for the first time with our 2 year old grandson and had the most lovely day. It was a sunny day so we took a picnic and found plenty of tables and there were shady spots beneath trees. There were young goats to stroke, pigs, a horse, sheep, rabbits and guinea pigs to look at together with tractors... More

The actual place is great with lots of lovely animals and a great play area it was such a shame the staff let the place down. The staff working the shop were incredibly rude to both me and my friends on separate occasions. They don't sell milk for children as they may not have enough for coffee and tea- strange... More

Lovely afternoon out, daughter loved going into the pens with the goats, who were extremely tame. Nice picnic area with bouncy castles, swings and slides. Indoor play area great. Would highly recommend.

We were aware that Northampton schools had gone back from their Easter break so it was lovely and quiet. We came from Rugby, we had 3 children aged 8,10 and 12 and it was fab. The petting area was lovey, the walk round the farm, and then the indoor play area were all excellent. We'll worth the entry cost. The... More

Great place for younger kids. Plenty of outdoor play equipment. Two bouncy castles with unlimited use inc in price. Indoor soft play and lots of opportunity for interaction with livestock. Sometimes they have special events where there is opportunity to see other animals like snakes and tortoises. The food and drink is cheap and cheerful and you are welcome to... More

My 2 year old son and I went here today with a friend and her toddler son and we had the most wonderful day! This place is amazing, it has everything for children and adults alike, we could have stayed all day. The animals are just gorgeous and being able to get so close to them is a real privilege....

My husband and I have regularly taken our two grandsons, now aged 7 and 3 over the past three or four years and every visit has been most enjoyable. There is an excellent and varied range of play equipment both outside and indoors for all ages under 10. I am afraid the play equipment takes precedent over the `farm side`... More

We have been here several times and each time I have struggled to get my daughter to agree to leave! The owners are farmers who have obviously worked incredibly hard to get everything to the standard it is. The outdoor play equipment is clean and well looked after, the animal pens are spotless and the indoor play area is great.... More

Every weekend I am asked "can we go farm today". It's easy to spend a few hours here, tiring out the little ones. There is an indoor play area that allows parents their children to burn off all that pent up excitement. The outdoor area is full of lots of intwrwting things to see and do. There are animals to...
