Went as 2adults and 2children under 5. Large indoor soft play area but seating around it gets full quickly. People seemed to be eating their own food. Farm itself over medium sized area but ideal for small children. Large outdoor play area with seating. Best thing by far is indoor area for petting animals like goats and rabbits. Great that... More

We took our 14 month old son here for the afternoon and we really enjoyed the animals and play facilities. You can take the kids into the pens and get up close to the rabbits, goats etc. The playground areas are really good and the bouncy castle is brilliant. Unfortunately the refreshments are poor and he entrance fee for over... More

This is a great farm to visit, especially if you have very young children who may find a large open farm too much. The indoor and outdoor play areas are great, especially as they have a soft play area especially for young children. There is a lovely picnic area but if you don't take a picnic, the food in the...

Visited Rookery Farm yesterday for the first time as a party of 2 adults and 2 young children (ages 2 & 3) and had a fabulous day out. It helped greatly that it was a sunny day enabling us all to pack a picnic and sit outside at one of the numerous picnic tables. There's plenty for young children to... More

Visited Rookery Open Farm today for the first time. It cost £6 for me and my daughter to get in and everything inside (other than food and drinks) was free. You can bring your own picnic to eat there but their own food and drinks were reasonably priced anyway. There is a large soft play area suitable for young ones... More

GF had organised a few hours to meet friends and their young daughter here. A few hours. Worked really well. I had brought my own children here 15 years earlier and it's been updated, great cafe and I door facility for tumbling about. Lots of animals to see and a large picnic area if you bring your own food (as... More

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.
