We booked the 2 hour horse riding trek- the views were stunning. They even took the horses up some rocky paths and streams which made it seem like a real adventure.

Indoor play area was clean, spacious and pleasant to sit... More

Very disappointed and just felt like we were conveyor belt customers. Ride was mostly on tarmac roads whereby views were restricted even on horseback due to hedges. Only a very small amount of time actually on a hill side. Our ride leader didn't engage with the group other than to issue instructions and was not friendly. She only spoke to... More

It is a small farm. It ran a special show on creepy crawly show - nice to watch. It also do horse riding for children with is not included in the ticket price. All other activities are inclusive. The feeding of lambs was interesting and fun for the kids. Plenty of benches for picnic.
