we were a bit disappointed by our visit. The cafe is not serving 'home cooked meals' but deep fried frozen stuff and sandwiches… the site has some nice attractions and ideas e.g. the sledge run and the pedal boats, but the sledge runs weren't lubricated so didn't work very well and the pool for the boats was the size of...

Seen this attraction on the website and it looked to be quite a big place with plenty to do......this was not the case. The actual farm is quite small,each activity is half hour and straight after one another,so if there are quite a lot of people at the park you probably wont get to participate in the animal activities also...

This was an enjoyable day out, with children aged 6 and 4. There were a few things the Kids loved, the 'pirate games' in the barn (themed day) was a particular hit with them. As was the sled ride, paddle boats, swamp ride and pony rides. They enjoyed looking at the small animals, and the bouncy castle. The only thing... More

We came for the Pirates and Princesses weekend and had a brilliant day! All the staff were amazingly friendly and great with all the children. Helen in the Riding Centre was lovely and our 4 and 6 year old children really enjoyed their 20 minute ride in the country!

Which is disgusting for a children's play environment they could pick up all sorts in there!! I went to complain to reception... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you had trouble finding us but we are not permitted by the council to put up any additional road signage despite trying for years.
