Description: Cefn Mably Farm Park is a huge all weather family farm attraction...
Cefn Mably Farm Park is a huge all weather family farm attraction & softplay in one. Set in rolling countryside close between Cardiff and Newport. We offer a unique mixture of farm animals and softplay areas - the ideal place for action packed days out with the kids, birthday parties, schools and groups. The park is designed for families with toddlers to teens. The fun begins as you enter the indoor soft play barn where the children can let off steam and you can relax using the free wifi with a coffee and a slice of home made cake on a comfy leather couch. Once you and the kids are worn out from feeding the animals on the farm and playing on the electric go-carts and real diggers. Then on the way home you can visit our new Farm Shop and Butchery called "Moody Sow Farm Shop" and pick up some good old fashioned 28 day matured steak for your tea and some home cured, home smoked bacon for your breakfast!!!.

Good animal selection, very child friendly, the site is still developing but has improved over the past 3 years I have been with my granddaughter. Entrance fee is £4 and a bag of feed 50p. All animals are friendly to hand feed except the pigs. A great way to spend a couple of hours although I do agree the indoor... More

We have been there last September. We was a bit impressed with the great selection of animals and how well organized it was. Big and free car park, you have to pay a fee to go in think it was 6 pounds for adults. When you walk in there is a big cage with a great variety of birds, also... More

Someone told us about this place and we were not in any way disappointed! Entrance only £6 each, £2.00 for a pony ride and £2.00 for a racing car ride (these are optional) The soft play is an amazing area and sets aside a good play area for under 5's. The animals are all well looked after, and the staff... More

Being two middle aged friends and animal lovers we decided to spend a few hours here. First off a coffee in the large cafe, excellent coffee too. There are friendly animals galore, especially if you have a bag of food in your hand!! The rabbits and guinea pigs are adorable and the children can sit and cuddle them and even... More

It was very crowded when we took our grandchildren and the restaurant was packed and very noisy. However, basic food was good also the coffee. Outside activities were popular and well organised and indoor play area, although too crowded, was enjoyed.

We went to Cefn Mably yesterday with my daughter and her family. It is a few years since we last went. In those days it was good but basic but now it has improved nearly beyond recognition. So much of interest for all the family has been added plus the great benefit of the indoor play area. As with all... More

Terrible service, money orientated. My little boy went missing in the mayhem of the indoor play area. I was unable to locate him due to too many people there. Children were also visiting the toilets in the play area with free access to adults too. Exit of farm in the Palau area was too accessible for children to just leave... More

I've been here twice, once on a school trip with a group of children and once in the half term with my friends little girl. If you are a family going out for a couple of hours it is a nice day out but with a school trip where were the guides to talk the children through the animals or... More

First, let me say that I'm a regular customer at Cefn Mably (or at least was until today!). Its a bit pricey, but the play area is great and you can relax and have a coffee when the kids are playing. Its half term, so we went there today. I'd been there 75 mins and was asked to leave because... More

My partner and I completely forgot that it was half term- so naturally when we got there it was very busy! However the staff were all very helpful, overflow parking was well organised and we managed to get a seat in the dining area. Our son loved looking at the animals and we had a great time. Plenty of animals... More
