You probably know us as a lovely place for children to see the animals, run around in beautiful countryside and let off steam in our state-of-the-art play barn - but there's a lot more to Sacrewell.

With the help of £1.4 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund, our 18th century water mill is being transformed into a national centre for milling excellence - take a tour and find out how your great-grandparents got their daily bread. Foodies can also join a tractor trip around the fields of our tenant farmers Riverford Organic Farms (it's on our land).

Then there's our wildlife trail, scavenger hunt and two new rambles - if you're lucky, you'll see the rare red kites and brown hares. Seasonal events range from our Lamb National to ploughing with vintage tractors. You can even meet a film star - some of our shires appeared in War Horse.

In our 50th year as a charity dedicated to agricultural education, we continue to welcome students of all ages who want to learn traditional skills and get an insight into rural life. We hope that all our visitors not only have a great day out but feel they've learned something too.

Great day out for young children or those with an interest in history and farming heritage. With unprecedented access to the full spectrum of typical farm yard animals and birds, and set in the most idyllic rural surrounds, Sacrewell offers a fun and educational day out. The working water mill is a highlight and the playbarn looked really popular. There... More

We have a season ticket which if you work out the maths, is a no brainer. The whole farm is great. Outdoor play park I feel lets it down a little. With the amount of kids present, a better park would top this space off and make it a GREAT attraction. Nevertheless, the indoor play centre makes up for it.... More

With the refurbished watermill and farm museum, together with tractor rides and animals to feed, Sacrewell Farm is an ideal attraction for families. There are organised events all year, from watching spring lambs being fed, to Santa in his tractor. If the weather let's you down, there is the indoor adventure playground with tunnels and slides to tire any tiidleypeeps.... More

Took my 3 and 1 year old grandchildren here and they loved it. Not expensive and you could spend all day here. You can buy food and feed the sheep and goats, also the birds. There are a wide variety of animals including pigs, ponies, donkeys, rabbits, peacocks, ferrets etc. There is a bridge over water to play Pooh sticks,... More

We visited Santa this year which was great! The price was brilliant as you also get to spend the day at the farm and the children get to enjoy the play barn. We never tire visiting here and it is safe to say it is my children's favourite place. The facilities are wonderful. Come rain or shine we will always... More

We have been to Sacrewell Farm a few times over the past few years, usually at Easter when we meet the Easter Bunny and go Easter egg hunting which is great fun and the little ones love it. This was our first visit at Christmas time and thoroughly enjoyed it. My son saw Father Christmas and I liked the way... More

Good afternoon, I would like to set the record straight for anyone reading this that you do not have to pre-book. We pre-book 1/3 of the seats and leave the rest for those who come along on the day. The price covers your entry to Sacrewell for the day, a visit to Father Christmas and a present. We put on... More
