We had a nice day at Sacrewell, however, the variety animals was quite limited. As the responses to comments say, there may well be plenty of animals - but a lot of them are sheep! A map of what to see, and where would be helpful. The tractor ride was excellent, the driver provided a lovely commentary - funny and... More

Took our grandchildren here and had a really lovely day - lots of animals for them to pet and feed. Educational too. Lots of fun animal races like the ferrets, the duck race and the lamb national. Plenty of points to wash your hands after touching the animals. You can also take a tractor ride and until then I didn't... More

Having visited Sacrewell a lot in our children's earlier years, we decided to revisit after a lengthy break oh and what a disappoint it was. A few other reviews comment on the same. There were very few animals compared to two years ago and as others have said more focus on play areas which we avoid as if I wanted... More

Hello, Thank you for your review and we are sorry to hear you think Sacrewell has gone down hill. As a local charity and heritage attraction we try to cater for as many people as possible, hence why we invested some money into our play area this year, alongside the start of our HLF watermill project. We do actually have... More

I was really looking forward to visiting the farm with my granddaughters aged 2 and 6 months. Sadly the selection of animals was pitiful. It seems that the animals have been sacrificed to provide the new play barn. Frankly if we had wanted a soft play area we would have gone elsewhere and it would have been much cheaper thsn... More

Today wasn't supposed to be to Sacrewell but we thought we would go on the spur of the moment and am intensely glad we did.

We've been regular visitors for many years but our most recent visit will be our last as the quality of this attraction has dropped like a stone. Very few animals these days. Large areas are now closed off with no reduction in the admission price to reflect this. Cafe nothing short of abysmal, virtually no food available and what is... More

We actually have more animals here than we ever have done before, having boosted our rare breeds with our British lop pig and piglets. The only area we have closed off at present is the watermill, which is due to... More

We've been going for years but high prices and not many animals put us off a bit with our growing children. Since the new play barn opened we're back and the children love it, it's so clean, huge and definitely the best in the area. Buuuuttt outsourcing the main cafe and the food still isn't great or healthy! The kiosk... More
