As a gift I received a voucher to attend the “Owl Experience” at the Lanes Garden centre, Risley. Our reservation was Sunday 30th November. We arrived about half an hour early so had a browse around the garden centre. The centre also accommodates various animals and birds. The animals included Donkeys, Goats, Cows, Pigs, Ducks, Caged Birds and what I... More

I visited with my friend Viv and her grandchildren and thought it was wonderful, we actually were able to bottle feed the lambs, it was a wet and dreary day but we all had a good time. Weel worth the visit. Jo

They have a lovely selection of animals for children to look at and for £1.00 the children can have a bucket of food to feed the animals. I will be taking my grand... More

I have been visiting this farm since I was little and I've always loved it. I'm not much of a gardener so visit purely for the animals. I always buy food which means I can interact with the goats, pigs, cows, donkeys and many other animals. This farm warms my heart and I hope it stays open long enough for... More

I visited with a friend one afternoon last month as we didn't have anything else to do, we bought some animal feed (cabbage leaves, carrots) for a £1 and went on to feed the goats, pigs and cows! There were also chickens, geese, guinea pigs, rabbits and various types of birds. I didn't visit the cafe, but the farm itself... More

James' food is lovely, the coffees are great, his 'Davewich' I would especially recommend, along with proper chips and delicious choice of cakes...Although you can't please everyone...James' is definitely doing something right...as it is always busy with happy customers! The variety of animals at the farm (free to experience) is amazing, and there aren't many farms that allow access like... More

I visited here with family at the weekend and as the 'family cafe' was full we asked if we could sit with our child in the over 10's cafe (our child is nearly 2), we were told that the manager's 'policy' (a poster on the door) was that children under 10 can only go in the family section. We were... More
