This is an OK farm, but it is small and you once you feed the animals there's not really much else to do. It's good that it's free. But I have never spend more than an hour here. It could do with a little revamp tho. The animal cages are very old. If I am honest I would rather go... More

Nice place to visit, wander around, look at the plants and animals and go into the shop. The café is not very good; food and drink is a bit pricey and service isn't always very good. Take your own if you want to stay a while.

Great place for an inexpensive trip. Free entry and £1 for a bucket of food is great. I like that it is larger good rather than seed or pellets so easier for toddlers to feed the animals. Food was okay in the cafe. Had spaghetti on toast - was definitely cheaper, thinner bread than I'd like but I can put... More

My grandchildren love going here to see the farm animals and feed them. There is an excellent cafe with home made food. The nursery has excellent plants. For a family there is something for everyone and on certain days the Owl section is open too.

My husband bought me a half-day's Owl Experience with Bob Morley as a birthday gift this year. I love owls and have always wanted a chance to get closer to them but nothing prepared me for these amazing few hours. Bob is incredibly knowledgeable and was on hand to impart lots of very interesting information about these beautiful creatures. I... More

We come once or twice a year to see the animals and feed them. My daughter enjoys it, as well as myself. Wouldn't recommend anything other than a snack in the cafe and drink. Although it never seems to be open when we go. Other than that I'd recommend to people with children
