My wife loves owls so I booked the Encounter With Owls experience for her Birthday. What a fantastic day we had. Bob, the guy running it show, was excellent and very knowledgeable. We flew 4 owls in the field and a Kookaburra in the meeting room. Would certainly visit again and maybe try one of the bird of prey experiences.

The garden centre side of Lanes with the animals was ok. Admittedly it is slighty run down, but the children love feeding the animals and being able to touch them. The garden centre has a medium range of goods, and the staff were brilliant. If I could review that side if things I'd give it a 3 star. My biggest... More

Not quite Open Farm, this was not for me, would prefer to see animals in the open rather than caged. When I visited there were children looking/feeding the various animals and they seemed quite taken with it.

Only £1 for a bucket of veg to feed the pigs, goats, sheep, cows, etc. 50p for a pot of corn to feed the chickens. Chipmunks,... More

I have visited this place previously and come across these reviews by chance whilst looking for something else. I, along with several other reviewers received absolutely disgusting service from the coffee shop but NOT from the garden centre. However if you look at the reviews this is really suffering because of them. Please note there is a separate place to... More

My daughter loves visiting this farm to see the animals! Free entry, only £1 bucket of veg to feed the animals! Lovely little farm. Nice cake and coffee in the cafe too! Will be visiting again!

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
