Our grandchildren love visiting here. So friendly. The animals are well cared for and so close to see safely. Plus a farm shop and plants for sale! You do need a dry day though!

Good little free farm. My little girl enjoys a trip. Can but buckets of vegetables for £1. If you're nearby, it's definitely worth calling in for a visit. Food is okay in the cafe. We ate outside. For some bizarre reason, there is a small indoor cafe room for families and one which doesn't allow children in. Found that a... More

A lovely small, free, farm. You can buy buckets of food for a small amount which is well worth doing as you get to feed all of the animals there. It only takes less than an hour for a visit but is well worth doing.

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

we went for the day to check it out and it was really good, you can buy animal food for a pound and feed the animals and buy plants, etc. unfortunately we didn't get to try out the cafe as the hot food stops being done around 3 but we did get to try the amazing cakes so tasty. would... More
