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

A friendly family run business with a lot going on. Run by a Farming family with farm animals, plants for the home and garden, gardening tools animal feed and a great little restaurant next door with home cooking and a separate family room so that us older people can have good food in a quiet atmosphere. With it being such... More

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.

We called in with our two year old Granddaughter, as we found the place listed on TripAdvisor. No entrance fee to the farm which would be good for people with several children to amuse! 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
