He enjoyed it in the barn where they have a petting time and feeding time with most of the animals. There are donkey rides and... More

I visited Smithills Farm with a friend of mine, on first glance it didn't seem too great but when we went into the main entrance we were kindly greeted by friendly staff. The staff were more than happy to point us in the right directions and also explain what shows they would have on and what they entailed. The Farm... More

Today took a group of 16 children to Smithills Farm had a fantastic day. Staff very helpful especially Jason who looked after our group superbly and nothing was too much trouble for him. Only slight problem was service in cafe only one serving so quite slow.

Fabulous visit for younger children, my grandson aged 9 loves this place. Encouraged to hold chicks, tractor rides and donkey rides available, he loves the place. Food choices are limited but good quality and tasty.

Thoroughly enjoyed our day out at smithills today. Excellent value for money and fantastic staff. The only little thing I would suggest is hand gel pumps as there isn't any (maybe this is just something I noticed as I work in a hospital) but I really feel this would be a great idea!! The dogs walking round are so friendly... More
