Great for kids parties - all organised for you. A... More

Took our grandchildren to the farm at half-term. Thoroughly enjoyed Pets Corner and the Tractor ride, feeding the animals and playing on the toy tractors. A great day at the farm.

Amazing place and staff. Quite pricey but kids love the donkey rides, we all love the tractor rides. Pet corner is fab experience being able to stroke and feed the animals. Plenty of animals to see and great play areas indoor and outdoor. Cafe always busy. Love visiting here and Halloween activities were great. Birthday parties fab value too.

A great day out for the little one's however it is not the cheapest. The price was £6.00 per child and £7.00 per adult. I took my two grandsons age four and seven. The farm has several animal attractions, baby goats, rabbits, cows, donkey's, including Donkey Rides (£1.00 per child) owls, reptiles and spiders. They also had an area for... More
