No doubt about it my children absolute love it here. They would go every day if they could. As an adult though I definitely see it's downsides. Personally I think it's over priced for whats on offer, I also think that there is a distinct lack of toilets too. The parties always seem a bit disjointed, I could go on... More

We have been visiting this farm since 2010 and the hospitality and thought that go into the entertainment for the children is fantastic. The holiday season activities are legendary and Halloween is an amazing time to see the team at their finest.

We bought an annual pass for this place and use it on average once a month. We love the fact that there are a variety of activities on offer and the play areas always seem to be a big hit especially when the weather isn't too good. The pony rides, although short are just great, then there are the tractor... More

I was given this place as a recommendation and I was bitterley disappointed. Arrived here for lunch and found the food to be quite expensive £3.95 for cheesy chips, my jacket potato was delicious however for £5 I didnt expect to be using plastic cutlery. So make sure you take a packed lunch!!!!!! We went through to reception to be... More

Staff seemed very friendly, Animals were good, park area was ok a bit tiered in places but adequate. However the café was awful food was terrible and so expensive, pesto pasta is... More

The farm itself is great for all ages three generations on our trip and even though it was really windy we all had a great time the play area inside would be great for slightly older children we came with our 8 month old grandson who was a bit overwhelmed by it but it was obvious that the older kids...

This farm and adventure land is so themed about teaching the children about the animals that they have, llamas, chickens, ponies, rabbits, pigs and reindeer. They get the children to interactive and feed the livestock, which they love and also are quite open that sometimes that animals are bred for food and some for pets but not said as an... More

I get really upset when I read negative reviews about Thurleigh Farm. I have been coming here for six years with Grandchildren and love the place more each time I visit. I came here on Tuesday 7th April to introduce my niece and family to Thurleigh and they, along with my Daughter in Law and 2 grandchildren had a great... More

We really enjoy the visit yesterday. Both the playground and farm animals are enjoyable, especially to my children (2 and 4). Pony riding was exquisite although they only gave the children a very brief moment to ride it. I recommend children to come when the weather is nice though.

Everything was dated, didn't meet their own timetables, waited 55 minutes for a sandwich. Rides given by the most unenthusiastic staff. Only about 10 different animals.
