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.

Today, my daughter and I visited here with a friend and her two daughters. We were very lucky with the weather. Thurleigh Farm, is a wonderful venue with jam packed activities throughout the day. The tractor ride, was the highlight for my daughter and feeding the gorgeous lambs. There's so much to do & the staff are very attentive. It... More

Dont get me wrong - Thurleigh Farm in theory is a good idea - but i don't think the place has been organised / managed properly. The indoor slides and the ball-pit are probably the best part about the farm - my son certainly loved going in their. The outdoor slides and play/climbing equipment are quite good but if the...

my son attended a quad bike party and had so much fun. He went on indoor play then outside on the quads, it was well organised. The food was of average party quality. There weren't many signs around telling you where to go, but hey my son loved it.

Thurleigh farm is an incredible waste of money. There were almost no animals & the tractor ride was 2 mins around a field when supposed to be through the wacky woods. The place stank of nasty cheap fried food, none of the outdoor toys had been wiped dry & don't get me started on the play area. I was tempted... More

Paid a lot of money for not a lot. The place is looking tired with big gaps under fences for toddlers to crawl under to a pond area. All outdoor toys dirty & not been wiped down. A distinct lack of animals. Some rabbits, 2 goats & a few lamas. A dangerous wet decking area also. We spent half hour... More

Thurleigh farm’s Halloween was really good this year; we visited late afternoon Thursday October 30th with the intention of staying for the firework display at 6.30pm. Firstly the bad news, some of the outdoor toys/games need replacing especially the pedal go-carts which seem quite dangerous to me but I can’t stop my kids wanting to go on them, so please... More

This place is a rip-off! We paid £30 for three adults and a toddler under three. It wasn't until we'd paid the money and been allocated the wristbands, that the staff, who looked young enough to still be at school, then informed us of age restrictions for some of the 'attractions.' We were shocked when we saw the state of... More
