We have visited a few times but only for birthday party's. I Was thinking of bringing my children this half term but after looking online for the prices I'm shocked that an adult has to pay as much as a child. For this reason we probably won't return unless invited which is a shame as we are close by.

We had an amazing time and although the animals were a bit sedentary the whole Halloween feel was amazing - I think this place should be renamed as the focus is def not the animals it's about play, fun, fire engines and great Halloween fun in our opinion the bunny cuddling and farm stuff is only 10% of the whole...

We have taken our three grandchildren here 3 times now in the last year, twice during term time (they had a different half term holiday) and once in the school holidays. On all three occasions they had the most fantastic time, of course there is much more to do in the holidays, but once your children/grand children are big enough... More

We buy a 3 month ticket every summer. It is completely worth it if you live local enough and run it over the summer holidays. Each week has a different theme as well as a different story telling session. Catch a tractor ride to the woods and hear stories brought to life as you walk round the woods and meet... More

Anyway, it was outdoors we were really here for.... Unfortunately only 3 staff??!! Lady in kitchen also doing tills and cleaning etc, nobody supervising... More

I agree with all of the other people who have said that this place is over priced and should not describe itself as a farm. I paid £27.50 for a sad looking soft play. Very few animals. The pony ride was cancelled due to rain though I'm quite pleased now that I've read about the poor girl who was thrown... More

I also visited on Sunday 24th August as did the previous 2 contributors . It was a very special day and we all had a good time thanks to 'Farmer Mark' and his young team. They are genuinely fond of the children, have a great sense of humour and are very knowlegable. Everything ran to schedule and we all had... More

We went to Thurleigh Farm yesterday with two boisterous six year olds and a two year old .. We spent the whole day there & the kids were entertained the whole time .. From trampolines, to wooden houses, fire engine rides (including squirting water from the hose), to tractor rides & train rides, to quad biking, bunny cuddling, pony riding,... More

Visited the farm today with some friends and my 6 year old daughter and it was money very well spent! There were a variety of activities on offer, all included in the ticket price. The staff overseeing the activities were excellent, interacting so well with the children and all credit to them! I'm a child minder and will certainly be... More
