A few hours of fun for 2 grandchildren

The grandchildren seemed to enjoy it though weren't very impressed with the small animal section. Like most of the farm it is quite run down and didn't seem very nice at all. I... read more

Took my 2 year old and my niece and nephew, 7 years old and almost 4. When you first enter is is a surprise to see the soft play right at the entrance. Then once you tear kids away there is a great outside space, loads of different areas to play with different themes. Definitely a great day out for... More

This is a combination of very large indoor soft play - and outdoor play - area, surrounded by animals from rabbits/hens to ponies, donkeys pigs and Llamas. There are rides on the tractor & trailer and the fire engine as well as themed visits to the woods (Gruffalo, Peppa Pig), depending on season. Generally it is a well run, safe,... More

This is an energetic,creative fun place for young families. There is a lot to do. There is a lovely shabby chic feeling, lots of care has gone into the planning of activities. Health and safety is clearly considered and communicated without being over the top. There is a good fun feeling here, and even when it is busy there is... More

The grandchildren seemed to enjoy it though weren't very impressed with the small animal section. Like most of the farm it is quite run down and didn't seem very nice at all. I expect the animals were looked after okay but the untidy and messy conditions of the cages I think gives out the wrong animal welfare message to especially... More

I have visited Thurleigh a few times with my 2 year old son...he enjoys it and particularly likes the trampolines and the big sand pits. However I agree with other reviewers which say that the place is run down. Some of the play equipment is broken and needs repairing/a lick of paint. The place also seems to be staffed by... More

Lovely day spent at Thurleigh, it was right at the start of the summer holidays so relatively quiet. Our son is 1 and a half and really enjoyed the indoor soft play, some of it was a little old for him but he went down the slide with me and had a wander round. The outdoor activities are great, loads... More

this summer, they have the Gruffalo story telling in the woods. Very entertaining! Also a new bouncy assault course. The kids, aged 7 and 11, always find it fun here. Well done, Thurleigh!
