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

Having visited Thurleigh farm a great number of times in the last 6 years I have always left feeling that I have had good value for money and that I would definitely revisit, a fact that I have expressed to other local parents on more than one occasion.  Unfortunately following my visit with a friend (who had had a very...

Very expensive and hardly anything there! Swings were split and the toys in bad overall condition. Real waste of time. We lasted an hour and left. Felt sorry for my children as I'd said we were going on an exciting day out at a farm! Not exciting at all! What a hole!

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
