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

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

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
