Visited today for the first time and we loved it. £7 for an adult was good value 30p for a bag of food. Wish we bought more food as we had a blast feeding the cows they open there mouths and stick there tongues out waiting to be fed. Some of the pigs did the same really entertaining. Fell in... More

2 concessions as we are oldies and one 4year old ( the 3 year old was free) came to 15.00. We went straight to the outside picnic/play area, an "enclosed" area, and were all enjoying ourselves when suddenly about 10 "sweet" little goats came to join our picnic. And by join I meant up on the table eating the children's... More

We decided to visit for the first time and we are all so glad we did. The farm is clean and all of the animals are very well looked after and look they have a wonderful life. The goats walk around with you which is lovely for the kids to experience. There are plenty of different animals for the whole... More

I go with my daughter lily a lot as she loves feeding the goats. Sometimes special events are laid on like sheep shearing and food festivals which are well worth catching. It's a small place but we love it and it's tranquil. The cafe is excellent too and the staff are lovely! I recommend fully!

We've been visiting for the last 5 years with our little girl and this place is FANTASTIC! A proper, small, rustic farm animal experience - loads better than Jimmy's rip off Farm! You can get really close to all their animals and there's a pleasant short walk alongside a river/stream with ducks and wildlife. The tea room serves a great... More

I found baylham to be a lovely place to while away a sping afternoon with a 3 year old. The owners and staff are very welcoming, the small cafe provides very tasty home cooked food and the animals are well cared for and fun to interact with. There is not a huge amount to see but we were very pleasantly... More

Its nice to visit a real farm and to give children a chance to get up close to the animals. My 6 yr old granddaughter and 2 yr grandson really enjoyed holding the lambs! I was really impressed by the animal welfare and such healthy looking animals. And a nice little café and shop to finish the day in!

We visited today with my 7 year old niece and 3 year old nephew and we had a brilliant day out. The sun was out and the farm was looking at it's best. Both of the children really enjoyed seeing the animals and walking around the farm discovering the swing on the tree and chatting about all the animals they... More
