I've been to this place as a child and on the odd occasion have taken my niece here. My main problem is the staff. Some of the staff are knowledgeable and very helpful especially when inquiring about purchasing animals. But unfortunately, most of the keepers/staff don't seem to know a lot about animals. I bought 2 hamsters from them and... More

Located near Luton, the Woodside Animal Farm and Leisure Park is a fun place for young families with lots to do and to see. The are many farm and exotic breed animals to look at, some to handle and even feed together with many attractions; these include tractor rides, crazy golf, bouncy castle and of course the popular funfair area...

Took my mum today who needs a wheelchair, definitely not wheelchair friendly, but as really for children, not totally surprised. Girl on entrance didn't seem to know anything, mums sitting in wheelchair and tells me it's £8 each, when clearly says £5 for disabled and carer £5. Place was very tired, could really do with make-over, lots of empty pens.... More

We're sorry that you were dissapointed with your visit. Woodside Animal Farm is a family friendly petting farm particularly ideal for families with small children, although we welcome visitors of all ages. Our pricing structure is clearly displayed for our visitors to see and our staff are trained to not assume a customer is disabled or of pensionable age so... More

It is years since I have ventured a mile down the road to this park with our son and today we took our nephew and nieces. What a wonderful place with so many different attractions and animals to keep them entertained. Loved the all inclusive price you would normally have to pay on top for, carousel, tea cups, mini golf,... More

There are a lot of farms for families and we've been to most in the area. They vary in quality vastly and I'm glad to say that this is one of the very best! Plenty for the little one to see and do, with animals - exotic and domestic, free rides and even free crazy golf! We will, I'm sure,... More

Had a nice day out here for Father's Day. It is a little tatty round the edges but little girl loved it. What was nice was that once inside the farm you didn't have to pay any extra for the rides/golf etc. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would go again.

It's a quaint, rough around the edges animal park. Kind of like an old seaside town stuck in the country and although snobs will turn their nose up at its imperfections your children will love it. Don't go there expecting London Zoo . Appreciate it for what it is and how friendly and accommodating the staff are. My party of... More

We had read previous reviews and were a bit tentative but my 3 yr old loves animals and we had a mixed party of grandparents aunts and uncles for a birthday weekend. We went here and it exceeded all expectations- the soft play alone would be worth the entry fee! Great cafe, facilities all clean lovely staff loads of different... More

Visited Woodside Animal Farm today. We only wanted a quick 30 minute look around the place as we happened to be passing - to assess whether we wanted to come for a full day another time. It is not clear at all, in my view, where you have to go to buy tickets. We wandered in to a shop and... More

Thank you for your feedback. During quieter periods, instead of the main entrance we admit customers through the shop entrance, where tickets are sold. Our 'latest entrance' policy is there to ensure that customers receive good value for money and have plenty of time to enjoy all of our facilities. We are sorry you were dissapointed. More
