Have young children and teenager and all loved it. Keep eye out for the talks and chance to feed animals. Donkey rides are fab along with the barrel rides and tractor rides. Love the additional indoor barn with toys and face painting. Toilets tidy enough and plenty chances to wash hands and use gels for cleanliness. Outside area clean and... More

Pony rides were available for a small fee, all the animals were healthy looking and in clean... More

Really impressed with this place. Reasonably priced. Well laid out and very helpful and knowledgeable staff who were really good with younger children taking time to explain how to hold the rabbits and guinea pigs. Plenty of hand sanitation and hand washing facilities. Plenty of space for the grandchildren to run around too. Would go back.

The animals are well cared for and all the animals were clean and healthy, and the staff looking after the animals are so passionate about them. All I can say is 'You... More

My friend and I visited the farm with our 2 girls both under 3 today and we had an absolute ball! Excellent facilities, lovely staff with so much knowledge and time for our children and well cared for animals. We saw the lambs being fed, the piglets being fed and Blossom the cow being milked. All in all an excellent... More

We visited Hall Hill Farm with our 2 grandchildren (5 and 3). We were greeted by a very friendly member of staff, who took the trouble to explain where everything was, and times of events. She also emphasised the need to wash hands after handling animals; bonus points for health and safety! We were all very impressed with the interaction... More

We went with our 4 1/23 yr old. She loved everything! It was amazing value for money, the staff were lovely. The whole place was clean and fantastically well cared for. We loved the sheep racing! There was so much to see and do. I totally recommend this place for anyone with kids.

Had a great day with my son (16 months old) and the grandparentals at Hall Hill Farm. Lots of cool animals to see and feed and some rides thrown in for good measure. Try to time your visit to see the sheep racing, which is very funny. Tea room was ok too. Got to hold rabbits, guinea pigs, chicks, feed... More
