Good for kids

Pet the animals, indoor soft play and outdoor activities. Basic but nice food served in the cafe. All in all a pleasant day out.

I can recommend this farm. We found the animals well kept, plenty of places to clean hands and lots of things to do at no extra charge. They provide you with a timetable of events when you pay to get the most from your visit. The playbarn is a real bonus too. We could have a cuppa and a rest... More

We've been to Hall Hill farm on 3 or 4 occasions, so I thought it was about time to write a review. I visited with my daughter and 4 year old grand-daughter during the Easter Holidays. HHF was fairly busy as you'd imagine, but it's such a big place and with so much to do, you don't feel crowded at... More

Have been to hall hill quite a few times and do enjoy it. The new giant pillow and crazy golf are welcome additions. The petting sections are really good especially the rabbits and guinea pigs. The prices are average for the sort of activity. A suggestion I would have though, would be if there is a birthday party on at... More

We visited on Easter Sunday 2015. We were greeted by the Easter Bunny, with chocolate eggs on arrival (lovely touch). Our first port of call was the chicks, my little one (18 months) loved this. Especially when she got one to hold one. We then had a cuddle with some bunnies. Moving on to sheep/lambs and goats/kids. My little girls... More

Everything at the farm was very well organised and staff were pleasant and helpful. My children especially loved holding the chicks. Although we had a really fun day, we have been to better activity farms for the same price, but all in all a good day!!

I have visited here many times with my nephews and it never fails to impress! The range of animals is great and there are loads of opportunities for the kids to interact with them such as holding chicks, rabbits and guinea pigs, feeding a lamb (seasonal) and feeding the goats. There is a soft play area, outside play area, tractor... More

Thank you for your comments, as a farm attraction we do like to offer lots of animal experiences, and I am delighted to hear we always impress. We are currently looking at new plans for 2016. An independent organisation reported that our tearoom offered good value, but we do appreciate that many people prefer to bring their own picnics and... More

We first visited Hall Hill Farm in 2013 and enjoyed it then. We had a great time there with our kids (now aged 4, 6 and 9) today - admittedly helped by some glorious Easter Monday sunshine - and are sure we'll be back again. We spent 5 hours there and all the things our children enjoyed last time, such... More

We are delighted to hear what a great time you had on Easter Monday. We added the Sheep racing in the summer of 2013, Crazy golf in 2014 and the Giant Bouncy pillow this Easter, and as you comment, they are all included in your admission charge. I am especially pleased that you found all the staff pleasant , as... More
