Great day out for all the family, lots to do and see, huge indoor play area if weather isn't too kind ( more often than not in this part of the world) buy a season ticket if you plan to go back...unlimited visits throughout the year for around £100 per family

Have visited Hall Hill Farm many times as its not too far from where I live. Its not expensive to get in and good value for money. Probably more suited for younger kids. Can be bit chilly and exposed in the winter months. The cafe is also nice and not too expensive.

I took my nephews (8 and 7 years) and niece (4years) to Hall Hill Farm. It was a great day out. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We had dinner in the cafe which was very reasonable in price. There are lots of hands on things to do like holding all the different animals which the children loved to... More

If your stuck to take the kids anywhere this place will entertain them. Admission prices are reasonable. It was just over £20 for a family of four. There are plenty of animals to see and touch. The kids loved feeding the animals and getting close up to them. There is a Lamb National where six lambs run and jump over... More

Lots of carpark. Entrance fee £25 ( family ticket). Fun: lots and lots of it. Examples of animals: chicken, rabbit, pigs, sheeps, highland cattle, donkey (ride for £1), lamaar, goats, etc etc. Lots of wash area, to keep one's little hands clean after feeding animals (feed cost 50p per bag). Kids loved it and we highly recommend it to family... More
