We booked a Hawkforce experience - brilliant! 3 lovely staff (Nicky, Jess and Badger) gave us the most fantastic time with these amazing birds of prey. We watched them fly out in the field and were also able to hold the birds ourselves for a good long time afterwards. Brilliant day. Lots of information. Friendly and fun. I would recommend... More

Free entry is good but was told all that was open was the farm and the play area which my daughter couldn't play in because was for older children, so went to the farm looked round in about 5 minutes, saw...

My wife and I had been keen to visit the Hop farm for a while as I had visited as a child and wanted to see if it was as I remembered. Sadly, my expectations were dashed. Being a keen photographer I wanted to capture some images of the hop farm and the machinery used back in the day. However... More

free entry yes but cost of rides £3.00 for 5 min is a total rip off, all the rides and entertainment should be £1.00 with no charge for adults who are only there to bring the kids with very little for them to do but spend money. Management must get on top of this sooner than later, the free crazy... More

I went with my toddler and as it was November, I checked their website to make sure it was open. The website said "open everyday 10-5pm". So I drove the 50 minutes down the motorway to discover that yes they are indeed open, but nothing inside was. The cafe smelling of fried food and the extremely poor petting zoo were... More

Visited here years ago when you had to pay to get in and had a lovely time. Visited last month with 3 of my 4 children and was very disappointed. They have now changed it to free entry but once inside you have to pay for pretty much everything. All the rides and activities are now chargeable. You pay for... More

it is difficult to complain about somewhere with free entry, but having driven from Ashford following the brown attraction signs from the motorway we expected a far more professional setup. Arriving at 12:30, the first thing we wanted was a light lunch, hoping for something like sandwiches and reasonably priced, especially something for our 2 year old. The olive cafe... More

I reviewed the fireworks display last year. Well we returned again this year but were slightly disappointed. Although the fireworks display itself was still excellent (as good as it was last year) all of the other features that we had enjoyed last year weren't available this year. To be fair, the ticket price was half what it was last year,... More

This place have a lovely mix of things to keep the young ones entertained. The animals are great and we loved the Shire Horses and Birds of Prey. There are also plenty of rides to keep the kids entertained, a lovely tea room / cafe and a pretty good pub with reasonably priced food. Great place to spend the whole... More
