Took the grandchildren 6 and 8 as we had won a free entrance in a local raffle. The kids loved it and you can purchase feed for both 2 and 4 leg animals on entrance. There is a good size car park and easily found. There is ample picnic seating both indoors and outdoors with a restaurant / café on... More

Visited the park with my two children aged 5&8 yrs who both generally enjoyed it, particularly feeding the goats. My daughter wanted an explanation as to why it took 45mins for their lunch to come...sandwiches and a few crisps...fair point and there were lots of others who seemed put out by the long wait. To be fair the cafe was... More

Visited here after overhearing someone mention the name at a different farm. Decent sized farm with a variety of different animals beyond your typical goats and pigs, including Meerkat's and Wallabies to see and feed. The pens are signposted with different facts about each animal which is great! They have a number of "events" throughout the day including bottle feeding... More

Myself, my partner, my father and my 22 month old visited the farm as we are staying at nearby Darwin Forest. With our lodge key we got a discount and the total price for all of us plus tub of feed was £15 which I found very reasonable. We also got an OAP free meal vouchers which was a surprise... More

Visited the park with the family and was pleasantly surprised. Kids had a great time feeding the animals with the feed purchased on the way in. The ferret racing was also excellent fun and well worth catching if you're there! Plenty of play areas for the kids which kept them entertained. Cafe was nice and as it was Thursday the... More

Been with my kids a couple of times and the first thing to say is that it's expensive for what's there. The play areas are quite good but could do with some tlc. The barns are ok but could do with some tlc. The marquee with the bouncy castle is good to sit in and eat your picnic whilst the... More

Have not been here for several years so was a bit doubtful as to the state of the farm. I was very happily surprised. They have made great strides to improve the overall feel and the amenities are very good. There's plenty for the children to play on and even horse rides, although at a cost. They now have a...

Totally disgusted today, and let me tell you, we werent the only ones. Paid £21 for 3 adults, and 2 under twos went free. Went straight to the cafe, the young man serving had no clue, over charging customers, and taking wrong orders. The older lady plating up was dishing food up wrong and never once washed her hands or... More

Fantastic, friendly staff - nothing too much trouble, all staff seemed properly mindful of the needs of disabled people. One of the few attractions we have visited with our brain damaged grand daughter were we felt completely comfortable and that they were happy to have us there. Plenty of animals to see, things to do and reasonable cost for rides... More

We have visited the farm park twice with our 20 month old son and he had a fabulous time! Great variety of animals from sheep to wallabies. Staff were very friendly and one nice chap told us all the names of the donkeys. Great value for money we will definately be back for a third visit!! :-)
