We've been to many farms with our three year old granddaughter but this is one of the better ones. There are plenty of animals, big and small and a selection of playgrounds for kids of all ages. What I thought was a great idea was the fact that there is a free meal deal for A.O.Ps on Thursdays and Fridays.... More

Me and my partner took our 16 month old little girl to the farm today. It was fab. The staff were amazing with us and our daughter and really made the effort for her to meet and sit on her favourite animal (horse) . All the animals were lovely and looked well looked after. Return is a definite for us.

This was the first time we have been to the park, I had heard some good reviews and wanted to check it out ourselves. As a family we have very specific needs, with having a child with special needs and a large buggy to push around. The park ticked all the boxes. Brilliant access and facilities for all the family,...

Had my 3 year olds birthday party here with 8 of her friends and they had an amazing time. The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating, the food was great and just as I had requested. The facilities are top rate with a great variety of animals, young and older for everyone's liking. The additional play areas around the park... More

We loved it here. My son is 3 and helped the keeper feed the meerkats. He also hand fed llamas, cows, horses, goats, pigs, donkeys and bottle fed the lambs. They only had about 6 bottles for the lamb feeding so get there quick! Animal feeding times are posted on a board at the park entrance. There are playgrounds scattered... More

Visited with my three year old boy. Every one of the staff we encountered made a fuss of my little lad, and were polite and professional. There has obviously been investment here recently, with a brand new cafe and some new animal enclosures. Limited food menu, although most will find something that is to their liking. Prices reasonable and food... More

I visited here with my family on a weekday and our 2 year old thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The prices are quite cheap (compared to London) and children under 2 go free. The farm itself is large-ish and if you also want to have a bite to eat you could easily spend about 2 hours there. Along with the usual... More
